Flimsy foam, very bubbly and lively beer. Smells nice to fruit and hard roasted malt. The taste is soft, round and full-bodied. It starts with a distinctly good malt sweetness, which increases in a warming alcohol strength to round of a good and very well balanced hop bitterness. The fruit is a bit nondescript but very present. Without doubt a great tribute to the king of beers, Gambrinus, after which the beer is named.

En rigtig god dansk dobblet bockpå 9,2 % Det bliver lavet i et gærkar fra 60’erne, og øllen kan fint tåle at lagres. En fyldig smag, som måske kommer at de masse "ting" der er i øllen, fx råfrugt.

abemorsten (3265) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2015
0,33 l flaske. Gave fra Eva og Thomas. Klar og dyp mahognifarget kropp med en hvit ring av skum langs kanten. Tung maltsødme og søte tørkede frukter på nesa. Dette kjennes også godt i munnen selv om her er det mer karamell enn søt frukt, og i tillegg er det en balanserende bitterhet der som varer lenge. Dette er en fyldig og kraftig øl som er myk og god å drikke.

gorkogrlo (233) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark red color with medium head, which actually exist quite long. In aroma some chocolate, dark fruits, rum and grass. Flavor: cheery, porto, toast. Some cask character in aftertaste. Malty. Not too sweet for bock. Good beer.
