Foerdifuxx (166) - Franconia, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
Dark red amber coloured beer with a fine, medium, medium lasting, off-white head. Caramel, herbs, french brandy, light dark fruits, light chocolate cake and roasted malt in general . Very malty in taste, good portion of warming alcohol, medium to long, roast malt dominated finish. Oily texture, medium to full body, soft carbonation. World Beer Cup Gold Award 2012, it’s incredible solid but i fail to unterstand the gold rating. I guess i’m not skilled enough.

TorbenJensen (1435) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
Its sweet aroma with clear caramel touch, taste of malt tones of caramel and hops in the background, and its elegance in the transition between sweet and bitter makes it an extremely delicious and tasty double bock completely to my taste.
