3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml. bottle, porus a small brown head, amber colour. Smells of caramel, chocolate, banana and dark fruits, with hints of vanilla. Very sweet palate, though I found the body too light. Taste of dark fruits, chocolate, xerry or port wine and a hint of coffee in the end, though it keeps the sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, chestnut color, thin head quickly dissipating to nil. Rich aroma of caramel, malt, plum, dried fruits, raisins and spices. Taste is malty, caramel sweet, dried fruits and spices again. Medium to low carbonation, medium body, alcohol well hidden. The aroma and taste reminds of Christmas, a bit like gluhwein. Very good doppelbock..

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
