Appears dark brown with (only) moderate clarity, but has a pleasant toasty malt aroma that verges on roasty notes - a good layering of melanoidins here. The flavour is also complex and malty, though a slightly harsh and lingering bitternesss follows, which doesn’t detract that much. Mouthfeel is about medium. It’s a nice beer, easy to drink without discernable alcohol heat

Bosskie (603) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
Pitch black, nice foamy white head. Smell is coffee chocolate with dark fruit and cherries. Roasted nuts, some honey. Subtle touch of citrus. Taste starts full with lots of coffee bitterness. Followed by sour hoppiness and a nice fizz. Finish is astringent and lemony. Metal. Some ash in the finish.

Pours a thick, dark brown with no head. Aroma is chocolate and licorice. Very smokey, strong licorice taste. Not unpleasant but I’ve had much better.

Borresteijn (5472) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2015
33cl Bottle from Melgers. NO (!!) gusher. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of raisins, dark fruits, chocolate (Nutella), hops, roasted malts. Flavour follows, medium sweet, fruits and chocolate, roasted malts, liquorice, bitter finish. Medium bodied at best. Tasty Dutch bock, and finally a KD beer without excessive carbonation.

oh6gdx (22982) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottled@AIH40 (from biernavigator). Deep brown colour with a beigeish brown big head. Very lively when opening. Aroma is mild toasted notes, some wood, mild resin as well as some alcohol and strange sweetness. Flavour is somewhat spicy, along with the same elements as found in the aroma. Slight infection probably as it’s got some tartness and the gushing effect.

TBone (14267) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle 30cl (AIH40)
Dark brown color, medium-sized brownish head. Aroma is dry yeasty, some spicey notes, licorice and bread. Medium to full-bodied. Front is nice licorice, then some vegetables. Roasted aftertaste. Finish a bit watery. Typically this Dutch doppelbock feels like an ale.
