dark mahogany colour, medium sized brownish head; aroma of figs, roasted sugar and malt, biscuit and butter (as if a ’shortbread’ was solved in it) and some honey; similar taste: very malty with some caramel, biscuit, figs and hints of alcohol; full-bodied excellent doppelbock; I love it!

Znakomity doppelbock, rozgrzewajacy i pelny w smaku. Nuty karmelu mocy alkoholowej i slodowej podstawy. Finiszwytrawno slodki i lekko goryczkowy. Bardzo ciemny to doppelbock. Piana bezowa mocno zbita trwala wasiasta i obfita. Czego chciec wiecej.

50 cl bottle @ lusikka, BBE 11/2013
Aroma has berries, strong malty notes, some wood and hints of cherry juice. Flavour is rather malty with berries, some raisins and juicy notes. Better than I expected.

500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark ruby red colour with a white beigeish head. Aroma of toasted malts, cherries, bread and some licorice. Flavour of toasted malts, strong bready notes, raisins, licorice, tart-ish notes, syrup and some nuts. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a warming, malty, slightly sweet, very subtle tart finish. Well balanced, as this is not too sweet and not overly malty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle. Pours dark red brown, small head. Starts very dark malty, light sour, later roasted, light oily. In the second row you can fell significant the alcohol with salty hints. The sweetness comes very late and on a low level. Not really that, what I expected.
