The taste is rich, earthy, blueberry, stewed fruits, warming alcohol, umami, wood, dirt, seaweed, salted liquorice with dry finish. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Great depth, balance, interesting, tasty... Very nice.

Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Paul for this Scottish whale. Pours black-brown with a frothy, khaki head. The nose has burnt wood, dark chocolate, hits of dark bread. Medium sweet flavor with dry, leathery dark fruits, baking cocoa, raisins, faint salt. Full bodied, oily, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with sticky dark sugars, burnt wood, rich dark fruits, dark chocolate, baking cocoa. Delicious. Great depth, very well balanced. Yes, wonderful beer.

Douberd (2170) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter, ABV 11.2%, many thanks to Lonick! Pours totally black and you can see it it’s a thick one. A brown thin line of foam and bubbles on top, clinging on the glass. Very alcoholic aroma but without being annoying, burnt malts, prunes,liquorice, notes of dark chocolate. Great taste, lots of dark and roasted malts, alcohol that amplifies them, old wood, light vanilla and porto notes. Super thick body, low caronation, light alcohol burning. Excellent beer!

Bottle from Cornelius. Raisins, prunes, chocolate, booze. No head. Lovely little fizz on the end on the tongue. Very smooth indeed. Long afterglow. Top.
