50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark copper-mahogany color with a small head. Malts, caramel, some toasted notes, ripe fruits and faint yeast. Malty flavor, not that sweet though, some dark berries, yeast and caramel, faint wooden notes on the finish. Malty, full-bodied and not overly sweet. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l bottle at Timo A’s. Dark amber color. Sweetish aroma of raisins and dark bread. Sweet bready and raisiny taste with toasted nuts, honey and some herbal notes. Warming alcohol tastes clearly and dryes the finish. Fairly good dobbelbock but higher alcohols and bit on a high side.
