Yorker (1344) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2014

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Caramel, dark roasted malts, and hints of coffee fill the nose. While a solid brown pour with a handsome espresso head produces normal lacing. The taste is robust, malt forward and somewhat bitter. Richly roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, and a smokey peat note. Medium body and medium carbonation. Bitterish dry finish. Slight suggestions alcohol in the finish. Overall, this is a complex brew that improves as it warms.

weihenweizen (1867) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a glass. Black with fluffy light brown head. Aroma is dark fruit, medium body, medium/well carbonated, and little lacing. Taste is roasted malt, smoke, dark fruit, and hints of alcohol. This is as much as a strong dark belgian ale as a doppelbock. Hell this could easily save two people.

"called a doppel and a triple bock. not like any doppel i’ve had. less bready, more extreme caramel, brown sugar, alcohol, sweet fruity. pretty good, but also pretty in your face."

Pours dark and mysterious. Very complex, with dark fruit, chocolate, leather and spices. Sweet but not cloying.

Foffern (1294) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle at home. BB 10.1.2014. The colour is deep reddish brown and with a big, creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, leather, coffee, dried fruit, rye bread, some alcohol and a good dose of hops. Complex. Fruity flavour with much hops at first, and then goes into a chocolate middle stage before ending quite roasted. Alcohol warmth in the background. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. An incredible complex and compact doppelbock. Is rich with a lot of hops still very present after over 2 years of aging.

neongolden (542) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
(750mL bottle from LCBO, cellared ~2.5 years) Pours a clear dark brown with a moderate pillowy tan head, loads of lace. Aroma of raisin and prune, toffee malts, leather, tobacco, light smoke/chocolate, scotch (peat?), perhaps something herbal. Very complex nose at any rate. On the palate, rich chocolatey malt and cherry-type fruit at first, caramel, somewhat sweet. Drier in the middle with more leather/wood/herbal character creeping in. Towards the finish, quite dry, coffee grounds, wood, tobacco, smoke and ash, feels like a whack of bittering hops lend medicinal, menthol character. Some sweetness to the aftertaste but detectable alcohol and those hops leave it dry and tingly on the tongue, a nice surprise. Full, rich body with moderate carb. This is a weighty beer, but it is a lot drier and more drinkable than I expected from the style. Very complex too. Glad to be sharing such a big bottle with my girlfriend, but each sip showcases new layers too.

jkwood04 (4155) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 8, 2014
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. Aroma of roasted and toffee and caramel malts, some dough, hints of alcohol, and notes of dark fruits. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.
