This Bock from Mikkeller is called Frelser. Means Savior in Danish. The name is a subtle reference to all Bocks Mother: Salvator. Originally the monks brewed Salvator because they needed a very strong and rich beer during Lent. Do not drink this beer instead of a meal, it contains 11% alcohol.

Shared at Cafe Viking, Nørrebro, Copenhagen. Close to an ultimate imperial bock, heavy, but disguised alcohol. Nice head, medium carbonation. Hazelnuts, caramel and smooth hoppyness, balances well with the malts. Two sips and i was hooked.

750 c&c. Pours very dark ruby with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Aroma is like cola and medium dark reddish fruit. Full bodied with near creamy carbonation. It’s very fruity - like dark cherry? It’s very malty. And I think I’m getting chocolate and coffee. Heat? Gotta search for it. Extremely tasty.

phaleslu (9425) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2010
750 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a cloudy reddish-brown color with a beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, toast, cola, nuts, brown sugar, graham cracker, and nuts. Flavor of chocolate and caramel malts, nuts, brown sugar, toast, cola, leaves, dried fruits, and grass. I have scribbled down that there was something vaguely "Euro" in this beer but not sure if I was referring to the malts or hops. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a toasty, malty mouthfeel. One of the guys drinking this was calling it a "triple bock", as it’s an imperial doppelbock, more or less. The booze is hidden in the nose and flavor, though, and it’s a cool beer.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2010
750ml bottle. The pour yields a deep, inky, violet-burgundy body with a thin, bubbly head of dark khaki froth. A solid, unbroken sheet of lacing coats the glass almost entirely. The aroma is loaded with dark fruits, overflowing with stewed raisins and figs in the forefront, followed by some tempered cocoa roast, toasted tree nuts, and some boozy, sherry-like character. Earthen hops are present, but primarily serve a backup role to the mostly sweet fruitiness. Flavors comes through with monstrously sweet caramel malt, again with dark, stewed, concentrated raisins, figs, and dates. Toasted nuts, mild hops, and some earthy, dry, yeasty bread are all that keep this from being over-the-top sugary. The palate sports a big body that is thinned only by the excessive alcohol, which brings a warm to hot, boozy finish. Carbonation is moderate an unobtrusive. Overall, there is good fruit depth and some supportive roast character, but the sweetness and booziness ultimately serve as detractors. Decent, but far from great.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Draft during CBC Chicago. Pours a clear dark rich mahogany with a frothy light tan head. Nutty aroma, vinous, rich, bit of toast, old ale, nutty. Flavor is same but more hoppy, nutty, more chocolate and roast, touch of something tart, especially in the finish, a bit of that palsticy yeast and pine character, hides the alcohol beautifully, cherry notes. Medium bodied, fluffy carbonation, not sticky, drinks very well.

beerguy101 (5359) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Sampled on 10/8/2010. This dopple/triple bock pours a dark brown color from a 750ml corked and caged bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with nice retention and good lacing. Aroma is malty, bready and sweet, touches of brown sugar and raisins. A medium to full bodied dopplebock. The malts are caramel, bready, hints of chocolate and cookie. The hops are earthy. Nice carbonation. A touch of alcohol bite, but not bad for 11%. Very nice sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2010
750 ml "champagne" bottle, kindly shared by my beerpal Christian. ABV is 11%. "Triple Bock" with Hallertauer and Horizon hops. Very dark ruby colour, nearly black. Big to moderate beige head. Oaky aroma, notes of dark dried fruits, vinous notes. Oaky flavour, much the same elements as the aroma, but not too sweet. Distinct hoppy bitterness in the finish.
