Belgo (154) - Køge, - FEB 22, 2010
Draught at Ørsted Ølbar. Pours very dark reddish brown with an off white head. Crystal clear. The colour is a bit too dark for my taste but otherwise a nice appearance. The aroma is very malty with caramel, fudge and dried fruit and a hop note, that is very present vis a vis the average Doppelbock but very downplayed for a Mikkeller beer. On the palate there is nice carbonation to lift heavy malts and make this quite drinkable. Finishes more hoppy and with more bitterness than usual for the style, but it works very well with the sweet and malty flavours.

Dark brown color with brown head. Aroma has lots of dark fruits and brown sugar. Taste follows with dark fruits, coffee, cocoa and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. A really good doppelbock, one of the best of the style.

Grzesiek79 (4000) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Piwo pięknie pachnące wisniowka, czerwonym winem i leśnymi owocami. W smaku sliwka wegierka, trochę nut cherry, alkohol obecny ale szlachetny, rozgrzewający i o długim finiszu. Karmel czekolada i wanillia. Troche zbyt słodkawe ale ogolnie wielka przyjemność z degustacji tego degustacyjnego piwa.

mgajdaczewa (1673) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 9, 2016
W aromacie karmel, ale i sporo nut quasi belgijskich, suszonych owoców, cukru kandyzowanego, tak jakby piwo było refermentowane po belgijsku. W smaku stosunkowo wytrawne, leciutko alkoholowe, szlachetne nuty karmelu i czekolady z orzechami. Mało intensywny w smaku, za to bardzo pijalny. Mimo bardzo quadowego aromatu charakter doppelbocka został zachowany. Bardzo dobre piwo!
