3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Bottle. Dark brown colour. Stable head. Complex aroma, rum, mollasses, tobaco, nuts, some roasty tones. Taste is quite the same, sweet, plus a lot of alcohol in taste (decreases the drinkability), roasted bitterness towards the end. Good one.
