patricks110 (1963) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
Amazing brew. Pours a completely opaque black with a thick, foamy beige head. Creamy and thick the head sticks around forever. The aroma is typical of doppelbocks with heavy grainy malts, toasted notes, burnt toast, light cocoa bean. Rich and heavy first sip with a crazy complexity and heavy alcohol presence. Vanilla bean, a bit of licorice root, espresso, cocoa. Nice and heavy like a Baltic porter.Full body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Holy crap what a good brew.

adster (506) - HUNGARY - APR 11, 2015
Sötét, rubinos árnyalatokat megcsillantó testtel tűnik elő a duplabakként megjelölt Mikkeller specialitás, ujjnyi vastag, bézs színű habot produkálva. Kissé meglepő módon leginkább fekete ipák tapasztalása során felbukkanó sötét hangulatú, egyszerre pirított és komlós világú, növényes aromájú, ázott szegfűszáras jegyeket megcsillantó illatok kerülnek előtérbe, melyek mellett egy kevés karamell és csokoládéba burkolt maláta is leteszi vaskos kontúrral meghúzott névjegyét. Közepes testét éjfekete csokoládé, ízlésesen pörkölt maláta, nem utolsó sorban pedig karcos komló szerkezete feszíti meg, mely utóbbi elem számomra legalábbis igencsak főszereplője az előadásnak. Korántsem állítom, hogy stílusidegen jegyek uralmától terhes főzettel van dolgunk, mindenesetre egy, a szokásosnál talán komló-központúbb alkotásról beszélhetünk, már amennyiben utunkat a duplabakok specifikus komponensei által kitaposott ösvényen kívánjuk bejárni. A dán Megváltó ez esetben és ebben az értelemben tehát nem feltétlenül mutat rokonságot német megfelelőjével, s bár összességében egy remek italról van szó, ha a kategória keretein belül szemlélődve járunk el, nem biztos, hogy otthonosan érezzük majd magunkat. Ettől elvonatkoztatva azonban feltétlenül megéri elmerülni a kakaós, pirított magvas, karamellás és szigorú arculatú komlós egyvelegben, mely önmagában véve egy szertelenül hibátlan remekmű.

Marduk (3621) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 24, 2015
750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear copper colour. Small size, yellow head, stays. Malty, caramel, sweet, raisins, faint mint in aroma. Roast, malty, grainy, raisins, dusty in taste. Medium bitterness. Roasted caramel and dusty malts in taste. Hop bitterness is gone wrong in here. Alcohol is well covered. Soft carbonation.

750ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Sweet raisiny aroma, bran and other rabbitfood. Some heavy esters, but a little alcohol too, even through the sugars. Stodgy, a little marmitey in its yeastiness. Heavy and sticky, but not boozy per se. Strange rubberiness in the taste. Odd burntness in the finish, a bit dirty, and a little bit yeasty. Even more booze comes over in the aroma later, but not offensively so, as the sugars cover it. A bit of a weird one, no reason for a beer like this to exist when the Germans do decent strong bocks.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Dark brown coloured with red glare, medium to big sized brown head, pleasant caramel and alcohol nose. Sweet malty, caramel, dried fruits and alcohol with notes of hops and licorice. Mild touch of chocolate in rather alcoholic finish. To be honest there’s nothing special here but I have to admit it’s tasty brew.

Vestergaard (838) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark ruby red amber with a big, frothy, off white head. Aroma has lots of sweet chocolate, caramel malts and in general just huge amounts of malt. Figs, jam, strawberry and tobacco. Taste is sweet, malty chocolate with a slight hoppy end. Caramel sweetness, but still a pleasant beer to drink, also because the alcohol is hidden really well. Medium carbonation.

Brown beer, medium beige head. Nose is malts, caramel, hops, sweet hints. Flavor is dark fruit, malts, caramel, dark chocolate, licorice. Hops, licorice and caramel in the finish. Pretty smooth stuff, very drinkable for the ABV. Nice balance. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

Quite intense maltiness, light roasted note, caramel, decent hops, intense fruitiness, berries, nuts, dried fruits, bit warming. Moderate to intense sweetness, moderate bitterness with bittersweet finish. Great brew!
