UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic. Probably 7% version.
Sweetish aroma has raspberries and vanilla with some hops. Flavour has malt, smoke and licorice. Really creamy and smooth palate. Not a typical DP, feels like a smoked porter. Really good anyway.

Draught, Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Deep dark brown looks with a smallish tan head. Sweet aroma and flavour of dark fruits, booze and malts. Some chocolatey notes lurking. Alcohol fairly prominent. Not my favourite style, but I enjoyed this.

(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20111213) The beer poured deep dark brown. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, molasses and hops. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, hops, mild roastedness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, hoppy and bitter. A different doppelbock but the hoppiness worked this time.
