Franzen (380) - - SEP 19, 2013
Lots of fudge aroma with hints of milk chocolate and dark syrup. Some vanilla and vineous notes are present as well but at very low levels. Dark red, clear with frothy foam. Really sweet vanilla fudgy taste with some roastiness in the background. Very nice and round taste with some alcohol present but not at disturbing levels. The finsish is long lasting with some vineous notes combined with some sweetness and vanilla. The longer the finish goes on the more to the vanilla with hints of fudge it goes. The body is medium to full and the texture is creamy. A relly nice beer although pretty mighty. According to style description (from SHBF) it is to my judgement a very good example of a doppelbock and one that has sparked an interest in the style for me.

Hazy brown color, small white head. Sweet, alcohol, raisin scent. Raisin, alcohol, sweet taste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness.

mcberko (8308) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap at Apex, pours an opaque dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted nuts and caramel malts. Flavour is big and boozy, with caramel malts, bourbon barrels and boozy. Big, boozy and sweet, but well-designed. A little abrasive and sweet, but I think it works well.

fletchfighters (1200) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2014
Thanks to Baguio for the beer. 500 ML bottle Ruby amber color with a light tan collar. Bits of spotty lacing Nose is mostly barrel. Brown sugar, oak, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, and bourbon soaked raisin. Taste is eerie similar. Very barrel forward. Is there a base beer?? Medium carbonation, slick and slightly syrupy. ABV well hidden. Beer shows that North can barrel age as well as anybody.
