4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy deep reddish brown with a small slightly fizzy beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is very malty with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, prominent bourbon, tingling alcohol, charred wood, butterscotch hard candy, pecan pie, raisins, plums in brandy, caramelized almonds, toasted coconut, sherry, dried cherries, moist soil and hints of hay. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and malty with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, bourbon, mineral rich soil, charred wood, raisins, coconut milk, caramelized almonds, roasted hazelnuts, prunes, hay, butterscotch and tummy warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny fizzy, round, tiny sticky sweet and near full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and malty with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, burnt cookies, hay, soil, charred wood, raisins and bourbon. Another BA wonder from North Coast. A malt dream aged in barrels and matured till perfection basically. I imagine some more time will make this more balanced, nicely oxidized and even more complex but till then this beer is perplexingly good so enjoy it now and in the future if you’re a malt-head.
