Franzen (429) - - 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.

Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in September 2013. Clear amber with a small medium tan head. Aroma of malt, bourbon, caramel and some alcohol. Taste of caramel, bourbon, light vanilla, dried fruit and malt. Sweetish with a full body. Some warming alcohol in the finish. I still have one bottle left, I wonder if it will improve even more with further aging?

mcberko (10568) - 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.
