1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml can, clear dark gold colour, medium frothy mostly vanishing white head marginal lacing. Medium to heavy malty aroma of grain and hay with mild floral hops and a fruity complexion. Taste is initially moderately sweet, turning into a mildly bitter and moderately sweet finish with an alcoholic feel. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel average carbonation. Marginally less vomit-inducing than most booze-lagers.

33cl Bottle, tfs Harmen! Clear golden Amber colour, white head. Aroma of cheap strong lager, sweet, alcohol, fruity, something nasty as well. Flavour is very sweet, malty, alcohol, fusels, fruits, sharp cheap nasty stuff, alcoholic finish. Medium bodied at best. So nice of them to call this a doppelbock.

Bronze beer with a white foam. Sweet and slightly herbal aroma. Very sweet. Mildly carbonated. No bitterness. Quite alcoholic. After a few sips starts slowly coming back up. Disturbing.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.33l can. Will, it’s crystal clear and kinda golden on the looks. A big white fizzing away white lager head is placed on the top of this one. Smells like copper coins with corn and dust. Pretty bad really. Rusty sweet flavors. It has a good oily feeling in the mouth and a above average carbonation level. Strong and somewhat boozy flavors. Sweet, sticky and really malty. Again, lots of copper coins in the taste. Metallic undertones. Nah, I’ll drink til cause I’m beer-thirsty but I refuse to say that I enjoyed this for even one second. 04.08.2014

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pretty meaningless beer. Taste is like Olvi 5% with some booze added. Don’t really make any justice to the name doppelbock, the lack of malt is obvious. STay away fro this!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can on the Viking ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is big malt. The flavour is strong bitter with a boozy alcoholic malt bitter palate with a bubbly mouthfeel and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles. Junio de 2013, con cad. Para 17-07-2013. sabores y aromas maltosos y cereales nórdicos con ligeros toques tostados y ligeramente dulces, con un cuerpo medio de 8.5 vol. que le da cierta sensación alcohólica, aunque no parece combinar bien del todo sus partes. Normal, se podría repetir.
