4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, BB 20-02-14, large sample. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruit, hint of mocha, dark chocolate. Medium bitter in taste, touch of biscuity sweetness. Wow, I was not expecting this. Lots of roasted malts almost turning this into a stout. Full bodied. Quite fruity finish. As I had no expectations, I was pleasantly surprised.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml Bottle (shared)
Allmost black beer with a frothy tan head.
Aroma: caramel malts,roasted malts yeast and something close to black olives in the background.
Taste: starts with quite roasted malts then goes over in a more fruity hoppy tones, before it finished with caramelised and much more roasted malts and a hint of coffee.
Slightly Sticky Texture, Medium carbonation and body
Not really a Doppelbock something of a hybrid of bock and a Stout, but quite nice in it’s own way.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a frothy tan head. The aroma is creamy caramel malt and yeast. The flavour is medium to strong bitter. Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation and a creamy texture with a bitter sweet, spicy hop palate. Very drinkable, but could probably use less bubbles.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle poured into a tulip. ABV 8%
Opens with a loud pop that scared me to death! Pours an almost black beer with some dark ruby shades when hold against the light. Tall and thick beige head, with low retention for the biggest part but after it has collapsed to a one finger sized, it holds pretty good. Light lacing on the glass.
Dark malts on the aroma, smell of black olives at first that gives its place to a hazelnut one but without ever leaving, hints of alcohol.
Great taste! Roasted malts, chocolate, a little bit of vanilla, hints of smoke. Alcohol is notable but not annoying at all.
Medium thick body, good carbonation with a light bite.
Really great beer, I will be keeping an eye for it.
