[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ bergstaden ][ Trade ][ Celebrator Glass ][ 11.24.14 ]
>> Pours clear red amber with larger yellow beige foam. Good retention and good lacing. Nose is Special B dates, black cherry, spiced fruit cake, zucchini bread, cinnamon bun. Taste is rich caramel, butterscotch, flan, rum soaked fruit cake. Rich bodied, medium-high, with surprisingly no alcohol notes. Top notch with a super clean lagered bodied. This one is pretty boss and I don’t even like doppelbock.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mørk brun tåkete med fingerhøyt beige skum. Malt, fudge, sirup, lett kaffe og lukt av røde frukter. Kjenner tydelig alkoholen, men kjenner også den bitre humle, mørke sjokoladen og kaffen. Medium kullsyre, litt sticky.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 0.33l bottle @ Bergen Ølfestival. This one pours a watered down Cola brown blurry looking body with a small quickly sidesticking beige top. It has a nice gentle sweetness on the nose, I get a good caramel, some soft wet dark fruits, raisins and if I look well and long perhaps a swift of wood. It has a lovely flavor this. Lots or red dried raisins and cranberries. Damn, this is actually surprisingly tasty. There’s vanilla, it’s beyond recognize infused with wood. It’s also surprisingly lightdrinkable and light on the mouthfeel. A bit sticky sweet, but I feel it suits it quite nice and it has a gentle prickling carbonation level.
