A Mes rate: Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest ’08
An excellent deep dark mahogany pour with a good beige head. A superb colour. A big alcoholic, fruity bock with some lovely sweet malt and some really nice warmth. Luscious mouthfeel and at this point the best of the evening. Straight forward but very enjoyable.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle@Home. Brown sugar and prune aroma. Dark ruby color, light brown head, very nice lace. Sweet, bitter, light roasted, bit sugary, prune, cinnamon. Soft, full and burning. Very pleasant, like a X-Mas version of Kasteel. Thanks Yngwie.

harrisoni (14016) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2007
33cl bottle from KnutAlbert, thanks very much Knut. Very very deep brown/red with thin tan head. Nice dark malt aroma, some soy sauce. Strong dark and rather good. Little bit of whiskyish malt. Hey, not subtle, but good.

Gr0ve (2150) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2007
330 ml bottle. Very dark brown. Lets a little reddish light through. Medium-sized off-white creamy head. Estery aroma with hints of Belgian yeast character. Rich malt flavours with a cutting sharp hop bitterness. Warming alcohol. Smooth roasted dark malt flavours. Finishes more on the dry side because of the crisp hops. Feels a little too clean, but still there is lots of flavour and aroma. One of the better beers from Norwegian macros.

Laegraid (37) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2007
Tasted 22. Nov -07. But a 2006 bottle. This is a fantastic beer, its very hard to detect any flavors except a sweet maltiness. This do not mean its dull, its the greatest malt taste I have ever found in a beer. You can’t really taste that it is a 9,9% beer, maybe because it is a year old. Overall a very good beer in the winter months

TheEpeeist (3380) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2007
33 cl bottle. Black with ruby edges and a pied tan-white head. My first sniff was of tar and molasses. Swirling reveals coconut, marzipan and licorice. Black coffee mixed with Cran-Grape; touch of chocolate. Dandelion greens, oily, earthy with muted spices. Odd stuff.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2007
(Bottle) Pours dark brown with red hints. Sweet caramel, flower nectar and wet crisp bread maltiness in aroma with notes of marzipan and sugar. Malty, sweet caramel flavour with notes of fruits, chocolate and some flowers. Some tiny hints of clove and raisins both in the aroma and in the flavour. Slightly too fiery with a lingering alcohol sting. Medium body.

rlgk (11344) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle. Black color, creamy brownish head. Malty vanilla aroma that is a bit roasted. Malty flavor but too much alcohol for my liking.

ekstedt (5568) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. Deep copper, medium beige head. Roasted malt aroma, with dusty and earthy notes, and a strong alcohol bite. Medium bodied and silky smooth. Dry and well balanced. A good doppelbock but it would probably gain from less alcohol.

yespr (31625) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2007
From 33 cL bottle. Pours reddish/amber with a white head. Dry raisin and dry aroma. Very dry liqourice and alcohol flavour. Malty. Dry finish. That was really good, surprisingly :)
