3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled brew tasted in December 2010 rated falsely as St. G. B. Schwarzbock) Clear dark brown pour with a small, pale brown head, which collapses quickly. Sweet, dried fruity and spicy nose. The malty aroma brings raisins, caramell, licorice, toast and notes of grassy/herbal hops along, flavour’s dried fruity with some chocolate. Slick and moderate sticky mouthfeel. Gently warming finish escorted by dark chocolate and spices, which leaves a toasty-dried fruity aftertaste behind. Enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. Clear deep amber body with an off-white head. Aroma is mainly malty and gives a sweet impression. Flavor confirms the sweetness. Rather sweet on the malt side with dry fruit and not so much more, but that’s OK in this case. It’s simply a lovely sweet malty bock with a fine body, strong, sweet aftertaste and a hint of warming alcohol without being boozy.

Bottle looks really good. Gusher! Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts intense malty, fine roasty, not too much. Some fine malty-earthy notes. Modest alcoholic. Warming-malty finish. Not bad!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A tasty bock, however nothing really to write home about as far as doppelbocks are concerned. Beautiful pour, although the aroma was very faint. The flavor too is not very bold and makes for a mild brew from beginning to end. It’s alcohol content is masked by its sweet silky nature. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Wonderful clear, ruby red glowing, mahogany colour with average, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma in typical dark Doppelbock style: caramel, toffee, a touch of malt spicyness. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet malty with identical characteristic, dry hop notes compensate portions of the sweetness. Typical, good.
