Desverger (8293) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2016
Bottle from Spar, Gudhjem, Bornholm - brown pour with off white head. Overt sweet malty, with notes of caramel, toffee, some nutty notes, dark fruity notes, brown sugar, light spice, but overall a touch too sweet (even for me)

Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Big thanks to Chris for pulling this bottle from his vault. Cheers! Pours clear amber with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds funky earth, toasty bread and dough. Medium sweet flavour, a bit doughy, with some ripe fruits. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish with more bready malts, mellow ripe fruits. OK overall.

TorbenJensen (1457) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2015
It is a beautiful amber beer with coarse foam that is after some time, but leaves a solid continuous layer on top. Smells of malt and caramel, but does not leave the great aromatic experience as some other bocks do. Seems almost a little anonymous. The taste is somewhat sweet to type, but only briefly before it offers a slightly fruity taste of berries. Caramel and roasted malt spoils the taste buds and a sufficiently prolonged hop bitterness in the final invokes some residual sweetness in the finish. It is a classic and very nice bock, just a bock as a bock should be.

PapaVillum (858) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 6,9 % ABV, købt i Kvickly Allerød, 4. juli 2014. Ufiltreret sirupsfarvet bornholmsk Dobbeltbock med minimal offwhite-farvet skumtop på 1/2 cm, som svinder til kant og overflade. Aroma af malt, karamel og humle. Stærke Prebens smag er forførende. En humlet Bock, der har god stærk karakter. God sødme-/bitterheds balance med gode noter af brændt bygmalt. I munden er der en fin, lidt blødere, fornemmelse, som skyldes et lavere niveau af kuldioxid end medium. God mellemlang eftersmag. God Dobbeltbock og min bedste Svaneke øl-oplevelse.

Bland, watery and not very tasty beer. Not very impressive effort from Svaneke.

thomat (3370) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2014
On tap. Amber with a tiny off white head. Malty and fruity notes. Malt, fruit, spices and bitterness. Medium to full body with a nice, bitter sweet finish.
