On tap @ Gaasa, May 2014. Murky brown body with a dense, lacing beige head. Quite light in aroma, some malt, caramel and fruit with a nutty hint. Flavor is sweet malt, light fruity, dry fruit, yeast, low bitterness and a little hint of alcohol. Medium body and aftertaste. Fair enough, nothing more.

stravale (2315) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from Drinkstore [260914]
Caramel brown, hazy, frothy off white head
Aroma of banana, caramel, soft clove, light bubble gum
Taste of caramel malts, soft banana, touch of roast, light bubble gum, soft roast, alcohol quite well hidden...just not that keen on the taste
Palate - Medium carb and body, quite rich, fairly sweet malts. Finish is slightly dry, caramel malts, some warming alcohol, dab of fruity malts, bit of an earthy malt linger
Overall - Not bad, but was a bit disappointed with this. For the style it’s probably a good example but I prefer a standard dopplebock. Fairly hard work to finish the bottle.
