Bouteille, encore un produit du même acabit de ce brasseur, malté, peu de houblon, forte, pas mon style.

HenrikSoegaard (10103) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Vintage 2005. Frothy white fair mostly deminishing head. Dark yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate sweet and light bitter flavor. Average finish. Oily palate. Very oxidised.

NosirIwont (1894) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2009
Bottle. Vintage 1995 (best before) - 7.0%. Pours a brownish golden colour with a diminishing head. Aroma is oxydised. Sweet Madeira and notes of honey. Flavour is sweet with honey notes. Oxydised. Madeira again. Grassy notes as well. Finish is the same, but also has notes of alcohol. Overall an interesting try, but would like to try a fresh one. 26-09-09.

Enjoyit (3086) - Vadum, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2009
BBE 1995. Amber of color with a small white head. An aroma of port, sweets and honey. A flavor of honey and sweets.

DandyWolfFloyd (623) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Very cool, black bottle. Contents are just right. This is a great lager, double bock. It’s appearance is a moderate golden color, providing a good fluffy head. Flavor was very nice, almost like honey or syrup was present. Taste complex. There was no ascorbic bite, so that’s nice.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
Medium golden color. No head at all. Sweet and malty aroma. Some caramel and honey. A dash of yeast. Medium mouthfeel. Overall a little on the thin side.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Bright golden body with visible, hazy yeast, moderate carbonation, and a flat-fading soapy white head. Aroma of sweet honey, sweet pale wort, maple and apple notes, plus a touch of alcohol and a nutty, buttery element. Medium sweetness, less so than anticipated, with low bitterness and some gentle alcoholic warmth. Texture is like warm, watery syrup. Not my thing.

Nejhleader (1183) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2006
sweet and almost tart was pretty nice overall i wouldn’t mind trying again sometime. Had a complex sweet/fruity taste good body.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Aroma is sickly sweet honeyish malt. Color is gold/yellow with a rapidily diminishing head. Flat and honey sweet. I don’t know if this is gone bad or if it’s as intended. It doesn’t taste infected, but it doesn’t taste like much else either except for the honey tinged maltiness.

3.1
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy yellow body with a spare white head. Aroma of grain, mild cigar, herbs, and lemon. Flavor of grain, fruit, and dustiness. Soft carbonation with a chalky finish. Not what I would characterize as a dopplebock.
