This beer poured a very dark cloudy brown with plentiful head. It had a sweet fruity aroma with what I could have sworn was a hint of spiciness, but the spice did not carry through into the flavor or palate. Instead, it was extremely malty...right down to the lingering finish with hints of apples and bananas. Very refreshing and smooth, but maybe a little too malty.

500 ml bottle, BB date 25.08.2013, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 7.5%. Dark reddish brown colour, moderate off-white to beige head. Strong sweetish aroma of malts, caramel and dark bread with dark syrup. Medium sweet and malty flavour (but not quite as sweet as the aroma made me fear), caramel and brown bread. Very moderate hops, as expected. A slight fruitiness (hints of prunes) in the finish helps the drinkability. Nice enough now, but I might well buy another bottle and sample it fresher.

Butelka pod mosteczkiem. miedziano-brazowe piwo z nieimponujaca piana. aromaty glownie karmelowo-chlebowe, gdzies w tle jakies trawiaste i cos a la przypieczone ciasto. W smaku pasujaco do aromatu - dosc meczace piwo, bo brak jakiejs kontry dla tej karmelowatosci, chlebowosci. nic niestety nie urwalo, pierwsza polowa fajna, druga meczaca.

Idiosynkrasie (4824) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, dark chestnut colour with ruby red glimmer and average, thick, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Sweet-ish, dark malty aroma with a nuttily touch, hints of nougat and toffee, some liquorice. Taste is slightly sweet dark malty, nuttily, a touch of liquorice, bitter hoppy counterweight with a cautious fruity touch of orange. Not overly rich, but lusty and well balanced.

Holmen1 (3411) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2015
Flaske fra helsekosten på Kvaddå: vakker brunlig ravfarge med fint men kort skum. Nydelig aroma og enda bedre smak av rosiner, svisker, brunsukker, lys sjokolade og bjørnebær. Voltstyrken er elegant skjult i den myke kroppen, og ettersmaken har en lett og bæraktig bitterhet som gjør den særdeles konsumabel. Dette er raske leker (lekre saker). Må oppsøkes på nytt.

GoufCustom (1036) - HONG KONG - APR 20, 2015


500 ml bottle at abv 7.5% bought at Cheers in Yuen Long.

Looks: Clear amber brown colour. Two finger head and crumpety beige foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Good sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet full malt, with strong caramel, toffee, strong brown sugar, mustiness, molasses, light chocolate, plum, raisins, and faint grass.

Taste: Strong and savory sweet malt, with strong caramel, toffee, strong molasses, alcohol, chocolate, sweet rolls, yeast, light lemon and fairly light bitter grassy hops.

Body: Mid to light body. Very slick and boozy palate.

Mouth feel: Very rich maltyness in a surprisingly light but slick body you don’t feel heaviness at all. Sweetness is strong but very pleasant, brown sugar style matched toe to toe with strong caramel, toffee and coca like chocolates. Dark fruit taste somewhat fades. The 7.5% booze is all over the tongue but come across as light and tasty. Yum yum!!

Hoppiness: Faint grass nose, Pretty noticeable lemon and low grassy taste. Bitterness is more like liquorices for a lasting, moderate sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Sweet and easy to mouth.

Comments: This is a very nice doppelbock, with full sweet maltyness, rich caramel and dark fruity elements, strong booze in light touch and doesn’t hurt, plus good hoppiness. This one stands apart from other good bocksas it’s body is rather light without compromising the style and makes it less heavy and more accessible to casual drinkers. Highly enjoyable!
