Head is just small beige ring. Clear deep dark red body. Fruity wild berry aroma is deep and rich with earthy chocolatey notes. Dry-sweet cocos funk and fruit taste with wild berry and earth notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry-sweet soy sauce and wild berry aftertaste with funky chocolate notes. Very clean and harmonic, but less complex than the Nøgne Ø version.

Dark copper red, thin tanned head. Nice look. Smells of roasted barley, ripe fruits and hints of smoke. Taste is totally malty and very typical for a bock. Tons of sweetness, ripe fruits and cherries. Very nice oily feel and a dry touch at the end. Nice bitter finish

pub. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma caramel,malt,grains ,fruitiness and yellow apples. Flavor is sweet and malty with some green and yellow apples and some bitterness. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Maybe a little young, but still a nice doppelbock.
On tap at Patricks. An opaque brown beer with a small, brown head. Lightly roasted nose with a healthy dose of caramel and dried fruits. Surely sugary, pleasantly hopped and with some alcohol. Full-bodied and lightly warming, almost sticky. Sweet, caramel flavor with a touch of alcohol and dried fruits. Bitterness bringing some balance to it. Long finish bringing warmth down the throat. Finally a microbrewed Norwegian bock, hopefully it will not be a one-off. 110919
