Clear brown, small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and black fruit. Taste is black fruit (blackberry), roasted malts, wood, lychees, hop bitterness, caramel malts. Very complex taste, every sip seems to have a new flavour. Makes it a very nice beer to drink. Rune (12773) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2013
330ml bottle, as Dubbelbock, at VertsHuset Skarven in friendly company with Loz, her mother, Fin and Finn. Pours a lasting, white head over a cloudy amber coloured body. Nose is mostly malty, semi-sweet and semi-dry. Malty sweetness to the taste buds alongside moments of dried fruits. The alcohol is surprisingly present. Quite possible to drink, however rather disappointing in a De Molen context (Tromsø, 19.01.2013).
