330ml bottle. Huge brownish head. Cloudy dark brown colour. Disgusting aroma. For some reason, there’s a sour taste. Strange palate. Bad.

cervmagpt (837) - PORTUGAL - DEC 20, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 9A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 06.09.16 (BBF 06/NOV/2017). AROMA: medium malt aroma with toasty notes, some toffee and faint roasted bread crust. low cooked vegetal note (cereal husks). APPEARANCE: dark ambar color and clear. medium ivory head with medium retention. TASTE: medium-low toasty malt presence without much complexity. Maillard compounds absent. medium-low bitterness with a semi-sweet finish. PALATE: medium body with medium-low carbonation. slight alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a Doppelbock that resembles a Strong Bitter flavor-wise. Needs more malt complexity.

Gangstergafje (1142) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2016
Beery Christmas #19 from Saveur Bière. The beer looks great, just like a doppelbock should. The color of the beer is a beautiful clear ruby red. The beer is very clear. Beautiful. On top of the beer a nice thick layer of greyish foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, to leave a minimal drape. Than the smell. It is a nice smell. It is everything you can aspect from a bock like this. The smell is rather warming. I smell bittersweet caramel and slightly chocolaty malts. There is a nice refreshing hop tone, giving some bitters and sours to the smell. Besides this I smell some liquorice. I also smell some gentle sweet syrup aroma’s It are all nice heavy winter/autumn smells. I like it. There is a nice harmony in the smell. The taste is also very nice. There are nice bittersweet malt flavours and a bitter hop touch. The chocolate and caramel are clearly tastable, so is the liquorice (in the distance though) and the syrup. There is a nice balance. The beer is sweet, but not to sweet. It’s perfect for cold weather, to drink besides the fire. The palate is nice. The body is rather medium. It’s not as heavy as some beers can be. The carbonation is rather soft. The finish is of average length and fades away nicely. There is a nice alcoholy flavour in the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2017 Superbe robe brune aux reflets rouge surmontée par sa belle mousse Blanc cassée. Le nez est épicé, chocolatée et présente des arômes de pommes caramélisées. La bouche est assez malté, on retrouve le côté épicé et chocolaté du nez, le tout est très léger et facile à boire!
