maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, - OCT 10, 2012
Bottled 29/09/12. A ruby coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. Sweet and bready malts throughout. Fossil fuels. More bitter and fruity than most doppelbocks. Late toastiness. Pretty tasty but a bit over fruity.

ContemplateBeer (2020) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 8, 2016
12 oz. bottle from Keg Liquors; My first Icelandic beer! Aroma: Moderate tootsie roll, lighter sugar smacks, a touch of maple. Appearance: Dark cola brown with very soft carbonation holding up a foamy tan head that dissipates entirely. Flavor: More bready than the nose would suggest - has the dark, somewhat spicy properties you’d expect for the style; maybe a bit on the sweet side otherwise with maple/sweet cereals; some light fruitiness thereafter, but is quickly met by a light dose of noble hops that are more drying than bitter. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Has some interesting traits, but also some deficiencies that hold it back from ascending to the more noteworthy examples in the style.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours reddish amber with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is caramel, chocolate, and spice. The taste is caramel, earthiness, chocolate, and spice. It’s not overly sweet. There’s a decent amount of carbonation going on. This is pretty good.
