330 ml bottle thanks to Douberd! Hazy dark amber copper color with light beige head. Malty aroma, fruity, dark dried fruits, tart vinous notes, wood, smoked notes, caramel, bread. Sweet and bitter like aroma without the tart notes and with more intense smoked notes. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a hazy deep mahogany. Head is lightly tanned, foamy and lasts well. Aroma is rich with notes of burnt toffee, figs, roasted malts, caramelized dates, rum and raisin chocolate and a touch of smoke. Flavour is very smooth with a very light toasted bitterness; dates, prunes, dark cherries, burnt toffee, Belgian candi sugar, dark chocolate and a toasted finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, thick texture and a long warming finish.

At home. Bottle shared. Sweet toasted caramel malts, figgs, marmalade, gunpowder tea, black seaweed. Over medium sweet, over medium bitter. Full body, light grainy texture. Too much like sweetened bitter tea.

Maakun (5747) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Very dark reddish brown with off white head. Figs, raisins, caramel, quite some herbs and alcohol. Basically lots of herbal candies and Jagermeister. Medium sweet and a bit over medium bitter. Over medium bodied with nice fitting carbonation. Bit too bitter and alcoholic for me.

4.4
Batavi (392) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
Emelisse Imperial Doppelbock 2015, gekocht bij Vinotake in Waalwijk. Uitgeschonken in een snifter van De Molen. Fraai koperkleurig helder bier, met een kleine beige schuimkraag, die wegzakt tot een dunne laag, die aan de binnenzijde van het glas blijft kleven. Bij dit bier is het aan te raden het om het rustig in te schenken, er kan veel gistdepot onder in de fles zitten, waardoor het bier gelijk troebel kan worden. De aroma’s zijn complex en rijk met tonen van: geroosterde mout, karamel, toffee, donker fruit als rozijnen en pruimen, chocolade, kruidnagel en lichte houtrook. Het smaakpallet is krachtig, complex en zeker niet te zoet, eerder zacht bitter. Veel tonen van karamel en toffee, donker brood, bittere chocolade, koffie, maar ook fruitigheid en zoetheid van rijpe banaan kersen en pruimen, met daarna kruidigheid van laurier en witte peper. De afdronk is zeer lang en hopbitter, carbonatie is zacht met een peperige finish. Weer een uitzonderlijk krachtig en smaakvol bier deze Imperial Doppelbock van Emelisse. Moutig en complex, met goed verborgen alcohol van 11% nu. Voor mij het beste bockbier tot nu toe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
