4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Akkurat. Appearance: 4/5
It poured a hazy dark golden-orange liquid with a medium sized creamy white head. My brother said it shimmered but I just say it looked damn nice.
Even before sticking my nose in the glas I felt the hops. Lots of amarillo hops, fresh and fruity.
The first that struck me was the sweet and malty body, but then I got allot of Amarillo hops. It felt very fresh with lots of fruity hops. But this beer also had a palete of interesting flavours like bread, vanilla, fresh fudge, creamy caramel and some kind of candy that I couldn’t quite put in place.
Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a thick body and low carbonation. Just the way I like it.
This is one of those beers that I just love. It has a very nice balance between the hoppy bitterness and thick malty body. The Amarillo hops is breaking through but it isn’t overwhelming and works great with the other flavours of the beer. It was also very fresh and the fantastic mouthfeel made it dangerously easy to drink. If I would have had more time I would have had several glasses of this beer. The dangerous part is that this beer is 9,5% but the only thing I noticed from that was an alcoholic warmth at the finish.
It had a complex flavour and there was something in particular that I couldn’t quite place. The best way I can describe it is some kind of fresh fudge, creamy caramel, home made candy combination. There is definitely allot of left over sweetness from the malt in this beer. Something that makes me think of Närke Kaggen Stormaktsporter.
This is a fantastic beer, it’s definitely the best Double Bock I have ever had and I would rate it as one of the top 15 beers I have ever tried. I might have to try it again a couple of times to give it a more correct judgement. But my first impression is very positive.

Smak och doft av fishermans friend, söt, oljig konsistens med en kärv beska. Vet inte vad jag ska tro om denna.
