Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2011
Beautiful dark brown color, cream-like head. The smell is rather reserved. Malty sweet and subtly roasty. It starts strong malty, with a nice sweet flavor. The aftertaste is roasty and almost a little chocolatey. Reminds partly to a good Stout. Fabulous Bockbier!

Finn (7039) - Troms, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2010
Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune 26 Mai 10. Dyp amber p farge. Skummet er svakt farget. Hyt og luftig men daler etter ei lita stund. Aromaen er maltig med litt rykpreg. Smaken blir i steste laget. Karamell. Uvariert og litt kjedelig.

Embrouille (2844) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle 50cl. Ordered from www.bierzwerg.de. Very true to the style. Malt accented, low bitterness with pumpernickel and caramel apparent throughout. I prefer the taste over the aroma. Not really my kind of Doppelbock.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2010
500ml swingtop bottle bought at Bier Spezialitt Laden, Berlin. Decent beige head atop of a deep mahogany body. Smell of sweet earthy malts. Roasted, mid-sweet malts, including grainy chocolate, to the taste buds. Finish with a dry, malt-fruity touch. So and so (shared with Finn, Troms 26.05.2010).
