corkyrory66 (2059) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2017
Doppelbock de 7,2 % abv, pour 18,5° plato, qui a été médaillé lors des world cup 2012. Mon exemplaire était à 11 jours avant sa date. Couleur acajou très foncé, et roux en transparence. Bulles fines, partout, vives. Mousse beige, soyeuse, stable à 1 mm. Arômes de malt cara, toffee, chicorée, prune, pointe de spéculoos. 1ère bouche très souple, à la belle entame café/malt/chicorée. Arrière-bouche avec du pain d’épices. 2ème très grande bouche sur des fruits mûrs, avec une pointe d’épice. Arrière-bouche d’une grande élégance. 3ème sur une fusion quasi totale malt/fruit/levure. Arrière-bouche vraiment soft. Longueur douce, précise, vraiment harmonieuse. Jambes lisses, longues. Levure fine, douce, un peu vineuse, belle ligne. Alcool très bien, il organise et dirige les saveurs. Finale superbe. CONCLUSION : l’image et le nom de cette bière en combat de cerfs est vraiment un paradoxe, parce que cette bière est toute en douceur .. le contraire d’un combat de cerfs où la violence peut être extrême !! Mais il est vrai que ceux de l’étiquette n’ont pas l’air trop farouches, malgré le fait qu’un 16 cors contre un 14, ça devrait le faire !! Bref, on ne retient que la bière, qui est splendide.

Bottled, few years ago. From a local supermarket during their "Beers of Europe" days.
Pours litlle hazy copper with nie off white head. Moderate head retention, little lacing. Malty, caramel, licorice nose.Medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture. Taste is malt forward, with roasty and licorice notes. Average.

Brown with little beige head. Aroma is caramel toffee caramellized nuts maybe pistacchio. Taste is sweet malty nuts and bitter juice. Full bodied and low carbonation. Medium smooth. A bit bity bitterness. Could be more balanced. Not so bad.

Got this one from LCBO Spring 2017 collection. Not bad, not as good as the previous one. A good company while watching the Zookeeper’s Wife.

After a few days in Germany I must say this is the best beer I’ve had here until now.

Mahogany colored, clear, with a one finger high, light mocha colored head.

A lot of caramel malt, fudge, raisin, plum, brown sugar, dark rum, bread, a hint of banana and dark syrup.
Smooth carbonation and full body.
Great beer!

nybol (2247) - DENMARK - JUL 4, 2017
En rigtig god bock. Stør sødme og en del maltsmag er der også i den. Lettere karamelsmag fra malten anes.
