8 degrees C. Pours slightly hazy brown/dark amber with small off-white head with sufficient retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and honey. As expected with that aroma, this is a quite sweet brew, but not unpleasantly so. Taste again dominated by roasted caramel malt but with a mild spiciness to counterpoint. Bitterness only appears in the aftertaste. Sweet, but no off tastes and not too heavy to be drinkable.

200ml draught at the brewpub. Deep ruby-red body. Filmy layer blanketing the glass. Attractive aromas of dark fruits and dark malts. Jam-like taste of black currant, dark malts, and dark fruits. A nice bittersweet finish. Fine bodied. Likable (Oslo 08.09.2015).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri, Oslo. Slightly hazy dark amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma dominated by caramel with some almost floral not of honey, berries and spices. Certainly sweet, but interesting flavours and it is a bit balanced even thou the sweetness is dominating. Quite pleasant stuff.

Deep nutty color with a tan head. Honey-ish, dried fruits and toffee aroma. Medium + body and a soft carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Fruity, toffee and honey-ish flavor. Nice and tasty doppelbock.
