Ordentlicher Doppelbock im dunklen Bereich mit einiges an Malz und Alkohol. Ein paar Karamellen, etwas an Nuessen und etwas Sueffigkeit. Nicht schlecht, aber am Ende doch nur einer von vielen.

Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark brown colour with low steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and flowers. Taste of malt, barley, dark grains, strong alcohol, dried fruits, plums, roses and woods. Hints of chocolate. Decent Doppelbock. yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. It pours a clear, brown body under a small, off-white head. The aroma is malty tending towards meat. Caramel and a touch of dried fruits and fruity hops. Some bitterness in the flavor, with the maltyness dominating. Full-bodied, dryish yet sweet and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting caramel finish with dried fruits. A pretty nice one. 131019gunnfryd (15287) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013

Bottle, at Norøls Bockølfestival. It’s a dark brown beer with a reddish hue. A small off-white head sits on top. Roasted, slightly burnt bready nose with caramel and a hint of dms. Sweet caramel flavor with roasted malts and some dms. Full-bodied, almost sticky feeling. Strange, it felt dry the last time. Some bitterness in the finish. A nice beer suffering from dms even though the levels are low, and it could use more bittering hops. 100313

Bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Dark amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is roasted, malt, hop, caramel. Flavour is sweet, roasted, malt, hop, bread, caramel. Medium to full body. Nice beer.
Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. Clear deep amber body with an off-white head. Aroma is mainly malty and gives a sweet impression. Flavor confirms the sweetness. Rather sweet on the malt side with dry fruit and not so much more, but that’s OK in this case. It’s simply a lovely sweet malty bock with a fine body, strong, sweet aftertaste and a hint of warming alcohol without being boozy. kappldav123 (6133) - GERMANY - DEC 7, 2013

500ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet malty and bread, Flavor is sweet malty, light bitter, some caramel and some kind of an unripe fruity freshness. Very pleasant and the alcohol is well hidden.
Bottle looks really good. Gusher! Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts intense malty, fine roasty, not too much. Some fine malty-earthy notes. Modest alcoholic. Warming-malty finish. Not bad!

LCRBM 2009. The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts fruity and strong, malty with notes of liquorice, finish a bit moldy. Dry-malty aftertaste. Not bad!
