2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy nougat brown body with a large pillow of creamy off-white head. Aroma is nougat, raisins, rum, brown sugar and hints of white bubble gum and wine gum-like esters. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, raisins, brown sugar and hints of rum, white sugary esters and Norwegian brown cheese. Full, oily palate, medium carbonation. Way too sweet even for me, and the FG of around 1060 (I had to measure it!) combined with a scarcity of hops makes this just a tad bit sticky and cloying.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Yuck. Looks nice, smells nice, but tastes pretty crap. They say on the bottle, "never drink it alone!". Well they're right, chances are you'll need someone to get a bucket. It's competition for strong beer contests, but not good beer contests. Very heavy malt flavours and a graininess I can't handle.

Unclear ruby, little head. Sour aroma, redcurrants and sweat socks. Similar taste. Not good. It must be off. It certainly does not taste like a doppelbock.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Kveldens siste denne utmerkede rbhd/rogaland-samlingen i maritimt miljø: søtlig aroma med syre. Dette er en fin ganerenser og avslutter, men panelet er i tvil. Har noe gått galt? Upasteurisert øl stiler store krav til hele linjen. Slik denne fremstår er den ikke en dobbelbock er den ikke, til det er den alt for syrlig.
