COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional strong light beer Alcohol content: 7.0% Package: 0.5 l glass bottle The bock-type beer has been brewed for centuries in Europe. The light Double Bock is the first of its kind in Estonia. It has a pleasantly mellow taste for its alcohol content that makes Double Bock a powerful but cool beer. The recipe and taste distinctions of Double Bock have been developed taking into account the current taste preferences of Estonian consumers.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2008
Canned. Clear and kinda yellow in colour with a medium sized head. Malty and quite alcoholic with notes of metal, grass, hay and bread. Thin bodied.

FatPhil (9819) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2008
500ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Strawy yellow, no lasting head. Slightly sweet gluey aroma. Taste not dissimilar. Moderate sweet light malt, with a hint of corn, and a touch of marzipan. Hops kick in for quite a bitey finish, perhaps a little harsh in the context. Covers 8% pretty well, actually quite subtle, but heading towards boring. Better than the ’malt liquor’ moniker categorisation suggests.

bierkoning (10738) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle from TBone. Grainy aroma with grapes. Blonde, no head. Grainy alcoholic flavor, rather thin. Hints of rhum. Somewaht perfumed aftertaste. Below average pale bock.

KnutAlbert (6299) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2008
Bottle as Stiprais Walter. Rather soft and fruity, almost like a Bohemina pils. The strength shows in an edge and a warming finish. Very decent for a strong lager.

liinis (1612) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 24, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2011 Doesn’t feel like 8%, so deceptive. nice body, but quite boring. pretty label. Re-Rate with a WALTER named alias. something unpleasant in this beer this time. I find some honey and malts RE-rate again and I have some description: SODA WATER, Sweetener, metal, sterile. Bad, very bad, awful. Has been developed for the current taste preference of Estonian consumers? has to taste alcohol and got to get drunk fast.?

SaintMatty (5644) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2008
500ml Bottle- Golden/amber in colour with a malty, vegetable like aroma along with a mild alcohol scent. Fairly sweet and malty taste with not much of an aftertaste. Does not taste like it’s 8%.

evilempire (136) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2008
typical Estonian strong beer - thin, watery, texture with industrial alcohol flavour and very little else

estpiwo (1308) - ESTONIA - OCT 19, 2007
Can 0,33L. Yellow, malt aroma . Not good, so strong for me. This beer is better in glass bottles. Beer for estonian drunkards in countryside

begbie100 (181) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2007
light white foam, sweet malt aroma with a hint of syrup. Golden yellow lager-like appearance. Palate is mellow, not much gassy. Taste is surprisingly sour, but over all pretty well balanced for 8% beer. There’s no clear alcohol taste,like in finnish Olvi dobbelbock which is, IIRC, only dobbelbock I have tasted so far.
