Karol (719) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle bought at the brewery retail shop. Pours a dark brown color, beige soapy head. Aroma of malt, caramel, sweetness, toffee, biscuits. Taste mirrors the aroma with a medium bitter hops finish. A very good doppelbock.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
A dark clear brown Bock with a thin creamy mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with dark fruits, resinous character, treacle and light peated notes. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with loads of dark fruits, molasses, licorice notes, chalky character, warming alcohol, very nice and solid. Bottle from brewery, 2010 vintage.

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Deep brown body with a quickly dissipated tan head. Alcohol is very present compared to the ABV. Molasses, chocolate, raisins. Bready. A little oily on the texture. Not really my style, but not bad. Not really getting any funk on it as the person who reccomended it to me said they got a lot of it.

HopsandBolts (203) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
500 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a finger of tan head. Retention is good and lacing is moderate.

Aroma: Malt, campfire, smoke, molasses, chocolate fudge, hint of barnyard.

Flavours: Malt, straw, grain, bit of hops, some barnyard notes (yes Im borrowing this term from wine tasting as I cant think of a better way to describe it).

Mouthfeel: Creamy and rich.

Overall: This is a good Doppelbock with tons of malt. I found the flavour tended towards the rough hewn side with some barnyard notes which I dont mind. Overall this is exactly what I would expect from a Bock and I hope Amsterdam keeps making it.

GlennHendry (130) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
Gorgeous mahogany pour with a creamy head. Smells like sweet caramel and tastes rich, with yeast, grassy notes and dark fruits dominating, before the chewy caramel malts return on the finish. Pleasant bitterness. Excellent beer and a superb dobblebock.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours clear copper with a small beige head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has big caramel notes, along with grassy hops and a touch of fruit. The flavour is medium sweet with lots of toffee and an herbal, grassy hop accent. The finish is medium in length and balanced between grassy hops and toffee malts. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth milky-syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent bock. 2014-08-23

Bottle, shared with Smitty. Clear copper body, medium white head. Caramel with notes of orchard fruits, lightly estery. Moderately bitter finish.

taylorderek (37) - - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a hazy wooden-copper colour with a small, creamy head. Beer is slightly thinner than the head, sporting a soft carbonation and a quick finish. beer smells earthy - yeasty/grassy aromas. Hops are definitely more present than malt in both aroma and flavour; A mostly bitter taste os paired with a light sweet and sour flavour - likely the malt?s contribution

ljthiessen (750) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle. Orange-amber pour with virtually no head. Aromas of dark fruits and leather, with a bit if bubblegum. Fruity flavour with some leather notes and a bit of hop bitterness. Pretty nice doppelbock.
