This is a dopplebock high-gravity lager. This one is big, black and sweet. It’s malty character is derived from two caramel malts along with Munich malt to create the smoothest high-gravity beer this side of the pond.

Had this in a flight on tap. No head and it looks very dark. Amazing aroma. Its very malty and caramely. Great brown sugar, caramel, cream taste. Its a little sour too but overall its really good.

a smooth double bock that has almost no bite at the end. it enters sweet and finishes with a nice smooth flavor. for as strong as it is, you would think that you aren’t even drinking beer. nice black color and a rich aroma that leads you to believe you are going to drink something like licorice. when you finally take a sip of this beer, the initial taste will blow you away. when you’ve finished the bottle, its a nice little surprise.

Poured from bottle into British pub glass. Malty aroma, malty, and lots of caramel. Not black, but clear dark brown. Head was a nice two finger tan head. Nice lacing. A nice rather heavy medium sweetness. Thin body, easy drinking. Hardly any alcohol aftertaste. A very refreshing lager. Will drink many more. Overall an enjoyable Dopplebock at 9%.

Really delicious. I don’t know anything about what to expect from a Doppelbeck.

Bottle. Rich caramel malt aroma with notes of toffee and some nuttiness. Pours caramel brown with a thin tan head and decent lacing. Starts with huge caramel malt sweetness with hints of nuts and toffee. Finishes smooth with the caramel sweetness carrying throughout with a slight bock bite at the end before it gets washed away with the sticky caramel that clings to the palate. Nice doppelbock.

Had this one bottled in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, thanks Slothgar! Cloudy, dark brown pour with a nice, tan head. Malty, a bit of sweet cheery and milk chocolate nose, strong but sweet, unusually fruity. Strong finish. Excellent!

Poured with a decent head and had a good aroma of chocolate and coffee tones flavor it a tad sweet for the still but excellent mouthfeel and real smooth finish recommended

12oz bottle. Dark brown pour with a big tan head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel, brandy, nuts and chocolate. Caramel flavor with some nuts before a dry, semi-bitter and slightly boozy finish with hints of coffee and chocolate. Had this on tap about a year ago and wasn’t all that impressed, but this bottle was very good. Certainly exceeded my expectations for Atwater.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 This is easily the best beer that I have had from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with ruby highlights and a medium sized dark brown head. The aroma is tangy and malty with an undertone of molasses. The flavor is faintly bitter and rather malt with a rich chocolate and molasses element and a floral hop presence. The finish is tangy and hoppy. The alcohol is well hidden. Nice.

Dark brown color with a big brown head. Aroma of spices and caramel malt. Flavor of sugar, caramel malt and pepper.
