This malty, sweet, dark amber colored German-style bock beer is brewed with imported malt and hops. Its uncommon smoothness and impeccable taste make it the perfect companion for a cold night.

So lagers. Theyíre a thing that people like. Personally Iíve never seen the allure, but I do respect a good lager/bock. This is a fairly good one. It drinks like a Boston lager. If you can imagine Boston lager with a little less hop and a who heap load of more malt flavor. This is like if you lagered a stout. Itís really good, definitely a winter beer. Too bad I missed having this in winter....

This beer tastes very damn good and is 7.5 alc. It doesnít have a very strong aroma, but I guess that doesnít really matter much since I donít buy beer for the smell. It has a cool label with the skyline of Detroit as seen from Windsor and Atwater is down there. No twist off cap it requires a real bottle opener which means it is serious.

On tap at Danís. The pour is amber-ish, at best, with a lot of lighter golden types of visuals. There isnít much head to be found, and the lace is just as existent. I wouldnít know this was a dopplebock by looking at it. The aroma has a lot of caramel maltiness to it, but it remains light and pleasant. The flavor is really similar. Somewhat basic, but not overly bad. The mouth feel is light, carbonated, and the aftertaste is pretty unique. Itís not overly bitter, but itís nothing like the caramely sweetness of the nose.

From bottle, courtesy of Ed. Light caramel and cherry wood, biscuit. Sweetish with light alcohol notes and few hops. Coppery amber clear with quickly dissipating head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and light warming. Starts and stays moderately sweet, with caramel and biscuit. Astringent cherry wood notes and light grain dust. Nutty bitter finish with lingering sweetness. A bit of raisin in the after.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent amberish brown with thin light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and doughy with notes of mild caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Eh.

On tap at Slows in Detroit. Decent bock, dark with a thick head. A tad astringent in the finish.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-17-13. I purchased this the previous winter, so it has at 6 to 10 months of aging on it. Scents of chocolate, carob, caramel, orange, and urine. A bit meaty and mineral-y in the aroma. Somewhat low-end beer smell. Pours reddish copper. Effervescent with some suspended particulate. Dull color except in the light. Mall to moderate amount of golden taupe / tan head. Some suspended particulate. Malty and dry taste. Muffin with a touch of plum in the flavor. Lively in the palate. Medium body. Perhaps this beer is not as bad as the score implies, but I didnít know where to upgrade it.
