Not unpleasant, but I couldn’t drink a lot of it. I thought it had a chocolatey taste. It pours very dark, almost black. Moderately fizzy.

This beer has that typical double bock aroma. It is smooth with a almost sweet taste. Another plus it has one of the coolest bottles I've ever seen.

Got a Ballistic Brewing sampler ... first one I tried was the double bock. Dissapointing, after a dark pour with average tan head, smell was weak. Flavor was almost nonexistent, watered down even. Not a quality beer.

Bottle from Fresh and Easy: Poured a dark brown that was nearly opaque while a delicate pillow of foam head slowly dissipated. The drink is primarily caramel like toasted malts that have a semi sweetness about them that makes this different than most other bocks I have tasted. However, the aftertaste seems watered down and doesn’t have any real substance of flavor linger around like a rich beer would, so in the end this end sup coming short.

This is okay. Some sweetness and malt but surprisingly thin. Not much body or definition. Okay at best.

Poured from a bottle it smelled and looked quite good but taste was lacking a depth and complexity of flavor I was expecting from a double bock. Just not that interesting.

Bottle. Dark mahogony beer with a tan head. Caramel and light fruity aroma. Earthy and caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel andearth lingers with light citrus. First beer in a long time I poured down the drain.

Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a smoked malt aroma. There is a carbonated treacle flavor with a flat dry finish.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured into my Lagunitas mason jar glass. Color is dark brown with a head that disappears almost instantly. Aroma is lightly roasted malt with a touch of spice in the background. Flavor is almost non-existent... there is a touch of roasted malt in the background, but it’s mostly water. If you brewed a tea with the leftover mash of some other beer, this might be what you’d get. Palate and mouthfeel are water. I cannot believe this is 7.2% ABV. Overall, possibly one of the most underwhelming beers I’ve ever drank...
