Our Winter lager this year is a German style Doppelbock. Brewed using traditional double- decoction brewing technique as well as all German malts and hops. Our Doppelbock has been cellaring for the last 4 months to balance and condition.

XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2013
On tap at the brewery, aroma is some soapy malt. Taste is a lot of malt and a hint of spice/pepper in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (9482) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Very solid Doppelbock - slightly hazy amber pour with a sticky head. Sweet caramel dominates, with some dark fruit and yeast. Yummy brew.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Appearance: burnt amber and burnished mahogany. Little head though decent khaki collar. Swirls with no real improvement in head, lace, or collar.
Nose: mild for a doppelbock. Gentle sweetness with melba toast underneath and more melba in the back. Not much of anything else. No caramelized sweetness.
Palate: mildly sweet with red apples and a watery mouthfeel. Bitter apple skin finish top of tongue and back of throat. Like her nose, not much of anything else.
Final Thoughts: the least impressive of the Barley John beers I tasted during my vacation with the sis. Barely there for a bock, she most certainly wasn’t anywhere close to a doppelbock.

badgerben (4849) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2010
Dark brown color with a thin head. Slightly sweet caramel aroma. Dry grains is the dominant flavor. It takes a few sips for the toffee to come out, otherwise if I was blindfolded, I would have thought this a strong pale lager. Light vegetal quality.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2010
A nice dark brown color with off white head. A light, sweet aroma. A really sweet body with a lager yeast afterbite.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Pours a dark brown with a thin, off-white head. Mild aroma is quite malty with some fruity, nutty notes. Flavor is also very malty with hints of caramel, raisins, plums, and nuts with a slightly smokey finish. Alcohol comes through toward the end. Medium bodied with little carbonation. Overall this is a decent brew.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Tap at Barley John’s. Dark brown pour, not a lot of head. Not much aroma either, slightly malty. Flavor is mostly malty, little bit of caramel. Finish is a bit smokey.
