COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Doppel" means double and this beer is double in every way. Bayern Doppelbock became an instant legend when Bayern introduced it in Missoula in December of 1987. Unlike its top-fermenting counterparts, this hearty German dark lager does not have the rough bite of a porter or a stout. Bayern Doppelbock is dark, smooth and has plenty of hops (Saaz & Hallertauer Perle) and malt. It has a starting gravity of 18 degrees Plato. Bayern Doppelbock is available in bottles and on draft from November through February, just in time for the holidays and the coldest months. Please enjoy this festive beer in moderation and leave your car at home if you are planning to celebrate with Doppelbock. Draft Magazine rated Bayern Doppelbock 98 (out of 100): the highest rating for any beer in that category!

12 ounce bottle thanks to Toby. A cool label. Pours a dark brown color with a medium grey/beige head. The aroma is rich chocolate and toasted malts. A nice smooth bock, some tobacco and chocolate, light roast, some metallic hops perhaps. Enjoyable.

troopie (2290) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark red brown with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel and a bit of grass. Sweetish flavour with a bit of bitterness to keep it from being cloying. A bit of spice in the flavour, but not much. A little citrus in the finish, but again not a lot. Doesn’t taste as strong as it is.

boFNjackson (4198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Bottle... Poured dark, amberish/brown with a tan head, that dissipated quickly into a bubbling ring around the surface of the beer. Aroma of caramelized sugars, toasted malts, and dark fruits. Tasted very similar to the aroma with the addition of dark, sweet, plum and alcohol notes that complemented nicely.

jake65 (3244) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 4, 2009
At Bayern: Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Whispy lacing. Sweet aroma, rather inticing. Taste is deep with molasses and sweetness. Some caramel. Lightly bitter, but finishes with a deep maltiness and very little roast. Good. **Unfiltered verision was similar, tasted side-by-side, but was a little sweeter and showed more of a toffee and molasses thing in the tail. Final rating is an average of the two.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2009
2/11/09 On draft at the Dog & Pony, Renton, Wa. Aroma is highly malty with faint sourness & alcohol. Appearance is dark brown with a well maintained off white head. Flavor is sour, yet more malty and not tangy. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture. This beer is unique in that tastes more authentic and traditional as it warms up.

leeburg (230) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 4, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2009 Bottle, right after a Spaten. A little sweeter and bubble-gummy on the nose, but with a bit of chocolate and wet, malty metal, each of which predict the flavor. A decent bock which I think is a little underrated here. Had no idea it was 8.4% abv.
