Pours a transparent brown with a foamy white head. Has a faintly sweet aroma. Taste is sweet caramel and even a touch of fruit. The sweetness becomes a bit much at the end, but this is still a very tasty doppelbock.

Tap at Parlor City. The first thing that hit me was sweetness and then came the caramel. Nice doppelbock.

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a dark transparent amber with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Taste of malts and a hint of something caramel-ish.

On tap at Bellís total tap takeover at Tap and Mallet. Clear, heavy, reddish, not much head. Nose is reminiscent of plum wine. Very fruity. Palate fruity, sweet, sticky, a bit of malt notes. Some cherry. Not a lot of subtlety compared to the Germanís but still very good. Rich and full throughout.

P: Pours a clear amber body with lots of ruby accents. A thin cap if off white head that builds up around the sides. Sugar covered prunes, whiffs of metal, spiced fruit bread, straw, toasted malts and toffee. T/M: Spiced rum soaked dates, crystallized sugar, slight metal taste, toasted bread, spiced apple cider and dark cherries. Body is sticky but on the thinner side and almost sparkling at the front end. Finishes semi dry with grains and hints of tobacco juice in the aftertaste. O: Sharp and prickly with great dark fruit and earthy flavors playing off each other. This serves up a tad rough and lacks lush refinement. Serving type: bottle

Nice! Sweet lil dopplebock! Thin on the palate, good pour, very minimal head retention. Sweetness present in the tounge as well as the alcohol. Very smooth and easy drinking, almost too easy for 8%abv. Well done.

Bottle. Pours a clear, see-through brown with no head. Aroma is weak. Taste if sweet dark fruits, caramel. Not bad, weak category.

Pours a reddish brown with a very thin tan head that is gone in the blink of an eye. Aroma is sweet. Honestly itís a pretty mild aroma. Hard to pick up any subtleties in it. Flavor is much more bold. Molasses, brown sugar, coke, french toast. Very sweet beer. Little to no bitterness. Palate is pleasant. Smooth and well carbonated. Overall this beer would be well suited to drink as a dessert after dinner. Too sweet and flavorful to session. Not to mention that is does pack a little bit of a punch at 8%

Red brown color, very syrupy look. No head, or almost none. Aroma is very sugary, with a molasses and cherry quality. Touch of cola. No hop to speak of. Just tiny hints of mint and bubblegum. Much complexity. The flavor is pure sugar: cherry cordial, toffee, molasses, caramel. There is a ginger-y burn on the back end, although it doesnít taste like ginger. Mild butterscotch; liqueur sweetness. A mild earthy balance keeps it from being too saccharine. Very smooth, buttery texture. If youíre in a malty mood, this one is a real winner. Iím not nutty about Bocks but this one is official.
