Pours deep ruby red/brown and crystal clear with a fast fizzling light tan head that fades to nothing at all. Aroma is soaked bready malts highlighted by notes of cherry and toffee. Taste largely follows with very mild booze and a clean and crisp malty finish. A touch of grass perhaps. Quite dry and thick mouthfeel. Pretty good depth of flavor. Even better as it warms. Definitely among the better dbocks you will find.

Bottle from Perfect Pour. Nice amber body with no head. Nose is malty, toasty and caramel. Taste is malts, caramel and dark chocolate. Molasses and oily notes. Smooth, oily texture too. Good stuff.

Damico (3137) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Pours chestnut amber mostly translucent with a small caramel head. Arks brings dark fruits like raisins. Flavors of toasts malts and dark fruits developed well with over a year of aging in the basement.

ilovedarkbeer (2698) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Pours a deep reddish color with almost no head at all. Looks under carbonated. Mouthfeel is medium weight and slightly sticky. Notes of roasted nuts, dried fruit, and tootsie roll.

maley1 (1042) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
Dark amber reddish pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, molasses, bread dough and slight hops. Taste of caramel malts, bread dough, yeast, molasses, vanilla and raisins. Medium bodied, silky mouthfeel, slightly nutty on the finish. Perfectly balanced, a great example of this beer style!

Draft. Clear, maple ruby color. Beige head. Full flavored. All the great maltiness. Perfect balance. No booze. Very well made. I could put down mugs all day and have a good ol time.

shrubber85 (10224) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle (in the "how did I miss this" category). Raisin, toffee malt, chalk, and dry grass aroma. Hazy brown with small light tan head. Sweet orange, raisin, toffee malt, and mildly bitter/astringent dry grass flavor - expected it to be much more astringent from the aroma. Nice body.

Ron (3465) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown. A slight aroma of molasses. Slight hop taste with other flavors of malty caramel, molasses, nutty and a little sweet. Pretty good for the style.

I love Bell’s, but this one is tough to call. Maybe it is too traditional for me? The taste is definitely unique.

Darwenus (826) - Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Pretty good, as doppelbocks go. Bright copper color with very little head and average carbonation. The aroma is cherries, citrus, and sweet malt. There’s also ginger tea and spices and candied fruit on the flavor.
