the malt and ester profiles are lacking the complex character of a good doppelbock.

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Green 500 mL cola bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham, NC. Doppel Bock label. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma is grainy malts, cola and faint raisin. Taste is molasses, grainy malts and faint leafy hops. A faint bit of raisin and anise. Sticky texture and medium bodied.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 29, 2009
This bottled brew from a restaurant poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent typically carbonated brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish and a lingering bock aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of dark malt and was mildly vinous. Not one that I would likely buy again. There was something off about this beer. I’ve had far better. Just off the mark for my tastes. I can be rough on bocks hehe one of my favorite styles.

crazyvin (1860) - New York, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Seemed a little thin for this style. A reddish-brown body with a thin off white head that had some retention. Aroma had a one denominational malt note that was overall sweet. Flavor seemed to have a distinct molasses note with some off setting chocolate notes. Kind of light. bottle was dated 2/4/2008.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2009
As Bischoff Dopplebock. Clear brown with reddish tint and a thin tan head. Aroma of heavy skunk, toffee, tobacco and brown sugar. Taste is sweet and artificial with tobacco, mild chocolate, stale corn and alcohol. Finishes up dry with some alcohol warming.

Athens,Ga., Five Points Bottle Shop - 500 ml screw off bottle. Pours a dark chocolate colored brown with a khaki colored head that sticks around a while and leaves nice lacing. Aroma of molasses and chocolate. Rib sticking flavor with plenty of juicy molasses, brown sugar and bittersweet chocolate. thick, rich mouthfeel. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2009
bottled as doppel bock bb24/4/2008. this is my first beer experience outside of ML with a stelvin cap! it pours clear a dark auburn brown with a soft tan tinted off white head. it smells really skunky, sweet and metallic malty... that’s it?! the flavor is very two dimensional... crummy hop extract and malt powder... i can reach for chocolate, corn and molasses but it’s a stretch. it s far too sweet with nothing developing to make up for the short comings of this sticky mess. i need a shower... 3/3/3/2/8/1.9

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2009
Bottled (as Bischoff Doppel Bock), from Timo A, thanks! Deep amber colour, small beige head. Saltwater, caramel and some slight alcohol in aroma. Flavour is quite much the same. Very bittery and quite harshly dull.

TBone (11935) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 10, 2009
Bottled "Doppel Bock" (BB 09/2009). Dark brown color, small steady beige head. Strong grassy and cardboardish aroma. Grassy, hop extract -like flavor, some caramel and toasted malts. Fizzy carbonation. Real bulk doppelbock ... like "malt liquer dunkel".

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Labeled as Bischoff Doppel Bock, in a screw top bottle. Light khaki colored head with a medium brown body. The aroma is like a dunkel with some cherry flavored bubblegum and a little bit of tobacco. The taste had some nasty green wood and abc gum. There was also a little bit of cheap tobacco. Sweet and doughy.
