Tmoney99 (11061) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good caramel toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Good balanced sweet toasted malt flavor with a moderate smooth balanced finish of moderate duration. Soft doppelbock.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle: Pours a dark color with a nice tan head and some spotty lacing. The nose is sweet with molasses and plums, raisins and dates. The flavor is lightly roasty but somewhat thin with more of the funky dried sweet fruits. A touch tart in the tail and a malty body. Not as bad as the score would indicate but it certainly needs something a little more front forward.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle as Doppel Bock. Pours amber copper with a large foamy tan head. Rich dark roast malt aroma. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is somewhat sweet dark caramel with a little grassy hop, I think. Finishes very mellow.

Finhead (1213) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2010
A clear reddish-brown pour with off-white head. The aroma is a little skunky with some malty notes and gives off an alcohol smell. The taste is lightly bitter with a full body and oily texture. I can see why this 1 pint bottle only cost me $0.99

wxman (1471) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Pours clear brownish-red cola color with a large bead light tan head that doesn’t last. Kind of disappears the way an American macro beer head does. Aroma is sweet roasted malt and a little smoke. Taste is molasses, coffee, caramel, smokiness and some bitterness from the roasted malts. Not particularly well balanced or exceptionally tasty, but not a pour either. Good enough for the sale price..

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

Drake (8981) - 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 (4971) - 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 (1990) - 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.

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.
