Brand Dubbelbock dankt zijn rijke en robuuste smaak aan de dubbele rijping. De bijzondere blend van gebrande moutsoorten geeft Dubbelbock een prachtige, robijnrode kleur. Brand Dubbelbock is door zijn krachtige, moutige karakter een echt herfstbier. De smaak van Brand Dubbelbock komt het beste tot zijn recht in een tulpglas.

Very nice bock beer. Toasted malts, mild caramel and sweetness and a medium bitterness, very well balanced and tasty. Not as sweet as most bock’s, which i’m no fan of.

The beer has a nice look, but it is s little simple compared to most bock beers. The beer pours a little amount of soft white foam. The foam collapses quickly, to leave only a thin drape. The beer has a nice ruby red color. It is quite light compared to on their beers in its class. The beer is crystal clear. The beer has a nice smell. I smell some beautiful sweet ’n sour red forrest fruits. This is balanced out by a nice sweet aroma of syrup and some caramel. There is also a clear aroma of licorice. The alcohol aroma fixes a nice warming touch to the smell. I also can’t smell some roasty aromas. The smell is nice. So is the taste. The beer has more bitterness in the taste, giving it a little more kick than the smell. The taste has a strong and delicious almond flavor. The taste has a nice sweet caramel and syrup taste, combined with some licorice times. It is quite like the smell, but than with more almonds to it. The palate is quite nice. The beer is quite tingly. A nice bock beer, but not a top one.

Bruinrood van kleur, Schuimkraag is vrij snel weg. Geur is karamel/zoet. Smaak toffee/karamel met de bitter er achteraan. Mondgevoel is wat waterig. Niet zo zoet als veel bokken. Onder de grote Nederlandse merken de betere Bock.

A decent doppelbock, but, as with the other Brand beers, nothing too special. Just enjoyable.
