COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tettnang Doppelbock is a brunette hued doppelbock brewed, fermented, then lagered to six weeks old. At that point a hot water infusion of German Tettnang hops was pumped in to the lagering tank. We kegged it two weeks later.

Bottle from Riley’s. "The art of the dopplebock" belongs to Capital. This is an example of this charm. Dark brown with little head, I placed it in a De Koninck glass. Malty, yeasty, cocoa aroma. A tad above average mouthfeel yields a rich and complex malting. Very satisfying, very drinkable.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Steve’s Mineral Point in Madison. Pours a clear copper color with a thin fizzy off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma of toasted malts, raisin and floral hops. The taste is bitter herbal hops, raisin, grape, toffee, pale malts. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle: Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet caramely nose with some authentic noble hoppiness. Starts with a nice light malty sweetness with a touch of caramel malt and some light piny bittering balance before a crisp, semi-sweet finish. A true to style and enjoyable doppelbock.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear honeyed amber with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up a sweet blend of caramel, bready notes, and marshmallow, with essence of sweet rum.. earthy hops and dark fruit on top.. came across a little too sweet, but otherwise good. The flavor found more of the fruit and sweet caramel at the core, along with a bit of molasses.. peppery alcohol and earthy bitterness around.. prickly finish with a lot of sweetness and higher bitterness. Medium-bodied and a little sharp on the palate.. didn’t flow all that well.. seemed a bit green.

It was really fruity for a doppelbock, can’t say much else about it, it wasn’t the best example of the style.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Pours dark copper with a white head. Smells of earth, tea, biscuits, toasty. Tastes of light spice and earthy with a watery finish.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Sampled on draught at the 2010 Wisconsin Craft Beer Festival in Chilton, WI. Pours a clear dark reddish copper colored brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, some perfume hops and a hint of bread crust. Taste is full bodied, flavors of caramel malt, a hint of brown sugar, floral hops and alcohol. Finish has a mild bitterness that lingers a while and then a semi-dry aftertaste of caramel malt and alcohol.

Tap at Clark Street Ale House. Deep copper body yellowish khaki head. A rich toffee and black tea nose. There is also some dough. Slightly burnt breadcrust with some peanut shells dominate the taste. There is also some hint of toffee and alcohol. Decent.

notalush (4748) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Quite dry and potently hoppy for a Doppel - has the creamy body, smooth mouthfeel, light esters and moderate caramel character, but there is some odd oxidation, strong noble hop character and mild acidity that really throw it off the style - once you adjust, it isn’t that bad, but the elements never really come together - at over 3 bucks a 12 ounce, this is so not worth it.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Draft at Dexters. Filtered glowing orange-brown. Big, steady yellowed beige head. Sweet, mellow aroma. Somewhat odd taste, not really capturing the style. Some peppery hop tones and a sweet malty undertone. Maple, caramel, cinnamon. Drinkable, but not impressive.
