COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
EINHORN "Unikator" DOPPELBOCK has been described by one BCJP like this (we couldn’t have described it better): Moderate dark malty nose with background vegetal and sweet floral alcohol notes. As the beer warms a nice bready maltiness comes through. Clear dark garnet beer with prodigious frothy tan head that persists well. Moderately intense Munich malty flavor smoothly transitions to a toasty bread crust finish. Balance is slightly toward malt sweetness but bitterness balances well. Mouthfeel is full and creamy but doesn’t linger on the palate. Overall an excellent balance between full malt flavor and the dryness required to make an extremely drinkable dopplebock.

On draft in a sampler at Creekside brewery. Better than Creekside’s beers. Light carbonation and full bodied. Clean finish with some bread flavor.

Clear copper orange color with fleeting ivory head. Raison, dark fruits, baked caramel, yeasty dark bread aromas. Medium body with average co2. Raison, baked caramel, dark bread lagered, yeasty flavors--on the light side for a dbl bock--not bad.

Bottle from Saarlander. Pours a somewhat hazy dark caramel color. Aroma is florals, caramel, syrup, and bready. Taste is sweet with notes of pit fruitsand bread. A fairly dry finish. Not bad.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Bomber from Saarlander over the holidays - thanks, Secret Santa! Found this to be a decent, unassuming example of the style that went down fairly well on a chilly eve. Some dry hops detectable in the nose, and light bittering notes complemented things decently. But overall, while it was solid it was also just a bit too chewy.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
22oz bottle. This one was a gusher upon opening. Not sure whether that was due to contamination or calcium oxilate or fusarium or something else, but it’s never a good sign to have your beer start foaming onto the table when opened. Once in the glass, Unikator it a mostly clear mahogany brown color with a small beige head that has poor retention. Good color for a dark doppelbock, and looks filtered. Head could use some work. The aroma is intensely malty with sweet bread, bread crust, dark toasted grain, molasses, and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is full and malty with a malt sweetness that just never crosses over the line into cloying territory. Hops are almost undetectable. The finish has just a touch of ashy harshness to it that keeps this from being solid all-around. Body is soft and full with lower carbonation. Overall, maybe a touch on the sweet side for it’s ABV, but compares favorably with many German examples I’ve had. The ashy finish is the only thing really holding this back. And what was that gushing about?

Not a bad double. Not my favorite style but really cleans the palate after a raft of IPAs. This is a little sweet and I detect a hint of wheat at the end. It really sticks on the tongue for awhile

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - APR 3, 2010
Ruby red with a good sized beige head. Notes of caramel . Sweet caramel malts dominate taste, with a slight bread flavor in there as well. This is a full bodied, slightly bitter, smooth creamy treat. Definitely the best Einhorn beer I’ve had and a great doppel bock.

mastabass666 (277) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Dark brown. Aroma-floral, smoky, roasty. Taste-rich, nicely balanced yeast and malt flavors. Very floral and a bit smoky on the palate, which is excellent. Full bodied. Very fine beer.
