COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditionally styled Doublebock with rich structure, bold flavors and silky smooth finish. Handcrafted with a heavy dose of toasted chocolate malts to create a refined microbrew of uncompromised quality.

DYCSoccer17 (3620) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2014
12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at Frenchy’s in Woodland. The aroma is of sweet chocolate, cocoa, and some light peat. Perhaps a little butterscotch, too. Somewhat transparent mahogany body with a small, weak, quickly dissipating light tan head. Starts with a general sweet, sugary flavor, before some peat comes through in the middle. Very light-bodied, and quite sweet. Lots of residual sugars present. Fairly thin, and one-dimensional.

From bottle. Pours black with some tan head. Nose is dominated by roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Heavy mouthfeel; smoky taste. Lingering, unpleasant aftertaste. Not for me.

unclemike (2871) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 8, 2014
Roasted nose. Good deal of malt and coffee. Slight sweetness up front. Good roasty flavors. Pretty tasty. I was a bit worried about this beer being overly sweet. That isn’t the case. Solid Dopplebock.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Decent doppelbock, on tap at the Los Angeles Beer Festival 2014, dark brown with a large tan head. Smells rich and coffee. Medium body, malty finish.

Good dopplebock. For 8% ABV it is really drinkable. Not a treacly malt bomb. Balanced and smooth.

ajnepple (4994) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2014
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Brown, almost black appearance with a small tan head, mostly diminishing, no lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, milk chocolate, caramel, vanilla and toffee. Similar flavor, malty, sweet and creamy with minimal bitterness. Medium to full body, slick and smooth with soft carbonation and a rich finish.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma notes of chocolate with dark bread and a hint of roasted malts. Flavor has a chalky chocolate flavor with a bit of roasted malts and earthy grains.

DuffMan (9499) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Dark brown, tan head, no lace. Sweet brown sugar malts, nearing syrupy proportions. Sugary sweet but lacking complexity and hearty malt structure.

GIJOE (1078) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Pours almost black, thin off-white head. Nose is malty, notes of chocolate. Taste is sweet, but a little hop bite comes through. Medium body, lively carbonation. Nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
