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.

Bottle from Ralphs. 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 isnít the case. Solid Dopplebock.

A 12oz bottle from Pickís Liquors poured into a Shaker. Pours a dark brown, almost black. Small amount of frothy off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma strongly of coffee malt. Something else is there too, maybe a slight hop aroma. Taste is medium bitter and lightly sweet. Definite coffee tastes and something a little sweet but I canít quite place it. Itís medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation adds to its long bitter finish. Overall, this beer is awesome. Itís a great dark beer and even though its about 90 degrees outside, I plan to go on out and enjoy this one in the sunshine. The fact that they donate part of their profits to help fire departments definitely gives them some brown nose points in my book too. Iíll definitely be buying this one again!

My second favorite of the trio currently offered. This double bock pours brown/black and has a nice malty aroma. Lighter than a traditional dopple this would make a good introductory beer to the world of German style beers.

Bottled. Stupid name for a DB. Pours dark brown, slightly tan medium head. Malts tasted a bit too cooked, sweetness. A tolerable DB, nothing more.

12 oz bottle from Tipsyís. 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.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Itís got that same green root shism the redhead has. Sweet cocoa aromatics with a shy forth. Rich on the tongue with a bit of carbonation. Cocoa, coffee and tree roots. Long sticky finish.

Out of the bottle. Aroma is a nice, dark bread and cocoa. Rich malt. Dark brown with a beige head that leaves a collar. Flavor is husky malt and slightly syrupy. Flavor leaves quickly with only a sweetness remaining. Lacks the complexity of a good DB, but tolerable.
