COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our GABF award-winning Doppel Bock is brewed in the spring and lagered for six months to ensure only the smoothest Bock experience. Released in very limited quantities each fall, availability of our autumnal treat is as fleeting as the changing fall colors.

Hangover (1064) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Beautiful garnet color with a nice tan head. Aroma is malty with some smoke and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied. Flavor is sticky sweet, coffee like with some smokiness. Lingering creamy, malty smokey finish. Some chocolate even comes through when warmed a bit. Not a hint of alcohol. Definitely a treat.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (March 2012). Pours a dark caramel brown with some soapy bubbles. The aroma has a mix of sweet malts and some dark fruit with a bigmeaty smoked ccharacter. Light spicy notes. The flavor is more meaty smoked malt, some caramel, dark fruit with a spicy bite. This was better than I would have guessed.

Interstimg and complex.enough to.score well, but I canít really say I would.want it again. Copper with a beige head. Sweet country ham and a campfire hits the nose. The taste is caramel candy sweet and smokey.

doublebock (514) - California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Copper color with beige foamy head. Aroma of bread and honey. Malty and slightly peaty with caramel, almonds and butterscotch. A very solid example of the style. Even though the beer claims to be "double smoked" it certainly does not overwhelm like many a Rauchbier.

Cybercat (3503) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Strong, rich aroma has notes of caramel, horehound, roast malt and quality coffee plus just a snip of semi-sweet chocolate. It pours a clear sienna, with not much head - but this may be because my sample was the dregs of the keg. Robust flavor has a core of roast malt and notes of caramel and horehound plus a hint of honey sweetness. Texture is firm and smooth, though lacking in fizz - but Iíll give it a break because, as I said, this was the last squirt from the keg. Maybe next autumn Iíll get a better sample.

dalekliz (882) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber-red with a white ring. Aroma of smoke, malt, meat, wood, and candied bacon. Taste of meat, malt, a hint of citrus, and wood. Lingering meaty malt. Hides the alcohol well. Different and tasty.

bomber from Supermarket Liquors - Fort Collins. Nose is lightly smoked bacon, lightly burned candisugar, and some caramel. Clear rusty brown with a big, heavy lacing beige head. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, with light smoke and very light bitterness. Smooth as silk.
