COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Vision Doppelbock highlights our brewery’s wonderful glacial spring water and has been brewed in strict adherence to the Reinheitsgebot*. This beer has a luxurious tan head and a bready aroma with a hint of smoke and is dark leather in color with ruby notes. It is lightly spiced with Liberty hops, an American version of the noble German Hallertau Mittelfruh, and fermented with lager yeast from a monastery brewery near Munich. Doppelbocks were developed by the 17th century Paulist monks of Munich. To help them through the Lenten and Advent fasts, they brewed an especially nourishing dark lager they called "liquid bread" and named "Holy Father." Try pairing with wild game - venison, goose, duck, wild boar- especially when paired with reduction or fruit sauces. It’s also great with aged gruyere, caramel flan, creme brulee, or tart tatin. 8.0% abv. *Reinheitsgebot is the world’s oldest consumer protection law. Written in Bavaria in 1516, it decreed that bere could only be brewed with hops, malted barley, water and yeast. In tribute, Grand Teton Brewing will be releasing four Cellar Reserve beers in 2009, each emphasizing one on the four true beer ingrediants.

TomTron (371) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours almost coffee black with a tan head that stays. Aromas of light chocolate malts and some caramel but a bit faint. Flavor is mainly a big malt punch with some slight coffee bitterness but is still rather drinkable and the alcohol is almost non-existent. In the realm of dopplebocks, this one might be one of the best I’ve had.

tmoreau (2384) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Shared 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters showing a nearly opaque, darkest brown color, with maybe a little ruby highlighting at the stem, frothy, tan head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was toasted, nearly roasted notes, with molasses, toffee & caramel, and a hint of salt? Medium+ bodied, carbonation was mild, with the taste showing moderate hop bitterness, modest sweetness, and negligible dark fruit influence. A solid Doppel!

Pours a very dark brown with an everlasting light tan head. Decent aromas of caramel, toffee and toast. Flavors of light peat, caramel, toffee, chocolate and bread. Alcohol shows through just a little. Moderately heavy body. Excellent Doppelbock.

A very nice doppelbock. Pours a beautiful thick black with a tan head. Not much smell, a bit of chocolate. Taste is very smooth and creamy, with a malty start and a bit of hops in the finish. Good stuff. Had on tap at Olde Sonoma Public House. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (694) - Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Pours a hazy brown with ruby highlights. Has a tan head with decent lacing. Sweet malt aroma with big breadiness and caramel. Hint of oxidation. Sweet malt taste with caramel, brown sugar, a little chocolate and toasted grain. A little oxidation in taste also. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with medium full body and moderate carbonation. Finishes with a bready aftertaste. Would like to try a fresh bottle. Has nice flavors.

Dark brown leather color with some khaki head. Smells of caramel, brown sugar, milk chocolate. Tastes are similar with a small amount roastedness, and some grain and bitter. Almost a lactic taste as well. Possibly some oxidation with this bottle need to try another. Not bad overall but tastes don't mesh well together, but again this could be oxidation related. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
