COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Round and malty, our doppelbock lager (German for "double bock") celebrates the style originally developed by medieval monks. Just as the monks appreciated this hearty brew in the late winter/early spring, we savor the flavors of this rich beer along with a double dose of our favorite pastime, rock and roll. In keeping with the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, this beer is traditionally brewed from all natural ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water. No chemicals or preservatives are used.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle courtesy of theisti. Pours a chestnut brown with a khaki two-finger head. The nose is of dark, almost burnt caramel and biscuits. Medium-bodied with soft, fine carbonation and a drying, mildly astringent finish. The flavor follows the aroma: round, malty and fairly dry, with a dry, slightly herbal finish. This is an interesting rendition on the style. Thanks again for the bottle, Tim.

Notes from April 2011... Looks like coke with a head on it... aromas of malt caramel and dried fruit. Malty with some caramel and slight chocolatey notes and medium bodied, some sourness, hint of that ABV. Nice.

emacgee (4024) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Thanks jsquire. Rich amber pour with one finger of fizzy yellow head. bready nose with lots of malt and melanoidin, caramel, and toasted grain with fruity notes. Heavy grain and bread component, kind of singular @ that. Herbal and lightly fruity hop character. Nice enough but gets kind of cloying and one dimensional.

Pours a deep Amber with a thin Tan head. Aromas of barley, sour grapes and bread. Taste is quite sour, malt, acidic and pungent. I dont get the overpowering boozy taste, the booze is what holds this together. Feels like this brew is missing something. Not my favorite dopplebock.

Big thanks to Theisti for this beer. 12oz bottle, bb 5/29/12. Reddish colored. The aroma is jam packed with rich melanoidins with a touch of chocolate and a bit of homemade dulce de leche. The taste is rich melanoidin, think of freshly toasted pain de campagne, as well a small amount of cocoa and prunes. Balance is perfect. There is a bit of lingering sweetness, never cloying, and probably due to the low hopping rather than any sort of underattenuation. This is a great example.

jcnielsen (2099) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with off white head. Strong nutty, alcohol flavor. Smoke, alcohol, malty. Too much alcohol in flavor for a 7% beer.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle @ Brad’s house Minneapolis. Pours a somewhat hazy, reddish brown appearance with a bubbly, brown head. A touch smoky, rich, caramel/Caramunich malty, somewhat sugary, brown sugar aroma that is pretty appetizing. A touch thin mouth feel but delicious toasty malty flavor with notes of meaty smoke, toffee, caramel, and light chocolate. One of the better American-made Doppelbocks that I’ve had.
