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.

Bottle, this beer had a clear dark red pour (there was some sediment swirling around in the glass) with an initial two finger high off-white head, the effervescence was pretty lively with many streams of bubbles flowing in the glass, it left some spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, there was lots of malt aroma of bread and melanoidins, bread and candy/caramel like sweetness, this beer had generous sweetness, the flavors were toasted malt, some melanoidins, a little raisin, caramel and candy sweetness, there was no hop bitterness, just a little alcohol bite on the palate, there was a touch of alcohol warmth on the palate, the mouth feel was less than medium (thinner than what I would expect for a doppelbock), this beer is pretty sweet on the nose but not so on the palate, a good drink, I can see this beer as a sneaker as it feels light on the palate.

Pours a rich dark brownish black with a nice head. Nose is malty, toasty and chocolatey . Taste is rich in mocha and malty, and drinks very easily. Finish is dry and sweet, actually quite thirst quenching, like all lagers. Pleasant enough doppelbock. Quaff Score 7/ 10

Pours a dark amber with an off white head and aroma of chocolate and malts. Taste is toasty, of roasted malts, chocolate, and caramel with a creamy mouthful and smooth finish. Drinkable, solid, enjoyable brew.

AWISLguy (1160) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle from Three Cellars. Pours reddish brown (brownish red?) with a mostly white head. Some nice wedding dress lacing on the sides. Aroma has super sweet syrupy caramel, rum raisin and nuts with some earthiness. Taste is of sweet toffee, brown sugar, dark fruits, fizzy lemonade and grain. Very, very sweet and thick. Finishes sweet with some sourness. A doppel without doughiness/breadiness that is still thick. Interesting. Too sweet to be a preferred one.

Scipio (679) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a full beige head. Darker aroma consisting of raisin, caramel, nuts, pepper, and bread. Aroma is heavier in raisin and nuts, a bit spicy, and some chocolate notes underneath. More full in body than the average beer and feels thicker when drinking. Not bad, but this wouldn’t be my first choice.
