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.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours darkish amber with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aromas of dark malt, dark fruit, and maybe noble hop. It’s malty, but not syrupy. Rather brown sugar, but there’s some herb/noble hop that cuts into the sweetness. Sufficiently so that the malt flavor is available without alot of sweet. Drinks very nicely.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
A: The pour is a mahogany color with a finger of khaki colored head. S: Nice dark fruits on the nose up front which provides a fair amount of the sweetness, the rest of it coming from caramel maltiness. A little bit of toasted malt and a sort of surprising amount of roast. T: More caramel and toffee malt type sweetness on the flavor. Still some dark fruit notes, but not as pronounced as on the nose. Some breadiness is there as well. A bit of alcohol, unfortunately. M: Medium in body and carbonation. O: This wasn’t the best doppelbock, which is sort of surprising because the Great Lakes lagers I’ve had have generally been quite good.

TwoSipDip (8894) - 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.
