COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leinenkugel’s is pleased to bring back Leinenkugel’s Big Butt Doppelbock into its limited-release portfolio. The name "Big Butt" comes from the image of two goats butting heads that you see on the label. Bock means billy goat in German and Leinenkugel’s Big Butt Doppelbock’s name and label pokes fun at the goat’s springtime mating ritual. The result is a malty, rich, full-bodied bock beer brewed with two-and six-row pale and specialty malts and two specialty hops. Like all Leinie’s beers, Big Butt Doppelbock is handcrafted one batch at a time in our historic Chippewa Falls brewery.

Deep amber pour with lasting head and clinging lace. Aroma is sweet toasty malt and little to no fruit no abv. Flavor is sweet malt, light dried fruit. A sourness and a medium bitter that has a staleness to it. Also slight oxidation. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy. Drinkable but not sure about doppelbock

Bottle. Brown and amber in the glass. Thin fast head. Fine bubble front beaks to a tin sweet brown make. Finishes corny. Think I’m scared of the after effects.

Originally rated on 7/30/08. Big butt pours a dark amber body, with a light tan head, and medium carbonation. Aroma is very light with hints of coffee and caramel. Mouthfeel is kinda watery, not very substancial. Flavor is rather light but chocolate and roasted malts are present, it also had a slight metallic twinge. Overall its too thin, but its not bad and it is drinkable.

In a 12 oz bottle. A musty malty initial taste with a sweetness edge. A quick finish with no lingering taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of May 02, 2016. Mahogany-red pour with a quick lasting off-white head. The nose features sweet malts, a yeasty quality, and a kind of fruit juice quality. Maybe closer to pear. The body is light to medium. The taste has a more fruity quality to it and less of a malty quality.

LetsGoState (765) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Aroma is a fairly bland malt. Taste has hints of roasted malts, but no character. Overall not the greatest.

tekstr1der (326) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Bordering on adjunct quality, this pours a nice amber with minimal head. While some malty tones come through in the nose, the flavor suffers from flat tones and cheapness in taste.

12oz bottle from the state store
Pours clear dark mahogany with a small beige head, light lacing. Aroma is bready, toasted malts and mild smokiness. Flavors of toasted malts, caramel, raisins and herbal spices
Decent

One day I’ll just stop. A sad excuse for a great classic style. Thin and spritzer like with little depth to the sweet bready nose and flavor.
