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.

Aroma is sweet with maltiness apparent. Has a very thick, frothy head. Very smooth almost like a Guinness but sweeter and comes off the palate quicker. I'm not crazy about it, but it's not too bad. I would consider it if I were really in the mood for a Guinness-like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarinEvelyn (642) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2015
very malty, caramel, full-bodied, can taste the hops but well hidden by the malts. I don’t know what to really say about this one. It’s decent, nothing crazy.

Attractive ruby amber with a small tan head. Malty, light bread and caramel aroma. Flavor is very toasty and bread crusty. Earthy. Minimal bitterness. Pretty dry. Light body. Its hardly there. Too plain.
