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.

Initial head was dense and rich, but it was quickly gone. With deep inhalation I could pick up what seemed to me some coffee aromas amid the caramel. But this is Sanka to a Turkish Espresso, because despite the slighty syrupy mouthfeel and the injection of sweetness that it provides, only a hint of alcohol in the flavor and some vague caramel notes can rescue this from being a bottom-barrel doppelbock. It is better than bottom-barrel, but it still has the make-up of an inexpensive wannabe.

This doppelbock starts out fairly well, with a nice color, but lacking head, and a light, sweet aroma. Flavor is also fairly light, with a pronounced licorice note. A nice, easy drinking doppel.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Dios mio! What a puckering sour tone you have, Lardass. This is a very thin, watery version of Doppelbock, although hints of characteristic flavors (syrupy, caramely malts) are present. Hits the tongue with a nasty sourness which soon subsides to a weak, sweet flavor. Doppelbock for the masses? Pass on it. This one tarnishes the name "Doppelbock."

Panzuriel (1378) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Brown color with a nice head that dissappears quickly. Nice taste but somewhat watery. SOme sweet malt going on but not that much Sorta weak and watery really.

Light brown. Large, thin head that lasts. Roasted flavor. A little thin, but not bad.

Well, Apon another bottle, I have to re-rate just a bit. Maybe this will teach me to have a few before rating. Anyway, Color was near to root beer, Head dissappeared rapidly. Taste was decent, but there was just not quite enough there. Sort of a sweet&sour but pleasant but with a slightly watery mouth feel. I'd prefere a bit more carbonation. I would not turn one down, but I'll need to be in the mood for it when I get it again. Worth a try.

WisconsinBeer (714) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2005 Malty with hints of caramel and chocolate. Tastes somewhat like a chocolate malt! Mouthfeel isnt very thick and the beer isnt really that strong, but it tastes pretty good. Look forward to this every year.

Good beer for pint night, Leinenkugel has a strong nutty flavor that many of Miller's other variants could benefit from.

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2003
seemed like their regular bock but with more alcohol. little bit bland for a doppel. But at 6 dollars a sixer I am sure I will be having this again.
