A very nice beer. Great flavor, no bitter aftertaste. Goes down smoothly. Rich, creamy head. Great aroma, full-bodied taste, nice rich color.

I’d classify this more as a dunkel than a doppelbock - too light on the palate, thin, lack of alcohol presence, and no real malt complexity. Soft, bubble gum taste with smooth caramel malts. Way to mellow for a doppelbock, and way to uninteresting for me. Won’t choose this one again.

Goes down smooth, Sweet Chocolate / Carmel taste, Rich brown body with an amber colored head. No aftertaste which is kind of disappointing though, this is one of those beers you wish would linger. Overall one of my favorites. My only complaint is I can’t find it outside of the flatlands.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 Doppelbock?!? This is more of a watery dunkel than anything else. And not a very tasty one at that. To sell it as a bock would be false advertizing. You can tell this is the son of a Miller.

More like a quarter bock to me. I tkind of has a bock like aroma, and kind of a bock like taste. At least it looks like a bock. Kind of a disappointing BMC attempt at a double-b. Worth the rating but I won’t revisit it.

Drank out of a bottle. Brownish red color, small light tan head. Goes down smooth with a sweet after taste. Good midwest beer.

This beer has a taste that is hoppy it also has a chocolat flavor it is also hard to find in the south or any where out of the midwest.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit too sweet for me, not too much of a doppelbock flavor, not a bad beer, but not too much of a dopplebock. I’d drink it again, but I wouldn’t seek it out. Thanks to Duane for this one!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark drown pour with a big tan head. Not much carbonation which leads to a smooth texture on your palate. Very malty aroma with a dark fruityness coming through. Flavor is sweet with a roasted and fruity flavor. I thought the alcohol was well hidden for a d-bock, but the 5.79% explains it.

Bottle. Not too shabby. Very dark brownish red color. Very malty and tasty. Not sure this is a dopple-bock, but it’s good. Strong chocolaty toffee flavor.
