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.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a brown color with a quickly dissipating beige head and some lacing. The aroma is caramel and chocolate. The taste is caramel, grassy hops, and some toffee. It’s carbonated and a bit thin. I thought this was decent enough.

Deep chestnet brown with tan head. No decernable aroma but it is a little cold. Flavor is similar to other double bocks I have had but presents as a bit fake carmel similar to dos x amber. Not bad just not deep flavor i am looking for. A bit thin.

Poured into a snifter. 2.5 A: Deep brown color. Two fingers of foamy tan head. Retention is below average and just a wisp or two of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Surprisingly roasty with chocolate. Dry overall, like a schwarzbier. Simple, but surprisingly adequate. 3.0 T: It also tastes like a schwarzbier. Dry roastiness, light neutral maltiness. Hints of chocolate and caramel. Not a lot of flavor overall though. 3.25 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Fairly smooth. Decent here. 3.25 D: It really isn’t too bad. Definitely better than most of the Leiny lineup. ★ 605 characters DavoleBomb, Jan 23, 2015

Red Amber color. Caramel malt aroma. Taste- caramel malt dominates. Pretty one dimensional. Some light grassy hops lend some balance. Pretty sweet. Caramel roll-ish. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was sweet and malty with dark fruits and some caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with dark fruits and some chocolate. Not bad.

BillWyce (959) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours clear copper color, with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Mild aroma of caramel mixed with a biscuit note. Medium body, just a touch syrupy, with a dry finish. Flavor is nutty, with touches of caramel and citrus underneath. Biscuit note at the back.

coffee, brown sugar & corn i smell, clear dark mahogany with thick khaki head. A light lemon atop the brown sugar and wheat bread flavors, sweet but not overly. Has a some weight in the mouth but still tingly..

Malty, nutty, and sweet. Hints of cherry and citrus. Earthy, smooth, and drinkable. A bit too much fruitiness for the style, but not terrible overall.
