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.

Tmoney99 (10405) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body. Moderate toasted malt flavor with a light bitter finish of average duration.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle... Clear ruby lager with a small, fizzy, beige head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel, maple syrup and chocolate malt. The flavor is medium sweet, but hopped adequately to eliminate any chance of the malts becoming cloying. Maple and plum. Full-bodied and almost fatty with lively carbonation. Finishes fairly clean. Thanks to headbanger for shipping the bottle to me!

BMan1113VR (7819) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pours with a largish, light brown head covering a clear dark brown body. Aroma of rotten fruits, vanilla and tabacco. Some splotchy lacing. Tastes of something nutty, soil, and some light porter-dry coffee notes. Fizzy.

DocLock (7700) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Thanks to Duane. This is my last beer from Duane, and they have all been very good. This one pours a deep, vibrant ruby color with a medium, creamy white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, plum, and prunes. Tastes very malty, with the aforementioned dark fruits and a slight, tart cherry finish. Delicious. Not super dense or complex like many doppelbocks, but very good nonetheless.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2002
Another solid offering from Leinenkugel. They are probably my overall favorite large-scale USA brewery, especially since they always seem to be on sale for $5/6-pack. This was not quite as good as the Creamy Dark but still good. Deep reddish-brown color with a short-lived head. Roasted coffee flavor but a little on the light side considering the color. I will definitely get this one again.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2002
I gotta admit that the name of this beer does not sound all that appetizing. This has remarkable drinkability and a great chocolate malt finish. Very smooth and balanced. I’d have to say I’m surprised Leinie’s makes this.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Bottle. Poured a deep reddish-amber with a rather short-lived beige head. Aroma picked up some roasty caramel and toffee, but there was an unpleasant aire of Nutrisweet that carried through to the flavor. Caramel and a small dose of floral bitterness were also found in the flavor. Medium-bodied at most, and I got nothing memorable from the palate (good or bad). Not one to seek out, but several steps up from most of their portfolio.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2008
bottle, black pour, nose of malts and sugar, this is way too sweet for me, some coffee and burnt chocolate with a decent body to it but just too sweet

Have had from 12oz bottle and on draft. Surprisingly sweet and clean finish; very good on draft.
