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.

Had it straight fron the bottle so dont know what exact color or head was it. First sip was quite pleasant, had some nice flavour to it, this beer has thin body though with a bit watery finish and a bit too carbonated. Leaves kinda sour aftertaste in your mouth. But comparing to some other cheap lagers this is quite alright. Would definetley buy again for a party or smth, not for solo tasting.

A dark brown brew with a small head. A nutty, malty, with a little caramel thrown in making it awesome. I was shocked as to how drinkable and smooth this was. I’m going to try it again later since my rating seems to be out of whack with most others. Maybe it caught me on a good day or this one really appeals to my palate...kinda like how most IPAs don’t.

euniceradio (76) - Colton, California, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pours a beautiful black cherry brown. Head is a light tan. Dissipates quickly. No lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, light cocoa powder, and buttered bread. Taste is sweet malts, with hints of caramel, chocolate and buttery cracker. Finish has some bitter and sweet black cherry. Decent take on a bock.

Chestnut brown pour with aroma of bread and nuts. Sweet caramel malt flavor with some hints of bread. Decent beer.

Can from somewhere in GA. Aroma is malts and rock candy. Taste is malted cola and BBQ squirrel meat.

Beerenberger (1561) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2015
The aroma is malty and nutty while the pour is a cherry coke brown with a non-lasting tan head and nominal lacing. On the tongue, the taste is much like the nose. Richly roasted malts and a nuttiness. Having said that, it was just not a good example of a Doppelbock. Sad. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, drinkable but kewpie doll.

ccex (1022) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2015
12 oz. bottle pors a clear copper brown with small off-white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma has caramel malt, some nuts, and perhaps some brown sugar. Taste is slightly sweet, but without much flavor or finish. Body is light with slight carbonation--way too watery for a doppelbock. It’s easily drinkable, though. Nothing exciting here, except for the glare I used to get when I would bring home six o of these from the grocery store and tell my wife it made me think of her.

zach8270 (3779) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 14, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thin tan head. Very mild malty aroma and some vegetal hints. Flavor is mild and watery as well. Some caramel malts and not much else to it.

maxwelldeux (4102) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a small tan head on there. Nose has some strong caramel notes to it with just a bit of toasting to it. Taste is a bit sweet and nicely caramely. Pretty light and easy drink, though nothing terribly overwhelming.

Westmeister (1994) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2015
Dark brown. Smell is sweet brown sugar, nutty, earthy. Taste is lots of sweet caramel, hazelnut, earthy. Tad too sweet for me.

chinchill (2718) - South Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2015
12 oz.bottle dated April 2015. Pours a dark reddish brown, excellent clarity, with a small light tan head. Head reduces quickly to a thin ring. Smell: fine, rich, malty aroma with suggestions of dark bread and chocolate. Taste: Milder that the aroma suggests. Slightly sweet. Medium body with some bite rather low carbonation. O - Not bad, but rather mild flavor for style.
