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.

Bottle. Full of malty sweetness, but no real depth. Some hops profile, but not in balance. This Doppelbock is an easy drinker, but it isn’t something to search out.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a dark brown-mahogany color with a one finger head of tan colored foam. The head has a lighter level of retention fading rather fast to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is lighter overall and consists mainly of a caramel and molasses aroma. Along with these smells are some light bready smells as well as a hint of darker fruits of raisin and plum. Taste – The taste begins with a malty taste that is mainly of a toasted bready taste. Along with this flavor are some sweeter tastes of caramel, molasses, and a light dark fruit taste. As the taste advances the malt fades a little bit with a bit more molasses and dark fruit, as well as a little bit of hay coming to the tongue. These tastes take the taste to the end to leave one with a moderately dark, sweet, and malty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the thinner side for a doppelbock with a carbonation level that is medium. For the lower abv. of only 5.7 % the feel was decently appropriate, although for the style a thinner carbonation and thicker body would have accentuated the malt and sweet more nicely. Overall – A decent brew overall. It has a malty and sweet taste of a doppel all while not being as potent as most. Still it lacked some depth of flavor and feel that a bigger doppel may contain (if done right). Not bad, but nothing superb either.

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.

highibus (770) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2016
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.

DavoleBomb (1744) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
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.

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.
