COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Doppelbock, or "Double Bock", is a dark, extra full bodied lager after the best Bavarian tradition. Such beer was created by monks for the tough fasting period of Lent. They called it "liquid bread". Look for flavor notes of chocolate, candied fruit and roasted malt.

bytemesis (3170) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle - 2011 edition. Pours clear deep ruby black with a large creamy tan head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Very malty aroma, dark sugars, molasses, chocolate, fruitcake. Flavor is medium sweet and very tasty, dark fruits, dark sugars, fruitcake, pumpernickel bread. No real bitterness per se. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. Hella nice lager.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, unclear apparently, with small compact head. It has a very strong character of rye, both the aroma and flavor, really unusual in Doppelbocks; it also has a considerable residual sweetness; the dark malts come with some acidity.
Liquid pumpernickel; not bad, but unexpected and strange.

Torrefacto (552) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2013
Precioso color rubí oscuro con espuma color crema. Aromas de frutas confitadas, azúcar moreno y un toque de licor. En boca entra suave y con cuerpo medio, los sabores dulces y afrutados se van mexclando con otros ligeramente ácidos e igualmente cargados de fruta. Un ligero gusto tostado y a madera también están presente. Muy rica.

Dfonorow (1445) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle (8.6% ABV). Pour is dark brown with a small khaki colored head. Aroma is of toffee, ripened fruits, and wood. Flavor has some more biscuit/bread but is mostly the same as the nose.

750 ml bottle. Produced on 11/2012. 8.6%. Courtesy of laiti.
Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Strong sweet maltiness and bread in the aroma. Very sweet and super malty flavour. Quite true to the German Doppelbock.

lusikka (6264) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
750 ml bottle, thanks laiti. Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, bread, raisins and some syrup. Flavour of toasted malts, raisins, wooden notes, grass, bread and some alcohol. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Finishes sweet, malty, grassy. Well balanced.

tiong (3774) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
750ml bottle

Pours dark brown with a foamy head. Aroma of bready malts, spicy notes, hints of chocolate, roastiness and yeast. Taste is warming, bready malty and spicy with hints of sweet syrup, caramel and chocolate. Finish is malty, bready and heavy with some syrupy sweetness and caramely notes. Heavy and complex doppelbock, a bit unbalanced.

laiti (5697) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
75 cl bottle (8,6%) @ Tampella, produced 11/2012
Aroma has strong malty notes, bread, cocoa and chocolate. Also some berry notes. Flavour has syrupy tones, lots of malt, bread and some berries. Feels a bit tart. Very rich, hides the ABV well.

75 cl bottle, 8.6% abv.
Pours clear dark copper-brown color with a medium head. Aroma is extremely malty, some caramel, bread, nuts, ripe fruits and some wood. Flavor is also bready and malty, lots of caramel, hay, some toffee notes, yeast and faint nutty notes. Somewhat bitter malty palate with a creamy chocolaty finish. A bit watery feel to it though, alcohol hidden very well.
