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.

Flaska från SAveur-bier drucken med ölföreningen. En stor maltsöt dubbelbock. Stor maltsöt smaker med mycket torkad frukt, vanilj, plommon, körsbärsgodis, trocadero. Riktigt gott men väldigt sött.

Bouteille de 750ml. Arôme sucré subtil. Mousse fin qui s’efface rapidement. En bouche, c’est vinifié et sucré. Finale d’alcool.

Beardbeerman (229) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
2011 cork bottle reviewed in 2011. Pours a deep chesnut topped by a finger or so of light beige head showing average retention and some faint lacing. The nose is dark ripe fruit, sweet roasted malts and chocolate and a good dark bread feature. The same breadiness come through the taste with sweet chocolate and plums with a nice and round feel. The hops don’t get much room as the malts dominate the palate all the way through to the medium finish but it’s still a very nice product. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours black with a quickly disappearing brown head that leaves no lacing. Aroma of caramel and hay. Medium to heavy sweet, average carbo, oily texture, medium to full body, flavors of brown sugar, chocolate and dark roasted malts leading to a brief sweet syrupy finish.

reggiedunlop (3403) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours an opaque chestnut /ruby color with a medium tan head. Aroma has notes of fig and prune...some brown sugar and mild booziness. Flavor follows suit but opens up some more with earthy/leathery notes...some underlying chocolate is peeking through. Mouthfeel is full and silky with an earthy/roasty dry finish.

DrSilverworm (7967) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2014
4oz on tap at Liberty’s, for $3.50. Mostly clear red brown color, thin ring of khaki head, dots and bits of lace. Up front, dark fruit, raisin, chocolate, big nuttiness, and a touch of licorice. Kind of sweet, but an impressively potent aroma. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of chewy, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Good, full feel. Love the chocolate and mild raisin in the aftertaste. Bigger sweet taste, but not cloying. Mildly spicy. Mild bitter. Solid, tasty, impressive but sweeter doppelbock.

VincentDamon (375) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Bière orangée coiffée d’une mousse quelque peu fugace. Nez puissant de mélasse, de fruits confits et de sucre d’orge. En bouche, c’est tout aussi puissant et complexe : sucre, fruits rouges, cassis, prune. Explosion de saveurs. Excellente.

Metalchopz (2526) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours a hazy deep amber colour with mild red highlights. Big frothy beige head that lasts long with some foamy lace. Lots of raisins and plums in the aromas. Eventually, yeast come out with some spices and mild hops. Sweet flavours with the dark fruits and hints of chocolate. Caramel blended with the light grassy hops. Good brew, but a little too much for such a big bottle. The sweetness does not help.
