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.

DrSilverworm (6979) - 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 (370) - 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 (2405) - 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.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Rating #1063 - April 23, 2014 - Bottle from Coop. Rich blackbrown pour with a creamy tan head that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is roast malts, hint of chocolate and weak coffee, mild nuttiness (almond). Mild carbonation, medium-heavy alcohol warmth, little yeasty whiff as well. Palate is more malt character, nutty, chocolatey. Velvety texture that is almost dream-like.

RexTalionis (2616) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours near clear dark mahogny in color with a tan head. Brown sugary sweetness, bit of dark cake, some malty notes and cocoa in aroma. Roasted malty taste with notes of sweet toffee and dark fruits. More leaning to the chocolate in the end though. Malty finish. Decent.

AgentAle (794) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Aroma is rich caramel, raisins and sweet malts. Taste is like aroma in that the very deep complex sweet malts work so well and finish smoothly. Very light clove bitterness. Appearance is a deep mirky amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.
