RedSox2004 (1672) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Poured clear amber brown, a generous frothy head, and ok lacing. Aromas of pale malts, honey and caramel. Flavor is mostly light fruit and malt sweetness, with little in terms of hops. Light to medium bodied, somewhat watery mouthfeel, and a somewhat chewy breadiness in the aftertaste.

Overall, a pretty boring beer. Taste was good, but not great. Nice and strong to fuzzy my edges, but other than that.... Not that exited about it.

500 ml bottle. Pours an opaque light mahogany. Aroma of cereal, nuts, grain, ’roasty". Flavor is bubblegum, caramel, peat, leather, resin. Has a slightly sour finish. An okay doppelbock, but not that great.

Clear light brown color with white head. Yeasty cola aroma. Definitely lacking the chewy sweet maltiness of a typical doublebock. Malty cola flavor with toffee and licorice notes.

Bottle from trader Joes. The aroma is sweet, malty, molasses, fruit, alcohol. Translucent red appearance, white head. The flavor is sweet also, malty, brown sugar, boozy. The booze comes through on this. The finish is again boozy, sweet, some piney hops. Medium to medium/thick in body. Not great. Not worthy of the dopplebock name, but enjoyable enough. Especially for the price.

Nice and rich with lots of dark malt with a strong flavor and a high emphasis on malt. Its got a nice nutty flavor with very little hop but. Good overall drinking beer

The aroma is rather malty with some grassy hops and fruit. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a nice beer but thats all.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Cool bottle- flip-top. Trader Joe’s. Amber / copper, not a "double-dark" though. Aroma is tart cherries, almond extract, sweet malt. Taste starts sweet again, then turns tart at the finish, astringent is a good description from a prior review. Not getting any hop bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. Too much wheat beer tartness for the style. This is not a doppelbock. Hard to pin down.

A fairly sweet aroma. This is a pretty average beer. Not too sweet, a bit sticky and cloying.

First, don’t call yourself "Double Dark" when you are amber at best. The beer pours nice. Mostly clear. The head disappeared quickly, but had good lacing. But it loses points for its name. Smells of Munich and dark crystal malts. Astrigent flavor from the dark crystal. Little body. Watery and cloyingly sweet. Sadly another mediocre beer farmed out to Trader Joe’s.
