doublebock (500) - California, USA - MAR 19, 2012
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.

tgncc (2767) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2012
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.

Palidor19 (2931) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2012
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

nick76 (4212) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2012
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 (488) - 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.

JohnnyJ (4306) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2012
500 ml bottle. Clear amber pour, off white tannish. Sweetness, stale malt, a bit of fruit, and musty hops. A little boozy. Not a big fan.

mike67 (779) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2012
500 ml bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours red with a short lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of caramel malt, grassy hops and some funk. Malt, hops and booze unpleasantly combine on the palate. It was a drain pour beer for me. What a waste of money.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
seymour (1410) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Tasted from a cool 1 pt 9 oz swing-top bottle into nucleated pint glass. Poured a clear deep copper color with fluffy off-white foam, lasting with some lace. Aromas of toast, caramelized brown sugar, very little hops, very faint roastiness and fruitiness. Strong malliard/melanoidin flavors: that elusive tart, toasty, roasty, browned, almost burnt, mildly fruity, mostly dry impression usually derived from Munich malt recipes. Unfortunately, this is not a very balanced beer, though. Too much residual sweetness. Aromas and flavors of alcohol are much too hot and harsh; perhaps the fermentation temperature was too high. Medium body, low carbonation. Unpleasant, almost astringent aftertaste. The look of the bottle and the beer itself are really the only strengths.
