COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dopple Bock is German meaning “Double Bock” or double strength beer. It is a high-gravity lager beer at 9% alcohol by volume. Our Dopplebock would best be described as a Lager version of a Porter. It is black in color, with a red tinge. It is a malty beer with notes of raisins and other dark stone fruit coupled with a warming ethanol complexity. The body is full and the finish lingers.

My god. Its full of malt. Smells like a Charleston chew. Deep reddish brown with a towering white head. Aroma is complex with cherry, oats, oak. First quaff shows a strong alcohol burn. Flavor brings to mind red Twizzlers. Bitter, but very sweet. Sometimes cloying.

Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany-hued body with a thin, slender layering of light tan-colored foam. Smell: Sweet-scented, malty aroma which smells of bread and sugared notes of caramel, chocolate, and brown sugar. Dark fruitiness that emboldens as the beer warms. Teensy weensy background hint of dried herbs. Taste: Maltiness displays a dark, modestly toasted breadiness, tastes of caramel and dark sugar and has a big, but never cloying sweetness to it. Light cocoa powder. Vibrant dark fruitiness of raisins and figs, but also a drizzle of apricot of juice in there. Minor hop character, faintly herbal in nature and with a rather low bitterness. Clean German lager yeast character. Drying, lightly warming, malty finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A rich lager loaded with maltiness and inviting alcohol warmth. A relaxing brew, even. Looking forward to trying more beers from Olde Hickory in the future.

Bottle from the brewery. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin head to it. Has a malty fruity smell to it. Has a really nice taste of malt, raison, maybe some fig in there as well.

I sampled this from a 22oz bottle. This dark red pour has an off white head along with a malty sweet aroma. The flavor has notes of raisins, plums & figs. Interesting and tasty, I enjoyed it.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Lively, fruity malt aroma, with sweettart candy tones. Dark, burnt orange, great bottle with a waxed neck and good label. Nicely bitter, plenty of malt but drier than I thought that this was going to be. Didn’t have the metal twang that a lot of doppels have. Long bitter finish in the forward palate, some chalkiness on the back. Medium-heavy body. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from Carolina.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark red color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a nuttyness, toffee, caramel and dark fruit. The flavor is more of the same with the addition of some roasted malt. The dark fruit and toffee malt really stand out. The alcohol is very well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice doppelbock.

(22oz bottle thanks to blutt59) rich deep brown/ruby with a ring of tan bubbles. Nose of sweet brown sugar, caramel and raisins. Taste of spicy hops, orange marmalade, caramel and alcohol. Nice Dopplebock!
