Our world-famous Doppelbock is the culmination of Bavarian brewing. In every sip, you see the decades of tinkering Feilerei and our brewmaster for the perfect buck. Full-bodied and malty runs every sip as oil through the throat of the beer connoisseur, strong and black as it shines from the pitcher. Because of its ingredients wins the claim: "Beer is the bread of Bavaria" a new meaning.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Candied dark fruit, molasses and caramel lead to earthy hops and toasted sugars in this rich Doppelbock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy dark brown.
-Alcohol is well hidden throughout.
-Carbonation, in the tap version, was a bit too much for the style, imho.
-The bottle proved to be more polished and totally world-class within its category. Above rating is an average of both tap and bottle experiences.

On tap at the brewery and from the bottle.

(Bue sur place): Superbe nez de caramel et de torréfaction, je croirais respirer les ’’friandises outils’’ comme plus d’une fois avec les Doppelbock. Bonne charpente mais jamais lourde.

bottle from pivni rozmanitost in prague, lagered for roughly a year. rich dark purple with a thin head; aroma of stonefruit - peach schnapps; quite sweet and sticky but in a refined, treacle way with just the right amount of grassy/tinny bitterness.

Erzengel (4893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2014
Süßlich-malziger Geruch. Der Schaum verflüchtigt sich sehr schnell. Im Antrunk ist das Bier schön süffig-angenehm süßlich. Zum Hauptteil entfaltet sich eine schöne malzige Note. Schon etwas ins Röstmalzig gehende. Dabei angenehm süß und nicht zu klebrig. Keinerlei alkoholische Note spürbar. Der Nachgeschmack wird sogar noch röstmalziger - es bleibt eine schön verbrannte Brotkrustennote im Mund. Oder auch schönes dunkles Schwarzbrot sehr gelungen! Erst ganz zum Ende hin wird es etwas klebriger. Aber nicht besonders stören!
--> Ein sehr leckerer Doppelbock!

(Bottle, 0.5 l, from Frizzz Getänke in Regensburg, 20130713) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, molasses and caramell. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, sugar, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A decent doppelbock with nice maltiness.

Bottle from Frizzl Gertänkemarkt, Regensburg. Very dark red, almost black. Rich aroma. Full body, dried fruit, prunes. Burned sugar, some roasted grain. Fine balance, this belongs in the top league of Dobbelbocks.

My 2nd, Palmator Dunkler Doppelbock, from Prösselbräu Adlersberg. Yep, the color is pitch black... ain’t no light gettin’ through this puppy... under a tan head with large light bubbles that last longer than I wished... shouldn’t have made such a strong pour. ABV = 7.4% printed on my bottle. The aroma has plums, dates, sweet caramel, as if they were cooked all into a sauce! This smells almost like a Belgium trippel. Let’s see if the flavor matches the wonderful aroma. The front has a decent amount of tartness and the sides give you some of the same flavor or plums, dates and sweet carmel, but also a little bitterness, not much, but it’s noticeable if you try to find it. Then in the back it’s sweet caramels but in a burnt, molasses kind of way. Yes, it’s like motor oil, not as thick and chewy as Pax’s Lakritz Oatmeal Stout, but the chewiest German brew I’ve had other than that. I love how it sits on the tongue and glides over it, going from tart, to plum/dates sweet to burnt, roasted flavors that I usually associate with sweet Stout. It still tastes like German malts, though, and doesn’t feel like a British brew, yet it has some of the same quality without the esters and fruitiness of a London Ale yeast. I’m not sure that make sense, does it? The aftertaste is that same plum/dates/caramel mix flavor with Vienna or Münchener malt flavor thrown in as a teaser, just at the end. The only real drawback I feel is that you can taste the hotness of the alcohol. Being filtered and sitting in my cellar for 2 months should have helped that dissipate, but it’s only something I noticed on the first few sips, after which it disappeared. Overall, this is close to a WOW beer. Except for the hotness of the alcohol you can taste, it’s a great beer.
