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.

Ritzn (71) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2016
Almost black with big bright beige head. Aroma: not so much only some roast and dark chocolate. However the taste is a very nice combination of sweetness and bitterness. Also a little sour. Full body and very smooth. Overall nice!

(bottle) clear deep ruby colour with a compact beige head. aroma of dark fruit, caramel and nettles, slightly soapy, with a ligfht hint of walnuts, some roasted malts and banana skins. flavour is mostly roasted malts, toffee and bread dough, with some notes of herbal hops, more dark fruit, bubble gum and a touch of alcohol in the semi-dry finish. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

Moravius (1001) - Beijing, CHINA - APR 21, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) von Getränke Frizzz, Regensburg. - Tiefstes Kastanienbraun, klar (soweit erkennbar). - In der Nase schwarzer Kaffee, Pflaume, leicht weinige Noten, dicht aber vornehm und keinesfalls fuselig. - Antrunk gediegen röstmalzig mit (wenig) Rohrzucker, Pflaumenmus und einem Touch spritziger Säure. Für einen Doppelbock gut rezent - etwas weniger Kohlensäure würde ihm guttun. Im Abgang mehr füllige Malzsüße und mild krautige Herbe, die gerade ausreicht, um die Malzfülle zu grundieren. Den Alkohol schmeckt man kaum. - Schöner Doppelbock, sehr rund und gediegen, weder breit noch fuselig; für einen Doppelbock beinahe schlank. Gelungen.

MartinT (8957) - 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.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 3, 2014
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 (7113) - 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!
