GABF 2002: About average. Fairly thin bodied for the style, but still good clean, malt flavour throughout.

Deep Amber brown Color. Slightly sweet, strong malt aroma with alcohol undertones. Smokey malt flavor with alcohol undertones, similar to whiskey.

One of the best beers Sam Adams makes. Very smooth with an aroma not unlike Spaten Optimator. Relatively sweet, at least enough to mask the alcohol. Lots of caramel flavor and feel with a hint of roasted barley. A very respectable brew.

I was very amazed how good this was. I have to admit i wasnt expecting much from an American Dopplebock, but this was a nice suprise.

This is pretty good stuff, especially for the price. My mistake was thinking that the Triple Bock would be a stronger continuation of this, too bad that it isnt.

Great on tap if you can find it. Very strong tones of malt and carmel but not overpowering.

Full bodied, sweet malty aroma, sweet syrupy caramel taste.

very nice for a contract brew no wonder this beer sells out so quickly when released. buy some and let it sit a few months and it really turns out nice

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2002
Smells of toffee, caramel, alcohol, sugary maple, and maybe a bit of oak...basically an ideal dopplebock aroma. Creamy texture, almost syrupy. Silky malts, appropriate carbonation, excellent balance. Wonderful earthy hops come into play as it warms to cellar temperature. Tart, slightly dry finish. By far the best Sam Adams that Ive ever had, and I wish that Id bought more than one.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2004 this was great stuff. Im not a big bock drinker, but they didnt overdo it. Has a very unique taste, and I like that about a beer. Medium body, small foamy head that disappears in a few minutes, almost a brownish red colored beer. A bit of metallic sharpness dulls the flavor and there seems to be a bit of cloying sweetness at the end.
