If you like malts, itís hard to get much maltier than this. It winds up very sweet, almost too much by the end of the bottle, so stick to one. I would recommend this one although it will be overkill if youíre not fond of malt to the extreme.

Leathery copper in color. Thin soapy head. Strong toffee aroma. Sweet malt flavor notes. Some caramel and more toffee flavors with a clean finish. Overall, a decent brew...

Poured from 22oz bottle into tulip. Big tan four finger head. Beer is clear and ruby in color when held up to light. Aroma is malty with notes of bread, cereal and yeast. Taste is lightly sweet and malty with notes of bread and yeast. Beer is full bodied, sticky textured and average carbonation with a long finish. Overall this is a good beer. Havenít had many bocks, and certainly not recently, therefor it is difficult for me to compare to others of the style.

Good beer but more on the boosie side than malty, nice head and color, caramel and string alcohol taste overall good but not outstanding in my opinion, also not too heavy

UrbanCaveman (131) - Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2015
22 oz bottle, poured into a tulip at approximately 45 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a deep, rich, clear mahogany red-amber, and forms a massive, fluffy head of tawny beige foam. Lacing is present and impressive. The bottom of the glass lines with large bubbles, and sheets of tiny bubbles rise continuously. Smell: Heavy caramel malt swirls out of the glass, thick with the scent of fresh bread as well. Thereís a toffee presence in the aroma, and something vaguely leathery. Taste: As predicted from the smell, this is heavy on the caramel and toffee malt flavors, from the opening all the way through the finish. Thereís a breadiness in the background as well, alongside a rather sharp, metallic iron sort of taste. By the finish, that metallic note intensifies, turning dry and sharp, and thereís an odd lingering intense bitter toffee aftertaste. Not much going on in the way of any fruits, though there is a vague sort of walnut tone that manifests through the middle. Mouthfeel: Initially somewhat creamy and sticky, this breaks down at the end to leave a watery finish. Overall: Not a bad go at a doppelbock from a US brewer! It stays solidly in the malt flavor wheelhouse, and comes decently close on mouthfeel. Itís not my favorite doppelbock, nor even my favorite US attempt, but itís a solid beer.

Caramel, bread, fruit, alcohol, caramel, malt. Pours a clear darkish brown color with a nice thick white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, fruit, bread, metallic, booze. Taste is fruit, intense malt, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, sweet, bread, alcohol finish. Great double bock, better than most for the style in my opinion.

Clear brown with an orangish tan head. Aroma is caramel, bread. Sweet, very smooth, almost no bitterness. A little alcohol burn in the finish due to the strength. Not bad.

22 ounce bottle. Very dark red, frothy head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is bready and a bit smoky. Sweetness typical of a double bock. Malty. Not much else going on. Enjoyable enough because I like the style, but not a favorite.

Stuedmaster (295) - Vista, California, USA - DEC 30, 2014
22 oz. bottle from La Bota Liquor in Vista for $5.99. Label has a weathered tan appearance with a drawing of a goat on it. Alcohol is 9.5% abv. Aroma of dark bread, caramel, molasses, slight mineral notes. Reddish brown pour with a nice creamy head that leaves thick lacing. Very sweet with a strong alcohol presence, almost syrupy. Slight metallic taste. Has some dark fruits and caramel, but overall very sweet, the alcohol and metallic presence detract from the experience. Full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, long sweet finish.

ryanfolty (2007) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2014
December 24, 2014 - bottle from MGM. Brown pour with some head and minimal lacing. Aroma was fruity, caramel, yeast and some alcohol. Taste was dominated by the alcohol. There was some yeast / bread in the background throughout and the sweeness from the fruit and caramel came out in the finish with a sharp dry alcohol. Wish the alcohol was hidden a bit better and this would have been really good.

winto (34) - Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2014
nose: banana bread with pecans and all, rum, the yeast gets a bit sickly if you ponder too long. palate: gorgeously textured. holy @#$%. liquid bread with thick gooey bubbles! too complex to even begin describing. all on the nutty bready caramelly alcoholly sweet side but oh so much more...and thatís my only complaint: itís way too sweet for my taste. i feel like im gonna wake 5lbs heavier tomorrow. if you donít mind then go for it.
