COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Double Bock is brewed with a half pound of malt in each bottle, almost enough for a loaf of bread. This rich intense, lager reveals a deep mahogany color and velvety smooth flavor. Samuel Adams Double Bock is one of our most sought after brews. Enjoy!

Bottle. Pours a dark red brown color. Smells like a big bag of roasted grain with a litte coffee note. Tastes sweet, and roasted.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Dark reddish copper color with an ok beige head. Aroma of roasted caramel. Full bodied with mild but sharpish carbonation. It’s rather sweet, progresses to roasted malt, shows a mild touch of coffee, has touches of likely noble hop. Heat is very well hiddden. Finishes towards dry/astringent with something like chocolate coating the mouth. It’s a variable beast. I think they have a good beer here.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2009
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, light dark ripe fruits, caramel, light alcohol, molasses, slight raisins, and malts. Poured copper/amber in color with a small, beige head that lasted around the edges. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of caramel, alcohol, slight salt, light astringent, malts, slight spiced yeast, and some vegetables. Medium body. Syrupy texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, astringent, alcoholic, caramel finish is cloying and off-putting.

jstraw (1936) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Dark amber with fair, creamy tan head / Toasty, brown sugar nose / Medium, chewy, body, syrupy and sweet, with good balance and finish / Big flavors of molasses and brown sugar, with notes of raisins and roast malt / Typical simple Sam Adams flavors, but well made.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Dark honey pour with a small creamy eggshell head. Aroma is brown sugar, caramel, and cocoa. Nice smoky sweetness that exhibits lightly toasted marshmellow, milk chocolate, and raisin. Alcohol isn’t at all overwhelming...actually really enjoyed this one. Let your buddies try this and watch them tip over one-by-one.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Mahogany pour with a bright ruby highlight and a quickly fading, fizzy, tan head. Lots of over ripe dark fruit aroma with toasted caramel and cocoa notes. There’s also a faint metallic and vegetal twang mixed with some notable alcohol. The flavor has pretty much all the same characteristics as the aroma but with a soft smokiness throughout. Sticky, medium body with lots of carbonation and a strong alcohol warming.

Strykzone (5042) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Cola colored and clear beer with a nice creamy tan head that lasts a couple of minutes. Aroma is not big and offers a lot of caramel. Flavor is somewhat medicinal with a big alcohol profile and a ton of caramel malt. Just a bit of smoke and, again, cough syrup. Big alcohol, big mouth of malt but disappointing.

Slipstream (2061) - USA - MAR 16, 2009
Half pound of malt in each bottle according to the label. For some reason this seems to score a little lower than their regular double bock. No head. Honey malt aroma. This is a sweet, strong ale with a tingling hop presence, and some Belgian flavor too. The high ABV is not that noticeable. Sam Adams IDB is a good strong bock.

brown sugar, dark fruits, roast, chocolate. Flavor is malt, yeast, dark fruits. Some alcohol finish. Kinf od let down with this one.
