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!

Tasted from a bottle at the BA Decadence 07 release today. Pours reddish with a tan head. Nose is sweet with some malts. Taste is sweet and overall ok, but some par.

17thfloor (2435) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle labeled "Imperial Series Double Bock" 9.5%. Pours a very clear but darker glowing copper color with a fine fizzy beige head that fades quickly. Very sweet roasty aroma, raisins and toffee, slight grassy. Very sweet without any of the dark roasty qualities I want in a doppelbock. Sugary smooth body that is dull in the mouth with soft very large carbonation. Very hot, too much alcohol, quite boozy without any indication of cohesion. Syrupy feeling left in the mouth. Not much in the way of smoky, chocolate or coffee flavors. Maybe a bit of chocolate is buried under the hard alcohol. Hard to swallow. The initial flavor isnít too bad, however, the aftertaste makes one gag. Holy hell that medicinal finish/aftertaste is horrid. Another reason why craft beer should be produced by craft breweries.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2009
12 oz bottle purchased from Frugal MacDoogalís in Nashville. Poured a deep amber color with a one finger tan head. The aroma was caramel malt, roasted malt and nuts. The flavor was sweet, with a light earthy hop finish. This was an average beer.

12 o bottle - Pours a medium deep red color with a smallish light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is full of slightly toasted caramel, bit nutty, notes of lime zest, faint milk chocolate, touch of oak. Flavor has chewy malts, toastyness, caramel, raisens, toasted oak. Finish is balanced just on the sweet side. Overall a decent brew. Nothing earthshattering, but good for the style.

JaBier (5160) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Sampled at the Sam Adams tasting at Blacklick Wine and Spirits on 3.5.09. Pours clear medium brown with a medium tan head. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of nuts. Malty flavor with some alcohol and not much else going on. Not bad, but pretty boring and kind of a letdown.

ben4321 (4451) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Location: Picked up a 12 oz. bottle at Gillyís, drank it 3/9/09

Aroma: Malty, smoky, coffee scents
Appearance: Light brown/maroon looking color.
Flavor: Nice malty sweetness dominates the alcohol and hops
Palate: Fully body, long finish
Overall Impression: Iím going to totally disagree with anyone who says that the alcohol dominates, I felt that way about the Imperial White, but not this one. I thought the malts were the strongest flavor by far, and I enjoyed this one. I actually thought the smoothness of it was impressive based on the high ABV, and the alcohol taste didnít ruin it at all, but for me, enhanced it. Itís really a nice beer, probably the best Doppelbock I can remember outside of the Celebrator...

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAR 8, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2011 12 oz bottle from Freddy. Pours a translucent brown with a fine beige head that has fair retention and some lacing. The aroma is moderate in strength with dark fruits, brown sugar, anise and roasted malts. The flavor mirrors the aroma with soft black licorice and brown sugar dominating. The mouthfeel is smooth and light with soft carbonation. The finish is long with lingering anise. Overall: Very good dopplebock.
