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. Molasses and grape nose, brown sugar, toffee, and alcohol. Touch of red berry. Deep brown body with ruby overtones still lets light through, clinging tan head big on lace with even bigger legs. Taste initially very dry and crisp, molasses and lightly burnt brown sugar, touch of grape and muted grain. Light smoke and chocolate. Body is full and slurred, strong and warming but without over-the-top booze. A little distilled/grain alcohol, though, which I consider a major off-flavor. Slightly toasty, spice is almost hidden, but the feel is really smooth and chewy and, despite the desired complexity, the overall effect is calming and satisfying as the cooler temperatures set in.

emacgee (4457) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Pours a dark ruby copper with a thin light tan head. The nose is malty, vinous, bready, mild alcohol, some spicy hop notes, sweet, caramel. The flavor shows a spicy alcohol, caramel, rich chewy malt, tangible bitterness. The palate shows warming alcohol with a thick mouthfeel.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2009
This lager pours with a dark ruby color. Hard to get much out of the nose at all, perhaps a light note of wort, maple, fruit. Flavor actually has some nuance to it and a bit of depth. Notes of dried dark chocolate, roast, toffee and caramel. Nice finish as well. Respectable example of the style, but needs improvement.

Bottle, #462. Dark mahogany pour with small head and good lacing. Rich malty aroma and flavor. Bit of caramel and some fruity sweetness. Good brew.

I wasn’t overly impressed with this beer. It did have a smooth flavor and a nice warming effect. It’s a nice drink for a cold winter night.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Pours light brown with a thin tan head. Smells of molasses, fruit, vegetables. Tastes overly sweet and unbalanced. Not what I was hoping for.

notalush (5512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Pours a clear dark ruby, but fails to kick up much of a head - aroma of caramel, raisin, roasted nuts, strong maple syrup character, and a touch of alcohol on the tail end - very smooth and very malty, like any good doppel should be - the alcohol is very well-masked, too - both of these qualities make this one dangerous beer to drink (at 9.5%, it drinks as if it were no more than 7%) - a lot of caramel, raisin, date - light maple and a tiny hint of spicy character - it’s smooth, and has decent flavor, but it fails to stand out and/or deliver the complexity of the finer german examples of the style.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Poured a nice copper/amber color with almost no head. Aroma is sweet malt, some nuttiness, caramel, maple syrup. This was one gigantic malt bomb. Very sweet on the front end and sweet all the way through. Hid the alcohol well, and not cloying, but it was skating a thin line between tasty and overpowering.
