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!

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2009 I suspect this is the same beer as the Double Bock which has more reviews. My bottle says "Imperial" and 9.5% so I put it here. Clear mahogany color, decent head. This is a looker. I also like the rich (almost syrupy) texture and soft carbonation. For me, though, it’s a bit too hot. Very malty, (molasses and cherries) and enough hops to balance it. But that booze comes through, both in peppery flavor and a slight burn down the throat. Not my taste in doppelbocks, but you can’t say they chintzed on the grains. Re-Rate 7 months later: same 4-pack with a bit more age tastes better, less alcohol burn, prominent cocoa flavor. Up from 3.1 to 3.4.

Not too bad at all. Has a decent deep red/brown color. Aroma is a sweeter malty scent with with some fruity scents. Also has a faint alcohol type of scent, I’m not sure how to explain it (and yes, I know there’s alcohol in here). Sweet fruity taste that is very smooth. No bite at all in the aftertaste. Good job guys.

12 oz bottle. Poured deep amber in color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, light fruit, and toffee. Tastes of caramel, toffee, sweet fruits, and brown sugar. Hid the 9.5% pretty well. Not bad.

Deep rusty brown copper body with a light yellowish khaki head. The aroma was rich caramel and iced tea. There was also a strong peach note. The taste is iced tea and toffee. Deep with woody notes and tobacco. This is malt and alcohol bomb for me. The burnt sugar character just got worse and worse throughout the glass.

Aurelius (4445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Sweetish, pruney aroma, though muted. Clear, deep red-brown with a thin, lightly tinged whitish head. Fair label. Good, for a bock. Grainy bitterness, toasty malt, raisins. A little astringent, medium-long tangy finish with alcohol vapors. Slightly heavy-bodied. Gets smoother as you get into it. Another good offering from Sam. MSL, $2.50/bottle.

Bottle shared by Robert at SL. This bottle was at home. Poured into a snifter. Dark red in color, ok head. Malty sugar aroma. Taste is malty, brown sugar, chocolate a little fruity. Average texture, alcohol was hidden well. Overall just a little too sweet for my liking..

Reddish pour with an off white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and fruit. Flavor is carame, fruit, yet significantly less sweeter than last years. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Overall, much less sweet, tasty, awesome beer.

Drake (9264) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2009
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Alraomon. Thanks! Pours a reddish copper color with a thin head. Poor head retention and fair lacing. Very malty aroma with notes of caramel, toffee, toasted malts, fruit and hops. Taste is EXTREMELY malty... tons of toffee, brown sugar and dark fruits. Full bodied and quite sticky in texture.

Pours a copper color with a tan head. Aroma is sweet with caramel malts, dark fruits, slight alcohol as well. Flavor is of caramel and toffee malts, with some dark fruits. Finishes with just a little bit of some warming.

Bottle thanks to Robert again... Poured a dark brown color with white head. Aroma is roasted malt, and caramel. Taste was caramel, chocolate, and alcohol. Texture was very thick, almost could chew his beer. Solid brew, not bad at all.
