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!

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2009
Rating #100 for this. Poured crystal-clear coppery-amber with a short, tight-bubbled cap of beige head. The aroma picked up deeper, toasted caramel and chocolate notes with herbal, medicinal, and smoky accents surrounding.. warm on the back. The flavor opened with a strong, alcohol-fueled, almost sour smoky impression with molasses and chocolate rolling in afterward.. drier and grainy on the back with more smoky notes, grainy notes, and warmth. Medium-bodied and rather hot on the palate with decent carbonation.. all in all kinda dissapointing.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2009
Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of rich sweet caramely malt with some noble hops and some light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and toasty dark caramel sweetness along with a touch of brown sugar and light fruity complexity with a good amount of bitterness for balance. A pretty true to style and enjoyable doppelbock that should age well.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Pours a striking clear amber with short lived tan head. The aroma is sweet sticky malts that blend into mild dark fruity esters and just noticeable caramel candy notes. The taste is fairly thick and smooth and modestly rich with notes of sweet crystal malts, sweet malts and an increasing level of rich sweet dark fruity esters notes like plum, prune, raisins and a bit of ripe cherries. Like the nose a sense of caramel carries on deep in the background. Very tasty brew.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle at tasting, pours a cloudy orangey amber with a big beige head. Aroma of fudge upfront, caramel malts, toffee and candied fruits. Flavour of fudge, chocolate malt, toasted bread, caramel and dark fruits. Quite a thick palate with rich flavours. Very nice.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle. Clear copper penny colour, light tan head. Aroma is caramel malts with fruity and boozy notes threatening domination. Sweet malty palate, but not enough bread or toast to make me happy, it’s mostly fruity caramel that just isn’t all that yummy. Warm finish.

deyholla (6974) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle thanks to Roonai. Pours a clear brown with a red hue and an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of toffee, caramel and sweet grains and a bit of backing alcohol. Flavor is sweet with grains, toffee and caramel wit a decent amount of alcohol in the finish.

BVery (6964) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Somewhat opaque brown orange pour with a minimal head. Terrific aroma of caramel malt and bread. Smooth palate. Taste is also caramel malt. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent brew.

DrSilverworm (6944) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear red / brown color. Little off-white / khaki head. Lightly smokey toasty malts. Caramel. Little sweet taste, some bitter. Good, smooth lighter carbonation. Little dark fruit aroma. Not much alcohol taste for 9.5 ABV, that’s a plus.

Bottle. Ruby-brown beer with a tiny tan head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with light fruitiness. Sweet, rich toffee flavor with light earth and light dark fruitiness. Medium-plus bodied. Sweet caramel malt lingers with some earthiness.
