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!

Pours a dark mahogany/amber red; like a glass of wine even. Head is minimum. Flavor is dominated by a strong presence of alcohol, that tingles the palate. The taste is true to the Adams brand; different, not like others but just as good and even better. Would Recommend.

yackery (161) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2011 12oz bottle. One-finger head that lingers atop yet five minutes later with comparable and complimentary lacing. The aroma is impressively very roasty recalling chocolate coffee in a metal pot but mostly coffee in a metal pot. That’s definitely better than it sounds. The appearance is a beautiful, amber lava, seriously red and glowing appealingly. The taste is a little bitter and salty and a little sweet. And a little meaty carrying the nose most excellently. The palate is full body with perfectly lively carbonation and a satisfying finish.

Very dark appearance amber color with minimal tan head. Very strong malty aroma. Very smooth taste that is complex. Very malty and roasty with a strong roasty finish that lingers. Another excellent different beer from a great brewery.

Amber with yellowish head. Aroma is caramel,malt, molasses and a hint of roast chocolate. Flavor was the same savory and peppery.

Poured from Bottle into Pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy deep copper with a finger of creamy khaki-colored head that slowly dissolves into a medium sized ring around the glass. The aroma is heavy with toffee with some caramel, smoke and booze. Tastes of toasted malts, light whiskey, peat and some burnt caramel. Its a medium bodied beer that is syrupy and hints of carbonation. I am actually pretty surprised at how much I liked this beer. I didn’t expect too much from this and got so much in return. That said, it is a bit hot in the finish.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle poured into the ol’ dimpled mug. Beautiful dark brown color, crimson notes, murky, thick pale brown head. Awesome aroma....malt, pumpernickel bread, sugar cookie, gingerbread, molasses, hint of fig/raisins, alcohol. Very nice and complex, nose reminds me of a fine Belgian Christmas strong ale. As does the taste! Oily and slick going down with a great warming effect from the 9.5%. Flavor notes of heavy caramel, more dark fruits and a great sticky, bittersweet finish. Excellent brew.

CJfromPhilly (140) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Pours from the 12oz. bottle a iced-tea-ish brown with a small, tan head that quickly settles into a modest collar. There’s quite a few bubbles rising to the top. Aroma is sweet, vanilla-ish and kind of syrupy. 1st sip is a big, bold hit of malty sweetness, with overtones of vanilla and alcohol. There’s a slight alcohol burning & harshness on the swallow that cuts down on the drinkability. This is NOT a session beer, unless you goal is to get passed-out-on-the-floor drunk. But is is a good after work or after dinner sipper. Overall, a good, big, tasty beer to finish off your day. Leaves me wanting to try the rest of the Imperial series!

Reddish brown pour with a creamy white head. Taste is malty with nary a hop to be found. The high alcohol is hidden well. I found this to be a fine beer, one of my favorites from Sam Adams, and I welcome this readily available, high alcohol offering from this brewer.

Bottle. Deep amber color with almost no head. Aroma is heavy on molasses with a bit of syrup and grain. Taste matches the aroma. Sweet and thick with a smooth and warming finish and a nice lingering flavor.

7-5-7-4-17 Light malty aroma that does not indicate how big this beer is. Body is thick amber brown, not cloudy, but smoothly thick and full so you can’t see through it. Taste is full on malt assault, thick with a light bitter finish. Warming and slightly alcoholic at the end of the sip. Very thick bready aftertaste. Very good. So thick and heavy, it is one for an occasion rather than an anyday beer. Would buy again.
