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!

Chocolate and malt aromas. Smooth and balanced. Still a far cry from the true European Double Bocks, but a nice American Seasonal. Not sure if it was worth the $11 for a 4 pack but I figured I’d give it a shot.

Being that doppel is my fav style, I ecided to rate this style first-The fairly new Sam Adams Imperial....what a disappointment, way too much sugar. Everything looked good and onsistent with other doppels with a nice brown color and thick tawny foam. Smells of mollasses?!?, malts, and some alcohol. Tastes of MOLASSES!!! roasted malt, lot more alcohol than expected, maybe even alittle choco-cherry(might be mistaken). Very thick syrupy sweet confusing pseudo-doppel

Brown in color. Malty aroma and flavor. Kind of a browned\burnt sugar flavor as it warms. Very little head and very light carbonation. Sweet, slightly bitter finish.

12 oz. Bottle. Slight white head. Pleasant smell. Beautiful color. Complex flavors but the alcohol content does not overpower it which is amazing. Highly recommended. Cheers!!!!

Sweet malt aroma. Hints of melanoidins. Pours red-brown with a moderate cream colored head that quickly dissipates. Rich and malty with alcoholic aftertaste. Some date-like flavors. While I repect the 9.5% abv, this is not on par with good traditional dopplebocks from Germany. It lacks the complexity and richness of those. Decent enough, but not great.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Brown with off white head. Light malt aroma. Roasted malt flavor with good balance. A little more carbonation than I prefer in a strong "sipping" brew. A good beer.

At the Doppelbock Width Tasting in Shachar’s house, thanks Oren, bottle, cloudy, fruity, pours dark amber almost without head, smoked aroma, and overall a good beer.

UriahHeep (105) - Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Pretty dark red-copper pour without much head. Quite an attractive appearance matched by an intoxicating roasted aroma of caramel, fine two-row barley, chewy toffee, chocolate and also some smokiness. Body has a beautiful malted barley presence and great backbone. Syrupy mouth. Distinct flavors such as coffee, chocolate, caramel and pepper. Sweet brown sugar notes. A bit of alcohol harshness surfaces at times but then is drowned beneath the tidal wave of roasted malt. Medium-length finish, warming from the high ABV. Still contains some Noble hop spiciness, but you’ll barely notice that in this brew.
