COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Wow, what a pretty looking beer. Not much of a head, but a nice maple color. For lack of a better word, it had a woody taste. Smooth finish, and definitely a beer I would have again

The aroma was of carmel and coffee with a roasted quality that lingers in the nose. The color was a dark brown that was clear with very little head but excellent lacing Taste was med sweet, with light bitter tones, hardly bitter at all. The body was medium, mildly creamy, medium carbonation that had a long finish. Overall I liked this, not as in your face as some dopple bocks as I’ve had but very drinkable. I’ll buy this one again. I had this with a veggie ravioli with a butter garlic, cashew sauce, and a chicken ragu. This paiored wonderfully with a meal. Might be under powered for some but a good selection none the less.

Hot alcohol taste and bite. Not smooth. Hardly any rich malt character. Dark fruit. Not good representation of style and not enjoyable

Great malty beer. Nice dark color and head. Very much like a piece of dark bread. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Aroma of bread and alcohol dominates; very difficult to sense much else. Appearance is a dark chocolate brown, with little lacing and a small (one-finger) head. Taste is primarily alcohol (it starts rather astringently) and -then- the malty, bready goodness I look for in a doppelbock, a little unexpected and while not unpleasant, not what I was hoping for. Other flavors that come through very, very late are small amounts of toastiness, a little caramel, and a little chocolate. Moderately heavy on the palate, has a good weightiness to it that I like but the alcohol seems to erode that a bit. Overall, not the worst I’ve had from Sam Adams, but far from the best. It’s just a little too high on the ABV scale, and the other flavors I would expect in a doppelbock just don’t seem to come through like I’d like.

Changing this offering from one of their seasonal to their new Imperial label has been more than just a re-hash of an old brew. Strong caramel and fruity nose, rapidly thinning head will leave a nice lace eventually after joyfully lingering over this complex brew. Increase in ABV is readily noticeable.

pours a redish brown with not much head at all. aromas of bread molasses and alcohol. A little sweet taste and after taste. Hard to describe

Style: Double Bock Color: Dark Honey Taste: slightly sweet, oddly light, malty, dry finish Comment: Overall it's not a bad beer, but it is just missing something. However, in their defense I did just have the Ayinger Brewery Double Bock which is out of this world... This Bock is more like Houston, there are worse places to be but I am never sure where I am.

To begin, I’m a lover of ales, hoppy IPA’s and spicy wits. That said. This is probably one of the best bottles of beer I’ve ever sat down and enjoyed. Dark, creamy, malty, sweet, fruity, rich, the healthy ABV sneaks up and reminds you its a winter warmer not a tailgater, but soooo smooth for a serious winter beer. Made me want to go out and buy a Heath bar. So rich and decadent, there’s a good reason its sold in 4 packs

Nose is metallic. not pleasing to me. orange brown with some red tint. Not as dark as I would expect. Lots of fine carbonation. Nicely balanced flavors. substantial feel in the mouth, somewhat thick.
