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!

A - Pours a dark amber. A yellowish brown 2 finger head with good retention. Spotted lines of lacing left behind. S - Roasted crystal malt. Earthy bread covered in maple syrup. Cherry alcohol. T - Wow. Much more going on with the flavor. Chocolate and dark fruits-cherry and plum, rich caramel, and molasses. This one packs a punch in every category. The flavors are elevated and adventurous. A bold and complex Dopplebock that is challenging to pick apart. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this. For some reason Iíve passed this up so many times. I had no idea it would be this good. Donít pass this one up! We need more Dopplebocks like this in the States. Serving type: bottle 09-29-2010

Bottle from On the Fly Gasmart. Clear brown pour with medium foamy beige head. Very sweet malty aroma, tree nuts, wood, peat. Taste increases the sweetness, slick, almost syrupy feel. Slightly woody, bitter finish.

Pours a dark mahogany with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is lots of caramel malts, booze, and bread. Flavor is sweet caramel, lots of caramel, and some booze. I am very pleased with this one.

From the tap at Hop Yard Raleigh NC. Delicious representation of the style. Great depth of flavor especially when slightly chilled. Bready, warming, malty goodness. If you are a dbock fan, you can't go wrong with this one.

ttoadee (1076) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Hazy metallic amber pour, full and frothy tan head. Nose is malt...yeah, malt. Bittersweet. Middle is toffee, and deep malt sweetness. Finish shows pleasant mild hop bitterness, controlled by malt sweetness. Some of the German ones may be more subtle, but this is a solid Doppelbock.

Wow, from the 2015 edition bottle, this pours an an absolutely beautiful beer. Perfect dopplebock reddish mahogany color, with vibrant lacing and a soft pillowy head (it just looks worthy of such deScriptive adjectives). Aroma is distinctive in a positive way, features standard rich malty and red fruit notes, but also some grassy noble hoppiness, also a hint of dark chocolate. Flawless so far. At first sip, a little tart but not too much, maltiness isn't as overwhelming as expected. Complex layers follow one another, first malt, then slight noble hops, then a chocolate cocoa finish. Pleasantly surprised at the minimal booziness. Warming indeed, though the palate doesn't betray the high ABV. Mouthfeel is full and smooth, "velvety" as the bottle claims. I am thoroughly impressed. I think this is truly the best dopplebock I have ever had, although the flavor intensity could use a small boost. Nonetheless, an excellent variation of the style, I especially appreciate the hoppiness that seems to be rare in most doppelbocks. Try it!!!

alexsdad06 (7435) - Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2015
12 oz. bottle from notes ( I had all 3 as soon as they got off the truck at Jungle Jimís upon original release). Pours a clear deep amber color with a small fizzy disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malts with some dark fruity notes. The flavor is heavy on malts, caramel, dark fruits. Medium bodied, a little on the syrupy side. Decent.

tekstr1der (218) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Amber pour with thin tan head - doesnít look as appealing as itís about to be... aromas of bread and caramel. Much the same comes across the tongue. A sweet finish makes this just right.
