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!

Draft - Poured a beautiful burgundy with a smooth head that disappeared too quickly. Nice flavor without the Sam Adams dark beer after taste. I could drink this one regularly.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2009
Pours rich chestnut brown, perhaps a very dark amber. Light brown head is generous and retains well. Nose is muted but still carries a detectable caramel, toffee, and toasty/roasty malt. Palate is caramel malt, toffee that isn’t overly sweet, and coats the palate with a nice full bodied presence but isn’t too syrupy like other styles (IRS, for example). Some alcohol warmth on the finish, as is typical for the style. Exceptionally drinkable. Enjoy cold, as they do in Germany for this style.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Aroma is of dark chocolate with a light lactose, creamy aspect. The full pour brings out a lot of sweetness. The taste matches with unabashed but well balanced sweetness. Pour is a vibrant red with brown tint and a thin coating of fizzy head.

RSRIZZO (1960) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Color is a rich amber with good carbonation and a tight off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet and rich. Starting with a bold medium body it goes down with a rich feel. Finish comes in sweet with flavors chocolate covered raisins a little caramel and a coffee like bitterness. After taste rolls off smooth with a hint of smoke and a warm alcohol feel. This is a great Doppelbock and as it warms up a bit the flavors melt together and become more complex.

Pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma has hints of coffee and sweet malty goodness. Flavor is much sweeter than I expected. Oh wow. Definite coffee notes. Sweet and bitter and cream and delicious. This is fantastic.

poisoneddwarf (2297) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Sam Adams tasting at Enoteca in Post Falls, Idaho. Sample from 12 oz bottle into Sam Adams glass. Aroma is very alcoholic, strong in caramel malt. Smells a bit like cinnamon raisin toast. Pours amber with a thick head and creamy lace. Malty sweet with a nice alcoholic finish that warms the gut. Carbonation is low, texture is oily. Good.

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.

ludhaber (105) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2012
As promised, this beer is very malty. Huge body and decent hop balance. A little more complexity in the malt would make this beer really high on my list.

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.
