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!

A nice but overly sweet doppelbock. Aroma was OK. LIght malt and caramel. Pour was a nice dark red with a one finger off white head. Taste was sugary sweet with a hint of caramel in the aftertaste. Nice carbonation with a bisucity aftertaste.

Bottle pour. It says on the back of the bottle that a 1/2 pound of yeast goes into each bottle of this beer- and boy, does that flavour come through! Lots of yeast, lots of malt, a very "heavy in the belly" beer. Not worth the price, but glad I tried it once.

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

Indra (2689) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 29, 2009
12oz. bottle. Full-on malty aroma, sweet and sugary with plenty of dark, nearly burnt caramel, and lighter notes of licorice, maple, herbal hop and faint alcohol. Deep red-brown color, clear, with a very slight head. Flavor is powerfully sweet throughout, almost overwhelmingly so, dripping with dark sugary malts, all semblance of balance lost, with only a touch of chocolate, hazelnut and a tad of bitterness very late to help the cause. Lingering medicinal alcohol, perhaps a bit of hop spice here and there. Smooth, sticky palate, body is as full as can be. The standard Double Bock is much better; this is a mess. I even went into this expecting a somewhat sweet, cloying type of brew and was still disappointed.

Alphadelic (1866) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Deep chestnut which develops something of a chill haze. The aroma is very sweet and full of sickly marzipan and yeast. It is rich and fruity in the mouth with a boozy heat. I donít pick up up on any of the above mentioned smoky, chocolate or coffee aromas Iím afraid. This is a funky, fruity ale of which Iím not the biggest fan.

Brownish Amber. No head. Big caramel and sugar in the nose. Some alcohol and brown sugar. Maple all around. Flavor is similar. Way too much malt. Syrupy and cloying. Too much and too heavy. Hard to finish.

heemer77 (5156) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Deep rusty brown copper body with a light yellowish khaki head. The aroma was rich caramel and iced tea. There was also a strong peach note. The taste is iced tea and toffee. Deep with woody notes and tobacco. This is malt and alcohol bomb for me. The burnt sugar character just got worse and worse throughout the glass.

Pours light brown with a thin tan head. Smells of molasses, fruit, vegetables. Tastes overly sweet and unbalanced. Not what I was hoping for.

I wasnít overly impressed with this beer. It did have a smooth flavor and a nice warming effect. Itís a nice drink for a cold winter night.
