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!

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 wasn’t overly impressed with this beer. It did have a smooth flavor and a nice warming effect. It’s a nice drink for a cold winter night.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Pours a deep mahogany with a nice foamy head. Nose is of nothing but a very sweet malt. Very mallty with a large amount of nuttiness. It does have a mild burntness to it. Almost a brown sugar molasses type of sweetness with a littel bitterness at the end Overall not much to this.

Elwood (3079) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep amber brown with a creamy, light tan head. The head lingers leaving behind okay lacing. Notes of caramel, boozy fruit, and a little earth in the nose. Low carbonation with a sticky mouthfeel. Sweet, boozy taste, with hints of roasted malt, bread, and caramel. A cloying, sticky sweetness remains for awhile. The booze isn’t well hidden and there is a lot of sweetness. Best reserved for after dinner.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2009
Garnet-brown body with scant tan head. Aroma is hot, sweet, with some caramel and rum, but not particularly appealing. Palate is pretty sticky and thin. Tastes better than it smells. The bready malts come out but are easily overshadowed by booze and sugary sweetness. Was expecting much better.

Oakes (12429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2009
Beautiful bright mahogany. Not much head. Syrupy and vaguely nutty aroma. Sweet and simplistic, with only hints of brown bread buried under a relatively caramelly body. Probably a bit too sticky for me.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Had from 12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with slight tan head and good lacing. Aroma is heavy smoked malts, some coffee, and alcohol. Taste is alcohol, lots of malts, and a nice hop bite at the finish. A bit disappointing, had expected something a bit more complex and less medicinal.

HughConway (792) - Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours haxy brown, thin white head. Not much of an aroma, thick sweet malt on the tongue. Oddly put together version of the style, same as the stout.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 14, 2009
Pours a clear, coppery-amber with a one-finger tall, off-white head. Spotty flecks of lacing. The initial aroma is coconut and malt. As it opens up I get some toast and some light perfumy notes. Maybe some strawberry? Weird. Flavor has a medicinal, cough syrup quality to it. Light caramel too. Mouthfeel was thin yet oily and somehow it finished super dry. This thing was a mess.
