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!

Indra (2711) - 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.

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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 4, 2009
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.

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 (3336) - 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 isnít 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 (13601) - 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.

Rustyham (1807) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Weak flavor, but thick mouthfeel. Candiness that is a little gross. Thickness that adds to fake, incomplete brweing effect that I get from it. Plus itís a dark orangey red, when I feel that it should be a more dark brown color.

ScoWRee (404) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2009
IPours a dark brown, cola color, with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt. tatse of chocolate, caramel, malt. Alcohle taste is present. Candy tasting.This misses the mark
