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!

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Pours mahogany with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, and dark fruit. Taste is of Nyquil, fruit, malt, and chocolate. What the hell is wrong with this beer? It tastes like horrid cough syrup and cheap malt. It pours nice and smells nice, but it tastes awful. Ok, after several sips, the horrid Nyquil taste settled. Though it never fully went away. Small notions of malt, chocolate, and caramel. Mouthfeel is extremely light and very gritty. They slapped in a ton of alcohol and slapped on a bigger price tag. Just plain poor.

kidmartinek (3536) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2009
An unimpressive appearance. The beer looks clear brown like any lager bock and pours with a weak head which is boring and settles to no head before the second sip. Heavy caramel malts and sugars in the aroma. Its the same problem with any bock. A candy beer for the kids. Malt, sugar, and caramel. Do you want beer or do you want candy? kidz? A hint of extra alcohol is present in the aroma and the flavor and this doesn’t help to make the beer more attractive. Fortunately, its good for the style. Unfortunately, in the realm of beers, the style... well, you know.

DBob5150 (189) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Dark amber color with a nice tan head. Carmel aroma with hints of coffee. Taste is crisp with a bit of a medical aftertaste. Overall not bad, definitely a sipping brew, not to be rushed.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle at The Flying Horse, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is thick and sweet, almost sticky. Pours a dark amber with a high white foam. Taste is sour and very sweet, no bitterness at all. Mouthfeel is almost sticky, not at all pleasant.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2009
12 oz bottle thanks to 17th Floor. Pours a clear dark red brown with a beige creamy head that quickly fades to a ring. Malty bock aroma - roasted, toffee, caramel, brown sugar. Thin but syruppy body. Odd flavors are a mess - Syruppy sweet charred bitter caramel so many flavors that are not going together. Mostly its that overly sweet syruppy malt that becomes roasty and hot alcohol almost spicy in the finish. Ah, that’s enough rating, I can pour this one down the drain.

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark red-copper with a thin, foamy, clingy tan head. Taste is of alcohol, caramel, fruit and malt. Very sweet. Aroma of alcohol, caramel and malt. Weak in both flavor and aroma. Slightly better as it warms. Not that impressive. I am glad the four pack I got was on sale for $5.40. Might be one to store and see if the flavor improves.

cheap (3966) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 Nice thin creamy head. Friendly yeasty aroma. Strong bock initial flavors. Alky is certainly apparent. Decent carbonation. Color is orange red brown. Medicinal coarse alky laced finish.
