COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Doppel Bock style of beer ranges from the round to the profound to the enveloping. In describing Bock beer, the term "single" Bock is never used. Just Bock. Nor is a Double Bock twice as strong. "Double" Bock is a very unGerman exaggeration. "Super Bock" might be a bit more accurate. Clearly, when this style was first developed, the idea was to exceed what had previously been the strongest type of beer.
This was finally achieved by the monks of St. Francis of Paula, who probably first made beer as "liquid bread" to be consumed at the time of Lent.
Ingredients: Pale 2 Row, Munich, Caramel, Cara Pilsner and Black malts, domestic Mt. Hood, Cascade and Centennial hops.
Available January through March.

A well balanced doppel bock. An appetizing hop and malt aroma. Smooth syrupy body with a dry hoppy finish.

This ’Doppel Bock’ does not have the ’teeth’ of most dopple bocks I have had, but it is stil a kick-ass litte beer.

(bottle) Pours a reddish-brown with a creamy head. Crystal clear. Immediate & long-lasting sweet malty taste with a slight amount of hopping that kicks in after a second or two. This is probably the easiest doppelbock to put away quickly that I've ever experienced. No clue that the alcohol content is so high until it's too late--very well masked. POW! Who just hit me between the eyes with a mallet? This holds its own with almost any of the more expensive doppelbocks, imported or domestic...

Not bad - it comes on pretty strong with some winey notes in the intense malt, but if you can stomach such high pitched advocacy, it settles into a round, robust, smokey goodness.

This has a terribly nice aroma and a fantastic blend of Germanic spicy hops and sweet, clean malt. The flavor is rather sweet, not a ton of depth or complexity, but extremely tasty. I really like this a lot. Thanks a lot, Slikwily.

Doppel meaning double not single and yet not dubbel nor trippel, that of the liquid bread this, the task fo the monks of Saint Francis of Paula, sweet and profound, I do bend on one knee to thee.

Reddish brown. Big powerful maltiness. Complex. Rather bitter finish. A nice doppelbock.

Sampled this back-to-back with their regular bock. Wasn’t quite the step up in strength that I had expected. The chocolatey taste was a little bit more pronounced and the mouthfeel was more satisfyingly thick.

Color is a dark amber glow with a huge foamy tan head thats nearly three fingers high. Has a nice sweet bread-like malt like cookie dough and has some bright hops, very fresh. Taste is a fairly sweet and somewhat chewy malt, thin syrupy feel with a nice underlying of hop dryness. Feel is mediumd bodied, fresh and clean, slightly syrupy and very smooth. This is one drinkable beer, goes down smooth and has a good, golden fresh flavor thats just great and goes down with ease.
