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.
