COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Der Schlägl "Doppel Bock", das ist der edle Biergenuss für eine besondere Zeit. Ein vollmundiges und kräftiges Starkbier mit ausgeprägter Hopfenbittere. Trotz seines Alkoholgehaltes erfrischend im Geschmack.

500. Pours a brilliantly clear dark gold with a big sudsy white head. Lots of nice stringy lace showing on the sides. Nose is somewhat musty, showing some egg whites, faint pepper corn, and probably some cardboard. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Pronounced pepper, egg, and cardboard notes on the mid palate. Long peppery finish. Had better.

Ernest (6597) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (bread, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with light notes of honey and metal. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic, slightly metallic. It has that characteristic malt aroma that could only come from Germany, Austria, or Czech Republic. It’s not the most clean or characterful example, admittedly, but it’s still solid for what it is...a strong pale bock.

500 ml. bottle. Pours a white short lived head, with some lacing, over a clear, dark golden (SRM 5-6) body.....nose is cereal, biscuit, toast, with some grass, and a bit of spice.....taste is light cereal (Grapenuts) to start, then light spicy hop bitterness arrives, relatively dry throughout, alcohol is lightly present....mouth feel is medium, carbonation adds a spritz to the experience. This meets the criteria for a pale Doppel Boch. It is very different from the more commonly available dark versions, and is the first one I have tasted. This is much more Pilsner like it its qualities, although the malt definitely dominates the hops. This is much cleaner and less cloying than dark versions, and the heavy malt flavors (dried fruits, heavy sugars) are absent. It is more refreshing and less nourishing. BJCP 6/3/13/5/7

50cl bottle. Small white head atop crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, some honey. Taste is moderately sweet, straw/grass, bread, some honey, pepper, light alcohol. Medium-full body, some stickiness. I think of this as a doppel heller bock, rather than a doppel bock -- not bad if you don’t expect caramel/dark fruitiness.

bhensonb (12138) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours rather brassy with a foamy white head. Aroma of malt with some strong grassiness. Medium plus body with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet caramel with a pretty good dose of bitter. Clearly too malty to be compared to an IPA, but I’m doing that anyway. Pretty good beer.

Man, I really needed a beer tonight. The kid was screaming with colic all night and, Leah is getting burnt out dealing with the kid all day without respite. It’s a tough situation right now, especially because I want to see the kid stimulated and given every opportunity. So, I cracked this extra received from Clint (scrizzz). Thanks! Pours like a a bud light... hm. Dopplebock? I think not. Aroma is banana, estery, sulphur, and sweet corn. Seriously, I think the color is affecting my flavor profile. More ester and sweet biscuit- probably contributing to the perception of corn. Taste is malty, sweet, biscuit, slightly watery, hints of bitterness and sulphur. Finish is sweet and simple. Bleh. How is this rated so high?

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
.5 liter bottle. Pours a honey golden with a nice fluffy white head- definitely should be heller-bock on ratebeer, but whatever. Aroma is fairly fresh big biscuit malts, honey, bready, dough, vienna toasted malts, some cracker. Flavor is light herbal, earth, big toasted malts, light honey sweetness, fresh bready pils and vienna with light carapils sweetness and body- easy drinking and pretty good maibock/hellerbock.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
500ml bottle (imported by Morandell imports Gardena, CA): Pours a transparent bright golden brass with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale malts with some floral noble hoppiness and a hint of sweet corn. Starts with decent fullness and an effervescent carbonation with a light sugary sweetness and some honey notes quickly giving way to an overly assertive noble hop bitterness with lingering earthy black peppery character and some alcoholic warmth. Doesn’t have any of the sweet dark caramel notes or complexity I expect in a doppelbock. This seems more like a malt liquor or a heller bock at best.

Geiserich (3618) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 29, 2008
Bottled (vinetage 2005): Orange color, cloudy, small creamy head. Intensive malty and sweet aroma. Fruit and candy notes, caramel, raisins and some alcohol. Flavor is full bodied, fruity and malty with candy and light rum-plums notes. Pleasant balanced, bitter and astringent finish.

renffisch (868) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2008
500ml bottle i had to beg for at the actual brewery since officially the bock-season was over. Nice people i have to say, thanks! And even better it was definitely worth it! Aroma of fresh appley malt, dark amber colour with a good head.Its sweet fresh, with a slightly salty bitter but definitely not unpleasant finish. Good, mouthwatering, round and strangely easy-drinking bock.
