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.

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.

500ml bottle. 3.49$. It pours a clear gold with a fizzy white head that leaves some nice lacing as it dissipates. I love the smell of Helles Doppelbocks. This one smells like big loaf of sweet bread. There is some pretzel in there too along with a touch of earthy hops. The flavor is rich and malty with again the fresh bread flavors, caramel, and a touch of alcohol. The hops are there too, providing a subtle bitterness to cut the sweet ever-so-slightly. This is a fine brew. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-10-2011 06:05:45

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2011 this unassuming bottle contains the second best doppelbock around. Drinkable, but still thick. My favorite style is doppelbock and I have been to Germany for the Starkbierfest. This Austrian right on the Czech border. I can’t remember all the details but I marked it down as just below Celebrator.

Geiserich (4103) - 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.

theOptimator (363) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Aroma is big sweet malt, bread. Appearance is crystal clear apricot with very small fizzy head. Taste is sweet bread malt forward. Clean mineral water and noble hop bitterness and flavor linger. Palate is Full Medium. Still very smooth and bright, crisp. Noble hop bitterness lingers. Overall an excellent light colored Doppelbock. Hard to find and unique example of the style. Quite nice, everything is smooth and just right.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - 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.

doublebock (554) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Golden translucent color with thin white head. Light malty aroma and pilsner aroma. Initial flavor is caramel malt but then it takes on more of a hefewiezen with honey notes

The al/vol enters the malt liquor catagory making it the best one I have ever tasted.A few clicks north of Salzburg reveals an awesome old skool brewery.The potato masher bottles remind one that it is time to start WWIII.Worth finding.

Saeglopur (1670) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 27, 2014
330 ml bottle, cellared for one year.
Dark golden, clear body, with a medium, slightly yellow head.
Aroma of bread, ripe fruits, dried fruits, some honey.
Taste is very fruity, with ripe fruits, dried fruits, slight citrus, bready malts, bitter hops.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes surprisingly bitter and dry, zesty, a bit fruity, also malty and slightly alcoholic.

Great! A classic example of the less common pale Doppelbock style. Surprisingly hoppy and with lots of nice fruits. ABV is noticeable, but still pretty quaffable.

Bottle. Nose is heavily grassy with some hay and dusty, outdoorsiness, good noble hops with a hint of citrus and pale malt coming through. Not what I was expecting all! Sort of a doubled Heller Bock, confirmed by the golden transparent body and lacing, creamy, rocky off-white head. Outstanding. Taste is dry, bitter, a bit soapy in feel, lightly tangy, relatively straightforward/simple malt profile but has some great zinfandel and chardonnay notes, more than just a touch of honey. Medium, slightly slimy body with a little pepper to taste, but no heat. Touch of cereal grain, and there’s an undeniable connection with another style - a smoother, lagered, more refined version of a malt liquor. A little different, but good and interesting.
