COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doppelbock Dunkel has a pleasant full and creamy body, with coffeeish aroma. Nicely warming with toffeelike malty sweetness, balanced by a hoppy-bitterness in the finish.

Bottle into a glass. Pours a clear reddish-brown with a nice off-white head. Smells of sweet dark fruit. Sweet, fruity malt taste with a clean finish. Really good doppel.

stevoj (2330) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 25, 2014
rich and roasty with some molasses sweetness. Appearance is lacking, dull head, but that’s the only bad marks against this brew. Classic doppelbock.

GreenJeremy (71) - Spruce Grove, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Pours brown with a slight red tinge of red. medium head, quite fluffy, leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty, notes of caramel and plums as well. Taste is similar, with the malt leading the charge. Full mouthfeel with a creamy texture and a soft bitter finish. A slight harshness from the alcohol is present however.

Interesting toffee-caramel notes, kind of alcoholic sensation, well balanced between sweet malts and sour hops.

A decent dopplebock, though it had a weird metallic twang to it at the end. Wouldn't get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2013
330 ml bottle. Dark brown. Clear. Next to no head. A nice off-white / light beige fine head at first, but falls down after a little while. Crisp nutty lager aroma. Hazelnuts. Milk chocolate and caramel. Chewy malt. Body is surprisingly light given the complexity of this beer. An excellent doppelbock. Lively, fresh and very flavourful.
