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.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 translucent mahogany, thin beige head, chewy full body, medium co2.

aroma: lots of medium-roasted malt, lots of fruity alcohol esters, brown bread crust, some minerality, and hints of licorice and treacle.

taste: chewy roasted malt, sweet dark toffee, earthy grain, hints of cola and chocolate malt.

any and all hops are kept well below the surface. less cloying than the urbock 23°, but still a bit too sweet to be sessional.

Nice dopplebock. Very rich for a lager. Toffee is certainly present. It reminds me of a Heath bar a bit with the chocolate and toffee combination. Dry finish.

11.2 oz papered brown bottle. It pours a beautiful reddish-brown with a foamy off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. The smell has a nice fruitiness, caramel, and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is right on, perfect for a doppelbock. It isn’t too sweet. It has delicate dark fruit notes, some nuttiness, caramel, and some cocoa. There is no hop balance, but there doesn’t need to be, this is a smooth, smooth beer. The mouthfeel is spot on, the drinkability is high. Just a great beer, I didn’t like Samichlaus on my first try, but this one I definitely dig and it gives me light for this brewery. It is silly that this beer isn’t rated higher.

Bottle. Dark brown. Full off white head. Rich, hearty malty flavor, caramel. Some roast. Smooth and perfect strength. Real good beer.

9er (74) - Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2014
Sweet aroma of cherries and fig appeal to this rich amber brew. The malty taste and presence of sweet bread, raisin, cereal, passion fruit essence are balanced with a bit of rum-like acohol in the balance of a sip. Fortunately I do not taste the bitter presence of said hops mentioned by others on this feed. There exists a slight hint of toffee and woody essence, but no more than necessary to round out the session.

Pours a dark-brown, cola colour. Head fades away fairly quickly, leaving some sticky lacing behind. Smells of toffee/molasses and a note of real liquorice. Taste is semi-sweet molasses, with a mild hop bitter, along with a coffee-ish bitter flavour in the finish. Picking up up some notes of fig preserves in there as it warms up. Body is between medium and full; carbonation is barely detectable. As I expected, another finely crafted beer from Schloss Eggenberg.

This is a great smooth and malty drink. There wasn’t too big of a hoppy finish. But it was okay. Not my ultimate favorite. I’d get it again though if I felt the need.

NeoHippie2 (937) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Dark brown pour with an off white head. Sweet malty nose with lots of dark fruit notes. Flavor is similar with the malt being balanced by just a touch of hops like the description reads. The dried fruit and brown sugar really come out in the finish as well. A textbook doppelbock, delicious.

popkow (285) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Pours that classic translucent brown color of a dunkel. The malt is a molasses, tobacco, and hints to some fruit maybe prune. The texture is thin and carbonation average with a moderate leavel of sweet, acidic, bitter taste that blend to make a great beer.

Deep mahogany-russet colour with a white head that attempted valiantly to stay on top of the body of the beer. Significant allspice, carob, chocolate, caramel and date aromas. It is a full, dark and heady aroma that puts you in mind of pannatone, treacle tart or similar dessert cakes by a fire with a cigar to follow. The flavour is all of that with a lovely almost peppery note on a sweetish body. This beer is balanced, elegant and indulges the drinker with a fondness for dessert. In the lager world this has to be at the top end of its nobility. It struck me just where I like to be tickled and will willingly have more of this beer. Gorgeous.
