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.

Jimthechap (1563) - Christchurch, - OCT 16, 2012
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.

kapusil (567) - HUNGARY - MAY 15, 2014
0.33l bottle. Dark ruby body, white head. Very boozy aroma and taste with notes of caramel, toast and chocolate. Not so bad but the alcohol is really harsh in the aroma.

Rodriguez (232) - Quito, ECUADOR - APR 21, 2014
Brown beer, with a typical lager aroma. Crisp malty and caramel flavor. It is supposed to be a high alcohol beer, but it is very refreshing. A nice beer even thou I like it with more a subtle chocolate flavor.

I am drinking this on good Friday in honor of the generations of drunk monks who forged this style in order that they might have drunken hallucinogenic visions of Christ during the Lenten season. It is a bright red-brown color, which is quite nice, but its small head is unfortunately limited in terms of staying power. This is a doppelbock alright. It is very much centered on big caramel and toffee malt notes. My bottle seems a bit oxidized and nutty (so the good kind of oxidation) as well, which lends a deep complex character . This is definitely a full-bodied beer and comes across a bit sweet, mostly do to their being only a slight bit of earthy bitterness in the finish. Despite this, it does not come across as overly sticky or heavy to me, although it is clearly a style meant for slower sipping. My biggest complaint about this stuff is it doesn’t really taste quite as big as its 8.5% alcohol would indicate. That doesn’t ruin my day or anything bet keeps this from really reaching the levels achieved by the best of its style.

EyeAmBaldman (194) - Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
Pours a dark ruby red with a slight tan head. Aroma is metal, corn and dark fruit. Taste is sweet at first with nuts if fig and raisins. Finish is like a grain bin. Disgusting.

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.

Aroma is a rich maltiness with some grain notes. Taste is a rich maltiness balanced nicely with hops. Body is a brown amber that is clear with a ok retained head.
