COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The classic German dark beer, bottom fermented ’Doppel Bock’. Full bodied with a deep dark color and rich roasted malt flavor.

Supposedly only available in USA, at least not in Germany.

This is the first beer I""ve tasted ’by the book.’ Even took notes! I love doppelbocks, but this is not my favorite. The aroma is inviting, malty, and sweet with a hint of molasses. The color is dark, gorgeous and welcoming, teasing you with just the most obscure view of what""s on the other side of the glass. There was little head to speak of, and it disappeared rather quickly. The brew was very active and bubbled like champagne through to the last swallow. I expected a thicker, more maliable palate, but was very disappointed. It was thin and seemed to want to leave the mouth before it""s time. The flavor was rich and sharp, with initial chocolaty roasted malts coming through but quickly being overtaken by hoppiness and alcohol. The aftertaste was alcoholic and a little medicinal for my taste. Overall, a good beer, but somewhat disappointing compared to many of it""s doppelbock cousins.

good malt nose, head dissapates a bit fast but nice big, not too sweet malt taste with just the right amount of warm alchohol finish.

Red orange color out of the bottle with creamy tan head that left a pretty fringe all the way to the end of the beer. Burnt caramel nose. Very sweet malty flavor with lots of brown sugar, caramel, toffee sweetness. There is a darker roasty finish. Very nice beer.

Much better than Ayinger, in my opinion. Nice dense head. Good dark color. Aroma of musk, soy and alcohol. Tastes very malty and smooth. Great finished with a nice malt in the back of the throat aftertaste.

Very nice Doppelbock. Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet/roasty. Starts sweet and slightly roasty. Finish is clean. This beer does not have much bitterness, just smooth malty goodness.

Ring of head, dark brown in color. Nice cookie dough, caramel and some roasted malts in the sweet aroma. Quite sweet in flavor with very little bitterness and a toothpaste like aftertaste.
