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.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2006 Very small and fast to go head but a great dark, almost black, color. A slight bitterness in the aftertaste but overall a great taste left in your mouth. The only downside is the thin body.

Poured a beautiful brown color with a medium sized and somewhat rocky tan head. Aroma of dark bread, citrus and ripe blackberries. Wonderful roasted malt flavors, some fruitiness and lightly hopped. Full bodied mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Lingering malt finish of bran muffin and honey. I look forward to trying this one fresh when I go to Germany later this month!

A pretty dark amber beer. Aroma is malty and maybe a LITTLE fruity. Not over carbonated, very warm, somewhat alchoholic taste. Very spicy and roasty flavored. I would like to taste a little more hops.But it has "lots of taste!" ;)

Poured out of bottle, bought at Sam's Wine & Spirits Chicago 6/3/03. Pours to a medium loose head of mixed large and small bubbles, lingering to a thin whisp. Slightly fruity nose (apples?), moderately strong. Dark auburn color with a clear body, not much carbonation, but dark and sexy. Initial taste is full and warm, again of fruit (extra-hard cider?) as well as some caramel, roasted malts, and a little bit of spice. Medium body with silky, creamy smooth texture. A little bit of a pleasant metallic buzz and an undertaste of alcohol with a moderately long finish. Very nice stuff.

Damn fine beer. Rich creamy tast, reminiscent of coffee. Packs a punch as well.

Maybe I was expecting more from this beer, but I was not overly impressed. There was nothing really wrong with it, the color was a nice dark amber, almost black, and the head was tannish and stayed the whole way though. Maybe something is wrong with my nose, but I could not smell much in this one. Flavor was good, but it felt kind of weak. Maybe I should try this again.

This brew poured a large tan head with very little lacing observed. There was no carbonation observed. It had an amber color body. It had a very smooth taste to it. This was a very good brew.

Nice sweet doppelbock. Big flavor of malt and candy, with a smooth, rich palate.

This brew poured a large head of light brown bubbles that were of fine to medium sizes. It had a dark brown almost opaque body with no carbonation evident. With a mild aroma of malt, it has a complex flavor full of spices, malt, caramel, some chewiness and a very mild aftertaste. It goes down very smoothly and leaves a good lacing as it does.

Excellent doppelbock. Malty sweet aroma and flavor, full bodied for the style. Sweet finish.
