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.

Good beer. Malty but goes down smoother than expected. Enjoyable for 7.2%. A unique doppelbock with good head.

I didn't get much hop in the aroma - very malty and sweet - slightly raisiny flavor. Flavor is definitely sweet and malty, with a lingering hop bitterness at the end. Not as good as the Celebrator or Salvator, but an interesting beer to try.

This was a strange one. The aroma is a bit hoppy, and maybe even slightly skunky, yet there were hints of fruit, and flowers and malt. It was as if this beer didn't know which way it wanted to go. The appearance was a dark drown, with a thin off withe to brownish head, yet not as dark as most D-Bocks I have seen. The flavor is malty, and a slight bitter aftertaste. The beer is smooth and crisp. Overall this beer seamed to be confused as to what it really was... On the label of the one I sampled it claimed to be Malt Liquor, yet is calssified as a D-Bock on this site... I'm confused, the beers confused... But overall it was an ok beer.

Nice dark brown with reasonable head and okay head. Nice malty flavor with a touch of sweetness. Slight hop aftertaste balanced the malt nicely. Pretty good stuff!

Very good dopplebock. Dark amber color. This is not the best dopplebock out there, but this one blows away most domestic offerings. It's a big mouthful of maltiness with just enough hop to balance it out. Good brew.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Pours a deep, dark reddish brown color with a thin tan head. The aroma is strongly malty and slightly fruity. Full body with medium carbonation, the flavor is sweet and malty all the way through. This one is thick and rich, with that lovely malty sweet flavor of a good Doppelbock. Very nice.

I havent had any other doppelbocks so this was a unique flavor for me ... very smooth and warm with nice malty flavors ... very easy to drink ... nothing too special in the color/mouthfeel/etc

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2004 Slight head; nice malt smell; smooth texture; semi-sweet, malt taste with a moderately bitter finish (2/14/04 on re-evaluating, I thought the texture was higher than I had rated it before)

Thick, syrupy Dopplebock. Very sweet and malty. Not the best of the German's but a good rich rendition.

Dark red-brown/mohagony body topped by a thick off-white lasting head with a good amount of lace left on the glass. Sweet malty aroma with a slightly fruity character. Sweet roasty malt flavor with a slight fruitiness and a touch of alcohol. Great flavor. Full bodied, smooth and slightly warming.
