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.

Very sweet , with strong malt and burnt caramel taste followed by the alcohol. Leaves the sweet taste lingering in the back of your throat. Not the best German brew but you could do worse.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 Very sweet--like it's supposed to be, without the high-alcohol-content burn that some doppelbocks have. Pile on the malt. I just wish I didn't have to drive to Virginia to get one.

Too much alcohol flavor in it to really be enjoyable. Quite a bit of hops also, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There are better beers at the price to make you happy.

Tasty, but a bit too hoppy for a dopplebock. Had a strong malt-liquor sting. Overall a good drink for $6 a six-pack.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2002
It’s a doppelbock. Alcohol is present in both initial and after taste. Other flavors are present, but difficult to discern. Roasty and sweet. Not bad.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Nice dark brown color. Sweeter starting off followed by a combination of roasted malt flavor with alcohol overtones. Not bad.

Recalibration time - adjusted down in this rerating after a plethora of good beers. A deceptively mild beginning but a rich and fruity progression, leading you into some excellent roasty flavours. A bit unbalanced toward sweetness.

A very good doppelbock. Nice hoppy taste. Pleasant, bitter finish.

Sweet malty, full body doppelbock.

Malty taste no doubt. Raisiny, sweet.
