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.

Bottle from Trader Joe's. Clear, reddish brown pour with thick white head that disappears quickly. Almost no bubbles. Smells of bread and caramel. Taste is sweet, but with a dry finish.

Has a decent caramelly sweet aroma. That sweetness translates through to the flavor as well. Along with some maltiness.

Will always remind me of when I ducked into a nice German restaurant here in Milwaukee to escape rush hour traffic after my visit to the VA down the street. My first time enjoying Optimator (several) including eating an old can of sardines and then downing the juice on a dare for about $30 and then bought everyone a round... fun times. Anyway, the beer is a beautiful ruby brown with a great frothy beige head. Super enjoyable. Super drinkable. Full of brown sugar, dark fruit, bread, caramel, and a really nice smokey roastiness. Approaching full bodied. A whisper of alcohol. Overlooked. Yes ill have another..

Another nice malty doppelbock that is the 3rd one listed in the BJCP styles guidelines. Nice dark coloring with ruby highlights and very good tan head. Good lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty with some toast. Taste is malty, toasty, and has dark plum overtones. This is a full bodied beer. Overall very enjoyable.

1.5" off-white foamy head, low lace. Dark brown to black liquid. Malty aroma is toast grainy with hops in background. Well balanced taste of rich malty and bitter. Smooth body texture and very clean finish. Very drinkable and a pleasure to drink while grilling my favorite brats! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a crystal clear deep ruby with a huge reddish head. Aroma is caramel malts and some dark fruits. Taste is unadulterated malt assault with just enough soapy hoppiness to keep it from being cloying. Smooth, thick mouthfeel that manages to stay refreshing despite the ABV. This is a solid doppelbock.

BOTTLE 355ML. Look: deep ruby-brown with a small beige head with poor retention. Aroma: very malty with some burnt sugar, a hint of fruit acidity. Taste: sweet, caramel/sugar, balanced by some hop bitterness. Huge malt, not very complex, but otherwise nice and cleat bock.
