On tap, Bavarian Grill, Plano. Impressive sized mug arrived at the table dark amber-black, average off-white head. The food had arrived by this point so I couldn’t make out too much of the aroma, some light caramel/toasted malt/biscuit. On the tongue, very alcohol-forward, but the strong, balanced roasty-toasty flavors came through as well. You don’t have to be a huge dopplebock fan to like this beer, as it is rich & thick yet has a moderate sweetness & soft carbonation that make it very approachable. And it goes without saying, supremely excellent with German food!

Very nice beer.. Id say medium body, easy to drink. Flavorful and bold but well balanced. Some bitters and good sweet roast but not very. Beer was easy to go down, will drink again.

I have to say that I’m a little disappointed in this one, probably because all the other dopplebocks I’ve had this winter have been very good. This one is just OK. Bottle into Chimay chalice, some foam, quickly gone. It’s a pretty deep ruby-brown, but transparent. Aroma of dark malt and bread. It’s a bit thin on the tongue, flavor is malty and sweet with some hop bitterness and a prickly carbonation... slightly medicinal. Not one I will go back to.

wombat23 (531) - Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber-brown with an initially fizzy beige head that quickly recedes. Aroma is very roasty. Taste is roasted malt, caramel, coffee, nuts, some alcohol, and spice. Finish has a moderate malty sweetness, with low bitterness. Medium body. High carbonation. Nice.
