COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sudwerk Doppel Bock is available throughout the Holidays and is reminiscent of traditional winter seasonal brews of Germany. Rich and complex, with a layered malt character. Brewed with generous amount of Munich malt. And a subtle addition of chocolate malt for a distinct roasted character, and a range of caramel malts for a full, rounded flavor with a silky creamy finish.

BOSSbrewer (1314) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours a clear amber with three fingers of frothy off white head. Aroma is sweet malt and caramel. Some spicyness in the nose also. Flavor is caramel but is also very tart and tangy. Very odd. Doesn't seem to style at least not what I was expecting. Almost berlinerweiss in character but with some maltiness. Overall drinkable but a bit odd.

benpickens (385) - Camarillo, California, USA - APR 23, 2013
Pours a dark reddish brown with compact head with slight lacing; brown sugar and caramel aromas; finish ends abruptly and chalky; more of a barley wine than a doppel bock and overly sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1089) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2013
A half finger of head on a dark brown colored body. The smell is faint overall: roasted malt and candy. The taste is good: roasted malt, bread, malt sweetness and a tiny lemon bitterness at the end. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation and medium body. A nice, solid doppelbock.

12oz bottle pours mahogany with thin light colored mocha head. The aroma offers up brown sugar covered prunes and blueberries mixing with some earthiness and just a hint of molasses. The taste is nice with mild dark roasted malts rolling quickly into toffee, dark toasted bread, sweet ripe plums and cherries. This comes together very nicely as I love the play between the sweet dark fruity esters, mild roasted maltiness and the kettle caramelization toffee like notes. Dandy Dobbel Bock in my book.
