COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbitor Dopplebock is a powerfully malty German-style lager. The malty / grainy flavors so dominate this beer, it’s like a whole loaf of bread in every glass! Is it a beverage or is it a meal? It’s both.

Old rating, great beer. Ruby brown. Huge malt and grain body. Almost chewy. Some dark fruit presence as well. Good stuff.

This beer is wild. Very filling. Definitely from the german style and this beer will make you want more.

I haven’t had a doppelbock this good in a long time. Thanks shrubber85. Pours a dark maroon. Tantalizing aromas of dried fruit, red wine, sour cherries and bread. Flavors aren’t dulled down with heavy malts. Instead a bright sour cherry and raisin flavor lift this up. A bit of booze and toasted grain as well. Fantastic beverage.

This beer reminded me why doppelbock will always be my favorite beer style. Pours a glorious shimmery dark ruby color, excellent lacing and a proportionate white head. The aroma is distinctive, standard caramel maltiness, red fruit, but also a chocolate-cocoa flavor, very fresh and not boozy as some d-bocks are. Taste is delicious, layers of caramel malt, roasty burnt malt, chocolate malt, caramel malt, it's malt-tastic! The body was lighter and not as full as others, but I actually enjoyed it as this was the cleanest finishing doppelbock I've ever had. Absolutely no booziness or indication of the high ABV. Truly excellent in every respect.

Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College this beer poured a dark red-brown color with a large foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was faintly malty and did not have anything else going on. The flavor was faintly malty with a hint of dark fruit. Medium finish. Medium body. Surprisingly bland.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks to my Winter Secret Santa. Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, and grain. Taste is malt, dark fruit, caramel, grain, and a hint of chocolate. Very well balanced. Excellent.

My Bottom Line:
Caramel sweetness and earthy hops momentarily tag team until malt flavors decide to take over this warming Doppelbock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy dark burgundy.
-Candied fruit appears here and there.
-Carbonation is soft and the residual sugar level is high. Which is about right for the style.
-Malt flavors are a tad linear, which is not uncommon for Doppelbocks.

On tap at The Thirsty Monk, Asheville.

A dark brown Bock with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with dark fruits, vinous character, pleasant. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with dark fruits, molasses, alcohol warmth, nice. On tap at Thirsty Monk.

I love getting an American doppelbock! Complex beer - sweet raisins in the nose with a huge malty foundation. The flavor comes on sweet as well but resolves into a nice dry chocolate. Good beer, fun gravity. Drink responsibly.

La fois où je m’attends à absolument rien et que je tombe là-dessus!? Une base caramélisée qui se retrouve encercler d’un café moka bien torréfié pour tromper les sucres, du chocolat et de la profondeur des malts. Scié en deux.
