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.

Patrickctenchi (4070) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Pours cloudy, deep wooden brown with a short, thick, bright-tan head. Aroma is candied fruit, raisin, syrup, licorice. Taste is sweet, candied...licorice, caramel, nuts, dark, dried fruits. A slight herbal-mild spice flavour. Very nice...only a hint of the alcohol content...very soft and smooth for 8.5%.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 9-14-13- Served on tap in a point glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep murky brown color with a one finger tan head. The head fades rather fast leaving a bit of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big of sweet caramel and some smells of dark fruits of fig and cherry. The aroma also has a decent toasted malt aroma as well as some notes of chocolate mixed within. Rounding out these smells are some notes of a grassy hop, complimenting the others nicely. Taste – The taste begins with a big sweet roasted malt flavor. The sweetness is of a caramel nature upfront with it transitioning to a more brown sugar and molasses sweetness more toward the end. The roasted malt flavor upfront is a mix of brown bread and some toasted malt tastes. Some lighter coffee flavors hit the tongue as well as a rather nice hit of dark fruit flavors more toward the middle of the taste. With a little bit of a herbal taste as well as some alcohol greeting the tongue at the end, taste an overall sweet, roasty, and warming taste is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is rather midrange. The thick body is very nice for the big sweet and roasty flavors enhancing the warming nature of the brew. Overall –This one has nice and big sweet flavors with lots of malt. A rather tasty doppelbock that is well worth a try.

Pours a very dark brown, nearly black. It has a small tan head. Aroma is caramel malts, some dark fruit coming through. It does have a slight alcohol smell and taste. You can definitely tell the alcohol is present but it is not overpowering. Flavor is very rich, thick and malt forward, on the sweeter side. The darkest richest dopplebock I have ever had. That is not a bad thing. This is simply a great beer!

From a bottle. Pours hazy reddish brown with a fizzy bubbly beige head. Tastes like roasted malt, roasted coffee, sweet molasses, earthy, light booze and light ash. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted nuts, sweet malty booze, toast.
