This award winning doppelbock (8.2% alcohol by volume) lager is brewed with a generous supply of Munich, carapils, caramel and chocolate malts and is fermented with Bavarian lager yeast. The resulting caramel sweetness and rich mouthfeel are complimented by the mild bittering of German Hallertau hops. 1997 Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal Winner

Bottle at home. Pours brown with a frothy tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty, nutty, and slightly metallic. Flavor is malty and some nuttiness. Slightly sweet but balanced with nice hop bitterness. Finishes pretty clean with some lingering bitterness. Overall, a nice beer.

Clear amber with a barely-there head. Caramel, nuts and dark fruit. A bit too sweet and one-dimensional.

"Hits the spot in late fall with a robust malty backbone. Hops are light and earthy. Almost tasted spiced, and is very bready, slightly sweet, with some caramel and brown sugar as well. Better than a 42nd percentile brew."

Det här var en riktigt bra bock, smaken var kraftfull men ändå tjusigt balanserad, kroppen var stabil och upplevelsen total!

Bottle. Pours brown with red hues and off-white head. Aroma of figs and raisins, earthy, caramel. Taste is figs, vanilla, medium carbonation, a bit hot. Easy, good.

Clear medium amber, no head, no lace. I didn’t expect much more than a flat beer; instead I was pleasantly surprised with the big flavor. Sweet caramel malt with a burnt toast flavor that arrives just before a tangy carbonation blast nearly covers the mild hop balance at the finish. Lingering at the end is a definite warm touch of alcohol.

Salmoniform (1237) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Amber hue with off white head. Aroma is clean malt through and through, taste is malty up front with a nice CO2 and sulphur finish. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Overall this is a nice bock.

thebsmitty (138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Perfect amber brown in color with almost no head and a thin white collar. Aroma is caramel malt and toasted nuts. Taste is a good crisp caramel maltiness, toffee, and nuttiness again. Light body and low to medium carbonation. Pretty good, but not what I think of in a doppelbock.

Very nice brew! Has a caramel flavor w/ a touch of bitterness in the end to really round it out. Dark copper pour w/out much of a head. Good sweet malty aroma. I’m a fan!

12 oz bottle from Party Source from notes. Pours brown with a slight reddish tint and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have moderately sweet caramel malt, moderate roasted malt, dark fruits like plum and cherries, some metallic notes to the finish, some warming alcohol. Pretty basic mouthfeel.
