COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Garnet-brown in color, no head, even after a rather vigorous pour. Tiny particles are visible suspended throughout the glass. Weak caramel malt aroma; not disgusting or offensive in any way, just too nondescript. Flavor is rather sweet initially thanks to the heavy malting. Very clean feel, very lightly carbonated. Moderate roasted malt finish. This beer is all over the place, and needs to find more balance.

Not that much aroma. Limited Head. Reddish brown color. Very sweet. A weird bock, but good.

Pretty dark amber with fine clarity. This one has the strnagest cola flavor or something very much like it. Completely unique. A hell of a lot of fun, but just damned wierd.

Great taste and alcohol content make this a must try. I didn't realize it was that strong until my sixth.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 Dark in color. Taste of fruits and malts is nice. Well balanced for a fairly cheap beer. Alcohol is present but not overpowering for a 8.2. Nice bock!

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2003
Dark amber colored. Malty, very malty. I reminds me alot of Bells Consecrator Doppelbock. Taste alot of carmel. Its a good Doppelbock, very much in line with the style.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: APR 18, 2003 Very sticky sweet, strong. Doesn't compare well to most other doppelbocks but at the affordable price of $1 per bottle, I'm not complaining. Lacks complexity that I like in other bocks. Quite potent but can't taste the alcohol.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Amber color with a light frothy light brown head. Initially an almost whiskey, soapy aroma. Very dry, with a good mix of malts flavor and fruits. The alcohol actually adds to the taste as opposed to dominating the beer. Can certainly feel the 8.2% going down.

Has the malty sweetness but is on the watery side. Alcohol hidden, quick finish.

Decent doppelbock, but just doesnt quite fit in the same class as the Germans. Good, but just didn't have the richness I would expect.
