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

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Sweet, malty aroma, with rather interesting hints of praline, cinnamon, brown sugar, very faint Hallertau spice and dark breadiness. Medium-dark amber color, clear, head and lacing both seem sparse. Toffeeish flavor profile, with accents of milk chocolate and butterscotch. Finishes with a brief offset of hop spice and bitterness, along with some fading esters, faint earthiness and lingering sugary sweetness. Indeed, surprisingly tasty.

igneous1 (1531) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2003
burgundy color with brownish tones. no head. lots of caramel, maple syrup and some alcohol in the nose. lots of caramel in the flavor, very thick mouthfeel, and some brown sugar in the finish. surprisingly good beer from an otherwise average brewer.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2003
A nice red brown color, with a rather small, off white head start this brew. Nose is mostly malt, but nice. Interesting flavor, with a very strong carmel presence. Good, but something strange about this one which I'm not sure I really like.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Smelled like caramel which gave it a creamy appearance. It had a sweet taste and after-taste that didn't last too long. It had a full creamy body.

sloth (2794) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Poured real flat. Clear brown with a pretty red hue. Malty, bready nose. Full bodied. Sweet malt some roastiness and bready flavors. Good mouthfeel. Finish is sweet.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2003
Copper ruby color with a thin white head. Thick caramel malt bock aroma. Sweet smooth body with good doppelbock characteristics. Nice complexity and balance. Dry lingering finish hides the alcohol very well.

joet (2534) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Not nearly as lame as I thought this would be. Substantial with adequate carmel malts that support a hearty hopping, rounded and melded. Body is light medium, rusty and oxidized.

Dogbrick (11332) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2003
This beer is a dark reddish-brown color with a medium and lively (albeit short-lived) light brown head. Strong caramel and malt aroma. Medium-bodied with lots of caramel and malt in the flavor, along with a little fruit and spice (pepper). Finish is mildly sweet. One of the better Tommyknockers I have tried.

Nice dark brown with a pleasant malty nose. Very sweet stuff here! Nice malty body with a smooth and sweet finish. Pretty good stuff here!
