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

Ruby/brown color. Palate was thinner than expected. Malts were sweet and caramel but gathered a sour/toffee as it warmed that became a bit cloying. middle of the road double bock

My favorite from the variety pack. Nice balance. A well-rounded dobbelbock. I wish I could find more.

Ernest (6345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2002
Draught. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (grapefruit), lightly malty (caramel, cookie). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Despite the brewery’s description, I still find lots of grapefruit and not so much malt in the nose...dunno where the Hallertauer is, but I always wish I could find it.

There is a lot to like in this. If I hadn’t seen the stupid label and name for this beer (in a blind tasting), I would have thought it possibly a Belgian (in the vein of a Chimay Rouge)--malty, but with a hint at fruitiness at first blush, excellent aroma, warming but not as boldly alcoholic as an English strong ale. The body faded a bit quicker than desired, but on the whole, this was enjoyable. The biggest offense was the build-up for sweetness that started to clog my throat.

Dark amber color, medium head. Nice malty flavor, some roasted malt flavor, slightly sweet. Nice smooth taste, full flavor. Mouthfeel is round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, mostly malty.

Dark copper/brown color. Head was thin. Aroma of sweet malt. Passable. Lacks any real depth. Sorta like my wife.

Fruity roasty aroma, nice brown color,smooth roasted caremel flavor. I think this is their best brew. O.K. American doppelbock.
