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

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.

The first of three Doppelbocks I have lined up for this evening's tasting. This one pours a clear, deep reddish brown color with a small, rapidly dissipating off-white head. No lacings. The aroma wonderfully sweet with hints of caramel, banana, malts, and alcohol. Medium bodied and smooth with low carbonation, the flavor is malty sweet with a lingering banana bread and caramel finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

Best of the Tommy Knocker brews I have tried so far... The aroma light of spice and sweet. The appearance is a lightly cloudy deep amber with a thin creamy head. The flavor is of bubble gum and spice and maybe just a faint hoppy aftertaste (the flavor is what sold me on this one). The beer is smooth and drinkable. Overall the best (yet) of a 6-pack sampler, not a bad D-Bock at all.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 Deep orange/brown with little head. Smells fruity and a bit sweet. Spicy with definite caramel and maple flavors, along with some fruitiness. Not much malt presence, although the beer is quite sweet. Not bad overall, but a tad sweet.

nice doppel - 8.2 is not noticable, maple sweet, bitter without the heavy aftertaste of some from this style

aroma was very fruity and with strong sugar presence. the head was very thin and the color was clear red color. the flavor full with a very strong bitter after taste. not what i’d sit down to on a saturday evening.

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 (7286) - 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.
