Not very bitter for a doppel. Also, very light for the style. Good sweetness.

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

Nice caramel aroma. Body is like liquid caramel...a little on the sweet side. Not my favorite doppelbock.

Almost seems to light for a dopplebock. Carmael flavors with decent hopped balance. Alcohol is well hidden.

Interesting brew...caramel, hops, malty as it can be. Never tasted anything like it, though it reminds me more of a barleywine than a bock...and no this is NOT a bock...itís a doppel. Itís sweet, but not cloying, and the bitter finish goes well with the sweetness. Nice not-so-hidden alcohol kick too! Like someone else said I felt a slight buzz even after one bottle. I like this one alot and I will now try my second bottle of the six pack!

Interesting beer. Pours out to a nice brown color in the glass. Light fruity smell. Nice taste of caramel with a decent hop bitterness at the end. The alcohol in this one sneaks up on you. I felt a little buzz going after one. Iíd drink this again.

I donít know why this is listed as a Bock. This is a Dopplebock. This brew pours a clear ruddy brown. The average creamy/frothy beige head is mostly lasting with good lacing. The soft nose is mostly caramel, and roasted cereal, with a hint of flowers, herbs, resin, and earth. The flavor starts warm, rich, earthy and very sweet and finishes long with a nutty bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden in the nose, and the flavor. The brew has a lovely medium creamy body with soft carbonation. The finish has an alcoholic feel. Hats off to Tommyknocker brewery, nicely done! Beer of the Month Club is 4 for 4. And I had previously thought I didnít care for the Dopplebock style. I guess I just donít care for Paulaner.
