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

the silly cartoony labels caused my hand many times to careen off the tommyknockers and onto other, more visually enticing products whilst at the booze store. but i’m glad i finally tried this potent offering. it tapers from golden to deep red in my glass. if the head was cloud cover, you’d call it a good day for a picnic. still, it’s nutty, floral, with oven-fresh crust of whole wheat bread in the snout. brisk enough on the palate to be far from flat, and the hops are there to greet you at the door. very nice; mild for a doppel, perhaps, but at 8.2, a force and flavor to be reckoned with.

Nice blend of malt and hops. A very good bock.

Oh, what a night...me and the guys go to Hooter...*ahh*, Chili’s, to watch a basketball game and drink a bunch of Shiner Bock, then we each have a glass of some Whiskey stout, and this stuff was mixed in there somewhere. Very sweet for a bock, seems like most American bocks are. Smooth palate. Will try again and re-rate when sober.

Red-brown Very hop aromatic. Big maltiness. Tastes like a barley wine.

Im not a fan of this style, but I enjoyed this brew. This is much better than the Sam Adams double. The flavor was outstanding, sweet caramel--went down smooth.

A surprisingly good example of the style.

I think this beer is overrated. It is the least desirable tommyknocker brew. Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve had it many times and it always tastes and smells like soy sauce.

Very enjoyable beer. Minimal scent and a nice light nutty flavor. Not quite sure how to describe the aftertaste, but it was pleasant.

Re-Rate 01/06/02: Deep dark brown, minimal head, a virtualy no lace? Malt nose, start sweet, middle a bit thin, the finish is hop spicy, and a generous ABVsaves the day.
