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

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.

Other than the missing head, this beer has many qualities of something that I would like to add to my favorites. Awesome amber color, sweet smell and a great taste. The cartoons on the bottle just add to this beer. To this point, the best Tommyknocker product that I have tried. I am certainly looking forward to the rest.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2006 Bottled december, 2002: Thin whisp of unretentive foam atop an auburn shade. Subdued, yet beautiful, aroma exhibiting loads of spicy hops, brandy, pecans, wet paint, underlying pineapple, and loads of crystal malt to complement the hops. Lean texture. Sublime flavors of chewy Crystal alongside and spicy hops. The finish is extremely long, full of grape and more spicy Hallertauer. The winner of the sampler pack, but thatís not saying much.

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 iím glad i finally tried this potent offering. it tapers from golden to deep red in my glass. if the head was cloud cover, youíd call it a good day for a picnic. still, itís 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.
