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

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.

mildly sweet yet a quite enjoyable dobbelbock

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.

Oh, what a night...me and the guys go to Hooter...*ahh*, Chiliís, 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.

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