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

I love this beer! Wonderful taste with solid carbonation, tremendous finish and balance. HAving moved from Colorado to the panhandle of florida I was missing this brew big time... when my local suds shop found it I took the 1st 5 cases right off the truck and into my trunk. If you donít want a brew with this much volume try the maple nut a great intro to Tommyknocker even for non-beer drinkers.

This beer is fantastic! The closest thing Iíve found to the defunct Saxer Jack Frost Doppelbock. Salvator has always been a poor replacement for me. Now I have one, but sadly, only when Iím in Colorado. Itís been a while since a beer has given me goosebumps - 1993 Celebration, 2001 Harvest and , of course Jack Frost. Now, happily, I have another! Tommyknocker is Awsome!

Great smell of caramel malts, very smooth palate. Not as exciting a flavor as the Sam Adams Double Bock, but a close competitor. But I would still prefer the Sam over this (but I canít find it at the moment).

Great taste! Great Flavor! Great Dopplebock! When poured into my glass this brew had a small tan head with small-medium bubbles that quickly diminished. The lacing was fair and there was carbonation with this brew. It had an excellent aroma of caramel and malt. The body was reddish brown in hue. The taste was very smooth and very enjoyable to drink. What a great drink!!

Sweet, malty aroma, with rather interesting hints of praline, cinnamon and brown sugar. Medium-dark amber color. Excellent lacing. Accents of milk chocolate and butterscotch. Finishes with a brief offset of hop and bitterness, along with some fading esters. Indeed, surprisingly tasty.

Smell and taste the fermenting yeast in this one. Great brew from Tommyknocker. Wonderful look and taste. Good overall smooth brew.

A surprisingly good example of the style.

This brew poured a very small head of fine to medium sized light brown bubbles that quickly dissappeared while leaving a fair lacing. Its body is a semi-transparent brown color. The aroma of this brew is very nice and full of malt, caramel and maple. Exquisite aroma! Its flavor is also very nice with notes of complex sweet malt, caramel and spiced alcohol. This is one flavorful brew that will get you smashed in a hurry!

I have found I really like all the Tommyknocker beers. This one is especially good. Itís very sweet at first. The malts are definitely in there. It has a slight bitter bite, but nothing close to a pale ale. Itís also very warming. I could feel it after one 12 oz bottle. The 8.2 alc. content is very much present. I like strong beers and this one is one of my favorites.

Color is a luscious amber. Aroma has strong overtone of burnt caramel. Flavor is malty with smoky undertones. This is a very satisfying and drinkable bock, best sipped and enjoyed by itself so one can better appreciate its merits, rather than put away along with a meal.
