An acceptable example of a Doppelbock, there are surely better ones out there. Good amber-red color and decent aroma. Thin tan head that disappears quickly. Taste is smooth, malty, light and a bit thin. Flavor fades quickly. Alcohol is there but does not take over.

Bottle: Nice buttery caramel and toffee aromas. Pours a transparent orangish-brown with a small off-white head. Not nearly as flavorful as most good doppelbocks. Lightly sweet with a toffee apple finish. Thanks to wolhfs.

Bottle. Chestnut colored. Slight white head. Rich molasses and caramel aroma. Medium bodied and smooth. Very malty flavors with caramel and light molasses and maple present. Tasty.

Not bad, I enjoyed the hoppy aroma and flavour. Colour is nice but the cost might not be worth the beer you buy. Enjoyed it more than the HopBock from Troegs

Tap at Kclinger’s publik house in Etters, PA. Pours an orangey amber color with minimal white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Malty, sweet (overly sweet in my opinion) flavor with a slight hop punch at the finish. The alcohol is palpable. Not very drinkable.

Pours a surprisingly light amber color for a Doppelbock. In other Doppelbocks the pour is usually very dark. The head was alright looking but not creamy enough to be interesting. The aroma has caramel and malts, a surprising lack of complexity indeed for a Doppelbock. The flavor is dominated by caramel and spices. It is descent but it certainly is nothing to brag about. This isn’t bad, but certainly not a beer I would but again. I bought a whole six pack, shit.

Reddish brown in colour with a malty aroma. Flavour is lightly caramel and spiced. Flavour is lacking bite, too malty and alcohol.

Garnet with small tan head. Aroma was malt but not as intense as hoped for. Some caramel sweetness, some spice. Medium bodied and a robust mouthfeel. Mild carbonation. Flavor was grainy, malty, some distilled spirit. If I’m drinking doppelbocks, I’m sticking to Consecrator and Celebrator.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a light brown caramel color. Too clear right off the bat. Too light in color & body also. Thin mouthfeel for a dopplebock. Very thin indeed. Aromas are of butterscotch, toffee, and alcohol. No hops in the aromas or flavors. Burning alcohol, and too much diacetyl for the style. Not the best dopplebock I ever had. Needs work, guys.
