Kind of flat, both in carbonation and in flavour. I wasn’t very impressed. Perhaps I was expecting too much...

Very cool, black bottle. Contents are just right. This is a great lager, double bock. It’s appearance is a moderate golden color, providing a good fluffy head. Flavor was very nice, almost like honey or syrup was present. Taste complex. There was no ascorbic bite, so that’s nice.

Rich malty flavor and aroma, subdued alcohol sneaks up on you

Apperance: cloudy, deep golden colour, thin lacy white head at the start though it fades away fast. In terms of aroma this beer was almost non-existant with only a faint malty nose. For a 7% german geer, this one is extremely light in body. There is a definite lactic acidity similar to what is found in lambics, flander’s browns and berliner weiss beers. It is extremely unique and tantalizing and certainly not in the traditional doppelbock style. So light in body for 7%, you’d think they used adjuncts like the belgians do to lighten the beer. It is sooooo easy to drink and so refreshing. Not a doppelbock at all... I need another!

Medium golden color. No head at all. Sweet and malty aroma. Some caramel and honey. A dash of yeast. Medium mouthfeel. Overall a little on the thin side.

I saw double bock and decided to give it a whirl. It was nothing super memorable, alot lighter in color than I expected.

Good beer and a cool label.

Finally something different from the usual german lagers! Rich colour and taste, very pleasant!

Not what I expected for the acl. content. I can’t really compare it with other Dopplebock brews, because I haven’t tried any. But I enjoyed this one so much, that I would gladly try another.
