3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with a small off white head.
Sweet malt aroma. Sweet flavor of malt,
dark fruit and caramel. Much maltier than
expected given the relatively light color
of this doppelbock.

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

This poured the color of apple juice. The flavor was a little hoppier than I expected and the body was somewhat light. A different approach to the style that is worth a try.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus and peach smell. Peach colour, small creamy head. Tastes of apricot, and raisins, more like a barley wine. Complex, hides the alcohol well. Very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The palest and mildest tasting doppelbock
I’ve ever seen and tasted- even at 7.4% by vol.
Golden colored like a pilsner and even a typical
lagerish aroma. However, a strong malt presence and alcoholic
strength separates it from regular lagers.
Not a bad beer, but it doesn’t compare to doppelbocks
like Celebrator and Salvator.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel fruity notes. Pear, apple, malty. Medium amber hazy with no head. Starts with light alcohol, watery malts, neutral fruits. Light carbonic burn, but otherwise smooth. Good light nutty finish, malty sweet. OK doppelbock.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kind of flat, both in carbonation and in flavour.
I wasn’t very impressed. Perhaps I was expecting

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy yellow body with a spare white head. Aroma of grain, mild cigar, herbs, and lemon. Flavor of grain, fruit, and dustiness. Soft carbonation with a chalky finish. Not what I would characterize as a dopplebock.
