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.

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.

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.

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2004
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.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
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.

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

(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.
