COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The big brother of our bocks. Darker, maltier, sweeter, and, of course, higher in alcohol than our Maibock. This "bock" could surely take out a troll. OG-18.5 Plato (Snifter)

Lovely doppelbock. Enjoyed this little bastard right after halloween. I have been angry at them for running out so fast.

Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice caramel, earthy malt with some dark fruit. Flavor is more sweet malt some earth and treacle. After the swallow you get a bit of sugar plum. Nice beer, maybe a bit sweeter then I like but it still has plenty of flavor and spot on for the style.

jandd1983 (3050) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Sampled at the W&C Beer Fest 2015. It poured a copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of moderate toasted sweet malts and some hops. It had a medium body with a smooth texture and nice carbonation. The taste was of toasted sweet malts with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Nice.

Strykzone (5376) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2015
UCBC’s typical pint bottle poured into a RBWG Asheville glass. Red amber in hue with a one finger near tan head. I smell caramel malts. First sip is full of rich malts with caramel and toffee. Multi grain bread and fruit cake. Good stuff.

1 liter growler shared by JohnF. The pour is gold amber with a small off white head. The aroma is sweet malt, toffee, caramel, toasted bread, along with a fruit element. Full and rich nose. The taste is the bread up front, toasty, along with the sweet caramel and toffee. The apple fruit is present, though quite muted. The taste, like the nose, is quite full. The palate is medium bodied, nice active cleansing carbonation and a dry finish. Clean, well made. Thanks for sharing this one John.

phaleslu (7323) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Draft at iTap-Soulard, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear, deep, brown-hued amber with a small beige head. As the others have noted, this thing has a very malty aroma, with toast, caramel, brown sugar, graham crackers, pumpernickel, and a hint of earth. The flavor is equally sweet, malty, and toasty, with brown sugar, caramel, sweet crackers, toast, and a little bit of rye-like spice. Medium-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a toasty, malty mouthfeel. Good doppelbock.

vyvvy (4557) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours clear deep brown with a tan head. The aroma is very malty, rich and full with aspects of caramel, toffee and bread dominating. The body is thick and slick with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with dark caramel, toffee, brown sugar and is on the cloying side. The finish adds a herbal and licorice mix that not what I expected, but works fine here. It still remains very malty and rich throughout. Very nice for the style.

(draught) at Maifest, and again at tasting room; slightly hazy deep amber/copper with tan head; sweet malt aroma; full bodied with sweet caramel malt flavor
