Growler bottled from tap. Striking clarity. Frankly quaffable double bock, with perhaps more hops than are often seen in examples of this style. All the malt you'd want. Thanks be to LiebeBier for lugging this back from Downingtown.

yummmm - a bit thinner on the palate than I remember but still a kick ass Doppelbock. Sweet, malty yet with enough hops to not be overly syrupy. As someone else noted it was lacking a bit on aroma, but I might attribute that to the over chilled temp. it was served at where I had it.

Sweet malt flavor, hides the alcohol perfectly. A very good Doppelbock.

Light brown color with slight tan head. This beer is ridiculously smooth for 8% ABV. Malty and rich. Only negative, not much aroma. Otherwise an outstanding beer.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2010 I’ve had celebrator and optimator, but this one is better IMO. Very deep amber red with very slight head, which left nice lacing on the glass. The smoothest and easiest to drink doppelbock. Lots of sweetness from the malts but has some hop balance to it. Lots of caramunich gives it its nice sweet maltiness and deep amber color. No harsh astringent flavors that can be found in some bocks. I was feeling the alcohol after a 20 oz glass.

Quite nice with good malt, a bit spicy and in control alcohol. Would like to see in a bottle.

Holy macaroni! This is one ’big’ beer! Actually this bock is very drinkable despite the high alcohol content. Worth trying!

Germany in Downingtown. This beer manages to acheive high alcohol while remaining very drinkable.
