COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you’re going to sin, sin big. With 8% alc/vol and a creamy richness, this brew has developed a serious cult following. Imagine that – a cult following in Utah?!
Food Pairings: Front of cow, back of cow, rattlesnake.

Tried this in the Salt Lake City Airport. Roasted caramel in the aroma, sweet in the taste with some grains and caramel, some fruit too. Smooth and just as good as the Sam Adams variety of this.

Bottle courtesy Dougla88. Pours a dark red with a thin white head. Light caramel malt, roasted grain aroma. Smooth sweet malty body with roasted grain, dark fruit and caramel malt in the taste with a hint of euro hops. Smooth and easy drinking.

Decent head, doesn’t last very long. Amber color. Smells is sweet malt, caramel. Low carbonation.Like Mcox90 said "Taste is sweet malt with caramel and a touch of chocolate." Nice brew with good abv. One of the better, easy to find beers in Utah.

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a modest, off-white head. Aroma: Bready malt, dry dead leaves. Taste: Bready and caramel malts, fruitiness. Ends with typical bitterness from the style. Mouthfeel: Full bodied, almost thick. Overall: Not a bad "double bock." I like it a little more complex than this, but definitely drinkable.

Not an great beer. I had hope for this when I got it off the shelf. Hope was lost. Not much to the aroma. Clear brown color goes with the watery taste I got

mcox90 (1678) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 23, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of Douglas88. Pours a lovely claret color with a small receding off white head. Nose is sweet with malt and caramel being the primary aromas. Low carbonation with a heavy mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet malt with caramel and a touch of chocolate. 8% alcohol really warms the senses, or dulls them, as the brew warms.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt and something rather putrid. Flavor of sweet malt with some graininess. Somewhat bitter finish. Unimpressive.

LilBeerDoctor (3516) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a small white head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Flavor of coffee grounds, smooth sweet malt, and some bitterness in the finish. Pretty good (although it lacks the typical bready/doughy malts of a doppelbock). 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

UPDATED: APR 17, 2009 12oz bonus. Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet with a touch of chocolate. Taste is sweet and rich and overall a decent doppelbock. Re-rate thanks to Smokepot23!

bottle, big thanks to Tronraner. This is the single best label for a doppelbock ever. However, even given the awesomeness of the name and picture, I approach this beer with apprehension given my disdain for the style. The pour is typical for the style, kind of dark and fairly see-through. The aroma is only slightly vegetal, and not off putting. Toast and light spices are noted. The flavor is what I feared, but it is not bad at all. Not a lot of butter or corn is present. I get actually a pleasant almost roasty quality. The finish is herbal without being bitter. This is pretty good actually.
