Our winter lager is perhaps our most famous beer, though no longer the strongest. Like all traditional German doppelbocks, it is richly spicy with a subtly sweet malt palate and a clean, crisp, dry hop finish. 25 cents from every stein helps to terminate hunger in Washtenaw County.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Hazt orange red color. A little vanilla and sour cerry along with some baking spice on the nose. Body is smooth but falls a little flat in the finish. A little one note.

flatmatt (1544) - Northville, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at Arbor Brewing. Pours amber with a white head. Toasty malt aroma. Flavor is similarly toasty malt, light hop flavors, slight sweetness, light honey and caramel. A solid job.

Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2011
On tap December 2009 at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes. Pours a light caramel brown. Brings forward quite a bit of sweetness and a bit of caramel and spice. Slightly hoppy. Taste brings hints of caramel and toffee, but mostly some generic sweetness. Feel is fairly light but works with the milder flavors. Drinkability is okay, but not a great representation of the style. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-08-2010

deyholla (11161) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear deep orangish copper with an off-white head. Aroma was full of sweet grainy notes, kind of like a sweet bread. Flavor was sweet with grains and some spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) with a bit of an alcohol bite.

Tmoney99 (14273) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Draft sample at Arbor. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and small hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet malt flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good beer and good to style.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2008
From 10-Beer Flight at Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub on December 1, 2008. Orange-amber color. Partly cloudy. Lightly sweet, malty aroma. Flavor is much like a strong ale. Very sweet and has a sticky finish almost cherryi-sh. You can taste a little pronounced hops as it hits the tongue. Very good!

Terminator Doppelbock pours a hazy toffee brown with very little head. The flavor is bready and sweet with some spice, but disappointingly thin and without much alcohol presence for this style. The best part of this beer for me was the 25 cent donation towards hunger relief.

3fourths (9314) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Light in color, similar to the Troegs with a golden amber red color. Lightly tingly on the tongue up front, sweet and floral, with some candy sugar and fruity notes through, finishing a little heavier on the yeast presence. Not a typical doppelbock but a good high gravity beer regardless.

dsm (109) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Sample at brewpub. Pours a light brown color. The taste is sweet with mild spice. It is smooth and drinkable even with the high alcohol content.

Sammy (11949) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2007
Reddish with white soapy head. Some lace. Fruitiness in aroma and in the taste, perhaps too fruity, apple juice more describes the fruit. Well, sweet though drinkable.
