Doppelbocks are my favorite lager style..actually just about the only lager that I really like. Everytime I try a new one, however, Iím a little disappointed that itís not a Salvator. This one is very good, but it still doesnít quite match up to that ideal. Non-existent head, slightly cloudy, aromas of chocolate, caramel, and toffee...slightly astringent. Fizzy, yet still thick and a little chewy. Sweet flavor, less depth than other doppelbocks. Though better than many other dopelbocks, I honestly expected more from Bellís.

No head, fizzy like soda. Looks like a darker old english. Tastes much different. Sweet, slightly thick. Not too shabby.

I smell chocolate, toffee, and a bit of coffee off the bat. The head is not really impressive. Itís dark brown with red/orange hues. A very pleasant, chocolaty taste. I really enjoyed this brew.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Bottle 12oz - Murky lightbrown pour with lots of sea monkeys floating around. Average foamy offwhite head dissipates quickly. Aromas of carmel malts and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet malts, caramel, some brown sugar, and toffee. This is quite tasty. On the palate it is full bodied yet carbonated enough to give it great mouthfeel. It warms a little at the end due to itís 8%. Definitely not Ayinger, but a pretty good second for me.

Murky light brown and orange amber color. Medium sized foamy head. Malty, caramel aroma. Sugar sweet and caramel malt flavors entwine, with a slightly fruity wine-like finish. Mouthcoating palate.

Bottle. Clear mahogony colored beer. Well made classic double bock, but lacking the individualtiy of other Bells products.

maple colored, small head. sweet aroma with a whiff of cough syrup (at 9% abv, it might be a touch medicinal). suprisingly, it was not sweet, but a bit winey in flavor. oily, full palate. i enjoyed this more than i would have thought.

Rich roasted malt dominates with a big alcohol presence (mainly a tongue-burn on the finish) Good winter warmer with a wine like texture.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 30, 2005
This was a really nice doppelbock. From the bottle this pours a red/amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Very clean tasting with a rich malt profile up front and a slightly burnt note in the finish. Hints of molasses, sherry, and caramel in the body with a very balanced taste and smooth texture.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours hazy dark brown with a light brown head. Sweet and sticky malt and caramel aroma with hints of alcohol. Typical doppelbock flavor of malt, caramel and alcohol. Little thin. Definately not as good as the best German doppelbocks.
