COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth rich dark southern German dobblebock is an Indian Wells Brewing Co. favorite. This 10.8% beer is powerful, but VERY easy to drink! This beer is not for the timid. A few of them and you’ll feel like you’ve had a frontal lobotomy the next day. Consume with caution!

brewandbbq (269) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Pours dark mahogany with barely translucent edging. A half inch head of off white fizzled away quickly making way for a placid surface and a few dots of lacework. Aromatics are promishing with fresh, doughy malt, a bit of chocolate, and raisins. Slightly sweet with caramel overtones. Thinnish mouthfeel and light bodied. Some light malt, hints of chocolate and caramel, and a trace of warming alcohol on the palate. A trace or raisins and toffee quickly follow through before a quick finish. Finishes with light malt and pretty much non offensive. This one drinks like a "Dopplebock-light". Nothing really to detract besides lack of flavor. Thanks to SacodeToro for the bonus brew!

Originally rated on 1/22/09. aroma of sweet caramel malts and some dark fruit. Black body, head fades quickly and doesnt leave much lace. Flavor is earthy, aftertaste is similar to mushrooms, also there is a slight sweetness to it. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall it was passable.

Poured from the bottle. Very dark with a hint of crimson. Thin head. Aroma is of black lager. Flavor is also like a black lager but more barrel or bourbon type flavor. Really good.

monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2015
A decent bock, fine but basic. Pours a very nice see ruby red/black. Smells malty. Taste is cream and malt, with a hint of coconut and a smooth finish. Easy drinker for the alcohol percentage. Had in the bottle.

Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - AUG 2, 2015
~Rich malty aroma of cocoa, bread, and caramel. ~Pours black with small wispy white head. ~Malty flavor of cocoa, bread, caramel, light roast. ~medium bodied, medium light CO2, clean smooth malty light roast finish. ~This is enjoyable, although unmemorable. Surprising that it is over 10% alc. Taste and smells more like a porter than a Doppelbock.

dalekliz (924) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with bubbles and no head. Malt aroma, of brown sugar, a bit of roastiness. Taste is crisp and highly carbonated, of toasted malt mainly and some yeast. Hides the alcohol completely. Lingering crispness without much flavor. Very drinkable but not a lot going on.

Fatehunter (2604) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours no head on a dark brown body. The aroma is caramel candy. Nice. The taste starts mildly sweet with dark fruits, then turns sour to the end. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Not a good flavor profile.

GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 28 May 2012 -- Picked this bottle up in San Antonio. I was pretty underwhelmed by this beer. Watery.

rosenbergh (11755) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2015
22 oz bottle. 12%. (Albertsons) Ridgecrest, CA.
Dark reddish brown colour with a small light tan head. Sweet malt, mild hops and some sugary notes in the aroma. The flavour is sweetness, malt, berries and some hoppy bitterness. The 12% is surprisingly well hidden. No alcohol flavour.

4.2
mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2015
Nice solid bock. Surprisingly mellow flavor, but good maltiness. Hint -- for food pair, works well with spicy foods.
