COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leinenkugel’s is pleased to bring back Leinenkugel’s Big Butt Doppelbock into its limited-release portfolio. The name "Big Butt" comes from the image of two goats butting heads that you see on the label. Bock means billy goat in German and Leinenkugel’s Big Butt Doppelbock’s name and label pokes fun at the goat’s springtime mating ritual. The result is a malty, rich, full-bodied bock beer brewed with two-and six-row pale and specialty malts and two specialty hops. Like all Leinie’s beers, Big Butt Doppelbock is handcrafted one batch at a time in our historic Chippewa Falls brewery.

bottle - Clear reddish-brown pour. The aroma is of toasted malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with caramel and a touch of dark fruit. It's alright though not as robust as I expected from a doppelbock.

A good beer that has a great taste. Do they use GMO ingredients?? It appears they do - bummer. Nice site, thanks for allowing beer lovers to post simple reviews and not have to rate according to the 50 "accepted" measures of a review (based on all sorts of odd characteristics of the beer) as is done by some sites that claim to be your "advocate".

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Pours golden with substantial head. Aroma is wheat and light hops. Taste is acrid, odd for a doppelbock, building to some sweetness. Aftertaste is metallic that lingers. Not a good choice as a representative of doppelbocks.

Pours a dark reddish brown. Nice one and half finger khaki head. Pretty good retention, light lacing.

Aroma is medium/dark roasted malts. Has cherries, raisins and other fruits like that. Also a touch of cocoa and caramel.

Taste is almost exactly the same as the aroma. Nice dark roasted malt sweetness. Lots of dark fruits like cherries and raisins in the flavor. Good cocoa and caramel in there too.

Mouthfeel is medium body. It’s very smooth, no bitterness at all, no alcohol taste. Perhaps a touch sour on the swallow.

Overall, this is quite delicious. Wish it were higher ABV, but the flavor is very good. I would drink this again, and I also would recommend it. Yummy!
