COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After twenty years of making beer, Millstream has decided to celebrate! The brewmasters have carefully devised a special beer, a dopplebock, to commemorate the event. This beer is available only in 22 oz large bottles, and only 1000 bottles were made. Each bottle was hand filled and labeled by zealous fans of the brewery. The brewers say that this beer is fantastically rich and full of malty goodness. Notes of sweet plums and caramel are present throughout this dark, heavy beer. At 6.25% ABV, this is the strongest beer that Millstream could legally make in the state of Iowa. This beer will probably not be made for another five years, so don’t miss out!

Ungstrup (39104) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2006
A hazy nut brown beer with an orange head. Both the aroma and flavor are sweet malty with strong notes of caramel, and just a bit of a bite from the alcohol.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Skyview. Comes as: "Millstream 25th Anniversary Dopplebock". Pours a cloudy brown with hardly any head (probably due to a loose cap, the bottle had leaked during shipping). Lovely aroma of pumpernickel and nuts. Solid body with a great malt base, pumpernickel, nuts and molasses. Carbonation is low. Hardly any bitterness. 290911

cubs (10745) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle @ Iowa City hotel room. Dark reddish brown appearance with a small light tan head. Brown malty, nutty aroma. Good dark nutty brown lager flavor that’s really more like a Munich-style Dunkel. Not a huge Bock flavor and tastes low in alcohol for a Bockbier. Quite tasty nonetheless but honestly, Iowa needs to change its law so they can make this one a little more potent.

3.6
drowland (9191) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2011
5/20/11. Bomber thanks to Tim and Rachel. Malty caramel aroma with a hint of oxidation that is borderline barleywine like. Big caramel malty flavor that again reminds me of a barleywine. Nice!

3.4
CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Sampled at the Milwaukee YEHa!05 courtesy of JPDIPSO: Pours a still transparent copper amber. Sweet malty caramel aroma has a touch of grapes and vinous character with some bocky German yeastiness. Starts sweet with sticky caramel and lightly fruity with a good, authentic bock flavor and a clean, tasty, green Hallertau hop flavor. A little more carbonation and this would be quite nice. It’s a shame that this is the strongest thing that can be legally brewed in Iowa.
