bottle. Very cola-like appearance with a bit more red tints. The nose is thickly sweet of cola and caramel. I was a little afraid to take a sip, but once I did I was quite relieved. There’s more spices evident in the mouth: some nutmeg and cloves, even a bit of bark and raisins. It is predominantly the sweet caramel taste, but it’s not as overbearing as the aroma cautioned me. tgncc (3132) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Great beer. Malty and sweet aroma. A mix of malt sweetness, dark fruits, candy sugar. Very pleasing. The appearance is a nice copper red, also very appealing. The flavor is sweet, malty, bready, fruity. Enimently enjoyable. Nice thick mouth feel, as one would expect from a double bock. I can see how monks once brewed this beer to consume in lieu of food. The finish is perfect, a crisp hop bite. BTW, this is a re-rate, I love the beer more now than I did before. murawski (160) - USA - FEB 22, 2006
Nice deep red color, small white head, and a slightly sweet aroma (though not much). Excellent malty flavor with an excpetional mouthfeel (smooth, medium-body). I really enjoyed this Paulaner doppebock -- it stands up to Paulaner’s reputation. I highly recommend. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2006
pours a clear copper with minimal head and lacing. caramel, malt, and spice in the aroma. taste is malty with some sweetness and light hoppy finish. liked it, didn’t love it. CamdenD (1197) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 20, 2006
Very nice drinkable 7.5 beer. Huge and powerful malty nose with spices and alcohol -- easily the best part of this beer. The res is well above average, but nothing terribly noteworthy. It’s just a nicely done malty german beer that tastes a bit like an arrogant bastard type american strong ale minus the hops... which may or may not be a good thing, depending on who you are.

Amber color with a small white head. Caramel/malt flavor, some carbonation and mildly hoppy. A bit complex and hard to pin down, but a good beer. jsou (20) - Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Whoa - Molasses! Nice pour. Tan head with lace that comes back whenever you swirl it. Malty. Kind of sweet and as mentioned...molasses. Very nice, but the sweetness can get to be a little much after 2 bottles. Nice kick at 7.5% abv,but it’s evident. chicagobears (473) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Appears dark red with a bready beige head.
A bitter sweetness, a bit sticky. Buttery thick, soothing taste with a hoppy finish. tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2006
UPDATED: APR 10, 2006 Øl (50 cl) købt i Tyskland.
Øllen er klar rød, og har næsten ingen hvidt skum (falder hurtigt). Virker meget sprittet fra start, men bliver bedre efterhånden som den bliver varmere.
Smagen er bitter-sød, og maltagtig.

mostly diminushing small frothy tan head that tops up a clear dark mahogany body. Moderate lacing. No particules. Aroma is medium roasted crisp caramel malt while hops are very faint and yeast is light earth. Also, there are evident traces of plum prune and faint notes of pear . Initial flavor is medium sweet caramel malt while development is leading toward a cherry feeling. Finish is medium and shows notes of alcohol. medium to full body.. creamy texture... Lively carbonation..
A clean, well built doppelbock.
