Dark red pour with cream color head that quickly dissipates. A lot of sweet caramel with a thick, malty body. Decent beer. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Draft at br. Nice solid brew. Very nice. With lots of body. Try it you will like it.

Pours a light brown with reddish hue. Appears to be clear. Minimal head that ends in single layer of bubbles. Spotty lace.
Strong, sweet caramel aromas. No hop.
Rich, thick beer, but there’s enough carbonation to prevent it from being too much. Lots of sweetness from malt sugars, but there is some hop to provide balance. The aftertaste is mostly caramel sweetness. rondphoto (4508) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 27, 2014
@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate Clear ruby brown with a long-lasting 1" head, swirls of lace. Taste is oily very sweet malt that adds dark fruit, alcohol, and more sweet in the finish. Big, sipping only, but no balance at all, and a little overwhelming. I expected better. Patrickctenchi (6808) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours cloudy, red-brown with a short, tan head.
Sweet, bready, toffee aroma.
Taste is thick, heavy dark bread....dark fruit.

9/12/2012. From bottle. Pours copper color with a tan head. Caramel, malt and toffee aromas. Sweet fruit, caramel, buttery with warm alcohol. drsordr (2926) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle pour dark copper amber. Nose dank malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste sweet malt. Slight metallic. Some vegetal. A little like cough syrup. Bitter on finish. DuffMan (10754) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
On tap somewhere in the French Quarter (hard to keep track of all these spots). In my plastic cup it looks dark brown with a golden meniscus. Sweet caramel bready aroma with fruity undertones. Malty rich palate, bread crusts and brown sugar, sweet raisins. Quite sweet but very tasty. GarrettB (1691) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 12, 2013
January 28th, 2012 - Boston Beer Companys’ Double Bock is a belgian dubbel disguised as a doppel bock. The aroma reminds me much more of the latter style, heavy with grape and cola notes on the nose, and a cloying sweetness that I’d expect from a semi-mass marketed dark beer (and especially one bundled in with other winter warmers.) And while the flavor shares this same clumsy malt-based sugariness, it also shares acute yeast notes, umami and a flavor that makes me think they brewed this beer with a couple rinds of parmesan cheese floating in the wort. Whatever the manufacturing process, the flavor is a bit of a surprise, and while it’s not match for a right and proper dubbel, it does make this one of the more desirable beers out of the Winter seasonal box.

Mahogany color with rich, creamy head. Scent of spices and caramel. Nice roasted flavor and lingering caramel with a strong alcohol finish.
