a nice dopple malty and rich in flavor,mid range on the after taste.a slight detection of alcohol but nothing that would set this one back Andrew196 (2039) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Compliments the bock nicely....slightly stronger and thicker in taste. Alcohol was masked very well for 7.15. Smooth, syruppy malt finish. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 26, 2002
Sampled this back-to-back with their regular bock. Wasn't quite the step up in strength that I had expected. The chocolatey taste was a little bit more pronounced and the mouthfeel was more satisfyingly thick. igneous1 (1538) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - SEP 7, 2002
deep amberish/orange...pretty big malt aroma, light bodied, hint of bitterness and slight feel of alcohol in the mouth...picked up some caramel sweetness in the finish after it warmed..i've GOT to stop submitting ratings while the beer is still cold!

This 'Doppel Bock' does not have the 'teeth' of most dopple bocks I have had, but it is stil a kick-ass litte beer.

A dark amber with a wispy tan head. Citric hops and cookie malt aroma. Smooth light body with a slight syrupy feel. Lacks some body and residual sweetness. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2002
Has a faint, yet rich malty aroma. It has a discernable caramel aspect and alcohol mouthfeel. Heavy malt undertones and light hop bitterness. Doesn't quite stack up to the 'other' Northern Midwest doppel bock, Leinie's Big Butt. Schell's offering is a tad on the tart side. heykevin (1287) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - APR 21, 2002
An average doublebock with nice trademark schell maltiness, some aniseed malt flavors that finishes reasonably sweet (it is a doublebock) but in my opinion never really goes anywhere. Pleasant, but not overly exciting. hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2002
Not bad - it comes on pretty strong with some winey notes in the intense malt, but if you can stomach such high pitched advocacy, it settles into a round, robust, smokey goodness. jamrun (137) - Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA - FEB 21, 2002
Very malty,and thick just what I crave in a beer............................
