COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Doppel Bock style of beer ranges from the round to the profound to the enveloping. In describing Bock beer, the term "single" Bock is never used. Just Bock. Nor is a Double Bock twice as strong. "Double" Bock is a very unGerman exaggeration. "Super Bock" might be a bit more accurate. Clearly, when this style was first developed, the idea was to exceed what had previously been the strongest type of beer.
This was finally achieved by the monks of St. Francis of Paula, who probably first made beer as "liquid bread" to be consumed at the time of Lent.
Ingredients: Pale 2 Row, Munich, Caramel, Cara Pilsner and Black malts, domestic Mt. Hood, Cascade and Centennial hops.
Available January through March.

Reddish brown. Big powerful maltiness. Complex. Rather bitter finish. A nice doppelbock.

Nice brown-red colour with a moderate fluffy tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavour is largely sweet malt with touches of caramel. Finish shows a kiss of alcohol with a dry tangy not quite astringent aftertaste lingers. Nice smooth palate. Thanks obisbeer.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2003
Medium copper color and a thin head. Sweet caramel malty aroma. Metallic off-flavors are present as well as an unbalanced body and a sticky sweet finish. I love doppelbocks, but this wasn't up to par.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Bottle pours caramel in color, medium white head, light carbonation, with sporatic lacing.   Aroma was of light malts, slight caramel or toffee.   Flavor was somewhat sweet, of toffee or caramel.   Finish was somewhat light, expecting it to be a bit heavier.   Overall it was clean and somewhat crisp, easy to drink, but was hoping for something more robust.   Thanks goes out to batkins for the freebie!

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle courtesy of MatSciGuy. Pours copper brown with a tan head. Smells fruity with some vegetal hints. Tastes of chocolate, caramel, spicy, some earthy hints. Enjoyable.

JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2004
Mild malt aroma. Brown. Flavor is sweet with malt, and very little hops. Medium bodied. I like the caramel bock better.

3.5
JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 3, 2002
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.

3.1
cheap (6213) - CHINA - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 For some reason, I was expecting a little more sweetness since doppelboch has a BV rating of 65. Had a little more bitterness than expected but was not bitter per se. Very dark brownish orange in my three stooges glass. Over all not bad for a dark beer and the price.-------&# Concerniing my Schell variety case: I was very happy with my variety in the case from Schell; pale ale, octoberfest, pilsner, double boch, caramel boch, firebrick, maifest, doppelbock, zommerfest, etc. Wow what a variety…..loved it.-------- was about $1 per bottle from JR Beer Warehouse in Rochester PA.
