Lots of chocolate and malty flavors on this one! Good flavor, nice, tasty beer overall. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Very dark ruby. Faint head. Very good malt nose. Tons of malt in this one. Very nice. Maybe the best American dopplebock I have ever had. Very impressive. punkeedo (499) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - JUN 6, 2009
2009 tap. what a wonderful doppelbock! beautiful tangy malt aroma and a flavor of malted barley, alcohol sweetness, and perfect complexity, this beer competes well with the world market. well done. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Great dark brew. Don’t understand the hate. This doublebocks got flavor. And style. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Poured from a growler into multiple pint glasses. The appearance is a clear, dark brown color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly toasted malt with some caramel malt thrown in. The taste is a match for the aroma. A very nice doppelbock.

I tend to favor local beers whenever I get the chance; TC definitely qualifies as a local brewery for me. Of the three I sampled (Amber, Doppelbock, and Pilsner) at dinner, the Doppel (excuse me, DOPPLE)bock was my favorite. It served as a stand-alone dessert after a great meal, but would pair nicely with good chocolate and ice cream, for certain. It would also be a winner with anything blackened (catfish, even). Not too sweet, not too bitter, a good balance. Definite coffee notes abouind. A nice, oily finish stands out in my memory. RVABeerstro (13) - USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle pours deep mahogany color, nearly opaque. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate, roasted malt, sweet coffee. Flavor is huge roasted and chocolate malt with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Very robust flavor with a long, coffee, nut and roasty finish. Fits the profile of "liquid bread" very nicely. Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Dark, almost black color...small, off white head...Malty sweet aroma...Roasted flavors...chocolate in the finish...toasty... heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 3, 2011
Nearly black, deep brown colored brew with a light brown tinted head. The nose has some sweet caramel and peanuts. Milk chocolate hints come through. A strong note of toffee and dark chocolate in the mouth. A little bit of dark chocolate and some cherries follow throughout. A nicely made beer.

Had on tap at Stogies and Stouts. Maybe I was off, but I loved this beer. It was my favorite of the evening, actually. Flavor was rich, roasted nuts, carmalized sugar, and some milk chocolate. Easily drinkable. I loved it!
