Great taste and alcohol content make this a must try. I didn't realize it was that strong until my sixth.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 Dark in color. Taste of fruits and malts is nice. Well balanced for a fairly cheap beer. Alcohol is present but not overpowering for a 8.2. Nice bock!

Dark amber colored. Malty, very malty. I reminds me alot of Bells Consecrator Doppelbock. Taste alot of carmel. Its a good Doppelbock, very much in line with the style.

foduck (330) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: APR 18, 2003 Very sticky sweet, strong. Doesn't compare well to most other doppelbocks but at the affordable price of $1 per bottle, I'm not complaining. Lacks complexity that I like in other bocks. Quite potent but can't taste the alcohol.

Amber color with a light frothy light brown head. Initially an almost whiskey, soapy aroma. Very dry, with a good mix of malts flavor and fruits. The alcohol actually adds to the taste as opposed to dominating the beer. Can certainly feel the 8.2% going down.

Has the malty sweetness but is on the watery side. Alcohol hidden, quick finish.

Decent doppelbock, but just doesnt quite fit in the same class as the Germans. Good, but just didn't have the richness I would expect.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2003
The first of three Doppelbocks I have lined up for this evening's tasting. This one pours a clear, deep reddish brown color with a small, rapidly dissipating off-white head. No lacings. The aroma wonderfully sweet with hints of caramel, banana, malts, and alcohol. Medium bodied and smooth with low carbonation, the flavor is malty sweet with a lingering banana bread and caramel finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

Best of the Tommy Knocker brews I have tried so far... The aroma light of spice and sweet. The appearance is a lightly cloudy deep amber with a thin creamy head. The flavor is of bubble gum and spice and maybe just a faint hoppy aftertaste (the flavor is what sold me on this one). The beer is smooth and drinkable. Overall the best (yet) of a 6-pack sampler, not a bad D-Bock at all.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 Deep orange/brown with little head. Smells fruity and a bit sweet. Spicy with definite caramel and maple flavors, along with some fruitiness. Not much malt presence, although the beer is quite sweet. Not bad overall, but a tad sweet.
