Citrus and peach smell. Peach colour, small creamy head. Tastes of apricot, and raisins, more like a barley wine. Complex, hides the alcohol well. Very good.

Not what I expected for the acl. content. I can’t really compare it with other Dopplebock brews, because I haven’t tried any. But I enjoyed this one so much, that I would gladly try another.

Finally something different from the usual german lagers! Rich colour and taste, very pleasant!

No head to speak of. Faintly bitter, some citrus. Overall very weak, almost stale.

I saw double bock and decided to give it a whirl. It was nothing super memorable, alot lighter in color than I expected.

Kind of flat, both in carbonation and in flavour. I wasn’t very impressed. Perhaps I was expecting too much...

Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 It is a good example of the European Strong Lager style with a soft, gently malt character, hint of acidity in the finish, and pear notes. Dangerously drinkable stuff.

PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2000
The palest and mildest tasting doppelbock I’ve ever seen and tasted- even at 7.4% by vol. Golden colored like a pilsner and even a typical lagerish aroma. However, a strong malt presence and alcoholic strength separates it from regular lagers. Not a bad beer, but it doesn’t compare to doppelbocks like Celebrator and Salvator.
