12 oz. can. Pours clear dark amber with a short-lasting small beige head. Aroma of malt, dark fruits, caramel. Taste follows nose with molasses notes, nuts, figs. Quite malty overall.

From Jan 2008 I got this bottle in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John! This pours from the 12oz bottle a clear amber with about a 1" head of foam that recedes quickly but it has some good lacing after the pour. The smell has notes of roasted malt, caramel malt, grain, and a touch of chocolate. It also has an "earthy" nose to it. The taste is of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt(it's light), caramel malt, and a bit of alcohol. The mouthfeel is pretty light and it finishes slightly sweet, watery, and again, some alcohol. I think the alcohol is just too invasive in this brew and prevents me from appreciating the actual flavours which come across as too light. I *do* think that they have a base here that can be worked on/tweaked and it *could* be a nice sipping brew but, imho, they aren't there yet. Thanks again John for giving me a chance to taste this one.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 10/30/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/light brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, roast, raisin, plum, wood, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, roast, raisin, plum, wood, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/woody hop bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of aramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light fruit, wood, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not too fruity/yeasty. Minimal dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is a delicious doppelbock. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and east to drink for the ABV. Rich and clean Munich/Crystal malt flavors, just enough noble hops to balance the sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Can. Deep copper body with a tight golden head. Sweet burnt sugars and bread crusts, sultanas and light marzipan. Nice.

Rich dark delicious beer. Double boch definitely lives up to its name. It's a strong tasting very drinkable post dinner beer, perfect after some dessert ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5
tmoreau (4637) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Shared crowler poured to snifters showing a deep mahogany hue, a sudsy layer of off white foam, with spots & ribbons of lacing. The nose was malty, lightly toasted, some dark caramel sweetness, and dark dried fruit as cherry & plum. Medium bodied, with low carbonation, the taste was similar, but less expressive notes as the aroma’s, somewhat lifted by a bit of silkiness to the mouthfeel, and a touch of alcohol warmth.
