4.53/5  rDev +10.5%

Pours dark brown with crimson coming through when held up against the light. A good finger's worth of dense, off-white head with average lifespan and lacing. Sweet and malty in the nose, even when quite cold. Caramel and dark fruit notes are present. Malts, of course, dominate the taste, with a nicely-meshed mix of rich caramel/toffee and chocolate flavors. Hints of smoke and alcohol show up in the nicely lingering finish. The taste only got better as this beer (and I?) warmed, with nutty notes joining the party. I liked this beer from start to finish, but what impressed me most was the incredible smoothness that so perfectly complemented its richness. The mouthfeel was soft and smooth enough to make this a perfectly (and dangerously) drinkable beer, but without muting the complex flavors.

(Served in a stemmed Pokal)

A- This beer pours a dark walnut brown clear body that is a bit dense. There is a thick light tan head that is supported by strands of tiny bubbles gliding to the surface.

S- The dry caramel notes smell like cold wort with a mellow roasted hint and a slight biscuit malt note.

T- The rich malty caramel notes is a bit sweet with a toasted flavor that dries out the finish. There is a soft green note in the finish that increase just a bit as the beer warms.

M- The medium mouthfeel has more of a fullness on the tongue when the head is full and no real alcohol heat noted.

D- This beer is delicious. There is a great rich flavor of blended malt flavors and is just sweet enough to give it depth without being sugary.

A very deep mahogany body reveals ruby highlights when held to the light, and its foamy tan head holds well but eventually drops to a wide, creamy collar and whispy surface covering. The nose displays toffee-like caramelized sugars and lightly toasted bready notes. It's medium-full body and very fine carbonation lends it a velvety texture in the mouth. The flavor offers a luxurious maltiness that's fairly complex with notes of caramel, toffee, plum, honey, brandy-soaked cake, dried dark fruit, light powdered cocoa and some very subtle leafy hops. The rich, and somewhat sweet malt character is perfectly balanced by a firm bitterness that remains in the wings as it crosses the palate, but then combines with the alcohol to dry out the finish. Some malty notes of caramel and dripping dark fruit linger in the aftertaste. An classic example of the style that's quite rich and satisfying but also very drinkable!

Poors a dark brown with a beige surface lace and ring. The nose is of rock candy sweetness, roasted malts, slight molasses, and some tart fruits. The sweetness in the flavor is more tame than the nose and earthy roasted grains with flashes of dry to charred malt notes balances some of the tart fruit character echoed from the aroma. Some tongue tingling anise peppery notes late in the swill and linger on the palate for a bit. Very nice rounded, full mouthfeel and an even better creaminess for carbonation level. Some tartness, roasted grain and sweetness left for the finish. This was really enjoyable from beginning to end.

I must start (and probably end) this review as saying this is the best Tucher you can buy.
Appearance: Nice pour, 3-4 finger height head; settles well and adheres to the glass. The color is an amberish dark brown; a very good looking bier.
Smell: Very fresh smell.
Taste: A very robust and full-bodied taste.
Mouthfeel: Again, this bier does not disappoint.
Drinkability: THis bier goes down very easy; seeing that the alcohol level is a bit higher, this can be dangerous. This is a good sipping bier on a lazy afternoon while doing a lot of nothing (which I'm currently doing).
Overall, this is a wonderful bier that never disappoints. Great taste, attractive look, and just a wonderful bier.

16 oz. bottle. This beer is a beauty. Clear dark ruby-brown color, foamy, fluffy head, off-white, and inviting. A butterfly with sore feet, would even like this one. Perfectly sweet roasted carmel maltness dominate the nose. Same sweetness tasted throughout the bottle, lots of carmel malt, noticable alcohol finish. Medium body, slightly thinner than the celebrator, less bitter also. Easy to drink very nice dopplebock. IMO, I would list them 1.Celebrator 2. Tucher 3. Salvator. Delicious, sweet, and inviting.

Can Germany make a bad Doppelbock? Another great Doppelbock, malty and sweet without being cloying. Complex flavor while remaining easy to drink. Pours a deep red-brown with a thin off white head. Rich fruity aroma with bready, caramel malt. Flavor of raisins, cherries and plums. Bready malts, caramel, and a restrained bitternes. Good full body. Great beer.

Tucher makes an exceptional Weiss and especially a dunkel that is the most delicious of all German beers I have tried so I was open to a dopplebock, and not only for the higher alcohol count.

The dark flowing and medium carbonation of this beer lured me in and its smells included fruit, yeast, oats and grains, a little lemony hint.

The taste blew me away with an abundance of bold wheat and oats, tiny spice, very little hop, then sweetness. What a tasting experience.

Drinkable and smooth, worthy of another try, and another.

Actually I stumbled upon it and I can't find it other than one little store I was in. I have to go back and set it up for my beer club as this month's winner.

Served from a 1 pint 1 fl oz brown bottle with freshness date on back.

Appearance: Translucent dark brown that with a fizzy tan head that leaves an ok lace.

Smell: Aromatic black treacle with dark fruit similar to prunes and raisins Some bread qualities as well.

Taste: Malty. Black treacle again along with the same bread and dark fruit qualities that were in the nose. I can't really make out much in hops except for a slight hoppy type dryness toward the end. Twang of alcoholic acridness and maybe a bit of smoke and unsweetened chocolate also on the end.

Mouthfeel: Rich. Pretty full bodied and smooth. Could be described as syrupy but not in a bad way.

Impressions: Very nice. Bold flavors and lots of them. Bit strong on the alcohol though, so be careful

Pours a very dark brown copper color with a tall and creamy light tan colored head that leaves sheets of lace on the walls of the glass as it recedes. Nose is sweet malts with notes of dark fruits and candied sugar. Full bodied and very smooth despite the high ABV. Taste is complex and continues to evolve as the beer warms. There are flavors of sweet malts, buttery toffee, semi-sweet dark chocolate, hazelnut liqueur, sweet raisins, and a flavor similar to rum cake. Very tasty. This is a great doppelbock. I’m just sad that I don’t have another bottle of this in the fridge.

Into a nonic pint glass, pours a dark russet color with mahogany hues, not much head to start and fades to just a ring, a little bit of spotty lacing but not much. The aroma gives a lot, rich caramels and bready malts, some toffee, some nice stuff. But its much better to drink, a range of delicious things going on. There are the rich malts of caramels, of toffee, the fruits dark and juicy, some sweet molasses and perhaps a touch of chocolate. The mouth is nicely carbonated, very fine and even, smooth, clean, good body. This is a fine beer, one I should revisit soon.

Dark brown with a creamy head, this beer has a delicious aroma of sweet, chocolatey malt. The flavor follows through, a caramel maltiness, with a rich creamy mouthfeel. Not as strong or rich as many German Doppelbocks, but definitely as tasty. Highly reccommended.
