look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Crystal clear deep mahogany brown with garnet highlights and a thick off-white head that retains well. Lots of small slow-rising bubbles and thick glass coating lace. The sediment was minimal and tended to remain in the bottle. Utterly spectacular in appearance.

Aroma: Heady aroma of black bread, molasses, dark fruit, and strong alcohol.

Taste: Begins with molasses and dark bread notes, but there are also bitter chocolate, dark fruit, wine-like notes, caramel, and most definitely sweet alcohol flavors. The finish is dry and is dominated by alcohol flavors.

Mouth feel: Very smooth and pleasant with a creamy characteristic.

Drinkability/notes: A profoundly excellent beer. Germany is noted for brewing excellence; surely this beer must be noted among its finest. The high alcoholic content may preclude this from being a good choice as a session beer.

Pours a clear but very dark ruby with minimal head. Nose is sickly sweet with a strong caramelized sugar with extremely heavy malt tones. Flavor is smooth and deep. Wood tones. Malt tones. Strong sugar present. Feel is nearing syrupy. Definitely drinkable. Leaves an almost smoked flavor on the aftertaste.

Milk chocolate brown color with a light brown head. Has a rich, malty aroma with bits of chocolate. A bit of alcohol is in the nose as well. The flavor is sweet, rich and malty, somewhat bready with figs. It flows to a sweet, alcoholic finish. This is a full-bodied beer that is easily drinkable. A very good Doppelbock.

Want to thank my buddy at the beer store, when I came in he pulled this out from the back and handed to me said he was saving it for the regulars, don't get to buy many beer over 6% in NC yet.

Pours a brown with red tints a one finger tan head falls slowly not much lace but still a fine looking beer.

Aroma is bready malt lots of fruit figs, dates, plums all covered with rich sweet molasses. Some light spicey aromas mix with light alcohol, very rich nice doppelbock.

Taste is just like the smell rich bready malt molasses mixed with caramel in the flavor loaded down with fruit finishes with light spice pepper, cloves, nutmeg mixed smooth but lightly spicey. Slight warming of the body from the alcohol thats almost unnoticable except for the warming sensation it brings.

Mouthfeel is nice feels almost full rich like bread soaked with rum and molasses.

Drinkability is good starting to enjoy this style more now then I did in the past. Very tasty would recommend this one to everyone, enjoyed it very much.

Dark bronze with a significant infusion of brick red and with ripe orange borders. For some reason I always expect dobbelbocks to be some shade of dark brown, but I like this color better. The several finger crown is beige in color and semi-creamy in consistency. A lack of stickiness results in a lack of character as it descends, as well as a near complete lack of lace. Love the color of the beer though.

Given the 'light end of the doppelbock color spectrum' color, perhaps it isn't so surprising that the aroma favors fruitiness over roasted maltiness. There's still a recognizable dark malt center, but scents of big-time roast and cocoa just aren't present. The nose is most reminiscent of strong black tea and dark fruits such as figs and raisins. Interesting, different (but still style-appropriate) and enjoyable.

No surprises on the palate given the first two characteristics. I would say that the bold flavor is surprising, but I'm a fan of this brewery and nothing that they create is surprising to me anymore; it's all good. There's enough lightly roasted malt on hand to impart that classic doppelbock flavor and mouthfeel.

Sweet and dark fruity still overpower all else: sticky dates, figs and raisins swimming in a light chocolate-caramel-molasses sauce. The flavor profile deepens, intensifies and becomes even more delicious as the beer approaches room temperature. The hop presence is cursory at best, although I do appreciate a modestly bitter (still black tea-like) bite on the finish that keeps things from becoming too malty sweet.

No hint of the 7.2% ABV, except perhaps the slightest tongue tingle. Of course that could be the carbonation more than the alcohol. Speaking of bubbles, they're well-behaved while still keeping the mouthfeel somewhat lively. Medium dobbel body with an appropriate gentle creaminess.

Brauerei Tucher Brau doesn't get near the credit that they deserve. All they do is put out quality beer after quality beer and I haven't found one yet that was anything less than delicious and insanely drinkable. Bajuvator Doppelbock is an exemplary version of the style and is well worth your hard-earned money.

Into the cervoise, this beer is very dark brown/crimson, not opaque but pretty dark. There’s a good amount of carbonation bubbling up. Pretty solid 1-1/2 finger head of brown foam. Head fades slowly leaving a nice solid ring and plenty of lacing. Nose is dominated by sweet malts, sorghum, and coffee with a strong banana presence. The nose hints at a sugary, malty flavor. The taste is dominated by the sweet malt up front, sugary yet nicely tempered; the flavor fades nicely to a chocolately, coffee-like flavor, finishing on a bitter, dry note. There’s a mild warmth toward the middle. Mouth is creamy and full bodied but not too thick, though a bit flat. Drinkability is outstanding: great taste, substantial but smooth mouth, and no real alcohol burn.

Overall: Admittedly, I am a big fan of the dopplebock style, but this one is just plain excellent. It’s nearly the equal of Celebrator, and that’s saying something. Highly recommended.

A great doppelbock by Tucher. Enjoyed it chilled in my Duvel chalice. Poured a clear, reddish brown with a little head. Smelled of candied fruit, some caramel and a bit of toffee. Taste was similar, nicely balanced with syrupy viscosity and a warming finish. A hardy brew that I coud enjoy after any fine meal.

Pours a dark brown with 1.5" of off-white head that did not have very good retention. Very little if any lace is left on the glass surface during consumption.

Complex aroma of sweet malt, dark fruit, peanuts, and alcohol. Very interesting and every time I took a whif I could smell something different.

The taste does not quite live up to the aroma. It is still delicious however. Sweet, milky, and fruity with a hint of alcohol on the finish.

Does not have a great mouthfeel. Overcarbonated and lacks a creamy mouthfeel that would put this over the top.

A very good Doppelbock and worth seeking out. Big ABV limits consumption but I will definately buy this again when I feel like a big malty beer.

First time I have tried anything from this German beer company. Wanted something dark and rich so I went with the Doppelbock.

Pours a dark brown with red highlights, like cherry Dr. Pepper. Light brownish grey head.

The aroma - Rich cocoa, molasses, and I think I want to say fig or prunes. Dark cherries, dark fruit in general.

Taste - Nice mellow sweetness, not as sticky sweet as others that I have had. The alcohol seems to be very well hidden here. Sweet roasted malt with flavors of cocoa more than anything else. Chocolate covered cherries. Now I will also make a new descriptive characteristic for doppelbocks such as this that I haven't used before. This style of beer is "tobbaccoey." Yes, it tastes like raw chewing tobbacco, which I find to be a pleasing taste even though I haven't chewed in years. (Of course now I am pondering, is there such a thing as a smoked doppelbock, and if so does it taste like an ash tray?) All jokes aside, while this surprisingly isn't the best doppelbock I have tried (Ayinger and Sam Adams in my opinion make the best ones) this is still a pretty damn good and very drinkable doppelbock. It was also pretty reasonably priced where I found it so I definately will have some bias towards it.

I wanted to try some of the better German bottles out there, and found this picked this dopppelbock up from the beers of Europe website and consumed it at my dad's house on a visit to the UK.

An dark amber coloured pour quickly produces a frothy tan coloured head, which shows good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet bread, dark fruit, toasted nuts and caramel. The flavour is much the same, which in this case is a good thing, as the nose is excellent. Rich layers of raisin, chocolate, pecan and brown sugar overlay a strong sweet bready malt background. Above all else its an intensely fruity doppelbock, and as rich as any fruitcake. A moderate bitterness helps to keep the sweetness in check. The finish is both slightly drying and warming. In spite of the high sugar level the body thankfully never strays above medium and a nicely active carbonation keeps things interesting.

This is an extremely drinkable doppelbock, and I can see why its highly regarded. The sheer intensity of its fruitiness sets it apart from its rivals and the malt is the star of the show here. If I had ready access to this gem it would certainly be a regular in my fridge.

I've really been in the mood for some hearty doppelbocks lately. Hope this satisfies my craving for the night. Wow...Looks good from the start. Pours a beautiful chestnut brown into my pilsner glass with all sorts of tiny carbonation rising. A tan 2 finger head formed on the pour that slowly faded to 1 finger of rocky frothiness. Small sticky thin patches of lacing form after each drink.

This beer is loaded with great aromas. There's a fruity sweetness. Warm banana bread starts things off. After the hints of banana bread wonderful smelling maltiness takes over. Sweet dough, mild nutiness, mild milk chocolate and a perfect toasted grain aroma. This stuff smells like a meal. Like a meal you would want on a chilly night. Smells wonderful but could be slightly more pronounced.

Every bit of the smell comes out to show it's true self in the flavor. Banana bread starts things off again there is even a small amount of tartness you encounter when eating a banana. When the beer makes it's way to mid-palate the sweet doughiness moves in along with the nuttiness and milk chocolate. Sweet toffee shows up on the swallow after some warming. Creamy milk smoothness. Zero alcohol in the flavor. Excellent!

Medium bodied but velvety smooth. The smoothness is unbelievable. Carbonation is there pushing things through but is undetectable. Very nice.

Drinkability is outstanding. If this beer wasn't so much like a meal, which it's meant to be, it would get the perfect score for drinkability. I think it would be too filling to drink all night long. I do find myself drinking this one pretty quickly though.

Tucher Bajuvator is an outstanding doppelbock and one that will be in stock at my house for the rest of the winter. An excellent beer at an excellent price. Hard to beat. This definitely satisfied my craving for the night.

MMMmmmmm!

The only thing that kept this from becoming my favorite d-bock was the fact that I had an Allgauer Cambonator right before this one.

Barring the first experience, there are times in your life when a single beer can just melt all your troubles away. This is one of those beers. The pour, the sniff, the drink, and the swallow all meld into one glorious magic carpet ride--a seamless thread of experience, one inseparable from the other.

To break a beer like this into its component qualities is to take away its very life.

Sure, its a dopplebock. But that's only the beginning.

1pt long brown bottle poured into a mug.

A: Rich mahogany that allows deep maroon light penetration around the edges with a quality cream colored head.

S: A little bit sweet, a little bit dairy, and a lot of malt. Think milk dud or chocolate malted shake from DQ. As it warms I pick up some fruity sweetness and alcohol reminiscent of brandy.

T/M: This is a full viscous beer with a silky texture and a beautiful alcohol backbone. The malts come through right up front, again with lots of dairy, some butterscotch and a hint of chocolate. An extremely complex palate that fades into a warming comfortable dose of alcohol with trails of black pepper.

D: A fantastic instantiation of the style. The nose put me off a bit at first, but as it warmed up, really grew on me. Note to self, keep the fridge stocked with this.

Pours with a creamily thick tan head of large bubbles, with firm retention. A little sticky cling before the head starts to fade out to off-white swirlers. Color is of milk chocolate; beer appears murky, but with near-orange highlights at the perimeter. Aromas of light caramel and an oily, carob-like sweetness with a cake-and-frosting nosefeel. With agitation and warmth, savory nuttiness emerges and rounds out with the alcohol, suggesting hazelnut liqueur. Taste features more big caramel punctuated by spices--cinnamon, nutmeg. Very sweet but never cloying; root beer sweetnesses meld with the spice (and hops?) into sassafras, a taste that I just really like. Body a bit thin but well-carbonated; a firmness to the spicy yeast and again somewhat pastryish with a leafy finish. A real fine drinkability, at once rich and refreshing; perhaps more of a cool-weather warmer than a truly wintry brew. At the $3.50 I paid for a pint, this was a bargain. I will seek this again.

Poured a dark copper body with a two-finger head that died slowly and left little lacings. A sweet malt smell, a mix of sugary stuff and caramel. A very sweet taste in a thick and heavy, somewhat syrupy beer. Still goes down smooth and creamy, as I would say there is caramel, honey, gum and maybe butterscotch mixed in with hints of dark fruit (not so much tropical) and very minor hop presence to balance the beer. Finishes with a dry, crisp yet thick and smooth mouthfeel; definitely a sipper. Great beer and one of the better dopplebocks I have tried.

A - Dark mahogany brown with some dark brown and ruby hues on the edges. Large, creamy, frothy, fizzy, light beige head with decent retention with a thin film of lace left.

S - Dark malt with slightly burned caramel and molasses along with a touch of bready malt. Slight tartness with some date, raisin, and prune. Smells like a sweet molasses cookie with some dates in it.

T - At first there is a touch of slightly roasted dark malt with some caramel and molasses. This provides a sweet base for the dark fruit that comes up a bit later. Dates, prunes, and raisins provide a sweet sticky taste along with an increase in the molasses taste. The fruit also has a very subtle tartness and there is a faint hoppy bitterness that comes out. Overall, like the aroma, it reminded me a bit of a molasses cookie with chunks of date in it, or a sticky dark fruit molasses syrup. Finishes with a touch of spice (particularly pepper).

M - Full to medium body with moderate carbonation. Rich with a slight creaminess that becomes more sticky toward the finish.

D - Decent drinkability. The sweetness brings it down a bit, but it is enjoyable to drink and doesn't kill the palate. A nice beer to sip that I would enjoy every now and then.

Notes: Best before 13/09/10. Well made and a solid example of the style. A fairly sweet beer that made for a nice sipping beer. I enjoyed drinking this, although I wasn't necessarily blown away, rather just continually pleased. Worth trying as it is a tasty beer and a good Doppelbock.

Tucher Bajuvator poured a dark brown with a nice tan head. The smell was very sweet, hints of chocolate and the faint hint of hops. Taste was of sweet chocolate. Mouthfeel was good, with good carbonation. Drinkability was good, but with all doppelbocks, you have to be careful with the high ABV. Overall I thought this was a very good doppel. Very flavorful. A beer I will seek out again.

Got this at Bert's Bierhuis in Utrecht.

Into a beer mug.

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger medium looking fluffy off-white head that quickly pops and fades down to a thin film. Colour is a dark brown, kind of burnt umber with rust hues. Some carbonation evident. A thin ring of film remains and leaves a bit of splotchy lacing on the glass. A bit better than the norm.

SMELL: A mild nose of toasted and caramel malts. A touch of toffee and some dark fruits as well, such as plumbs and grapes. A nice nose, but a little too mild to be really noticeable.

TASTE: This was much more impressive. A bold and pronounced taste profile including toasted and caramel malt with hints of sweet toffee up front. Some plumbs, raisins and dark grapes round out the middle, along with a touch of nuts as well. A bit of hop bitterness at the end with hints of pure chocolate as well. The bitter-sweet aftertaste is strong and long lasting. Maybe the best taste profile I've had in the style so far. Good stuff.

PALATE: Medium-full body, thick and creamy smooth with medium carbonation. Goes down smooth with a slight bit of a scratch at the end and finishes with a touch of stickiness. Pretty nice.

OVERALL: A great doppelbock for sure; drank away very easily. Perhaps the best taste profile as of yet, but unfortunately the weak nose held it back a tad in the ratings. This is one I'll be picking up again for sure. Recommended.

Picked this bottle up in Chicago.

Pours medium brown with a bit of a garnet hue to it. Good off-white head with a touch of lacing around the edges. Bubbly cap on top as it settles down. Nose is really quite nice with a good amount of sweetness along with some toffee, caramel, and fruit character. The flavor isn't quite as impressive. It lost a bit of the sweetness from the nose and also has a noticeable level of bitterness. Mouthfeel is really nice and I like the overall level of sweetness in this. Slightly bitter. Drinks quite well; glad drabmuh was looking for this and I was able to pick it up, as it's quite good.

This beer pours a clear dark brown color with ruby highlights. A nice tan head slowly dissolves to a thick sheet on the surface. The aroma is spicy with notes of orange peel, malt, and a hint of alcohol. A lot of lace clings to the sides as the glass empties, but most falls back into the beer. Each sip of this medium bodied beer is silky smooth. It's both malty and spicy with flavors of coriander, allspice, and orange peel hitting the palate first before some smoky roasted malt flavors move in. It almost reminded me of a barleywine. There's a mild bitterness at the end of each sip and a slight sour flavor is left behind.

I thought this beer was a bit flat, but full of flavor and rather drinkable for its style.

Here's a nice, medium-sized, dark yellowy/tan, noisy head. It's sitting on a deep, mahogany red/brown beer. Some arcs and spots of lacing. Woah! Pure molasses in the nose. Sweet, sweet malt. More sweet molasses in the front: yeasty, bready. Alcohol is evident when cool. Deep, deep malt fills the middle, leading to a pure malt finish. More alcohol, though it definitely fades with temp. This is an excellent malt monster: yeasty, bready... almost to the point of cheese at temp, but not in a bad way. Major cream. Awesome.

One of the better doppels, not quite in the class of Celebrator, but probably as good as any of the rest. Pours darker, ala Celebrator, and has similar chocolate-like flavor. Not as much body or taste, however. This one is hard to find around here, but I grab it every time I go by the one store that has it. Any doppel lover who hasn't tried it, seek it out.
