500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.69):
Dark brown with a finger-sized, foamy head that is tan brown & holds well with some nice lacing too.

Sweet & loaded with caramel malts and chocolate notes upfront. A typical bock aroma but a good one at that with some figs and prunes coming through alongside a few subtle hops.

Sweet with strong caramel malts that mirror the nose well, along with some lighter chocolate & darker fruits that include some prunes, figs and raisins. There is also some roasted malts & the beer is quite rich with a hint of bitterness & a warming, boozy finish.

Smooth & full bodied with light carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel that goes down well. There is a lot of sweetness to this one although it manages not to overpower or completely dominate things thankfully and there is a touch of bitterness at the end.

Very filling and chocolaty beer with a fair amount of sweetness. Smooth with a good combination of roasted and sweet malts & although some was noticeable, the alcohol content was well blended with the beer & came as a welcome addition in this case.

A - slightly darker than your typical bock out of the light; a dark brown more akin to a stout than a bock; yet under the light there is a distinct ruby hue to the beer. Really nice head (three fingers) which filled the rip of my stange with a nice eggshell color. Very attractive beer.

S - Smell was not overt; malty with a hint of molasses; a very earthy smelling beer. Not the deepest smelling bock, but solid.

T - not an overly complex taste, but a very nice malty taste hinted with dark fruits, molasses, and an almost coffee-like ending. Unlike some bocks, which err on the side of sweetness, this Asam-Bock is quite balanced and remains so throughout the entire beer.

M - slight carbonation, really great texture and thickness, slight residue of sugar.

O - to be honest, a really great beer. For those who enjoy a sweeter bock, this will not be your cup of tea, for those looking for a nice mix of sweet fruits and depth, this is definitely a beer you'll want to try. Definitely a re-drink.

Poured from 500ml glass into 400ml Radeburger branded seidel.

Appearance: Pours a dark amber-brown color with a large brown-tinted white head that dissipates slowly and yields some small spots of lace.

Smell: Sweet caramel malt is dominant with plum notes and just a hint of grassiness.

Taste: Begins with plum and grape flavors, rounding out to sweet caramel and brown sugar. Finish is still mostly sweet with more bready notes.

Mouthfeel: Thicker body with light carbonation and a slick finish.

Overall: A great doppelbock- surprised I have never heard of this one before. Worth it.

heck of a dark bock here, really is. and like most german stuff, or I should say much german stuff, the price is outstanding for the quality. my second beer from this brewery, and I like it better than the first. very dark color to this, looks brown but glows the deepest of ambers when held to a bright light. the head is magnificent, like something sam smiths would do in their Yorkshire squares, and I mean that as a compliment to the germans. lacey and rising and bubbly and thick and lasting and it makes an outstanding beer moustache. like nearly perfect in my mug. the nose is quite sweet from the dark malts, notes of red earth and smoke too, complex and dark, wintery, but I smell lager yeast too, making it a little cleaner than a winter warmer type of ale. the flavor is of course malt forward, and there is an astringency to it that doesn't come from alcohol, grassy and hard to place, but almost smells like the kind of fermentation you get when vegetables sit on the counter for too long. pleasant though, in a really organic sort of way. the finish is cleaner, sweet, and robustly roasted, a glorious combination. I just wish it had as much body as it does flavor. carbonated well enough and very satisfying, save for a want of more body. its knit picking though with such a fine glass of beer. as authentic as they come, and one I will go back to at this price (in the 4 dollar neighborhood).

A very dark cola brown to blackish doppelbock with a pungent sweet aroma and decent amount of brown head to match. Dried dark fruits dominate both smell and taste, raisins, dried currents, dates, prunes ... Combined with the bread in the malt one gets a fig or date newton effect. Also present are treacle toffee and dry chocolate flavors to add a lower end to all those fruit effects riding up top. Very heavy sweet finish with some alcohol to yield a brandy effect. Not hoppy or particularly bitter. Some doppelbocks are less sweet and yield more complexity but I am not complaining.

A: Dark mahogany, almost opaque, small tanned head which disappeared quickly. S: Raisins, molasses, dark chocolate. T: Raisins, prune, dark chocolate, sweet molasses come through as it warms, booze well hidden, hint of burned caramel at the finish. M: smooth, thick but not overly heavy. Minimal carbonation. O: Very well made dopplebock, a sipper, could have used a touch more bitterness but hard to find fault.
