I've quickly become a strong advocate of this brew...historically speaking (yes, im getting philosophical on beer) I've been a dogfish and victory brewing fan, more recently acquainted with Stoudt's brewery based out of PA. Since I discovered Stone Brewing out of san diego, ca they have quickly infiltrated by favorite brews/breweries....not to forget my local new england favorite/stalwart Berkshire Brewing Co.

anyways, enough of getting off topic...Tommyknocker's Butthead Doppelbock is an outstanding brew. this one is *very* smooth (if you aren't aware of the ABV, be careful!). this one is deceptively drinkable given its ABV due to the fact that it is beyond smooth. this one is a malty brew, not a hoppy one...and on that note it is a darn good one.

Compare this to Dogfish Head's Raison D'etre (admittedly, both have reached my personal hall of fame)...this one I believe is more balanced (but some aren't looking for that!)

Overall, outstanding beer from a solid brewery...their Pick Axe Pale ale is also really good, its got the hops and also just the right hidden sweetness, their maple brew was pleasant but not memorable....I know they have others (which I have not tried).

Overall, I fully recommend this brew, and even if you dont like it (ie, its not your style), this brewery is well worth exploring given what i've seen thus far.

A- Dark mahogany with a slight haze, quarter finger haze.

S- Deep rich malts with hints of roast and dried fruit.

T- Caramel and light rum raisin notes. This is also complimented by toasted and chocolate notes. Finishes sweet and smooth.

M- Full bodied and rich.

D- I'll be looking for more.

Mmmm... tasty

Small capped bottle, poured into a snifter.

Very dark brown, with multiple red overtones, and a nice tan head with good retention and lacing.
A very pleasant and powerful malty nose, sugary, with caramel and also some alcohol hints.
Full bodied, chewy, heavily malted, with layers of caramels, toffee and chocolate, and a reasonably well disguised but still present alcoholic warmth.
Very impressive dopple bock, one of the best american version I have seen, if not the best. Easy to drink for such a heavy brew.
I will definitely have more of this.

Rich Aroma! Rich Taste! Malt is very well-balanced with a toasted nutty tone. Hop taste is a light and grassy delivery. The white frothy head diminshed quickly but didn't completely disappear. Reddish Brown color with moderate weight. This is a truly delicious beer with moderate sweetness at first with a slightly bitter finish but very clean. This is a winner, especially at the price. (about 1.60 a bottle at a national liquor store)
