a re-review. pours out a clear, and beautiful burgandy color. some head at first but quickly subside to nothing....minimal lace. quite a sweet caramel malt aroma. boozy goodness. lots of malty stickiness in flavor. very sweet. a touch of spiciness that rides the smooth and creamy mouthfeel. quick to light a fire in the belly and brain. not as impressive as previously thought. somewhat enjoyable nonetheless. a perfect choice for "doppelbock chili". i really ratcheted my scores down from my first review due to advancing beer wisdom. a beer i'll revisit at times.

Pours viscous. Clear deep mohagony color. No head. Just a very slight edging that leaves minimal lace. Nothing special on the nose to note. Pretty average in the aroma department. The taste is better than the appearance and nose. Nice deep malty profile. Some roasted tones underlying. Nice thick body. Syrupy to an extent. I know dopples are sweet beers, but this is one of the sweeter ones I've run across. Not cloying though. Pretty nice taste. Good effort on this one.

Pours a vibrant dark amber....no lace to speak of...nose is big on the malt (sweet dark fruits and some alcohol)...I really like the flavor of this but it is not intensely flavored like say S.A. Doppel....rather it is a relatively easy drinking malt loaded dopple...the carbonation is so low, this seems easier drinking that it should be...dark fruits dominates the flavor...it is very smooth and not too sticky in the mouth....almost a bit creamy...make that very creamy for this style....I wish this had a bit more carbonation....it really seems on the bad side of average for its firmness of body...alcohol also bites a little on the buds which you'd expect....Overall, this is an above average american doppelbock....I'd put it in the same category as Schells....this doesn't rate at the top of the doppel list but is on that next rung in my opinion..

This German-style lager pours a deep red copper color with no lasting head. The aroma is very sweet with an extra sweet bit of dark malt on top. The flavor consists of a honey sweetness coupled with a cara-malt presence. The finishing layer is of maple and oak on top of a medium body. Not bad.

Interesting beer. Pours out to a nice brown color in the glass. Light fruity smell. Nice taste of caramel with a decent hop bitterness at the end. The alcohol in this one sneaks up on you. I felt a little buzz going after one. I'd drink this again.

An all around choice bier...a solid candidate for an American doppelbock.
Throws a deep, rich ruby color with a surprisingly creamy, lasting head. Actually, this is one of the creamiest doppels I've had....yet pretty low carbonation in the body.
Smells like a good DB should...dark fruit, sort of raisiny. And hugely malty.
Taste follows suit with some big raisin bread flavors. Malty, and tasty. Quite sweet. A touch of hop bitterness keeps this from becoming too much.
A surprising winner here. Not among the elite of the style, but quite nice nonetheless.

This beer has plenty of eye appeal, with a dark reddish brown color and a moderate head with lots of lace. Very strong roasted malt and caramel flavors, slightly sweet, with moderate hoppiness at the finish and a solid malty aroma . Incredibly smooth, rich mouth feel, the low carbonation compliments this beer. Simply put, this is a superb double bock.

The second good American doppelbock I've had in the last six weeks (Saxer Jack Frost was the first). Nice dark color with a decent head that leaves a fair amount of lace down the glass. Sweet malty nose and palate with just enough of a hop balance to stay on style. Medium to heavy body that really hides the alcohol content -- is it really 7.9%? I'm going to have to take back what I've said about American lagers . . .

Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with a blurb about the beer on the back label ... the "enjoy with the first four months of date" is cleary notched.

Appearance: Deep dark redish brown ... almost ruby in colour with a well retaing tan lace.

Smell: Rich robust malty nose with a heavy hand of alcohol also.

Taste: Big fat chewy malt mouth feel with a semi slick creamy feel to it. Smooth carbonation ... a bit to under carbonated for our liking. Lots of toasted and toffee malt flavours with a small pinching hop bitterness that balances just enough while the sweetish alcohol seem to warm the body with no problem. Lots more toasted malt character in the finish with hints of carob and dark bread.

Notes: Wow ... nice work on this one. Other than the carbonation being a tad to low, this makes for a great Double Bock with its massive malt backbone ... no off flavour detected. Certainly goes down as one of the best American brewed Double Bocks also.
