This is called the American version of the beer. I've never tried the German version, but I can't imagine it being much better than this one. It pours a typical doppelbock color (resembles a rootbeer), with a pure white head that lingered throughout the glass. The taste was malty and delicious, with very little aftertaste. The high alcohol content isn't noticable: I thought that this was a 6.5-7% alcohol beer, and was very surprised to discover that this had 9%. I've never had a beer this powerful that was this drinkable. I fully recommend this beer.

500 ml bottle was poured into a mug.
Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown amber color with no vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Aww man, liquid bread baby. Caramel, toffee, lager yeast, grassy hops, raisins, figs, toasted, and bready malts.
Taste: Nice and malty like a doppelbock should be. Extremely tasty and delicious. A little warm booze too.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little chewy, some booze alcohol, low to medium carbonation, some sweetness, and like eating a meal. Very delicious.
Overall: Got to love German doppelbocks. Especially monks brewing this beer sine 1330. Cheers to the monks who brew this beer and cheers to all the other people who have had the chance to enjoy this treat of a beer.

3.73/5 rDev -4.6%

Poured two inches of cream colored head and a dark ruby body. Decent head retention: head gradually fades to a thin ribbon and leaves sparse sudsy lacing. Smell is of roasty malt and heavy on the dark fruit - some figs, some raisins. Alcohol present. Taste follows the nose. Little bit of booze comes through. Medium-bodied with light carbonation and slightly bitter-sweet. Would maybe have this beer one more time, but no more than that. Not to crazy about tasting those dark fruits in my hocks.
Serving type: on-tap
