Notes/Commercial Description:
A dark strong interpretation of a double bock. Full bodied with a raisiny, dark fruit, slightly roasted and chewy malt character. Lagered for two months, a smooth malt character balances the high ABV of this strong beer.

Poured in a pilsner.
I wasn't expecting much despite the reviews. I was surprised. I am a fan of Ayinger Celebrator. This beer turned out to be as good with more depth.

Dark honey color with a 2+ finger head.

The aroma from the bottle and the head was excellent: dark fruit, malt. I wasn't expecting fruit in this lager- it's quite pronounced.

Mouth feel: carbonated and suit the style well.

Taste: deep malt, dark fruit, figs. The second pouring was even deeper fruit.

Another great beer by Jacks Abby. It may be one of my favorites from the brewery.

Class act !!!

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

This beer pours a dark, but mildly opaque brown body with an off-white.

Taste is thick and full bodied, but still not over the top, with a very creamy and chewy almost liquid caramel flavor and consistancy. Lots of dark malts, raisins and dark fruit flavors dominate. If I didn't know this had a lager yeast I'd swear this was a Belgian Dunkel or even quad, not a doppelbock at all. There's a mild earthy bitterness that keeps the whole thing in check, but this beer is really all about the malt. Ends with a very nice lingering big malt, almost barleywine type finish.

What a killer beer. Jack's Abby continues to blow me away with each new offering. I mean after the hop resin monster of the Kiwi Rising, this just raises the bar again. Really runs a fine line between Belgian Dunkel and German doppelbock. Just a killer slow sipping big beer.

A - A deep, smoky red after the first pour. The foam quickly dissipates and you're left with a dark amber beer.

S - Full bodied aroma of raisins. As advertised, you can tell there's a lot of time behind this beer. 'Lagered for two months"... and it's obvious. Very nice.

T - Muted carbonation compliments the malt very well. Sweet and delicious.

M - Packs a punch while not being overwhelming. Lingers and hangs with you well after a sip.

O - Exactly what I was looking for to compliment a roasted potato and steak supper. The high ABV certainly sneaks up on you... very tasty beer.

4 oz pour at Jack’s Abby in a tasting glass at cellar temperature.

L – Deep amber color with a 2-finger frothy cream-colored head. Great retention and lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles.

S – Lots of caramel, nutty, and bready malt with a hint of molasses and maple. This smells like it’s going to be fantastically sweet.

T – Sweet all the way through with caramel and bready malt, toffee, a bit of maple, and maybe some bittersweet cocoa at the finish. Very tasty.

F – Medium-bodied with good carbonation, a sticky and creamy mouthfeel, and a sweet finish.

O – This is an awesome beer and a terrific end to the tasting I did at Jack’s Abby. It is full of malts and definitely sweet but never cloying. I was really impressed with all of the beers that I’ve had from these guys. If you’re ever in MA, I highly recommend paying them a visit.

A: A dark brown pour with some dark red in it. Decent offwhite head that fades somewhat quickly. Good lacing.

S: Earthy toffee aroma. Some sweet caramel. Maybe a touch of brown sugar?

T: Wow, big earthy toffee and molasses mixture up front. Sweet, thick caramel takes over and carries out after that. No bitterness, no hint of alcohol, nothing. Just smooth and creamy decadence. As it warms I get just a hint of cocoa in there as well.

M: Perhaps the best feature of this beer (hard to believe since the taste is so good). It's like drinking silk. Super creamy and super smooth. Just slides over the tongue like pure luxury.

O: Damn, I thought they couldn't top Kiwi Rising but this is just amazing in a totally different way. Never had a doppelbock that even comes close to this beer. Very unique style too, again unlike any other beer I've had.

First Jack's Abby beer and I'm quite impressed!

Pours a very nice mahogany color with a generous head.
Has a sweet raisin/caramel smell.

Taste has a lot of depth, which blends together perfectly. There's a definite raisin/rich dark fruit sweetness that sinks into a roasted, nutty, almost smoky caramel like flavor which finishes with a nice hop balance to even it out.

This is a must try!

An 11 oz. serving at the Publick House. Reviewed from notes.

Pours black, a shade of dark chocolate. A quarter-finger tan head really lasts and lasts, great retention.

Very dessert-like aroma. Chocolate, almost like hot cocoa. There's a slightly odd cola character, but it's not terribly distracting. The deep, malt sweetness wins out here.

I really hate to describe a beer thusly, but this is sort of like a meal in a glass. This is unbelievably bready and rich, with a very prominent flavor of chocolate. It's almost like chocolate cake batter, with a slight hop bite in the finish.

The mouthfeel is phenomenal. Thick and creamy, like a milkshake. Definitely a sipper, though the ABV is basically nonexistent.

Absolutely delicious, by far my favorite beer from Jack's Abby. A perfect seasonal beer.

16.9oz bottle purchased as a single from Adams Hometown Market, Monson, MA.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1 1/2" tan head over the clear coppery brown brew. Head holds on admirably, with lasting lace. Aroma is nutty and spicy.

Taste continues the nose, nutty upfront, a peek of fruit in the middle, with chocolate and balanced bitterness through the close. Amazingly smooth mouthfeel, and so easily drinkable. Warming does creep up on you slowly. A great brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Very Nice dark Red Amber color, nice lacing with the head, overall just a very pretty beer.

Smell: Alot of Molasses, dark fruit, chard bread, roasted malt, little alcohol smell in there as well

Taste: Roasted malt, banana bread, Raisins, roasted caramel, There is a lot going on in this beer very deep flavors that come together very nicely, I can't taste any of the alcohol in this 9% beer, the leftover taste is almost like a perfectly burnt buttery sugar cookie very enjoyable

Mouthfeel: medium to heavy body, very chew, Low to medium carbonation and a bubbly sweet-syrupy mouth-feel that make this high ABV beer very easy to drink

Overall: This is a great American dopplebock. I would hold this up to some of the better German Dopplebocks

Pours a lighter fizzy 1/4 finger head that fades semi quickly, over dark ruby maroon brown colored beer with hints of ruby light coming through.

Nose has a bit of booze to kick it off (as this is poured at about 55-60 deg F, some typical esters assosciated with it. Then comes the malts, plenty of dark wheat like aromas and brown malts, a bit of a molasses and caramel like sweetness, bits of dried fruit, a slight biscuity malt aroma, and some light lager crispness.

Taste starts with darker malts actually, a dark malty flavor with a light cocoa and come caramel flavors, hint of molasses, and dark wheat flavors. Then the fruits, with light dried fig and date, fluffy and rich though. A little bit of booze comes through, warming at first but gets slightly tingly, with a touch of esters as well. I even get hints of spices like a cinnamon a little nutty like. The full body feels like it's melting in my mouth which is an interesting touch. A very slight hint of chocolate covered brandy soaked raisin adds a nice touch as it moves towards the malty finish. It stays a bit sweet on the finish, sticky as well, with more lingering malts, dark fruits, touch of cocoa, and some booze tingle.

Mouth is full bodied, decent carb, and some warming and tingly booze, but a bit sticky on the finish.

Overall pretty good, again haven't had a bad beer by them. This doesn't hint full on for most doppelbocks but a pretty good representation. Nice malts, fruits, plenty of booze which is one thing that is lacking in most doppelbocks, a full body with a lager crispness, and even some hints of darker malts like chocolate and crystal.

Picked up a bottle of this at Julio's with anticipation. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a cystal clear hazelnut hue with a nice one finger creamy head that fades to leave a dense halo.

S - Aromas are pretty nice, smells more like a dunkel instead of a dopplebock. Nice sweet malts, very earthy with some slight bitterness on the end. Nice lager yeast on the nose as well. No ABV detectable on the nose.

T - Taste is quite nice. More of the sweetness, nice carmel notes along with some dark fruits (raisins, figs). At the end a slight bitterness to round things out and keep in check. There is some slight booze but again its hidden quite nicely. An interesting merger of styles.

M - Mouthfeel is quite nice. The carbonation isnt low, its just very light. That being said, not heavy but very light on the tongue. There is some slight ABV noticeable as it warms towards 50 but for the most part the ABV is wondefully disguised.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer. Though while I enjoyed this it is not my favourite Jack's Abby offering. Still, very interesting take on a dopplebock, very nice flavours and mouthfeel.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Serving type: 16.9oz dark brown bottle. Served in a tall stein.
It pours a deep coppery amber color with a rather large foamy beige head. The lacing trickles and slides slowly down, leaving patches and webby lines behind.
Smells of plums, figs and raisins floating in dark rum mix with smells of brown bread and light whiffs of resinous, spicy hops.
The flavors are definitely malt forward. I’m thinking of rum-laced Figgy Pudding. Tastes of prunes and raisins in fresh baked bread are quite noticeable. The spicy hop bitterness does its job in keeping the malty sweetness in check, but eventually fades into a distant memory towards the end (in a good way).
At 9% ABV, Saxonator doesn’t even attempt to hide its boozy nature. You won’t be tricked with a sneaky alcoholic punch with this brew. Alcohol is present and accounted for in the smell, taste and aftertaste. It is exactly what you expect from a big, beefy Dopplebock.
What does surprise is the fluidity and gulpability of Saxonator. Looks are deceiving here. Some Dopplebocks can become a bit too thick-bodied and/or cloying in the mouthfeel. Not this one! Creamy, velvety, but very drinkable! Maybe too drinkable?

Bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from a jacks Abby snifter.

Brew poured a semi translucent amber ruby purple brownish color with a thin head that was gone quick and not much lacing at all.

Nose is toasted caramel plums, very marvel like with crystallized malts.

Taste is quite pleasant. Matches the nose with very caramel toffee biscuit and toasted crystallized malt. Some roast on the back end.

Easy drinking, abc is invisible, a bit watery in how it goes down, but bold in the flavor dept.

Overall a really nice dopple. Would definitely have this again.

Appearance: I poured this from a bottle into a Dogfish pint glass. The beer pours a lovely, dark, amber-red color. Despite being unfiltered, the beer is crystal clear. The head is tan, pours frothy, retains nicely, and has little lacing. It's a beautiful lager with a lot to say for itself before even tasting it.

Smell: The aroma has notes of molasses, fresh black bread, a subtle note of banana bread, with a slight touch of alcohol. It smells like a pristine doppelbock and also has a few hints of dark fruit and raisins.

Taste: This brew has a wonderful warm, dark, and a deep flavor profile. I get notes of coffee liqeuer, banana bread, and butter cookie on the front. These flavors give way to dark, roasty tastes of grain and raisins and then leaves a smoky aftertaste reminiscent of a porter. There is almost no hint of the high ABV and the beer warms you nicely. Perfect for a cold winter night in New England.

Mouthfeel: I would say the beer has a medium heavy body with a good bit of chewiness. It goes down so smoothly for a strong beer.

Overall: I'm starting a journey through the Jack's Abbey offerings and this is a wonderful example of what they are capable of. The Saxonator is deep, dark, roasty, complex, and smooth. There was clearly a lot of attention to detail in crafting this brew and it strikes me as an awesome rendition of a dopplebock. Overall, an excellent beer from an excellent, local brewery.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a clear dark copper with an ample light cream head. Average amount of visible carbonation.

S: Initial aroma is dark fruits such as raisin or plum with a mix of roasted and sweet malts. Real fermented fruit sort of aroma going on here with that touch of booze in the backend.

T: Balanced and very well done dopplebock. Malt is quite rich giving you both roastiness and a carmel sweetness. Low hopping which is appropriate for the style. Hints of raisin, plum and chocolate but don't overwhelm just blend nicely with the malts. Alcohol is well hidden.

M: Smooth body with low carbonation. Has a nice creaminess giving it a full body. Remains quite easy drinking considering the ABV.

Overall this one is very true to the style and a great example of a finely crafted lager. All the flavors meld nicely together and deliver a solid beer.

Pours a beautiful toasty copper brown with perfect clarity and a faint ruby blush. Fat head of tan foam that fell quickly to a thin ring. Not much lace. Nose very tempting. There's bread, sweet chocolate,caramel, dark fruits and a touch fo brown sugar. Taste is delightful with layered malt complexity on a medium body. Rich and rowdy malt shows itself off in a way that's frolicsome and fun. Caramel, bread, dark fruits, raisin, date and fig, a touch of brown sugar and a bit of soft faint chocolate and it even hints at nuts. It has laid a malt feast before you and then , like placing a single flower in a bud vase on a table, there is a touch of warmth from the alcohol to finish this crisp and dry.

Simply excellent. The body is a bit thinner than some of the german dopplebocks but with impeccable balance and with flavors that captivate this beer is contemporary and stylish.

T: Sweet, fruity, slightly sugary malt up front with a nice hoppy finish. Surprising. Flavors come out as the beer warms. A bit of booze throughout.

M: Booze covers the palate with each sip but it's pleasant and complemented by the tasty, roasted malt.

O: An American twist on a very good style. Well done. Won't be my last beer from Jack's Abby.

500ml bottle served in a pilsener glass. November 2012 indicated on the label. Pours a lovely copper hue with a fizzy, 2.5 inch tan-colored head with a translucent clarity and quite a bit of tiny bubbles effervescing in solution. Head eventually settles into a rocky, quarter inch froth with residual spots and strands of lacing adhering to the walls of the glass as the brew recedes. Nose expresses grape bubblegum and some biscuity/wheaty notes. Taste follows nose; however, not as sweet as I would have anticipated; everything present in the nose coalesces nicely and leads to a pleasant balance. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a pleasant, even carbonation and just a trace of oiliness to the texture. Overall, a very solid example of a style I'd like to see more of. Perhaps the best domestic Dunkle I've had (don't know why this is classified as a dopplebok). Alcohol is dangerously well-hidden as well. Wish these guys distributed in RI - thankfully I can easily cross the border to grab some.

500ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A: Burnt red-orange color with light brown hues. Great clarity. Creamy tan head displays awesome retention and never dips below three fingers.

S: Sweet on the nose. Brown molasses, nutty, toast and crust. Spicy alcohol. Slight figgy character.

T: Layered and complex malt flavors shift on the palate. Toast and crust begin things. Roasted chestnuts. Brown cocoa. Toasted grains. Dark caramel and brown molasses. Spicy alcohol. Very clean. Lots of toast and even a hint of roasted malts on the finish with a very slight nutty coffee impression.

M: Heavy body. Chewy and somewhat syrupy. Malty firmness. Nicely rounded. Warming alcohol. Moderate prickling carbonation.

O: This is a very enjoyable doppelbock. I wish they'd put it into a regular seasonal rotation in the early spring. Not too many doppelbocks in the American market that can compete with the quality this brings to the table.

Liquid bread is a perfect way to describe Doppelbocks to someone who has never had a doppelbock. As for describing The Saxonator, I would call it liquid raisin bread toast.

A- Deep dark amber. With a white head.

S- Wheat and raisin bread toast.

T- Taste sits on the back and sides of the tongue. Raisins followed by a buttery wheat toast taste and finished with a little spice.

M- This beer fills the mouth and provides a very filling feeling. I like how the carbonation lingers on the tongue with a buttery toast taste.

O- I enjoyed this a lot. I remember having raisin bread toast with butter for breakfast before going to church during lent and this is really took me back.

Pours a slightly chill hazed reddish brown color with a fluffy beige head that persists forever. Caramel, molasses, dark burnt sugars and dark dried fruits, its a malt heads wet dream. Very light aromas of earthy hop provides almost no balance. The flavor is malty and rich with all of the aforementioned aromas playing a part in the flavor. Heavy molasses with a hint of smoke dominates the flavor while the other tastes add character. Rich sweet and frigging smooth. Medium to thick body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly syrupy mouthfeel. Great Americanized version of a dopplebock.

The beer comes in a dark reddish mahogany color.

The aroma is very fruit forward and different for the style. It has rummy raisins, plums figs, cherries. An obvious lager yeast. A breadiness and candy sweetness as well.

The flavor follows with those fruits in the front. There’s a light brown sugar and caramel sweetness in the middle. It’s not a sweet beer for the style, nor is it big on toasty bready notes that is familiar of other doppelbocks. There’s a mineral lager yeast note throughout. In the finish, there’s a huge breadiness of rugbrød. It has this substantial, dense rye and whole wheat breadiness instead of doughiness that most Americans are familiar with.

It is different for the style without the big sweet bready and toasty malts, but instead with lots of fruit flavors. The alcohol is dangerously well hidden and it is still delicious.

T-taste is similar to the smell but a bit stronger. Rich malts dominate and gives this beer a chewy quality, sweet caramel, raisins, and a spicy alcohol finish.

M-full body, good carbonation

Overall a really nice mouthfeel, full and creamy, and pretty good tasting too. My first offering from Jack's Abby, I look forward to trying more in the future.
