4.25/5 rDev +6.5%
Deep reddish brown in colour with an inch of fine, medium beige foam. Good head retention. Malty aroma with a bit of alcohol, raisins and dried fruit, biscuit and toast, slight sugary character. Really nice flavour, balanced combination of aroma characteristics along with mild to moderate bitterness. Malty throughout with bready and biscuity notes, grain and dried fruit, alcohol in the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, smooth texture, mild warmth. I liked this quite a bit. Another solid beer from Jack's Abby -- they continue to impress me.

3.8/5 rDev -4.8%
a: Semi dark chestnut brown with orange edges; poured with a medium sized fizzy head.
s: Fairly strong heat, stewed raisins, hints of chocolate, toffee, and nutty malts.
t: Lots of good things going on up front; sweet bread, toffee, raisins, cocoa. Ths sharp, dry, lingering heat is a bit of a drawback.
m: Yes this is a bigger doppel, but it still comes across as a bit heavy.
o: Plenty to like here. This is more densely flavored than a typical doppel. To tbe point that I think it comes on a bit too strong. Still, I'd gladly have another.

Half liter bottle served in pint glass. Beer is reddish brown in color with a moderate tan foam. Rich malt aroma typical of the style: sweet but powerful. Flavorwise I think this hits a bunch of really nice notes. You get the typical malt bomb of a dopelbock, but first you get the nutty roasted malt flavor of an American Nut Brown, and afterwards you get a pleasant hop bitterness. I can't believe this is only 25 IBUs. The alcohol (9%) plays off the bitterness really well and you get finish which isn't at all clean, but it is tasty. There's even a little bit of sweet dark chocolate in there. This is a rough, aggressive style, but Framingham's finest have made a totally worthwhile offering.
Note that the label clearly uses the Americanized (Saxonized?) spelling "Dopplebock".

Appearance is a clean dark brown amber color with minimal head, but still has remnants of it throughout
Dark fruit, raisins, alcohol, inviting smell, not overly powerful though
Dark fruit still prominent in the flavors, with possible sweet hints at caramel and maybe chocolate, do sense the raisiny side, good spice element
Full bodied beer, smooth drinking for the abv with a slightly dry finish
Overall very tasty beer
