Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Double Vision Doppelbock is brewed with Idaho 2-Row Pale and German Munich, CaraAroma, CaraMunich and de-husked Carafa malts to an original gravity of 24 Plato (1.096 SG). The malts provide a dark leather color with ruby notes, a luxurious tan head, and a bready aroma with a hint of smoke. It is lightly spiced with Liberty hops, an American version of the noble German Hallertau Mittelfruh, and fermented with lager yeast from a monastery brewery near Munich. In the traditional manner, Double Vision is fermented cold (48 F) and lagered a full 10 weeks for smoothness. At over 8% alcohol by volume, it is a deceptively drinkable springtime warmer.

Drank this with mothman last night!

Poured with a 1.5 finger rich tan head that dissipated at a medium rate. The beer itself is a deep red amber color that is hard to see through.

Smells of roasted malts, dark fruits, and hints of chocolate and caramel.

Taste consist of roasted malts, chocolate, a slight alcohol taste, and caramel. Leaves a nice roasted malt chocolate after taste.

Mouthfeel is smooth. Medium to low carbonation.

Easy to drink, the alcohol is covered up very well. If you drink the whole 1 quart 1.8 fluid oz bottle, you will most likely be a bit tipsy. Overall a great beer, recommended.

When I first poured this beer into a pint glass, it had a huge head with a delicious smell to it, sort of like a cinnamon bun with extra brown sugar baked on top. The first sip tasted just the same; I could barely believe how good it was. Soon afterwards, a more typical doppelbock taste settled in: dark fruit, heavy malts, toasted bread. When I had another pint the next day, it was still pretty good, but it started to go a little flat by the third day after I opened it. It still tasted great though. One of the best doppelbocks I've ever had.

1 pt 9.4 fl oz bomber from FMcD's poured into a mug.

2013 version

A - Dark black with brown overtones. A two finger fluffy off white head that retains for a good amount of time.

S - Plums, vanilla, chocolate

T - More of the same as the nose, with a smattering of cherry and nuttiness. Coffee notes. The alcohol is undetectable at 8%.

M - Creamy with just a hint of carbonation on the finish.

O - A style that I thoroughly enjoy and seem to have gotten away from in the last few years. This is a solid and recommended offering.

I'm enjoying this beer on Christmas Eve. Served from a magnum bottle into a tall wheat beer glass. A moderate pour about 3/4 way full produces a billowy, rich tan, three inch head which takes awhile to settle down, leaving thick strands of froth all along the sides. The beer is a dark ruby brown (upon holding it before a strong lamp. This beer is very visually appealing.

I get some unique hoppy tones in the aroma- somewhat like a very subtle celery aroma. I also detect some obvious bready aroma-flavors. The first few sips seem very chocolaty. As the tongue becomes accustomed, dark fruits, nutty tones, and molasses-like malt flavors become more apparent. I also detect a very distinct coffee taste. Some earthy bitterness and a sharp dark fruit tang lingers on the palate, but just for a short time, and the finish is quite clean.

This is an excellent lager beer- a big beer that is quite smooth and easy drinking, yet with plenty of complexity.. I bought this magnum for about 9.99 at Henessey grocery in Butte, Montana, and consider it a good buy and a perfect beer to enjoy on a festive occasion.

2013 version

Poured out a deep, dark brown and mahogany color with a creamy, one-finger thick head. Rich malt aroma; roasted nuts and grains, toffee. Big roasted grain flavor with deep, dark fruity esters and a nifty boozy/bitter finish; hints of cocoa in the background. Heavy body, semi-sweet and smooth on the palate.

A very well-done doppelbock, combining balance and complexity superbly and creating a very tasty big lager brew. The chocolate-like background in the flavor is a real treat and gives this doppelbock a unique edge over much of the competition.

very billowy chocolate-milk-looking head, settles to fine bubbles lying on top of bigger bubbles beneath them...
smell is more like a dark brown ale, kind of nutty. kind of malty, some chalk....
taste is kind of sweet, but not a dopplebock sweet. this tastes nothing like a typical german dopplebock. it's slightly sweet at the finish with a bitter hop presence at the front.
at 8%, it's a decent brew, but it's not a dopple in my opinion. somebody got their recipes mixed up, I think.
