Had on tap at the Vetter Alt Heidelberger Brauhuas Neuenheim. This is not to be confused with their other doppelbock on tap: Vetter's 33.

Pouring an amber-brown color with a moderate head, this doppelbock packs a very strong nose. Lots of caramel malts and a bit of hops, the aroma was a little sweet, but also rotten smelling. Although this was a complex nose, it was so off putting it was downright unpleasant.

The taste was quite complex and well balanced with a hoppy mouth. This is much less malty than I usually expect from a doppelbock; there were no discernable traces of the sweet plums flavors or the German malts I traditionally associate with this variety. Considering the strong malts in the nose, this surprised me. In place of the strong malts was a greater hop presence, as well as the flavors of potato chips.

A fairly drinkable lager (if you don't spend too much time smelling it), this is a well made doppelbock, but if you are visiting Vetter's, there are enough other exceptional beers on tap that sampling this doppelbock should not be a priority.

Serving type: on-tap
