Bayern Doppelbock is a decent representation of the style, not spectacular like Ayinger Celebrator but a good accessible beer especially here in Montana. I'm not sure why any Micros here in the US have not come close in this style to Celebrator. This one is above average though.

This beer pours very dark, head is average with little lacing. Carbonation is almost non existent. Smell is not pronounced, but there is a hint of cherry. Mouthful is pleasant and light. Taste is smooth and silky good in my opinion. Drinkability is pretty low due to the very evident alcohol bite to it which detracts from the overall experience.

If you see it at your local store pick a 6er up and try it.

My first from this brewery, from the bottle.
Pours a dark ruby red with a small wispy beige head that leaves lacing and bubbles.

Smell is slightly muted with molasses, caramel, toast, and dark fruits.

Taste is a mediocre blend of dark fruit and brown sugar.

Feel keeps this one from being a complete failure as its well carbed and has a nice slickness that compliments its average taste.

Overall there nothing really wrong with this beer its just rather bland and average.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

I waited twelve long months for this beauty to come my way again.

A: A deep and dark, yet clear mahogany with a thin milky head. Lacing is minimal.

S: Not too much here. Roasted malt comes through the most.

T: A dark fruitiness fades into a super malty roasted flavor. God, is it good. Very bold, but not too much so.

M: Pretty thick, but with a wine-esque acidity. A very sticky aftertaste isn't my favorite thing.

O: Man o man, is this stuff excellent. I'm a huge fan of bocks, so this is right up my alley. No shortage of great beers in Montana, but this one is special.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Dark, dark amber. Not quite black, still slightly translucent. Doesn't leave any sticky irregular foam. The foam is silky and thin and drifts down the glass.

S: Nice and light. Just a hint of sweet roast, very mild and clean.

T: Starts off with a bit of tanginess which fades quickly to sweet red fruit flavor which is balanced out with a mild roast. Very nicely balanced; nothing stands out as too bold or overbearing.

M: Nice mouthfeel except for a lingering roast aftertaste. Possibly a bit thick for my taste, but easily can overlook that for the amount of alcohol it's that's in there.

O: Excellent winter warmer. Very nicely balanced. Great soft flavor, but still a deep rich mouth filling beer. You would never know this beer delivered 8% alcohol.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- pours with a thin surface head and a dark red-brown tone

Smell- mild noble hop tones with lightly toasty malt character, very mild mannered overall

Taste- sweet bread with nice yeastyness, mellow hop and malt isn't as sweet as i normally find doppelbocks

Mouthfeel- medium bodied with crisp bite on the end

Overall- a good standard version of a German classic, nothing super spectacular or over the top

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a half finger light tan head that dissipated quickly to a thick film and ring around the glass. Light aroma of caramel malt, dark dried fruit. Flavor is caramel and bready malt, dried fruit, nuts and a hint of rye bread. Finishes malty with light hop bitterness. A very nice flavor profile. Medium bodied. Great malt flavor with other interesting flavors. I liked this quite a bit.
