Nice beer. I am a fan of this style and I think it's a good representation of it. I don't think it is quite as good as Celebrator, but it is definitely good.

I think it is lacking in smell and appearance,but it excels in all the other categories.

I would buy this again.

Einbecker Winter Bock is a wonderful beer although a bit too bitter for my taste. I prefer their Mai Bock as it is a little bit sweeter. The smell of this beer is wonderful and it seems almost a waste to drink it up. If you pour it into a glass its color cannont be duplicated. It has a wonderful rich malty taste for doppelbock.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear garnet in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense beige colored head that died down rather quickly, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Sweet aromas of brown bread with raisins are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is rather malty and slightly sweet with flavors of brown bread and dark fruits along with some notes of caramel and nutty malts. There are no traces of bitterness from the underlying hops but there's enough of them to keep this from being overly sweet.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and rather smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite drinkable compared to other beers in the style because it isn't as full-bodied and filling and no traces of alcohol are perceptible in the taste.

A - I assume this is only a few months old since I got no sediment, a rocky fully inch of opaque colored head, and a nice deep clear brown beer.

S - Some mild grain skunk and fairly sweet oaky dark fruit goodness. I love some sweet dopplebock's

T - Not bad it has a good amount of caramel malt, some chocolate and a hint of dark fruits. Simply, tasty, well hidden ABV.

M - Has a mild grainy hint which I assume is skunkness from the bottle but other than that it's fairly smooth and medium bodied.

Overall I got this on discount from $3.50 (paid 2 dollars) and I was pleasantly surprised of it's smooth light flavors and well hidden ABV. A very solid dopplebock.

Green bottle! What the hey.
Malt forward with soft melanoidins and a quiet toast character. Soft fruit too. Solid start.
Very clear and a nice copper/red color. Smallish darkish head that settles out quickly, but it does leave some dipping lacing that disappear in short order.
Fruitiness on the flavor, yum. Soft melanoidins again and the same with toast. No hops to speak of. Moderate drying. Alcohol is subdued in flavor but creates a warmness in the gut.
A little bigger than moderate in feel, but the low carbonation provides a creaminess and softness.
A good standard doppelbock. Quite rich, really. The flavors and good and the richness pushes a slower drinking experience.

Very nice traditional authentic German doppelbock. All about the malt, this beer is from the brewery/city that claims to have invented Bock beer....

Has a nice head, but it goes away fairly quickly... No hops at all in the aroma--all dark caramel malt. Thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel... A deep, rich, smooth, rather profound taste. Reminds me of Paulaner Salvator or Ayinger Celebrator...but, sadly with no "__ator" suffix.

Definitely a fine beer, not to be missed by German beer connoisseurs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: From a unique green bottle is a deep amber colored beer with not much head.

Aroma: Figs, brown bread, raisins, light toffee notes, grape, faint banana.

Taste: Heavy malts in the front, raisins, traces of molasses, figs, dark bread, floral hop but mostly a malty backbone. The finish does have a light smokiness.

Notes: It's very drinkable a good one to warm up with. Cheers.
