Duckstein Dopplebock is a wonderful full aromatic and tasty beer. It has a bit of bittery aftertaste but is overally a really good beer. I really think that after a hot day this beer will really quench your thirst and be a nice afternoon beer to relax with before dinner. It might be a bit filling as it is really rich.

Pours a dark murky red colour, with lovely dense beige head. Retains a thin crown with great sticky lace. Looks fantastic.

Dark, but also pretty sour on the nose. Plummy fruit with black cherry gives a dark, slightly sour character. Not much else; for 7.8% I expected more maltiness.

Taste has more in the way of malt. Mostly toasty with a charcoaly touch, hint of wood smoke on front. Develops fruity notes on mid with black cherry and slight pomegranate tang before finishing with slight espresso bitterness. Really could have been sweet, it feels overattenuated so the flavours are ultimately a bit muted.

Full, decent texture, but again I wouldn't complain if it were thicker and stickier.

Not a bad beer, but it just leaves me wanting more. Doppelbock is licence to go big, bold and Gothic.
