2.77/5  rDev -25.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Look- quite dark, zero clarity. Little head; faint white lacing when first poured

Smell- Sweet sweet sweet! Malty and alcohol scent. No hop smell

Taste- Sweet alcohol taste- tastes like it smells. Light toffee, cane sugar and caramel tones on the aftertaste

Feel- Very little carbonation, strong and pleasant alcohol taste along with the malts

Overall- Strong and dark . Not great

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

Dark reddish-brown with a thin and fizzy tan froth.

Aroma of faint gum, grain and black grape.

This one is super sweet with molasses, black grape and burnt sugar. Almost cloying, but not quite.
Medium with noticeable alcohol heat but not overwhelming.

Always love to come upon a new Doppelbock on the shelf, but might pass over this one next time. Then again, I might not.

Pours a clear, mahogany color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong sweet malt, strong alcohol, strong caramel malt, adjunct, and pale malt. Fits the style of a Doppelbock. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong sweet malt, strong alcohol, strong caramel malt, adjunct, hint of wheat, hint of raisin, hint of floral hops, and pale malt. Overall, weak appearance, decent aroma, good complexity and feel, and a decent blend, but the body is lacking due to the adjunct.

Dark amber hue for color paired with a soft malt aroma. Following this is a caramely flavor accompanied by an extremely smooth body. Overall this is a really great traditional doppelbock, first of which I have ever had from Austria.

Nice looking beer. Very dark brown with an inch of slightly off white foam. Minimal lacing.

Smells of toffee, bread, dark fruits. It's not all sweet. There's more than a hint of bitterness.

The taste is bready, has toffee with some mild pitted fruit, kinda sweet but not when compared to the brewer' s other offerings. To me, this is sort of bland.

Medium body, fairly light carbonation, feeling all of the 8.5% abv.

Not my favourite from this brewery.

Poured into dimpled seidel. Fizzes, no head. Dark ruby brown.

Nose of dark fruit, sweet bread. Malt.

Taste: A little smoky, but not very roasted. Dark fruit. Dried cherries. Clovey hops.

Bold but not overbearing mouth feel.

A heavy, masculine beer. For fans of Eisbock, Dunkelweizen, Weizenbock, Imperial Oktoberfest, scotch ale, and doppelbocks.

The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a dark, slightly reddish brown with a 1/4" light than head that soon recedes to a ring of foam and a think layer of foam. Sipping creates some scattered patches of foam that slide down the side leaving a few small speckles behind.

The aromas include some carmel and a dark fruit like plum or fig.

The flavors include a rich sweet caramel, some of that dark fruit and a bit of grassy, herbal character from the hops.

The mouthfeel is on the full side of medium bodied with light carbonation. The finish begins as the intitial caramel sweetness faces to let the dark fruit emerge. The fruit then begins to fade as the slight herbal bitterness moves to the back of the palate before fading away.

For me this has been an OK beer, but is not one I'll be seeking out again. There are other doppelbocks I prefer, including some brewed locally. In particular this one has, at one point, too much sweetness and the flavors don't seem particularly well integrated.

Dark brown with a ruby tinge. A little fine stream of carbonation. Topped with 1 fingers of light beige head.

Caramelized sugar, malt, creme brulee, egg yolk.

Malt, toasted malt and burnt caramel. Quite sweet with a lightly burnt finish.

Heavy, syrupy body, little fine carbonation.

Got at Cent Fest in Chiang Mai. Quite good for the style. Not super well rounded, but fair.

Initial aroma indicates a mix of a traditional doppelbock with an off smelling, deep metallic additive. Mild head, quite dark brown color, average carbonation. A little bit sweet for a doppelbock...stick to the back of the palate a bit (syrupy). Not sure I understand all the differences between doppel and dunkel to get a gist for the flavor mixing, but they both are based primarily on Munich malt with little hop presence (YEA !, Take that all you hop heads !).

An OK beer, a but little too sweet to become much of a favorite.

Bottle from Brewers haven. Rich and roasty with some molasses sweetness. Appearance is lacking, dull head, but that’s the only bad marks against this brew. Classic doppelbock.

Pours with a redish hew, small tam.head leaves quickly. Dark brown body. Smell is malty bit roasty. Mouthfeel is dry light nice carbonation. Flavour is complex, small alcohol taste and a little roasty.do taste a slight bittering almost like that of a coffee to the end. Overall a great social beer that ill look to enjoy again. Session dopplebock will be a yes to me.
