Truly one of the most delicious beers in the world. The Paulaner monks practiced making awesome double bock beer for several centuries and they definitely got it right. If you are in LA, you can find this beer at Nick's in Beverly Hills. It is the only place I have ever seen it.

This beer pours a dark brown, that looks deep mohogany when held up to the light. It has a thick brown head that fades slowly, leaving many laces.

This beer boasts a strong bready malt aroma. Is has a sweet smell. Molasses or brown sugar. It has a dark fruit aroma also. Figs or raisins. A slight chocolate aroma is also present.

This beer tastes incredable. It tastes very toasty. Bready flavors are present. Also, chocolate and toffee are mixed in. I think this beer has a perfect mix of flavors.

This beer goes down smooth, leaving a creamy, toffee like aftertaste. It is low in carbonation, but it does not detract from the beer.

I think this beer would make an excelent session beer. It is only slightly high in alcohol. The flavor is wonderful, and would probably never get old. This is definately a world class beer.

Never had a bock or dopplebock, so I figured start with the best right?

This is delicious, it pours a dark, deep, caramel color with a fingertip size head that clings to the glass. Definitely pick up on the malty, molasses smell on the nose and taste the exact smell with each sip. The flavor lingers around the mouth with almost a creamy smooth finish. Very easy to drink, very easy to love.

Poured from a bottle I bought at the local liquor store.

One of my favorites. Not everybody is into doppelbocks but if you are, this is one of the best.

Can't think of anything I don't like about this one...simply the best dopplebock I've had the pleasure to quaff! Gotta love those little plastic goat thingys...used to have a collection of them, why? I dunno. Reccomended stuff.
