Pours nearly black with two fingers of khaki head. Good retention and lacing. Notes of roasted, nutty malts, molasses, and dark fruit. Flavor profile is rich and malty, with notes of roasted, nutty malts, molasses, dark fruit, and plum. Very pleasant to sip. Mouth feel is smooth, filling, and a medium-thick consistency. Overall, a fantastic classic beer that provides plenty to think on and savor.

Served in a 0.5L Celebrator glass at Grünauer.

Brown on the pour black in the glass. Light tan head. The smell is of honey and sweet sauce (sort of like soy sauce). Taste of honey with spice followed by an earthy malt flavor. Mouthfeel is full and slick. Overall, a satisfying and well rounded beer.

“Finest Bavarian Double Bock” is right! There is nothing wrong with this beer, it’s perfect. Nutty, creamy, smooth as silk. Beer can’t get any better than this.

Deep, deep dark brown with a fluffy, heavily tanned head. Roasty malts and sweetness are followed by a slight alcohol heat on the nose. One of the darkest and most flavorful lagers I've ever had. Delicious notes of licorice, dark roasted malts, and chocolate. One of my favorite aspects to this beer is how the slightly effervescent carbonation and lager mouthfeel serve to allow the flavors to punch through. Classic.

A - Pours dark brown with a three finger foamy tan head. Light amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is molasses, toasted bread, chocolate and and dark fruits.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Chocolate, molasses, brown sugar and dark fruits throughout with a light bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with nice soft finish.

O - A great Doppelbock. Full of rich delicious flavors. Extremely drinkable.
