Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very malty, some caramel. Taste is good, malts, caramel, some fruits, very flavorful. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall be careful with this abv, this beer is very easy drinking and quite good.

330ml Bottle poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Dark reddish brown with an initial tan head of about a 1/2” that recedes to about a 1/16” cap. Nice lacing.

Smell: Roasted bready malts dominate the nose.

Taste: Balanced between roasted malt bitterness and a caramel sweetness. This beer has the distinctive caramel notes of a lager which really define this doppelbock. The best way to describe the flavor is toasted (almost burnt) caramel. Pleasant and an excellent example of the style.

Mouthfeel: Nicely carbonated which makes this beer seem on the dry side with a mildly bitter finish.

Overall: Very good example of a Doppelbock, very flavorful.

Pours a dark black brown with creamy white head into a brandy snifter glass. Tastes of roasted dark malts, with chocolate and dark fruit notes in the finish. Very smooth body and decent mouthfeel overall. Not a bad beer as i'm quite new to the doppelbocks.

Pours a dark brown. Light orangy-reddish tint. Decent amount of light brown head. Looks pretty solid. Smells a bit bland. Light roast, yeast, some sweet fruit as well. Tastes similar. Nice light roast, yeast, sweet dark fruits. Really nice flavour profile. I can't believe I hadn't tried this before! Its really enjoyable. Well carbonated. Good mouthfeel. Overall very solid

An old standby favorite for me and a confirmed classic of the style. Love the plastic goat on a string. This one made a nice tailgate beer a week ago for me at the Giants game!

A dark brown beer with red highlights. Semi-clear. Good sized tan head with strong lacing.

Aroma is richly malty, bready, with traces of dark fruit notes and booze. Nutty, caramel, raisins, fruitcake spiciness.

Taste follows the nose…it’s all in there. Very bready, spicy, and malty, with a subdued sweetness and booziness. Complex. Lots of flavors swirling around. Caramel, biscuits, fruitcake and all the attendant tastes: raisins, prunes, dates, alcohol. Low levels of hop bitterness underneath nevertheless cut through just enough to give it some definition.

Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation, a touch of sticky chewiness, and a fairly clean finish overall.
A truly great doppelbock.
