BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Grand Teton Brewing Co.
Idaho, United States
grandtetonbrewing.com

Style: Doppelbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Double Vision Doppelbock is brewed with Idaho 2-Row Pale and German Munich, CaraAroma, CaraMunich and de-husked Carafa malts to an original gravity of 24 Plato (1.096 SG). The malts provide a dark leather color with ruby notes, a luxurious tan head, and a bready aroma with a hint of smoke. It is lightly spiced with Liberty hops, an American version of the noble German Hallertau Mittelfruh, and fermented with lager yeast from a monastery brewery near Munich. In the traditional manner, Double Vision is fermented cold (48 F) and lagered a full 10 weeks for smoothness. At over 8% alcohol by volume, it is a deceptively drinkable springtime warmer.

Rich aroma of baked bread, raisins, caramel. The flavor has more toffee and a hint of cocoa and roast, but dried fruits follow and then mild spicy hops balanced out the finish. Big flavors and aroma here, but the body isn't too thick (though it's heavier than many). This is a great doppel.

Pours into a half liter stein a deep dark chocolate brown with a tinge of ruby,a clingy beige head atop.Dark fruit and smoke stand out most in the nose along with some baked pizza dough although that is not as big as the smoke and fruit.Tastes of prunes dipped in syrup along with deep coffee roast and caramel wich lingers.Very chewy and bready in the feel,just fantastic it compliments the beer greatly.One of the more hefty doppelbock's I have had,big thick and bready this is a damn fine beer.

I am drinking this at 1 year and 4 months old.
A: Deep dark brown under a creamy 2” finely bubbled light tan foam collar that produces good lace.
S: The nose is molassesy with dark sugar and dark bread.
T: Heavy dark sugar flavors, pepper, some prune in the middle with light hops on the end but this is all about dark sugary malts.
F: Creamy smooth, full body to chewy, medium low carbonation.
O: This is a big full bodied doppelbock that is sweet just short of cloying.

I had this in a 64 oz growler I had filled at Total Wine. When I poured my first pint of this beer into a pint glass, it had a huge head with a delicious smell to it, sort of like a cinnamon bun with extra brown sugar baked on top. The first sip tasted just the same; I could barely believe how good it was. Soon afterwards, a more typical doppelbock taste settled in: dark fruit, heavy malts, toasted bread. When I had another pint the next day, it was still pretty good, but it started to go a little flat by the third day after I opened it. It still tasted great though. One of the best doppelbocks I've ever had.

As a matter of fact, editing this review years later, I would still say that this is the BEST doppelbock I've had. Ayinger Celebrator and Weihenstephaner Korbinian are also incredible beers, but they didn't have quite as delicious of flavors as this one. If you see this beer on tap anywhere at a bar, and/or available for growler fills, or in bottles, I highly, HIGHLY recommend that you buy it. It is incredibly good.

This beer pours a deep brown with an average head and good lacing. The aroma features a lot of chocolate as well as prunes, dates, craisins, something a bit vegetal, butterscotch, dried cherry, toffee and raisins. The flavor is again dominated by a supple chocolate flavor, with lots of dark, raisinated fruits, toasted almonds, butterscotch, candied cherry, and butted toast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very supple and smooth, with a fair amount of sharp, small bubble carbonation. Overall this is an outstanding beer - rich but not sweet, inherently complex and bold, yet so easy drinking as well.
