Why drink anything less than 5. I been drinking this beer since I was a kid. It is better than most porters and the cost makes it an easy choice.

Not bitter. No burned malt. I hate burned malt.

taste: chocolate, a little caramel, brown sugar, Toasted bread (a toasty roasty type). Smooth and sweet. Odd finish but it could be a year old bottling too?????
feel is not bad, not all that thin for cheap 5.5% beer

I have had this beer many times in the past, don't see it around as much as you used too. 3.64/5

One of my favorite beers. I had just begun experimenting with bock beers when I came upon this. Back then it $5.60 for a case of 24 with a $2.40 deposit on the bottles.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours darker red, almost black, with a small off white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of darker grain, with nice sweet fruit notes. Tastes of sweet grain and slight fruit. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a good beer.

Dark brown body, slight half finger white head. Aroma of caramel malts and sugar. Taste is sweet malt dominated,burnt sugar, very little bitterness. Mouthfeel is very sweet, slightly sour. Too sweet for my tastes and not what I expect in a bock

Pours a reddish brown color with a little white head. Smell is of faint bread. The taste is on the malty side, with very little hops. Mouthfeel, is nice and refreshing, and easy to drink. Overall, was great for a summer day.

I got a 12pck of this beer whilst in La Cross after dropping my daughter off for college. It poured a dark rich amber with thin off white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had caramel malt base with sharp hop highlight. The taste was a bit rough but is smoothing as I drink more. There is a sweet malt base with roasted corn sharp hop finish. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's an ok beer.

Very good brew, outstanding price ($9.29 a 12 pack at Woodman's in Oak Creek Wisconsin 8/2018). Nice bit of bitter but great finish with "medium" body (doesn't feel heavy in the gut). Now the beer nerds aint gonna like this one, the branding and label are plain and don't have the candy colors that thbe 'kids' like, nor the lame dork name.,,,seriously as you walk through the beer aisle you see the shitty marketing to trap you.

I am a fan of bock beers and this one was a treat. Very smooth with a great coffee flavor that holds well. the lace when poured had great color and when held to the light , had a dark red hue. I am glad I did not pass on this one. looking it up I find its not really a craft beer but has been around for some time. Its a win.

DATE: February 17, 2017... OCCASION: Friday relaxing with Shan... GLASSWARE: Celebrator doppelbock pokal... pours a velvet-black body... the head folds to a thin ring of off-white cream... light roasted, punchy malts evoke chocolate and dry fruit... the body is reasonable, untextured, soft at the start and flourishing at the finish.... a beer that sips like it would be fine straight from the body, but could be okay treated in glass... grape, raisin, bitter malts, cereal grains and caramel--a toned-down 40 oz. to some degree, but less harsh...easy-drinking, lively, and weightier than the average lager, but not a bock in the power profile... not familiar with Huber, but having found this one through a mix-twelve, I am no worse for wear...

From notes taken 08/21/16:

Dark reddish brown, but quite clear. Toasty brown head, fine and thick but fizzy and quickly dissipating, although leaving a film for the duration, replenishing itself from the bottom. Aromas of toasted grain, some sourness to it that must be a mediocre bock’s equivalent to dark fruit or toffee notes. All very faint, so can’t call it unpleasant. Flavors of toast, light smoke, toffee, and again sourness. Some spicy and peppery qualities especially toward the finish, blends well with smokiness. A decent palate in the balance, although I would prefer less overt tartness. Medium body, with fine and abundant carbonation just shy of effervescence. Tingly suds throughout with a gulpy finish. I’ve had worse and better.

Bottled and very unusually for me chilled
Pours a coffee body with thick lasting off white head
Caramel and wholemeal bread aroma
Burnt sugar flavour
Slightly thin
Not what I expected really but actually quite better

I drank this out of the bottle, as is my wont. Nice, malty aroma, nice mouthfeel, but not heavy. Maybe I'm prejudiced, because you can buy this for less than ten dollars a twelver every day, but this is an excellent bock. It has the typical chocolate-coffee taste of most bocks, but for the price point this beer simply can't be beat.

A 330ml bottle with no visible BB date. Acquired a while back from a B&M store. The label describes it as a mellow dark brown beer with hints of coffee and cocoa.

A: Poured into a cervoise. A dark reddish-brown hue with light carbonation. Yields a small, off-white head of foam that lasts for a brief moment before dissipating. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of sweet malt with hints of caramel/toffee, barley sugar, mild roasted grain, a twinge of coffee, husks and faint stewed leaves. So-so.

T: Tastes of sweet caramel malt with a mild finish. Notes of caramel/toffee, mild roasted grain, barley sugar, a touch of coffee and faint stewed leaves. Little hop presence or bitterness. Quite sweet, followed by a lingering maltiness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with soft carbonation and average body. A bit thin for the style. Aftertaste of sweet caramel malt and mild toasted grain.

O: Meh - sweet and harmless. Lacklustre looks, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by sugary caramel malt and a hint of grain. So-so body; a tad too thin. A bit too sweet and lacking in complexity when compared with authentic examples. Easy enough to drink but no need to seek it out.

Above average beeer and the price is typically cheap, $10 for a 12 pack of bottles.

Has a caramel-like start, but the roast malts combine at the finish to almost give a tobacco flavor. Bought on recommendation because it was 9.99 for 12. Won't buy again.

Bought a 12 pack from Beers of the World on 1/23/15. Served cold in a mug

Look: Root Beer Brown. Thin head doesn't stick around long

Smell: Brown Bread and Molasses

Taste: very sweet. Just enough Hops to prevent it from being cloyingly so. Tastes like Dark Corn Syrup

Feel: saccharine lingers

Overall: not so good

Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of a touch of cocoa/chocolate with a slightly metallic tinge. A hint of vague hops are there, as is some dark grain.

The taste is of cocoa - slightly metallic. Not too sweet. It has a balanced, abrupt finish. Not much flavor. It almost seems like it goes towards a doppelbock, but a thin one.

Although thin, it's not watery or too fizzy. Although not particularly creamy, either. Still, it's easy on the tongue.

Not bad. A decent dark bock.
