From the bottle, it pours a clear brownish color with a small tan head, which stays awhile as a thin layer. Roasted malt and toffee in the nose. The mouth gets some well balanced toffee, roasted malt and even some prunish qualities. Nice finish in the mouth. Yum!

Great head & smell but taste fell a bit flat... maybe that trip across the Atlantic worked some funk on it.

Dark red, bright appearance. Beige foam, two fingers, creamy and delicate.
At the smell toasted malt, caramel, and a touch of nut. Quite pleasant.
Similar taste, toasted and caramel in the foreground, a very light balancing bitterness, again nuts, and almond.
Full centered style, maybe just a bi too liqourous, but ok.

This is one of the most amazing bock I've ever drank. It's just perfect! The alchol is quite high but you don't feel it when drinking, the flavor is rich and sweet.

This 6.5% abv cask version was brewed in conjunction with Wadworth Brewery for the recent Wetherspoons festival. I had a half pint at the 'spoons in Helensburgh.

A red to chestnut coloured beer witha typical mottled 'spoons head. The nose was of brown sugar and caramel, which somehow always reminds me of apple. This is not as sweet as I would have expected with a rather earthy, nutty flavour backed with a slight bitterness.

Appearance: Dark chestnut; small tan head; dissipates quickly

Aroma: Malty; roasted grains; dried fruit; coffee

Taste: Creamy malt with warming alcohol on start; finishes slightly bitter with sweet nutty finale; a little thin, though; zippy like cola

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Leathery oxblood with fluffy beige head that fades fast. Cherries, prunes, brown sugar, brandy barrel and a bit of leather, actually, on the nose.
Ryvita, red currants, and bread crust before a decent dose of spicy hops.
Birch beer and anise finish and cherry stone linger. Medium-full, round, chewy.

Lots of dark fruit; more to chew on than some other doppels. Plenty of malts and some port-like depth, never cloys. Fine example of the style.

50cl bottle poured into Seidel

BBE 16 Sept 2011

A- Mahogany body with excellent clarity. 2 finger tan head reduces instantly to nothing with no lacing, poor.

S- Malt sweetness, even a hint of coconut amongst the toffee and toasted malts

T- Malt domination, not overpoweringly sickly sweet. Toffee and toasty malt qualities are in good quantity resulting in a full body, retaining a clean lager finish.

M- Moderatea carbonation, full body, clean lager finish.

D- The appearance really let it down, looked like cola. Otherwise the nose and palate are spot on. Malt domination without being overbearing. Maybe my glass was dirty, not sure. Will get a fresh sample soon to compare. Excellent stuff appearance aside.

500 ml bottle without the freshness date but brought straight from Germany, into tulip. Pours seemingly opaque, deep dark brown body with ruby hue and good clarity provided by lagering, overlain by mid-sized, creamy, persistent beige head leaving walls of lace as it slides down the glass-sides. The nose is caramel-sweet and utterly complex with very strong malt aroma exhibiting significant melanoidins and toasty qualities, intense chocolaty notes and moderate plum-like fruitiness (originating from the malts, not esters). Low alcohol perceptible. Very faint noble hop like spiciness.
Rich and strong melanoidin-malt flavor with evident, almost rum-like warming alcohol and strong toasty, chocolaty and caramelly notes. Sweet on the palate yet not sticky or cloying finishes rather dry with a balancing touch of noble hops, bitter-roasted aftertaste and lingering alcohol warmth. Full bodied with moderate carbonation.

In short: A robust, toasty, chocolaty, sweet and warming Doppebock to be classed with the best of its kind.

Keeps a consistently level smooth quarter inch head this looks very dark brown with an orangy crystal sparkle. Dry nose, slightly carbonic to start this takes time to open up. Could really do with more richness and dimension though considering what it promises. In my experience the problem with doppelbocks is their tendancy towards hardness and their almost tannic quality that just imprisons all that sweet morish juiciness.

Brown 500ml bottle. Poured into my lovely 'Wolnzacher Brauhaus' Hopfenperle half litre glass mug.

Cracking looking beer, a deep, dark brown colour with a fantastic cream coloured foaming head. The foaming head soon became a collar and wisp, still looked fine though.

The smell was of lightly roasted malts and sweet licorice roots.

The taste and heady mix of chocolate malts, licorice and coffee hints.

Rich, creamy and a depth of body that only good DoppelBocks seem to have. The alcohol was evident, but not enough to put you off, just in the background reminding you the beer is 7.4% ABV and not to be messed with.

This is one of my favourite styles and this bottle is up there with the best in class.
