Notes / Commercial Description:

The beer pours a very nice head that doesn't dissipate for a long while. The head is a small bubble foamy kind of head. The beer itself is a clear brown color, which is pretty nice looking.

The beer smell is nice and malty with various kinds of malt notes. The smell has both a caramel kind of malt note and bready note as well. The beer also has a nice floral and grassy hop note to it as well.

The beer taste is also pretty good if not for a tiny aftertaste issue. Overall, the taste i just as sweet and bready as the smell, if not more sweeter. The beer also has a slight hop bite to keep it from being too sweet. However, the beer also seems to have a weird alcohol or grass taste towards the end, which detracts from the overall beer. Other than that, the taste is fine.

The mouthfeel is very heavy (Doppelbock, duh!) and a bit thick. The beer has some carbonation but it is very little and not very noticeable. Some alcohol warmth.

Overall, an almost very good beer and worth picking up to try.

A deep clear brown with a dark red tint, it has a big dark tan head that burns off quickly, leaving just a smidge around the outside of the glass and a smear across the middle. The aroma is big and boozy, bready malt sweetness. The taste is much the same, with just enough of an earthy hops to balance out all the malt. The body has a nice thicker feel to it, smooth throughout with just a little alcohol tingle on the finish.

Strong aroma has notes of caramel and brown sugar, a fair alcohol tang. Pours a dark, somewhat hazy chestnut with a thick and fairly persistent light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Malty, woody flavor has subtle caramel and cloves notes, alcohol bite seems a bit strong. Texture has decent body and sharp fizz, leaving a woody hop finish. Not D-R’s best, but give it a try.
