Brewed by Bayern Brewing - Missoula, Montana
"Doppel" means double and this beer is double in every way. Bayern
Doppelbock became an instant legend when Bayern introduced it in
Missoula in December of 1987. Unlike its top-fermenting
counterparts, this hearty German dark lager does not have the rough
bite of a porter or a stout.
Bayern Doppelbock is dark, smooth and has plenty of hops (Saaz &
Hallertauer Perle) and malt. It has a starting gravity of >18
degrees Plato (7.8 - 8.4% ABV). Bayern Doppelbock is available in
bottles and on draft from November through February, just in time
for the holidays and the coldest months. Please enjoy this festive
beer in moderation and leave your car at home if you are planning to
celebrate with Doppelbock.
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: This beer has a very dark brown look with a slight ruby
tint in the light. The head is mostly non-existent except the thin
layer around the edge touching the glass.
Aroma: Very nice maltiness...dark fruits (plums, black cherries),
and a dark chocolate dimension as well.
Taste: The taste is strong, the abv on this page should be a range
up to maybe 12% after examining descriptions of this beer. A flavor
of a heavy bread, with a slight bit of spice comes on at first
followed by a tinge of alcohol that warms you right up.
Mouthfeel: It is a full beer that has a good thickness, which is
slightly creamy it ends with a nice alcohol warmth.
Overall: Overall the beer is definitely worth the purchase. In value
you can't get much better than this with the flavor and quality I
definitely recommend this beer as being top notch.
