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. 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. Draft Magazine rated Bayern Doppelbock 98
(out of 100): the highest rating for any beer in that category!
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Dark, dark amber. Not quite black, still slightly
translucent. Doesn't leave any sticky irregular foam. The foam is
silky and thin and drifts down the glass.
Aroma: Nice and light. Just a hint of sweet roast, very mild and
Taste: Starts off with a bit of tanginess which fades quickly to
sweet red fruit flavor which is balanced out with a mild roast. Very
nicely balanced; nothing stands out as too bold or overbearing.
Mouthfeel: Nice mouthfeel except for a lingering roast aftertaste.
Possibly a bit thick for my taste, but easily can overlook that for
the amount of alcohol it's that's in there.
Overall: Excellent winter warmer. Very nicely balanced. Great soft
flavor, but still a deep rich mouth filling beer. You would never
know this beer delivered 8% alcohol. e 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.
