Dorn-Bräu Doppelbock

Brewery: Dorn-Bräu
Doppelbock 7.5%
Color: golden

Head: white
, ample, rocky
Nose: richly malty, nice mix of grain and hops

Body: full

balanced, richly malty, lightly grainy, understated hops

Served: from a bottle bought at Landbier Paradies

Impression: This was one gorgeous slow pour with a huge rocky head and lovely nose of rich malt, grain and hops. The rich palate is much the same with a lingering semi-dry semi-bitter finish which makes for a dangerously drinkable 7.5% brew.

Next beer or back to the beer list.

    1. I guess we’ve “talked” about this before. I think part of the situation in the US is with prices so high, the breweries feel a need to make their beers stronger to seem worth their price. Generally, even Bockbiers here are quite reasonable and if you go to a first tapping, it would not be unusual for a person to drink five or six even if this strong. It would probably cost about 15 bucks if a village event. We both know what that would get you in a US pub, even a small town. Also, beers there are much hoppier and it’s not so easy to drink a lot of a 90 IBU beer. Bocks are generally around 18 IBU though the best manage to be quite dry. So, when I talk about dangerously drinkable, I mean something that is very easy to drink despite its strength. I think it’s best you come over, a live demonstration works best!
