Zum Goldenen Adler Doppelbock

A Doppelbock with a gorgeous deep amber hue and off-white creamy head. Lovely rich malty nose with a hint of burnt caramel. Palate is similar, making it a more of a sipper but balanced enough that I had three with lunch!

Pax-Bräu Pacifator

Pax-Bräu Pacifator is a lovely example of the style with a balanced fruity palate featuring a hint of smoke. It's extremely dry for 8.7% and while hoppy, the bitterness level quite low relative to the dry finish. Lovely.

Franken Bräu Florinator Doppelbock

Franken Florinator is a richly malty Doppelbock with hint of burnt caramel and a lingering somewhat sticky finish.

Düll Krautheimer Dunkler Doppelbock

Düll Krautheimer Dunkler Doppelbock is a richly malty example of the style with dried fruit in both the nose and palate. Their signature white pepper element doesn't play so well with this particular beer but the lingering finish isn't overly cloying, even at 7.8%.

Kesselring Urfränkisches Doppelbock

Kesselring Urfränkisches Doppelbock is uncharacteristically deep golden but a wonderful mix of rich malt and underlying hops. It's got some honey in the nose and the palate is fruity and surprisingly dry for 7.5%.

Bayer (Zum Grünen Baum) Dunkler Doppelbock

Bayer Dunkler Doppelbock is a nearly black richly malty brew with some dark chocolate and a lingering semi-dry bittersweet finish. One of the very best!

Felsenbräu Felsator

Felsenbräu Felsator is a richly malty Doppelbock with dried fruit in both the nose and palate before a lingering semi-dry, bittersweet finish.

Dorn-Bräu Doppelbock bottle

Dorn-Bräu Doppelbock is a richly malty Hallerbock with some grain in the mix before the hops dry things out in the lingering semi-dry finish. Dangerously drinkable at 7.5%

Wurm Jura Quell Doppelbock

Wurm Jura Quell Doppelbock is a gorgeous richly malty potent brew of 7.5% with both caramel and roast in the nose and palate before a lingering, semi-dry, bittersweet finish.

Hauf Dinkelator

Hauf Dinkelator is a velvety Dopplebock with a richly malty palate and lingering finish.
