Review: The Sprecher Dopple Bock is a complex beer. At first I didn’t think I liked it. Too bitter. Then, I drank some more and thought that my taste buds were confusing sharp darkness with bitter. Finally, my mouth began deciphering the caramel and sugar flavors deep within this dark amber (light black) beer. I will need to jet up to Wicsonsin again to get a few more of these before I can truly report on all of the flavors wrapped within. This beer reminds me of a dark, malty beer that has been injected with just the right amount of carbonation. The carbonation itself brings out the flavors and makes you sip slowly in attempts to figure out exactly what it is you are tasting.
Not as good as Sprecher’s Black Bavarian, but for a darker, full brew, the Dopple Bock is fantastic.
Rating: 4 / 5
