The Doppelrock

More bocks this week, and The Doppelrock from Great Lakes Brewing is a worthy one.  Deep mahogany with a splotchy head and decent amount of carbonation, this brew is sweet, rich, malty and yeasty in its bouquet.  There’s a light smokiness in the taste, and it is again sweet and saliva-thickening.There’s a touch of black peppercorn in the finish.  The yeastiness is revisited in the finish as well.  This is a good, drinkable double bock, and this is the season to enjoy this style of beer.  Dig in!
