Czeched Out is the latest doppelbock on tap at New Holland’s taproom, highlighting a malty Czech bock aged 5 1/2 months in third use Dragon’s Milk barrels. Featuring sweet vanilla, caramel and bourbon flavors, coupled with some dry and dark fruitiness, this is surprisingly an easy drinker for the style, even with a 9.4% ABV.

9% ABV, Draft

Appearance: Clear orange with a small head.
Aroma: Slight caramel notes.
Taste: Sweet, fruity, caramel and some malt. A slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Despite the 9% ABV, The Filling Station’s Einbeck Doppelbock goes down surprisingly smooth. With a balance of sweet and luxurious flavors, this doppelbock is a perfect example of the style. It’s not too much over the top, but it’s definitely a beer I’ll remember for a long time.
