3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Can: Rich chestnut & ruby tinted body with good clarity; largely porous, gray-beige head is settled to a thin collar in just moments. CaraMunich malt aroma with a light staleness to it. Toasted bread, faint toffee, slight anise, & some deeper notes of plums & figs. Large toasted bread flavor, a hint of spiciness that almost seems like rye. Caramel, sweet malt, stale toffee, light plum, & a slightly medicinal, herbal finish. Only a small kiss of earthy hops. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance- light tan bubbly head (like a mocha latte). Dissipated quickly and minimal lacing. Fairly dark, mahogany, amber, copper.
Smell- clean, malty, sweet, fruit (raisins), spices. Sherry-like. Very pleasant.
Taste- reminded me of a scotch ale. Sweet, malty, caramel.
Mouthfeel- light to medium body. Creamy. Well balanced.
Overall- a very nice beer. A good effort by a great brewery at a Dopplebock. Most impressed by the evenly balanced mouthfeel given the various aromas and tastes happening in this brew. Would have again and definitely recommend.

A fantastic doublebock, my favorite offering from Troegs. Beautiful reddish brown - call it mahogany, dark amber, whatever, it’s pretty. Light tan or beige head, creamy and medium-bodied. Packs a nice ABV punch. Mildly sweet with molasses and caramel overtones. Pleasant long finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark, reddish amber. Thin tan head. Malty, caramel aroma. Initial sweetness that finishes with a good bit of spice. Certainly bready but somewhat oily.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
appearance; rich amber in color. lightly carbonated, pours with a little head fading to just a ring around glass clear
aroma: smells of malts and toffee, warming alcohol can be smelled also
taste tastes of sweet malt and warming alcohol notes at end.
mouthfeel: thick full body beer that’s smooth. Warming alcohol taste at end.
drinkability: good beer but not too many at one time because of the high alcohol content.
notes could use a liitle bit more carbonation.
this also is a good beer for cellaring.
