3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from the bottle as my weather-watchin’ beer this evening, and damn was this creamy! I’ve been sitting on it for a while, probably an ’09 or ’10 vintage, and never bothered to get into the six pack until now for some strange reason. Malty forward sweetness with some hints of dark fruit and molasses, very creamy... like the mouthfeel stands out more than anything else. Very tame with just a minor alcohol booziness on the back end, but unfortunately a bit past it’s prime. A bit of the... what is that... cardboard through the middle from over-aging. Aha! Found the bottle date: 09/23/10. Happy to have and drink, will definitely have to pick up a fresh batch to compare down the road.

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.

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.
