A nice doppelbock, very sweet and chewy malts. Was a deep amber color, with a white head. Very very tasty and strong, hard to belive its 8.2%

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2008 12 oz. bottle pours a clear amber brown with an off white frothy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Light malty aroma with hints of caramel and bread. Flavor is a sugary sweet malt with a clean finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. Overall, a well crafted brew.

Pours a dark amber color with some red. The head is large and off white, very nice appearence. Aroma is very light but has some wheat and some fruits. Flavor is a little bitter at first but quickly goes to some bitterness. You can definitly taste wheat and some fruits. The finish is dry that makes you want to drink more. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 Wow! An in-your-face tsunami of flavor. Rich malts balanced with hops and mild sweetness. A mighty style that has too much alcohol and sweetness for me, but a quality beer nonetheless.

draft. Nice head that dissipates quickly but laces the whole way. Great taste and worthy compared to even the best German dopplebocks out there except for Celebrator. This was great and would be nice year round. This is a great doppelbock and i expect nothing less from Troegs.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber brown with medium head, only slight lacing. Flavor is caramel malts with a bit of smoke. It has a little bit of scotch flavor actually. This beer is fairly sweet but there is a nice bitterness in the end which almost balances it out.

Pours a rich brown with a small head. Very smooth but a slightly sweet, hard to place aftertaste.
