Super thick pour, but a nice blend of flavors led by toffee and caramel. Nice little brew but far from my favorite.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cold bottle from Beach Liquors, Bethany , De. whiskey brown color, off whit head with thin short-lived laceSpicey malt aromea with slight acid alcohol sharpness. Rich-malty round flavor, caramel, chocolate, some wood and raison. Reminiscent of Unibroue Terrible or even a light version of DFH Raison d’Etre. crisp finish. I’ll drink at least 4 of these...

Expected much more for Troegs and since it was a Dopplebock my hopes were just too high. Poured into the correct stem glass the aroma was this beer’s shining quality, beautifully sweet with noticeable malt notes. Reddish brown like a root beer with a quickly disappearing head and no lacing. Sweet slightly oaky flavor. Light bubbly palate that finishes clean and slightly dry. Not a bad attempt at a Dopplebock.

Pours like coca cola. Tastes very smooth, very delicious malty brew. I enjoyed it very much. Carbonated palate, had a great texture going down. Definetely could taste the alcohol in this one. Very good beer.

Very bready taste, and suprisingly smooth for the alcohol content. Not my favorite, but would surely drink again

I prefer the Heller style - but had to try this. It is serviceable. The aroma is the best part. Comes off very nice with all the scents you’d expect. That was the highlight. Everything else was average. It almost felt like a stout. too much alcohol taste that they evidently tried to mask but the sweetness used was a bit too much. May buy again to reassess - for now, its just ok.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle pours to a copper color. Strong malty aroma with nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet and full body. Very drinkable and with a 8.2% ABV kick. I definitely liked this one. Another good beer from Troegs.

A terrific doublebock if ever there was one. Little head, nice, full-bodied flavor, and an 8.2% ABV. I like high octane brews, but the flavor in this one truly wins out over the buzz. One of my all time faves.

Wow! A pleasent surprise. My first brew from this brewery. Have to be careful with this one. Taste so good you forget about the 8.2. And that my friend will cause you a world of hurt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a very sweet and malty beer with hints of cherry and caramel. Lots of booze and borderline syrup but surprisingly drinkable. No lacing, odd color. Definitely not a classic dopplebock, nor a great one. But good nonetheless.
