4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a nice thick head; layers of bubbles rested on a rusty brown complexion. fuzzy but transparent. Nutty, hints of tea, subtle, sweet spice: nutmeg or cinnamon, but still attractive and masculine. well balanced, alcohol hidden nicely, easy first sip; builds on the mid-palate; almost like apple pie: hints of caramelized and cinnamon spiced apples, the crust is there, too. smooth, lingering finish; spice carrying through to the end. This might be one of the top 10 beers, if I had only one to drink.

A good beer. An interesting aroma but promising flavor. It goes down smoothly and provides a crisp finish. Good overall but nothing spectacular.

This was the first double bock I ever tried, and is what got me hooked. Of the different bocks I have tried I think it is still my favorite

Good product! So hard to find a good Doublebock. Bit of alcohol, and great hop balance. I like that caramel flavors from the munich malt. Good job Troegs.

I did a blind taste test with Troegs and Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock (generally acknowledged to be the best Doublebock). The Troegenator won. It doesn't have the deep dark appearance of the Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock but it tastes better. So much of beer is psychological; the only way to compare beers is to do blind taste tests. Troegs makes some great beers; they don't microfilter or pasturize. Their beers are the best except for their Lager (too bland but I guess that goes with the style) and their pilsner (I like Pislner Urquell a lot more).

Very nice double bock. Reedish brown in sweet aroma and nutty flavor. One of my favorites. Also very close to home.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark, small lacey head. Pleasant aroma. Sweet, but not too sweet. Surprisingly light and drinkable. Very enjoyable.

Big fan of doppelbocks and Troegs has nailed it. Head is frothy when poured, then dissipates in minutes, yet leaves nice lace. Aroma is malty with hints of fruit. Well rounded, no off flavors. Hops chime in at the end with a little bite of alcohol. I can drink multiples in an evening. My favorite double bock, and a truly great beer. One of my favorites for under $30 a case.

Absolutely my favorite troegs beer. Definitely not for the weak at heart. Alcohol comes through and through in taste but after one is strangely a lot less noticeable.

To be honest just had a few Sierra Nevada torpedos but this tastes distinctly like bananas. That’s the only taste I get out of these. Will try them without having a few IPA’s before them
