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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle. Poured a warm amber-brown color with minimal head. Great sweet aroma that follows through in the taste. Malt flavor really comes through for bit of extra sweetness up front and then a nice, warm finish.

In a word: Delicious. An excellent doppelbock: sure it’s a bit sweet, but again, it’s a doppelbock.

The beer had a dark brown hazy color. The taste was carmel, malt, bread, some yeast, and kind of nut flavor at the finish. The taste of the beer is ok, and the body was medium/creamy. I also found this to be a little overly-sweet which seemed to make the beer "heavier" to me. Although the flavor was good, it was hard for me to finish because of this perceived heaviness.

Aroma is rather subtle for the odd flavor. Flavor is someone odd and almost wood-like but rich and robust. Aftertaste is a little dissappointing; almost seems like it leaves a bitter film embedded on the back of your tongue.
