(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, dark amber golden with a creamy, beige head leaving laces. Fairly full-bodied with distinct, sweet malt and notes of caramel. A touch of hops for balance but overwhelmingly a sweet and richly malty beer. 181106 Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
An orange-amber beer with a lazing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel and lesser notes of alcohol. The flavor is also malty with strong caramel notes - and lots of sweetness - almost like caramel ice cream topping, but it also has faint notes of hops and flowers.

Bottle poured into Troegenator dimpled mug purchased at the brewery. Orange-red color with nedium tan head. Sweet malt aroma with maybe a hint of sour fruit almost like grapes and apples. Light to medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Sweet malt and s & sour fruit continue in the flavor. Also I think some tobacco notes underneath. Hides ABV well. hiphops (324) - caldwell, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2006

On draught from the brewer, from the Floyd Fandango. Pours deep chestnut with a 2-finger head and nice lace. The aroma is slightly sweet and nutty, with a hint of sugar and possibly some chocolate. The flavors are slightly sweet, richly malted and backed with a decently hopped bitter property. It’s nice and full-bodied, with a dark bitter chocolate finish that lingers appropriately. Overall, it’s chewy and seemingly well-put together; however, there is an "airy" consistency throughout the pull that made it slightly less than the "bigger" dopplebock I’d have expected.

Draft ! Sampled with Stegosaurus and Beerded_one at Newtown Beerfest. Reddish brown pour with a little head. Aroma of malty and caramel. Flavor of a slight spice and caramel. Nothing to complex but not bad. A decent DOPPLE. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2006

Picked this up at a quaint little shop in Virginia on a road trip. Pours dark bronze with a moderately sized tan head. The aroma has subdued toffee, spice, caramel malt and some dough. Medium body that seems light for the style. The carbonation is farily sharp. The taste starts a little watery with more spice than expected and some caramel malt. The finish has a richer taste with more toffee and also some spicy hops. Nice interesting doppel. cheap (6216) - CHINA - OCT 7, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 I’ve been waitin a while to taste something from Troegs. Actually I’ve been patiently anticipating the dream wheat or the mad elf ale. I saw this for $2 a bottle so I thought I’d give it a try. I’ve been avoiding this one because I thought it had a personna of the horned devil on the front. However, upon closer inspection, it is some kind of cross between an old bearded muscleman and one of those rams that smash heads up on a mountain. Initial flavor is good but the finish has a slight amount of bitter hops that lasts for a while after swallowing. Pretty good stuff. Not yer typical pale yellow american beer and extremely better than an IPA or dry stout. It hides the alchohol content rather well.
