I'm a bit disappointed in this one. Although a complex and flavorful beer, some elements of it are slightly off putting. I was particularly bothered by the burnt malt flavor and booziness. The finish left a medicinally boozy aftertaste that reminded me of Jaegermeister. (which I do not like) I was looking forward to having this one because I love doppelbock. I will give it another chance, however, it does not look like it measures up to other german doppelbocks I've had.

Fantastic brew, malty with the right balance of bitterness and alcohol prescience

Pours transparent brown in color. Some minor orange hues. Little to no head retention.

The smell is sweet and crisp. I notice something in the aroma that reminds me of a honeycrisp apple... that isn't it, but I can't explain it any better.

Taste is malty, almost dry-like, and satisfying. Well-balanced flavor profile for a beer of this style. The 8.2% seems to be well covered up, as I don't notice the alcohol so much. This is a tasty beer. I like this style a lot, but this is definitely in the better half of dopplebocks that I've tried.

This beer was dark heavy and filling. Strong caramel. I was not a big fan.

Poured from tap at Pies and Pints in Waterbury, CT

Appearance pours a beautiful deep amber brown in color, tight lacing that clings to the inside of my glass - good carbonation bubbles - Aroma is of some deep raisin and figs - the hops are subtle and mild with a slight grass tone coming through - The taste is as advertised - a huge malt base with hints of rum, honey and slight licorice. Mouthfeel is medium carbonation with a nice malt base that holds up on the tongue well without breaking down - Overall an impressive Doppel with just the right amount of flavor complexity combined with a nice ABV to warm the soul - will seek out again now that Troegs is available in the great state of CT

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip bottled on 1/28/15.

A - Brownish black with ruby highlights. Pours with no head, just a thin lace.

S - Dark malts, bread, nuts, faint booze.

T - Vanilla, malts, syrup.

M - Dense, low carbonation, moderately sticky.

O - Love the style, been a way on a visit to ipaland for a while, glad to revisit, this is a good representation.

Thee beer pours a nice light tannish head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is an opaque and brown with some reddish notes.

The beer smell is fairly simple. The main notes are a strong caramel malt smell with a bread and nut note. The smell is especially sweet and delicious.

The beer taste is heavily malty like the smell. The various notes are caramel, bread, and nutty; all of which work well together with each other. Additionlly, the beer also has a slight bitter hop taste to it as well but is very faint.

The mouthfeel is fairly heavy bodied with very little carbonation. The drink is extremely smooth with a slight thickness that makes the beer worthwhile. The carbonation does not have much of a bite but gives the beer a bit of texture.

Overall, a fantastic dopplebock and on par with ones made from Germany. I can't think of better one and highly recommend it to everyone.

Thanks to @JNForsyth for this PA gem
Pours a rich avocado honey color.
Smell is a mix of nuttiness and bready malt.
Taste is a bit sweeter than I expect for this style but quite tempting. Again a bit bready or biscuity, nuttiness takes a back seat.
Finish is consistent with the whole journey.
Finish is slightly sticky which keeps that sweetness clicking litley in the back of my mouth.
Solid.
