4.08/5 rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle poured into 16oz snifter; bottled late November 2010 so I'm assuming that I'm drinking this within the boundaries of freshness.
A: Pours a dark brown, crimson under light. One finger of white head which subsides quickly without leaving much lacing behind.
S: Quite sweet, but fruity and pleasant. Lots of bread aromas are present; a strong malty backbone accented by raisins and plums. Very bready for the style, but wholly enjoyable.
T: Once again, very bready, sweet, and fruity. I'm really enjoying the taste in comparison to the other doppelbocks I've had; even though there's very little bitterness to be found, the sweet and bready flavors balance one another very well and are quite enjoyable. One of the few beers I've had with raisin flavors that doesn't overdo it and remains quite enjoyable throughout.
M: Thin-medium body with moderate carbonation, which leads to a somewhat creamy body when swirled around. Slightly dry, jarring, sweet finish. Just a tad syrupy.
D: Extremely drinkable for the style; this is by far the easiest-drinking (not to mention best) doppelbock I've had. I cannot BELIEVE this is an 8.20% ABV beer considering the light body and complete masking of the alcohol in flavor and scent. I've had it before and I'll have it again. Highly recommended if you have a chance to pick it up or trade for it.

Poured aggressively into a .5l glass.
A- Beautiful dark reddish brown with a rich off-white head, that slowly dissipates, and laces well.
S- This beer needs time to open up!
It's strong, give it time. Over time more ripe fruit, including banana as another reviewer wrote, along with caramel, malt, cinnamon, nuts, spice cupboard.
T- dark fruits & malt pre-dominate. cinnamon, and cupboard, mahogany, wet wood tones... like the smell, the taste blooms if you give it time. needs to warm & breathe.
M- Medium-heavy body, low carbonation. satisfying weight.
O- Very flavorful and complex beer. It's also a very drinkable doppelbock. Being in center of Pennsy German region, it makes sense that Troegs would trump this style!
The key is let it breathe, give it time. More and more complexity, ester, sweet flowers, with mahogany and pleasant alcohol emerges over time.
Would definitely recommend for winter sessions.

3.39/5 rDev -13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearence: clear brown, thick off shore head with nice retention.
Smell: refined yeast, a bit of sweetness. Not unpleasant but lacking.
Taste: some deep malt notes and a bit of hops and hints of fruit but the taste was heavily overpowered by alchohal.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, full body, not dry. Very filling.
Overall: for me the flavors were lacking, do that the most discernable tadte was alchohal, which isnt too pleasant, I cant see myself buying this again and I had higher hopes from this brewery.
