This is clearly in the Sam Adams class of d-bocks. I propose that an ADB category be created!
Pours heavy, clear brown--a couple of ticks lighter than Salvator, if I recall that one properly. Deep alcohol nose, and hot, heavy, nutty, grainy, dextrine body. Foretaste just vanishes and swims around to the mid-after arena, where it does a big malt-hops-yeast trampoline bounce on the crest of the tongue. Only a lip-locked, glottal pumping through the nose can separate the threads in the taste tapestry. Grain aromas linger strongly in the glass. Mild, tart coat remains on the tongue.
Not the Moravian malt, triple-decocted, melanoidin-infused, deep-lagered doppel I've come to love.......but still a pretty righteous brew.

A: Looks good! Deep amber with moderate carbonation and a substantial off-white head.
S: Not much to the aroma. Sweet malts with a hint of biscuit. Lots of alcohol.
T: This is way left on the malt-to-hop scale. The malts contribute a gently sweet and even lightly toasted biscuit character. To me, almost no hops can be found. Throughout the last half of the taste, the booze dominates. Not very light on the palate.
M: Surprisingly creamy. Has a decent medium body with a slightly watery finish..
O: I enjoy bocks and the rest of the lager family, but doppelbocks aren't my favorite. Just a little too harsh for my taste. The Troegenator is actually a decent double bock; don't let me put this down for you. For me, I find that the flavor isn't balanced enough with hops to compensate for the high alcohol content. For the style, this beer is above average, but it can be found pretty much anywhere. If you're a fan of high-gravity lagers, check this one out!
