Pours a crystal clear amber with a finger of head that dies relatively quickly.
Nose is mostly a sweet caramel toasted malt, a little roasted malt bitterness to back it up (think porter) but only if you're looking for it. Some fig and raisin undertones, a tiny bit of hops to balance things out.
First taste is dominated by the dark caramel malt, Crystal 120 or similar mixed with something a little lighter. Fairly sweet from the malt, but the toasted grain again brings up the rear, all of it encasing the fig note and tied together by a little bit of hops.
Full body, creamy and with a fading sweet aftertaste, this is simply a pleasure to drink. The ABV is dangerously well-hidden, but you can really feel it because it's hard not to drink this beer quickly. I've tried it in a range of serving temperatures and I think the best was about 50F. Once it warms up the sweet malt gets a little too pushy.
It's easy to see why this is a popular brew. It's a very satisfying beverage.

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.
Serving type: can
