Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A--Pours a rich one finger mocha milkshake head, super thick and lasting, with considerable lacing left behind. Body is deep deep auburn, kind of a bloody caramel.

S--Sweet, liqueur-like. Raisins or prunes soaked in brandy, with a back end of a little roasted grain character. Not much breadiness, certainly not as much as I expected, out of the malt here--mostly just toffee and sweet boozy dark fruits.

T--More of the same here, as the predominant characteristic resembles a dark brown bread if you let the loaf soak in about a quart of dark Barbados rum. Not a bad flavor at all, but man what a wallop of malt! It's not too abundant, though, as the lager yeast at the end makes it all worthwhile, and finishes quite smoothly. I was surprised at how clean the taste ended. A bit like licking the liquid out of one of those cherry cordial chocolates, but hey, I don't know squat about the style, so maybe that's normal.

M&D--I love the mouthfeel on lagers, and this ones not exception. Even a rich beer can feel silky and have the suggestion of something deeper and dank. Drinkability? yeah, right. After one of these I have to wait an hour to start typing, so there's that.

I'm a total ignoramus when it comes to doppelbocks (thus my conservative scoring). I wanted to try Sixpoint's emasculator when it came around but missed that bus, so this is my first. It reminded me a great deal of Long Trail's triple bag. Anyway, if Troegs is anywhere close to the Germans on this, I'm looking forward to my next foray in this style.
