Thanks to santoslhalper for giving me the chance to try this great Brew.
Poured a deep Mahogony color with a just barley a hint of thin white head.
Smelled strongly with various scents coming through including a deep musty earthy hop odor, some mildly burnt malts, and a heavy woody cedar smell also.
The taste was very complex with a strong wood and walnut flavors penetrating at first with a nice toffee malt flavor coming through with a very deep earthy hoppiness to it. Tasted very unique, which is hard to come accross anymore.
Mouthfeel is a strange combination of an oily fuzzy feeling that seems to linger long after it has been swallowed. Very interesting.
Drinkability is very good, obviously not someting you are going to make a session out of due to the high ABV, but definitly something I would keep on hand if it were available in my area. Highly recommended.

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.
