drank and reviewed july 10, 2009 in cambridge, ma. bottle has been sitting around longer than i would normally like, but this is an old classic.. pretty accessible, and reasonably available on tap in PA. poured into a snifter.
A: dark burgundy-orange with off-white head. head dissipated quite quickly and left nothing.. but this doesn't seem too normal for this brew.
S: some maltiness and toasty malt.. bit of caramel, touch of alcohol.. some darker fruits (plum?). maybe a touch of maple. not overly strong, but good.
T: follows smell well.. not too much sweetness, but some good malt, touch of caramel, touch of deep plum, and well balanced by some earthy hop notes on the end. touch of hop bitterness stays for awhile.
M: pretty thick when chewed. not too much carbonation, but there and noticeable. tiny bit of spritz right on the end. pretty nice in general.
D: quite high for the abv. a slow-drinking beer, but great for slow marathons.

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.
