3.9/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a dark murky amber color with a decent off white head. Leaves a slight amount of lacing.
S: Slight notes of sweetness but more of a grainy sweet than a chocolatey sweet. Hints of fruits and nuts also come in an out.
T: Very interesting flavor. It seems to go back and forth from sweet to bitter. Overall, the fruity sweetness tends to dominate the taste, but bitter notes creep in and out. I don't drink many "Doppelbocks" so I can't compare it to anything really.
M: Very thin beer with very little chew. Not overly carbonated, which is nice.
D: It's a drinkable beer. Its surprisingly easy drinking considering the 8.2 ABV.
Overall: Overall the beer was a complex fruity doppelbock with hints of bitterness. I havent drank many of this style, but I enjoyed it, and would recommend other beer drinkers to try it.

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.
