3.79/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- Pours an attractive dark reddish brown with a thin off-white head.

S- various fruits (banana seems to be in there, but it doesn't dominate), nutty, caramel, malts, cinnamon.

T- Sweet, dark fruits, very malty, cinnamon, and possibly some vegetables
that may just be me though.

M- Medium to heavy body, low carbonation.

O- Very flavorful and complex beer. It's also a very drinkable doppelbock. Another great beer from Troegs.

3.75/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: deep amber/rust color with a khaki head that quickly mellows into a thin, patchy film.

S: very sweet with candy-like similarity. Orchard apples and cidar are present with the hops only an afterthought in terms of smell as a whole. Despite a higher alcohol content, it does nothing to in anyway hinder the aroma of this beer.

T: a very quick, subtle bite of bitterness and hops in the initial sips. This quickly dissipates into a sweet, toasty flavor profile with plum, butterscotch and caramel dominating the pleasantly dry finish. About 15-20 seconds after swallowing, an almost vegetable characteristic is present, like squash or zucchini. Maybe it's just me.

M: very soft and mellow considering the high alcohol content. Definitely a deceptive brew, meant to be sipped and enjoyed over a period of time. Even though bubbles are very active in terms of rising to the top, there is very little carbonation present in the taste and mouthfeel.

O: all in all, a very solid Doppelbock. A little sweet for my taste, but the flavor profiles present are very appealing. Definitely worth drinking again in front of the fire on a cold day off.

4.13/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A medium copper with great clarity. The light tan head dissipates to a thin collar having a rocky texture.

S: A rich, moderately-strong malt aroma with moderately-low melanoidins. There is a slight caramel note and a moderately-soft alcohol aroma. Light cocoa and dark fruit aromas of figs and plums become evident as it warms.

T: A rich malt flavor with moderately-strong melanoidins, light caramel and chocolate. Moderate hops bitterness that is a bit strong for style but very enjoyable. There is an underling malt sweetness throughout with a balance that is slightly sweet. The finish is somewhat sweet with an aftertaste of hops bitterness and slightly grainy malt.

M: A medium-full body with moderate carbonation and a slight warmth in the back of the throat. Sliky smooth with a light creaminess and a very faint astringency.

O: A great beer to enjoy while warming up by a fire. Malt forward yet balanced and oh so drinkable. The hops bitterness is too strong for the style.

12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Dark ruby-brown with a small eggshell white head.

S - Plum, black berry, caramel, earthy hops.

T - Sweet bready malt, plum, black cherry, brown sugar, and earthy hops. Finish brings in some nuttiness, more dark fruit, and a light bitterness.

M - Medium-full body, smooth, a little sticky and chewy. Somewhat of a dry finish.

O - A really enjoyable dopplebock. A little sweet but there is some balance from the earthy hops.
