bottle date 4/17/12.

great beer. pretty dark amber, almost purple color, good head that doesnt stick around long. big aroma of cherries and apples. you can smell the freshness.

opens with big caramel, bready malts, lots of cherry and apple, little pear, maybe some plum. nice hoppy sizzle on the tongue sensation, love the hallertau / sazz combo. hoppier in bottle, nuttier on tap, been so long since ive enjoyed a sixer almost forgot how good this beer can be. very heavy, truly a meal in a bottle, good mouthfeel and finishes little syrupy. the cherry and apple really stood out, reminding me this was one of the first craft beers i loved. good to revisit an old favorite.

outstanding. and a great value.

This beer.

I love me some doppelbocks, and this is king of them for me. I've had Ayinger Celebrator, and I know that's generally ranked as #1, if not very close.

But IMO this one just edges it out. I could drink a couple growlers full on a hot summer day, or on a cold fall evening. It's just perfect for me.

If I had to criticize the beer in any way, it's that it feels a little syrupy once you have so much of it. But that's doppelbock for you.

Find it, buy it, drink it.

Pours a light brown, red-tinted color with a big tan head that has good retention and lacing. Bready malt nose, some floral hoppiness, caramel and brown sugar, and a hint of booze.

Very nice, big and chewy malt presence, lightly toasted, very faint earthy and floral hops way underneath. Moderate sweetness, dark fruit and caramel. Tasty and aggressively flavorful. Somewhat sticky finish.

Medium to slightly full bodied with solid carbonation. A well done and very satisfying example of the style.

Bottled 03/16/2012. Been a long time since I've had this brew. A big revisit coming right up!

Light chestnut brown with exceptional clarity and just a scattering disc of head that becomes a ring and surface foam in no time. 3.0

Taffy sweetness with caramel, detergent, burnt sugars, red currant, and raisin. Interesting soapiness because there's a strange fruity undertone contributing to this aroma. Almost an artificial lemon when it's all said and done with. Slightly medicinal. 3.5

Malty sweet and only slightly rough. Candied fruits like dates and raisins come to mind. Perhaps a hint of strawberry. Some medicinal hops. Deep roastiness and lots of leftover wort sugar that has converted into decadance for a doppelbock. Nuttiness might be from the yeast, but I'm picking up some bitter almond leaning toward Amaretto. A sweet and luxurious doppelbock from Tröegs. 4.5

Glossy body returns in the mouth as syrupy without being overly sticky. Lower carbonation that really only resonates in the back of the palate with the swallow. Conjures up a spice element that I didn't really notice before. Expected boozy strength for an 8.2% bock. 3.5

Aaaahhh... I remember this beer! So nostalgic-feeling, drinkin' this here brew. Still impressive after all these years. And to think a young me thought this was too strong! Never said it wasn't delicious. 4.0

Pours a foggy ruby with a quick finger of off white to light brown head. Decent lacing and beading.

The nose is all malt. Toffee, caramel, lots of that. I'm struggling to pull much of anything else from this. There's some booze if you really look for it.

The taste offers a lot of the same. Some licorice too, scotch, some woody bits. Pretty good.

Not my style, but well done nonetheless.
