Poured from the bottle into a chalice glass.

Pours a clear amber color with a decent off white head topping to almost two fingers. Leaves moderate lacing.

Pretty strong malt smell here, lots of fruits, some alcohol, brandy.

I'm not an expert on doppelbocks, but this one is definitely not Celebrator! Its very malty, like the nose implied. Strong flavors of sweet, dark fruits like plum wash over the palette. Minor and welcomed alcohol in the back give it a brandy like quality. Some lager yeast hint at its doppelbock genealogy. Minor bitterness.

Mouthfeel is a little think and on the heavier side, but not as heavy as I thought it would be.

Well I guess this really fits the definition of a "double bock" beer. Its just not what I had expected after trying Ayinger's masterful Celebrator. Still good, though.

Poured from a bottle dated July 2011 into a pint glass. Copperish in color with a half a finger of head.

Kind of bitter in taste, but it hides the alcohol fairly well for the abv. Also bitter in the mouth, with moderate carbontation.

Overall, not really my thing. I've had a few of Troegs better offers (nugget, hopback) so I was pretty disappointed with the Doublebock. It was my third try at it from this sixer too, so I gave it a fair shot.

Drank this from a pint glass while watching college football on a cold afternoon...the last bottle from the pack.

Amber/brown and clear. Tan head that doesn't last very long.

Smell is malty with hints of fruit. Not much hops on the nose. Sweet.

Taste is rich and malty. Sweet flavor. Very malt forward. Dark fruit picked up as well. Perhaps some earthy hops to balance but definitely not prominent. Alcohol not present in the taste.

Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. A bit sticky. The way it should be.

Alcohol is not apparent in the taste but is felt at the end. A sipping beer for me. Not one to pound several but that isn't what a dopplebock is about. I think my favorite is still Celebrator but this is definitely up there on my list of top doppelbocks. Worth drinking again...and again...and again.
