Thee beer pours a nice light tannish head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is an opaque and brown with some reddish notes.

The beer smell is fairly simple. The main notes are a strong caramel malt smell with a bread and nut note. The smell is especially sweet and delicious.

The beer taste is heavily malty like the smell. The various notes are caramel, bread, and nutty; all of which work well together with each other. Additionlly, the beer also has a slight bitter hop taste to it as well but is very faint.

The mouthfeel is fairly heavy bodied with very little carbonation. The drink is extremely smooth with a slight thickness that makes the beer worthwhile. The carbonation does not have much of a bite but gives the beer a bit of texture.

Overall, a fantastic dopplebock and on par with ones made from Germany. I can't think of better one and highly recommend it to everyone.

Thanks to @JNForsyth for this PA gem
Pours a rich avocado honey color.
Smell is a mix of nuttiness and bready malt.
Taste is a bit sweeter than I expect for this style but quite tempting. Again a bit bready or biscuity, nuttiness takes a back seat.
Finish is consistent with the whole journey.
Finish is slightly sticky which keeps that sweetness clicking litley in the back of my mouth.
Solid.

Did not care for at all. More of a whiskey kind of after taste.

Received a selection box of Troegs beers for Christmas, and this is by far my favourite. Nice rich flavour.

Bright deep cherry with creamy pale tan that trails but fades. 3.75
Glace cherry, golden syrup, and maybe a bit of sherry oxidation on the nose. 3.75
Rugelach, some floral notes, hot buttered rum, and some lightly grassy Noble hops. 3.75
Toffee finish and Werther’s linger.
Medium, chewy, round, no heat. 3.75

Lots of malt, natch, but pretty sugary and where’s the brown bread? Bottled 3.3, 9 months ago - I’d have thought doppelbocks would age well but maybe not. Not the best example of Troegs or the style. 3.75

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty, deep, dark, completely opaque, mahogany color, with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into an extremely thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Not very aromatic at all, but I do get some faint notes, and I mean really, faint, of toasted malt and brown sugar.

Taste: What the beer lacks in aroma, it more than makes up for in flavor. There are some very good, very strong flavors of bready, toasted malt up front, followed by some strong notes of dried stone fruit, such as raisins, prunes and figs. I also get some faint notes of brown sugar and toffee-like sweetness. The beer finishes with a touch of hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and slightly effervescent as there is just a touch of carbonation. With an ABV of 8.2%, there is a slight hint of alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: This is a very good American version of a German Doppelbock. Malty, sweet, lots of flavors of dried stone fruit and slightly bitter, this beer is very reminiscent of German doppelbocks. Recommended to Doppelbock fans.

Pours into a pint glass and for $4 figured I couldn't go wrong
Nice head which fades but leave nice lacing. Malty but a aftertaste that just didn't sit well. Not sure I would have another.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured a clear dark brown/red color with a light head that quickly faded, minimal lacing.
Smell: Spicy rye-like bready notes, with some nice caramel aromas.
Taste: Great dark fruit and sweet bready malt flavors, with a bit of anise flavor on the back end.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, very smooth though.
Overall: This is a very good Dopplebock, close to some of the better German Dopplebocks.

Perfect for frozen weather. Strong maltiness, melanoidins, with some toastiness. Very rich, almost a subtle milk choco. Almost ruby in color. Could use a bit more lager crispness.

This thing is beautiful in the glass and has the malt backbone to easily hide the over 8%. I loved the rich dark fruits flavor with just a nice subtle burn from the alcohol.

Pours a dark mahogany with amber highlights. Aroma is very much what I like - primarily bread-crusty type malty notes. Flavor follows suit, with a lingering sweetness on the back end. Perhaps too much. The bready notes are all there though, which is a big plus. Not much feel to this one - I expected more. Touch of body on the front end, but with a watery finish. Expected more feel throughout. Good beer, no question, but not among the best I've had.

On tap at Troegs. Too sweet for me. Probably an excellent double bock. Need to have more of the to rate this properly. Should have again.

Look - dark red color with a tan white head.
Smell - sweet carmel malty smell
Taste - sweet Carmel malt taste but also with some type of dark fruit taste.
Feel - medium body and carbonation.
Overall - fantastic double bock.

The nose holds chocolate malt, dry cocoa, some light dark fruit, maltiness, anise and a bit of mint leaf.

The flavor favors the dark fruit and malt. Raisin and prunes hit the palate with a malty barley grain. I get some molasses and sorghum at mid palate before finishing with some anise and mint.

This is a good one, full of flavor and complexity.

Probably the tastiest Bock I have had, it feels like I am in Bavaria at a monastery.

4.5/5  rDev +14.5%

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle bottled on 09/09/14. Sampled December 1, 2014.

Dark mahogany brown pour with a modest tan head.

The aroma is sweet and malty with a weak barleywine sweetness.

The body is medium to full.

The taste is incredibly sweet and malty with a moderate bitter finish. It is quite tasty.

Utterly disappointing. Tastes like they dumped in extra flavored like caramel instead of having them form naturally.
