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.
