12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---reddish brown, unique, actually. Small tannish head that disappeared quickly and left no real lacing.

S---Overwhelmingly malty. Sticky sweet.

T---Follows the nose, overwhelmingly malty and sticky sweet.

F---Sticky, not smooth or refreshing.

O---I LOVE Troegs, but this is the worst offering I've had from them. Will not get it again.

Poured into a lager glass, the appearance was a stiff dark ruby red color with a two finger white foamy head that slid off at a fair pace. Some messy semi-soapy lace ran around the glass.
The aroma had a wonderful blend of caramel to molasses running over some caramel to bready malts. Light earthy spice and then a little bit of grass, then wood and lightened up with a little bit of biscuits to a quaint breadiness.
The flavor moderately blended the sweet malts to the wood and grass and bringing about the earthiness ever so slightly. All seemed to follow through in the aftertaste nicely.
The mouthfeel felt just right as it seemed to have just enough oomph of the malts to smooth out and allocate a wonderful malty medium body that made for it to be a great sipper. Carbonation felt a bit under but I was okay with that as it didn't have any cloying effects. ABV felt spot on.
Overall, really nicely done doppelbock, well worthy of my time.

Pours a dark Ruby red color with a sand colored finger and a half head, quickly receding leaving some lacing.
Smells of rum, dark malt, maybe a hint of licorice.
Taste follows with a nice malt backbone and some rum spice, earthy hops lingering briefly.
Mouthfeel is moderate and creamy, quite smooth.
Overall an excellent doublebock beer.

Now, this is a good Double Bock. There is a nice ruby/brown color and a thin sandy-brown head. The main reason for anyone getting this beer, in my opinion, is the taste. The nose is that of rum mixed with spices and sugar. For me the taste follows the nose quite well. You may notice a strong malt element along with molasses and dates. Just wonderful for a cool night and a nice cigar. Complex? Well, almost in my opinion. Still, a good beer that is a must try.

(scores may be slightly inflated to reflect Troegs puts a doppelbock in a tallboy (so rad)).

poured from tallboy into a 10 oz. rocks glass:

L: virtually no head. swirl the glass... denied, no head.
a second, "vigorous" pour generated a nice 1" custard head that dissipated in a minute.
cola brown (doesn't look much thicker), kind of soda-syrupy-clingy to the glass

S. CARAMEL (so, lots of caramel). earthy chocolate too. there's some twangy hops clinging beneath the malt trying to sweat some leather into the mix

T: the overwhelming big malt blast is like a Nutella & caramel candy bar swirl. there's some iron and tobacco, and just enough hops to clean up the finish so you can get back to drinking it. But it's sweet and there's definitely booze

F: slick-ish. mostly-flat cola. works great for me but for some this might be cloying

O: Love this rich, caramel, Paulaner Salvator-style doppelbock. Not for everyone but it works awesome for me

L: Dark cola brown with ruby tinges. The head was big and foamy tan, but fizzed away fairly quickly, leaving a thin ring.

S: Caramel, raisin, cherry, fig, pumpernickel bread, gingerbread, toffee, clove, earth.

T: Huge caramel and toffee with a lot of cherry, plum, and raisin. Dark coarse brown bread like pumpernickel and rye, with a spicy clove and earthy finish. Some alcohol warmth, and finishes fairly caramel-sweet with just a touch of earthy bitterness.

F: Medium-full bodied, moderately carbonated, rich and bready and well-rounded.

O: The quintessential American doppelbock. A stellar representation of the style.

By far my favorite beer of all time. Dark, smooth and relaxing. A comfy sort of beer that you can enjoy nice and slow over an hour or longer sithoit losing any flavor. The smell is probably my favorite part of the whole experience, very round and balanced scent that feels very specific to itself. Best double bock in my opinion.

Don't have much experience with double bocks, but here goes. The color is an interesting red, almost a barleywine color with a head that didn't stick around long. There's a bit of a hoppy smell and a little on the taste as well, but not overly bitter. Good taste, good carbonation. A beer I'd drink again but wouldn't go out of my way to get.
