On tap at Poor Henry's

Dark copper color, with a nice off white head that faded into a ring around the glass. Medium lacing.

Cherry, vanilla, some floral and dark fruits. As it warms some alcohol.

Dark fruits like grapes and cherry, crisp taste like a Bock but alcohol infused.

Medium body, Carbonation is medium as well. It's quite dry. This is a sipper for sure.

This is a nice dopplebock, I am not a fan of of them too much but this is tasty. I've had this in a bottle and thought it was okay. Much better on tap with a few years of palate experience.

A-Clear deep ruby amber, not well carbonated

S-Toasted/roasty malts with some licorice

T-Strong malt presence, not much bitterness, flat finish. Some caramel is in there as well.

M-Medium bodied but thin/watery with little to no carbonation.

O-Not sure if I got a bad bottle bottle but this was unlike many of the other Doppelbocks I've had; thin with a boring malt presence.

Another excellent beer from Tröegs. This chestnut brown double bock has a nice head and some lacing. Pleasant malty aroma with some noticeable alcohol in the nose. Plenty of flavor here - the malt, hops, and roasted flavor combine with spice and fruit, and a slight bitterness balances the sweetness wonderfully. A thoroughly satisfying brew that stands up really well to the German greats.

Thanks to stormking47 for this bottle amongst our bunch of back-and-forths. 12 oz. bottle.

Pours a deep, light-bending copper. Strong caramel suffuses the nose. It's only companion is a bit of sweet malt.

Troegenator Double Bock could be used as a billboard for caramel. Massive bolts of caramel back an abyssian caramel depth. Outline of cinnabon & spicing. Shapely mideastern fruits, fig-like, plum, in the middle. A bit leathery, sticky. Warm & easy to drink, they shouldn't double-up bocks like this. It could hurt people.

Pretty good brew. I haven't waded far into the dopplebock pool yet, but I'd imagine that this is a fair representation.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a deep mahogany color with an off color white head that fades rather quickly. A bit of lacing is present, but not all that much.

Aroma – Sweet caramel aroma is big and bold. There is some roasted barley and some breadiness which come in more heavily toward the middle and end of the aroma and is mixed with a bit of dried fruit; mostly cherry but a bit of prune as well.

Taste – A thick malt flavor of bread and roasted barley initially start the taste. A sweeter caramel and brown sugar come into the picture and sweeten the taste significantly. The sweetness is then enhanced even further with dark fruit flavors with the slightest bit of alcohol working its way in, creating a nice finish to the taste.

Mouthfeel – Following the taste, the mouthfeel is thick from the malt. It has a body that coats the tongue with creaminess. The carbonation is perfect for its strength and body, enough to tingle the taste buds, but low enough to enhance the bodies smoothness on the tongue. Very nice.

Overall – Big malt and sugary sweet smoothness – the best way to describe this brew. It’s easy to drink even with its potent strength.

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Pours a deep mahogany color with a medium head, not much retention or lacing.

S - Sweet caramel, dark fruits, malt.

T - Very sweet upfront with caramel, black cherry. Roasty, with brown sugar on the finish. Alcohol is masked by the sweetness.

M - Very nice medium-heavy bodied. Thick without being syrupy. Good carbonation.

O - Great dopplebock with a variety of sweet malty flavors. Very sweet, but not overpowering. Smooth, with well hidden alcohol. I will get this again.
