This beer pours a cloudy ice-tea color with a thin head and no lace. It's aroma has a hint of chocolate at first then caramel takes over. The flavor is one dimensional, purely sweet malt with a hint of brandy in the finish. The flavor is sweet to the point of being sickening, like the hops were forgotten. The mouthfeel is thick. Troegs Troegenator Double Bock is a not a good beer, a poor representation of the style. Not recommended!

Troegenator produces a modest almond head over a dark brown beer with darn rusty highlights.

The Dogfish Head snifter nicely accentuates the malty, sweet aromas with fruity notes of cherries and other dark fruits.

Malts are up front; however, this is otherwise well balanced. A mélange of dark fruits present well as this warms.

Full bodied with surprisingly low alcohol and a texture that could almost be called smooth. Carbonation is soft.

This is a great beer for sipping or with food.

Pours a rich red-brown color with a one finger off-white head in my imperial punt glass. The head eventually settles to a ring around the edge of my glass. The smell is of dark fruit, a slight red apple, and some rich malt. In the taste I get more of that dark fruit, maybe a touch of syrup. Not much of a discernible hop presence. Mouthfeel is generally thick. An enjoyable beer, but not one of my all time favorites.

This brew pours a very dark amber color with a thin mocha head and minimal lacing.

The smell is complex; it hits the drinker with scents of brown sugar, carmel, malt, and various fruits.

Mouthfeel is slightly chewy with the malts and spices lingering on the tongue.

The taste is complex first malts then various fruits, brown sugar, carmel and possibly licorice. No alchohol taste. This beer is very sweet. There seems to be a touch of hop oil on the backend. The brew also leaves a "dry" taste in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall, heavy malts, lots of sugar, very sweet complex fruit smell and taste.

A: Clear and Dark with a Reddish Amber hue. Very minimal cream head that dissipates quickly.

S: Dark fruits, malt, sweet, caramely

T: Follows smell. Sweet, but not too sweet. The dark fruit and malty flavors come up front. Almost tastes like a quad, but again, the sweetness is pleasant and mild. Alcohol is well hidden. No detectable hop presence.

M: Medium to Heavy mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Feels very filling when you drink it. Now I understand why the monks regarded this style as "liquid bread."

O: A very pleasant and flavorful brew to sip on. The thick mouthfeel makes it rather filling, but the abundance of dark fruit flavors is delicious.

Pours a deep, dark copper with little head that dissipates quickly. The nose is malty and bready. Sweet malt is dominant throughout with a sweet and slightly sour finish.

This offering is not quite a the best doppelbock I've had, but it is pretty darn close.

Paired very well with my rosemary flavored quesadilla.
