This beer poured a dark amber color with an off-white head that was less than a finger-width thick. The head disapated quickly.

The aroma has a strong carmel scent with a hint of chocolate.

The initial taste is sweet with less Carmel than I expected. In the middle the chocolate notes come through. At the end, there was a bitter somewhat hoppy taste, and a bit of smokiness.

The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with less than expected carbonation.

Overall this was a decent dopple bock, but it was a bit thin for my liking.

Lively carbonation, but not much of a head. Spicy character, estery. Sweet too. Maltiness comes through fairly strong as well, somewhat toasty.

Dark caramel,molasses color . Aroma is mostly malt,molasses, and the taste is identical. The alcohol comes through in the smell and taste in a not so pleasant way,too medicinal.

Pours a slightly clear, reddish brown color with about a finger of light tan head that fades to a tiny bit of lacing. Smell is sweet, caramel and molasses notes primarily with some sweet malt towards the end. Taste follows with sweet malt and molasses as dominant flavors, also featuring notes of wood and grass towards the end. Feel is medium-heavy, with a little bit of alcohol burn. Overall, pretty good. Took a little bit to get used to the sweetness, but once I did there was plenty of other flavors that make this a fairly enjoyable beer.

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.
