Troegenator Doublebock

Brewery: Troegs Brewing Company
Style: Doppelbock
ABV: 8.2%
Country: USA, Pennsylvania

Sill working through my gift pack. This is the second Troegs on this blog, the first being the awesome Mad Elf. The Doppelbock is a more potent version of the Bock style. For those that prefer SATs, Doppelbock is to Bock as Imperial IPA is to IPA. More malts, flavors, and alcohol.

This particular version poured a dark, ruby brown with a thin white head and a wispy lace.
The aroma was strong and spicy, plenty of malts and sweetness were present as well. The first sip contained plenty of fruity flavors. Raisins and cherries dominated with a spicness in the end with plenty of alcohol presence. The thick and syrupy body was sticky and sweet. This came off as a milder version of the Mad Elf. Less cherries and sweetness than the Elf, but a similar syrupy feel. Overall, it was a bit to thick and sticky for my liking, but was still pretty good. B-

    I agree about it being a milder version of Mad Elf.
