Lately I’ve been on a Doublebock kick. I don’t know why, but I’m really enjoying this style of beer. So, last week in my local beer store I saw the Troegs Doublebock, I had to give it a try especially since I’ve liked most of the beers from Troegs I’ve had.
Give this beer a gentle pour, easing into a heavy pour to give a nice thick head.
A clear mahogany color awaits you with a thin residual head. Looked fairly carbonated with a nice steady stream of bubbles.
Sweet and fruity with a bit of fig. Had a hard time with this beer picking out the aromas, nothing was very dominating.
A touch of caramel sweetness paired with a bit of fig, finishing with a big malty presence. I liked the fizz and the warmth of the beer as it went down.
Nice and smooth, the 8.2% abv was well balanced with the malt, but still present. I found this to be a good example of the style.
Tasting Method: 22oz Bottle
