Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass at a tasting. Big thanks to K!
Deep chestnut body brown, a bit clear, but with a nice whispy top. Good tan ring with some nice golden yellow hues.
What a fantastic nose on this. Great hazelnut aromas and toast. Creamy vanilla and good controlled warmth and head. Nice amounts of wood and oak, just overall very impressive, with a great nutty angle.
Palate tones things down a bit to bring you back to earth, giving some slightly less impressions. Matching nutty quality with caramel and toffee thick. An interesting palate feel that's lighter and less bold than the nose expects, crisp slightly but still very chewy almost like wheat. Mouthfeel comes interestingly prickly but smooth as well on the finish.
It's overall real impressive, and a neat experiment for a doppel, but it comes out wonderfully.

Pour is a hazed copper brown with ruby edges and a small amount of tan head. Nose has a fair bit of bourbon up front, very sweet malts of caramel and dark berry, and hints of boozy. Taste is similar, a bit less bourbon, still very sweet. Sticky caramel and lots of sweet berry malt with a touch of root beer. Medium body, smooth and soft, assertive carbonation.

Sampling a cellar temp 750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a gift from my brother Brian, thank you!
The beer pours a deep mahogany color with some rich garnet highlights. A fizzy beige head of .5 cm foams up and fades away rapidly after the pour leaving only the thinnest of an edge layer.
Aroma is rich with bourbon, vanilla and molasses. I also get some brown sugar and a bit of plum or other dark fruit.
Very appealing nose, that predicts a big malty brew. I dont have any sense of the booze from the aroma, which is good and potentially dangerous.
First sip reveals a smooth textured body with very fine and spacious carbonation. Each sip leaves a little sticky residue on my lips.
Flavor is what is expected from the nose with sweet malt through and through. I get bourbon and vanilla hits with some brown sugar and just the faintest hint of warm booze after each swallow.
The beer is still very drinkable for 11.5%.
This is a malt lovers beer and probably better to split with a friend, but I am enjoying it a lot and dont have anywhere to go after finishing it so I continue on with this tasty treat.

750ml, Dec 2013
Un marked Tulip
A: Deep orange amber color. Fairly still. Slight head on it. Alcohol feet on the glass.
S: Honestly, don't remember much here but know that I wasn't blown away by the nose. Got some bourbon booze heat. Some vanilla notes as well. Wasn't as malty as I was expecting. Been a while since Troeganator.
T: Much like nose...
M: Big medium.
