Notes/Commercial Description:
The Troegenator has awoken! After hibernating for six months in bourbon barrels, we’re excited to report that Bourbon Barrel-Aged Troegenator is ready for release today at 11am. The barrel-aging process has transformed Troegenator into a lush Double Bock with undertones of vanilla, oak, and toasted coconut amid a warm blanket of tangy bourbon notes.

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.
