look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle, no dating that I could find, poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pours a cystal clear dark amber color, almost brown but not quite. The head formed one finger thick, and retained nicely.
Aroma: Very sweet dark fruits with some alcohol.
Taste: Sweet caramel malts up front transitions to dark fruit in the middle. The fruit turns dry in the finish, lingering for a little bit. There's also a slight alcohol warming at the end.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied but very smooth, almost creamy. The carbonation was subdued, and with the strong flavors that fit nicely.
Overall: This would taste excellent on a cold winter's night. A little sweet for my taste, but I still enjoyed it.

A: Looks good! Deep amber with moderate carbonation and a substantial off-white head.
S: Not much to the aroma. Sweet malts with a hint of biscuit. Lots of alcohol.
T: This is way left on the malt-to-hop scale. The malts contribute a gently sweet and even lightly toasted biscuit character. To me, almost no hops can be found. Throughout the last half of the taste, the booze dominates. Not very light on the palate.
M: Surprisingly creamy. Has a decent medium body with a slightly watery finish..
O: I enjoy bocks and the rest of the lager family, but doppelbocks aren't my favorite. Just a little too harsh for my taste. The Troegenator is actually a decent double bock; don't let me put this down for you. For me, I find that the flavor isn't balanced enough with hops to compensate for the high alcohol content. For the style, this beer is above average, but it can be found pretty much anywhere. If you're a fan of high-gravity lagers, check this one out!
