A- 4 Pours a nice mahogany color with a small but smooth khaki head. It isn't really sticky, and there is smooth sheet lacing. It is barely transparent. The head pretty much disappears halfway through the glass.
S- 4 This has a good, pleasant aroma to it. Roasted malts first come to mind but there is a definite spiciness as well. The combination is reminiscent of spicy/sweet holiday bread.
T- 4 There aren't really any surprises here as the brew's aroma was telling. It starts out tasting of roasted malt, and through the drink more and more of those spices come into play. It is sweet from the malt initially but turns to the spice (almost like a mild all-spice and cinnamon combo) and balances out nicely. I detect a slight booziness on the finish.
M- 4.5 Troegenator has a big smooth and creamy feel to it. Carbonation is just right. There's a trace of syrup on the finish and I feel it is medium-full in body. That said, it is great for the style.
D- 4 I definitely enjoyed this brew. It has a fairly strong aroma/taste combination that would be quite satisfying when in the mood. I feel it would be better enjoyed in the colder months like a winter ale would be (June at time of review). I could see myself having a few of these at that time, but probably no more than one or two right now. It is bold, but it is solid.

Pours a decent beige head that quickly fades to a thin remnant. Brew is a brilliant copper-caramel color, dark but very clear.
Tons of toffee and caramel in the aroma, plus dark fruits: figs and grapes.
Flavor follows the nose: sweet raisins and grapes, chewy bready malts, tons of caramel and brown sugar. A bit of rum raisin meets fruitcake.
Long, long sticky finish from a light but creamy body. Extremely easy drinking, with no hint of the high ABV, and little sting.
Very tasty dopplebock.
