Poured from bottle into a big snifter.

Appearance was a dark brown/chestnut color. Big, fluffy head with pretty big bubbles, cream colored. Didn't last too long but laced well. The beer looks "thick", viscous.

Aroma - holy cow this is fruity! Dark fruit aromas of cherries, figs, dates. As it warms, there is an aroma of molasses and brown sugar.

Taste - wonderful fruit flavors following the nose. Nice level of sweetness. More on the fig/date than cherry, but there is certainly cherry in the flavor. Pretty intense on the brown sugar/molasses as well, especially as it warmed up. So this beer followed the nose pretty well with the layering thing happening. The fruit notes come into play first followed quickly by that sweetness.

The feel was a little syrupy which I found ever so slightly off-putting, but overall very clean on the palate with just that lingering sweetness. I like sweet, so not sure why it bothered me with this particular brew. Not a huge detriment to enjoyment. Alcohol well hidden.

Very good beer - a tiny bit over the top with the overall intensity, but big flavors that are well-layered and a great beer to have with robust food. Paired with beef, roasted taters and winter root vegetables - held its own very well and complimented the meal.

12oz. bottle poured into a CBS Snifter.

Appearance: Dark, brown with a nice foamy 1" head, leaves nice lacing.

Smell: Caramel roasted malt, with hints of dark fruit.

Taste: Rich dark fruit sweetness over a caramel malty backbone, a nice flavorful dopplebock, sweeter than I expected (not necessarily a bad thing) with little to no bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Although on the sweet side, not at all cloying, smooth on the palate.

Overall: Very tasty brew and one I wouldn't mind picking up again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: reddish brown with garnet hues, tan head that disappears fast, good clarity

Aroma: very sweet, breast, thick, like cake batter almost

Taste: thick, malty and sweet with an exceptionally smooth drink ability and finish. Almost no hops or bitterness to speak of, or yeast character. Big, malty, and sweet.

Mouthfeel: slightly chewy and thick, full body, smooth and silly finish

Overall Impression: A nicely made doppelbock that is big, sweet, malty, and bready. Has a cake batter like aroma and a smooth as silk mouthfeel. Great for cold winter nights or to cool off a spicy meal.

Troegenator was one of the first beers I was introduced to when joining the craft beer world, and I loved it.

Pours a thick rich amber brown color with a semitight head of foam.

Smells of biscuit malts and dark dried fruit sweetness, with a touch of alcohol

Woah Nellie!  Holy malt sweetness batman!  Don’t remember it being this sweet and malty.  Super sweet malt and dark dried fruits, just as the nose suggested, dominate the palate.  A hint of warm alcohol on the finish, with a long sweet finish.  Minimal hop presence in this.

Mouthfeel is thick and solid, perfect for the style.

Overall this fits the style, but it was just too much sweetness for me.

From: The Andersons, Columbus, OH
Date: Bottled 2013-05-01
Glass: Ayinger bock glass

A solid doppelbock, Troegenator hits all the right notes: heavy caramel, toasted bread and nuts, and pounds of dried fruit. Its only flaw may be a slightly excessive sweetness, but this is easily looked past for the style. Satisfying, rich, and hearty, this is an excellent beer for a crisp spring, fall, or winter day (or summer, as the unusual July weather may have it). Would definitely get again if this were locally available.

Pours a 1.5cm head of beige to light tan-colored foam, with average retention of about one minute. The head fades to a thick ring around the glass and a few large islands of thin foam/film atop the body of the beer, nearly creating an entire cap (about 90% there). Lacing is minimal to nonexistent, a few dots cling to the sides of the glass. Beer is a very dark amber to mahogany hue, with light bringing out brighter shades of amber reddish-brown. Carbonation is visible through the transparent body, moderate in number

Aroma is quite sweet, of rich brown bread with sweet caramel sauce and dried fruits, particularly dried dates, figs, and raisins.

Overall flavor is of toasted bread with caramel sauce and plenty of toasted nuts and dried dates/figs. Front of palate is quite sweet, with brown sugar and caramel, toasted bread crusts, and slight toasted nuttiness. Mid-palate finds plenty of brown sugar, raisins, dried dates, and brown figs, toasted hazelnuts and almonds, and a rich brown bread with hearty caramelized sugars. Back of palate picks up toasted bread crusts with caramelized sugars, dried dates and brown figs, and very slight ethanol. Aftertaste of brown sugar and caramel with rich, toasted bread crust undertones.

Beer is medium to medium-heavy bodied, with carbonation of medium-low intensity, resulting in a mouthfeel that is lightly foamy and fairly thick and chewy. Little to no ethanol felt in the nostrils or on the throat. Closes semi-dry, with substantial stickiness lingering on the lips and palate, typical for the style.
