A lightly chill hazed fluid as it sits right now. The light brown head has a decent size and retention. It is clear now and there are bits of lace starting to cling as I sip this wonderful nectar. The aroma has a sweet caramel malt core with a banana fruitiness and firm toasted graininess. There are figs and dates as well with a touch of alcohol. Taste is rich, smooth, and malty. Sweet caramel and toffee in the front with a bouquet of dark fruits. Almost Belgian style banana note as well. This is a clean, lagered malt bomb however. Mocha and cocoa powder flowing into more pronounced roasted coffee and grains. Hops are firmly bitter with a crisp dry finish that is clean with just a hint of mint and herbal leafiness. More malt and bread flavors lightly linger. Feel is nicely weighted with a nice thickness that at the same time is highly drinkable and supple. A great overall version of the style and my favorite so far. This beer is always welcome in my house.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a medium brown with a big of haze and a thin off-white head. Low visible carbonation.

S: Caramel and bready malts, sweet booze and some vanilla.

T: Follows the nose: big in the caramelized sugar flavors with a bit of spice. Heavy bready malts. Overall quite sweet but not cloying.

M: Lighter body but sticky mouthfeel, good carbonation sensation, and moderately high alcohol presence.

O: This is pretty tasty, but not a style I go crazy for. And not the best exemplar of the style. With those two opinions in mind, I don't think it's likely that I'll have another, but it was worth trying.

Bought a 6-pack today because they were on sale, put one in the freezer when I got home and left it there a little too long. Oops. This review is be based off the 2nd beer in that 6 pack :)

Overall an enjoyable beer, I think it is best comparable to a Belgian style Dubbel. You can taste the "dark sugar" type sweetness, but not until after the raisin and oakiness registers. The "banana bread" smell everyone is writing about is definitely an accurate observation.

Appearance is a nice clear reddish brown. Minimal patchy lacing, small quickly disappearing head after the pour but carbonation is still there. The 8% abv is noticeable but not too distracting.

Overall, worth a try, but definitely not one of the best brews Troegs puts out.

An interesting take on the style from Troegs.

12 oz. bottle, poured into a tulip (because everything is better in a flower). A finger of yellow-ish cream colored head quickly diminishes to a small ring around the glass, and leaves little to no lacing. Dark, ruby-brown body.

The smell is banana bread first and foremost, followed by raisin and a bit of alcohol. Malt is a little underrepresented.

The taste is sweet, and while I wouldn't say it's cloying, it's definitely up there. Luckily, there's a little carbonation to keep things under control. The flavor is just like the smell, with maybe just a touch of chocolately malt. A bit of lingering sweetness and alcohol warmth, but an otherwise one-dimensional brew.

It's not bad, but Troegs has plenty of better options in its lineup. Troegenator is not my cup of tea (beer), nor is it quite right within the doppelbock style.
