Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, Troegenator is a deep amber-crimson color with a thin, fading head that dissipates until all that is left is small amounts of fine carbonation that rise lazily to the top of the glass. The nose is all malt; sweet molasses and toasty-bready notes dominate, sweet alcohol lies just percievably above the radar. The flavor is also all malt and alcohol, I pick up some black licorice notes that I didn't notice in the nose. The mouthfeel is full bodied with minimal carbonation. The finish is slick and the alcohol has a warming sensation. Overall, a well done dopplebock. Definitely a good one for a cold winter's night!

12oz bottle poured into a Ommegang chalice glass.

Appearance- Ruby red in color with 1 finger of off white head that slowly dissipates leaving some spotty lacing.

Smell- Dark fruit with bread malt and carmel are the most prevalent.

Taste- Just like the nose minus the carmel. Dark fruit is what really shines with a small boozy finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium body with decent carbonation. Drinks kind of like a carbonated red wine.

Overall- Nice middle of the road sessionable doppelbock.

A- Pours an attractive dark reddish brown with a thin off-white head.

S- various fruits (banana seems to be in there, but it doesn't dominate), nutty, caramel, malts, cinnamon.

T- Sweet, dark fruits, very malty, cinnamon, and possibly some vegetables
that may just be me though.

M- Medium to heavy body, low carbonation.

O- Very flavorful and complex beer. It's also a very drinkable doppelbock. Another great beer from Troegs.

A: deep amber/rust color with a khaki head that quickly mellows into a thin, patchy film.

S: very sweet with candy-like similarity. Orchard apples and cidar are present with the hops only an afterthought in terms of smell as a whole. Despite a higher alcohol content, it does nothing to in anyway hinder the aroma of this beer.

T: a very quick, subtle bite of bitterness and hops in the initial sips. This quickly dissipates into a sweet, toasty flavor profile with plum, butterscotch and caramel dominating the pleasantly dry finish. About 15-20 seconds after swallowing, an almost vegetable characteristic is present, like squash or zucchini. Maybe it's just me.

M: very soft and mellow considering the high alcohol content. Definitely a deceptive brew, meant to be sipped and enjoyed over a period of time. Even though bubbles are very active in terms of rising to the top, there is very little carbonation present in the taste and mouthfeel.

O: all in all, a very solid Doppelbock. A little sweet for my taste, but the flavor profiles present are very appealing. Definitely worth drinking again in front of the fire on a cold day off.
