Presentation: Very cool label with extremely eye-catching graphics, font, and color scheme. Gives ABV info, web info, a bit of brewery info. States that this is “Hand crafted by the Troegs Brothers”. Neck label has Troegs logo and web info.

Appearance: I poured this from its 12oz bottle into a 14oz Pokal glass. Pours out a deep amber red color with a 1½ finger tan off white foam head of an airy density. Head retention was 2min 46sec before fading to a thick frothy coating. Lacing was minimal.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of dark fruit and a bit of sweet caramel malts. Slight hits of cinnamon are detectable as well.

Flavor/Taste: Taste is malty with hints of dark fruits and a caramel malt sweetness. An underlying spiciness hits the palette next before finishing with a roasted nutty malt taste. Has a slight hop backbone.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with a smooth crisp ever so slightly creamy mouthfeel. Extremely drinkable.

Overall/Comments: Wow! This brew was a real treat and excellent on every level. Extremely tasty with a fairly complex build. Troegenator came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Classified as a Doppelbock at 8.2% ABV. Consumed 1-31-13.

Troegs can do no wrong, even with this iteration, which seems just a tiny bit too sweet. If there's such a thing as a session doublebock, this would fill the bill. I prefer their hoppy ales but this is very nice for what it it tries to be. I could get into this on a snowy winter evening, especially with a little less sweetmess/
