The Troegenator has awoken! After hibernating for six months in bourbon barrels, we’re excited to report that Bourbon Barrel-Aged Troegenator is ready for release today at 11am.

750ml, Dec 2013
Un marked Tulip

A: Deep orange amber color. Fairly still. Slight head on it. Alcohol feet on the glass.

S: Honestly, don't remember much here but know that I wasn't blown away by the nose. Got some bourbon booze heat. Some vanilla notes as well. Wasn't as malty as I was expecting. Been a while since Troeganator.

T: Much like nose...

M: Big medium.

Bottle shared thanks to Maakun. Clear dark caramel pour with a thin tan head. Heavy bourbon smell, with vanilla, chocolate, caramel following. Sweet, with a lot of bourbon notes, some coconut and vanilla, caramel. Medium body, low carbonation and a sweet and alcoholic finish.

Very happily pounced upon this beer at the brewery as we were headed north and I had looked forward to visiting this brewery. I like the regular Troeg and this stuff is appreciably better and that is saying a lot. I wound up buying more to take to Maine to share with friends. Good stuff.

Pours dark rust-brown with minimal head or lacing from bottle to glass. Smells of sweet liquor and malt. Taste is sweet, more like rum than bourbon, with malt, hops, abundant vanilla, and some faint raisin, plum or grape at the end. Quite good. Not sure I'd buy it again, but good for a one time $17 a bottle limited edition. Feels a touch boozy but soft and finish doesn't linger and isn't resiny or thick at all.

Opens with ressounding pop out of the bottle, corkage action. Hazed caramel with a pinky of tan head. Fantastic lacing and head retention

S: Bourbon, dark fruit, plums, figs,

T: Follows the nose, dryness and brown sugar up front. Bourbon, leafy hops, much dryness , plenty of figs and raisin as thos warms. Finishes dry, figgy with a little brown bread

MF; Chewy, fairly firm carbonation

Drinks great for the slant on the style. Well executed
