look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Ruby red color, clear, formed a decent head that quickly disappeared. Mid way through I saw lacing after drinking to see it disappear quickly. Could see carbonation coming up the whole time.

Smell: Very balanced. No malt or hop pronounced. Very subdued and balanced, maybe only the lightest in hops when hunting so a low alpha hop used?

Taste: Smooth bock. At 8.2% ABV well concealed on a 8/10. No malt or hop jumping out. A touch of sweetness towards the end of the beer.

Mouth feel: Medium body.

Overall: If did brew my own beer, might buy on occasion.

The moment the weather begins to turn a bit cooler, right at the end of the summer, I start to crave a beer like this. Especially after a season of IPA's and crisp Pilsners.

This beer sits all spring and summer long looking at me. I know how good it is but I keep it waiting for those first cool nights, then later when the cold comes and the fire place is well broken in.

Sweet--but not cloying, biscuity, just a kiss of good boozyness. This malt beauty is like comfort food.

Originally "built" by monks for extended fasts, they called this style "liquid bread."

Troegs crafts a great beer that keeps reinforcing the fact they just don't know how to brew a bad beer.

Enjoy. I did.

Appearance - dark appearance is very traditional of doublebock beer, very nice head that disappears very slowly

Taste - Troegenator has a very distinct taste, a very full beer. I sense hints of nutmeg, Carmel, A distinct after taste, in a good way. This beer to me on tap was very smooth and had a very different taste from the bottle. On tap the beer is much smoother than from a bottle, from a bottle, the beer taste kind of stale compared to on draft.

Mouthfeel- Very heavy in alcohol and you can feel it in the texture in your mouth after a few of them. Very distinct taste fills your mouth, kind of a fullness and very flavorful dark fruit filling

Overall this beer is probably my favorite, I love the rich taste of it and living in harrisburg currently has allowed me to try all the troegs beers in the tasting room. This is definitely a beer worth trying, it will be unlike many beers you have ever tried.
