Bought a Troeg's variety pack, which includes 6 Troegenators.

Appearance: Red with little head. I'm a poet and didn't realize it.

Smell: Dark fruit. Cherry?

Taste: Very similar to the smell. Tastes to me a lot like Mad Elf's little brother.

Mouthfeel: Little carbonation, but the taste keeps ones mouth watering.

Overall: This has been a beer I've had a hard time saying no to for quite some time. But it's one I've not bought often. Perhaps that should change :)

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.
