Dark and smooth and smooth and dark. This is the kind of beer that will get you in trouble! This beer pours nice and dark with a decent head and a dark fruit smell. Basically tastes like it smells, with a plum/raisin flavor and medium carbonation. I could drink these all night, but I probably shouldn't!

A - dark ruby amber with a thin, off white head

S - lager yeast, caramel, sugar

T - sugar, caramel, sweet, yeast

M - medium to full bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a really nice doppelbock. It has a rich, deep, sweet malt character and a complex overall flavor. This was enjoyable throughout. I would definitely have this again.

I fell in love with this beer years before I was ever able to try it, due to the "Troegenator" character. I love seeing the goatman bar light in random bars throughout PA.

Troegenator pours a dark, rudy red color with a half inch caramel head that disappears after a minute or so. Smells of candied fruit and just plain sweetness. I get a whiff of something that resembles raspberry jam! Taste follows the nose... very sweet, with a nice bready kind of taste to it. Slight hop presence ties it all together. Slight boozy-ness lingers, which I guess is on par with the ABV. I don't drink this style too often, but I can't imagine picking another of its ilk over Troegenator.

Poured a clear amber colour with almost no head.

The smell is malt heavy, caramel with some dark fruits.

The taste is roasted malts, coffee, caramel and dark fruits.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little syrupy but very smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Overall definitely one of the better doppelbocks out there. Very enjoyable and hides the alcohol very well.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint. Deep ruby brown with a tan cap which quickly subsides to nothing. Poor to no lacing.

Smell is the highlight of this beer in my opinion. Rich sourdough and fig with a mild nuttiness. Very nice.

Taste follows the nose, but possibly with an over-emphasis on the dark dried fruits. A hint of molasses and brown sugar. Minimal hoppiness, but true to style.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Very solid for a doppel.

Overall one of, if not the best American doppelbocks. Quality beer at an affordable price. This is also the beer that got me into beer as I know it now.
