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.

Poured into snifter. Not a ton of head, but nice color, though. Smell is raisiny, musty, fairly earthy. The taste is not bad, just not anything overly spectacular. The mouthfeel is pretty appealing, feels fairly substantial. Overall, this is a nice beer, but not at the top of this great style category. I would have again, but I would maybe look for other d-bocks first. Still, a pretty good brewery.
