COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. The barrel-aging process has transformed Troegenator into a lush Double Bock with undertones of vanilla, oak, and toasted coconut amid a warm blanket of tangy bourbon notes.

Bottle. At blaws. Aroma is musky, oak barrel, vanilla. Medium light sweetness. Below ave carbonation. The vanilla, and oak barrel flavors really come through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (5740) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a minimal fizzy head that vanished completely. The nose is just the right amount of boozy, just enough bourbon and alcohol to let you know it’s barrel aged. Some sweet toffee and caramel malt under the barrel. The flavor is a really nice balance between the sweet toffee and caramel malts and the bourbon flavor. For all the bourbon flavor, the alcohol isn’t all that more prominent than the original version. Some lingering warmth on the finish along with a good bit of oakiness. Rather full bodied with a slight cling and slightly fizzy carbonation. Rather good stuff, glad to see this available without waiting in line anymore!

I’m not a huge doppelbock fan but the barrel aging works well here. Great bourbon aromas. Very lazy pour with almost no head that quickly disappears. A dark clear ruby colored beer. Sweet flavors with good nutty tastes and bourbon in the finish. Medium body and very little carbonation. I really liked this.

Bottle share. Pours a clear dark amber color with small tan sudsy head. Aroma was fairly sweet, dark fruit, vanilla. Flavor was sweet, acidic, some barrel aging notes, plum, raisin. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, sweet and acid like on the finish. Really odd one to me. Hard to describe.

Pours a deep dark woody color with a settled light colored collar dissipating quick. A nutty aroma. Creamy mouthfeel and a boozy back taste almost rum like.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, light caramel, brown sugar, bourbon, oak, and a touch of mint. It pours a dark brown with some red transparency when held to the light. It has a small khaki head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate caramel, light chocolate, and brown sugar. There are some very faint roasty notes in the background. The finish has light-moderate vanilla, bourbon, faint oak, and a touch of mint. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Chris. Lazy pour; cloudy dark brown with a mild ruby tint. Some mild tan foam quickly recedes to a ring. Really nice aroma of caramel candies, vanilla, light butterscotch, hints of wood, cocoa dust, a touch of prune, mild alcohol, & buttery toffee. Flavor is a bit more restrained, but has lots more woody barrel notes with a big tannin presence. Oaky staves wrapped in vanillin, mild molasses, & toffee, showing hints of anise, cocoa dust, & strong bourbon in the finish. Get a touch of prune & black cherry as it fades out, too. Body could be a little heftier, it’s a touch over-carbonated. But overall, a nice beer.

Already one of my favorite doppelbocks, the bourbon barrel aging only added to the flavor. Smooth alcohol, rich sweet malts, bourbon notes, and oak. Yum.
