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.

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.

Pour is a hazed copper brown with ruby edges and a small amount of tan head. Nose has a fair bit of bourbon up front, very sweet malts of caramel and dark berry, and hints of boozy. Taste is similar, a bit less bourbon, still very sweet. Sticky caramel and lots of sweet berry malt with a touch of root beer. Medium body, smooth and soft, assertive carbonation.

75cl, no mention of ABV, as Troegenator (aged in Bourbon Barrels), new exclusive American brew Anno 2014, thx alot to Secret Santa!, complex brew, sweet/alcoholic/malty and slightly fruity/spicy, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, yet very expensive!

Pours a dark brown color with off-white head. Dark fruits, bourbon, oak, and some vanilla and coconut on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice sweet note and a little heat from the alcohol.

Growler shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Loads of bourbon in this one. Slight tartness and belgian yeast. Sweet toasted coconut in the finish. Boozy and tasty.

750 mL bottle. Pours a deep ruby red color with a very brief tan head that disappears. Just by looking at the pour and the slow bubbles coming up, it appears as though this one is pretty thick. Lots of aromas here: vanilla, oak, alcohol, caramel, toffee & malt. Medium-full bodied, really sticks with you. Taste of caramel, toffee and malt. Also getting some bourbon & wood. The finish is sweet with a slight alcohol burning. Overall, a great beer, glad they still had some when I got there. I tried to hold out on this but I couldn’t resist. Well done!

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bland color; zero head/lace. Overly sweet, artificial vanilla, barrel at the end, all sorts of meh. Pass.

A nice Bourbon aroma. The taste is full of Bourbon and cherries, a phenomenal beer. I’d have again.

Bottle shared by Bruce. Aroma of butterscotch, chocolate malt, and whiskey. Pours bock grey brown with not much head or carb. Taste is neat with a Swiss chocolate, butterscotch, and caramel whiskey taste. A little unbalanced but a neat offering. Not as amazing as I was hoping.
