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.

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.

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.

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!
