3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Drank this at Heather’s house on Saturday 2/6/16. Deep brown pour medium off-white head with decent retention. Nose is big malts, raisins, toast, caramel. Mouth is medium-full, decent sweetness, crusty pumpernickel toast, nutty, caramel, chewy. Not bad, but I’ve had better. And the fact they drifted from the German name for the style on the label irritated a couple shades of fuck out if me (especially in a beer from a state that loves to boast about their German heritage.... and fuck the Nittany Lions BTW).

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a can. Pours a clear medium dark mahogany with a large off-white head of foam. Semi-sweet toffee aroma. Minimal carbonation. Light to medium texture. Very smooth. Flavors of caramel and toffee. Not too sweet and they don’t last very long. Smooth finish. Flavors could have been bolder. OK but not great.

Troeganator is a special brew. It pours a beautiful dark amber color with a nice small head. I don't detect much by way of scent, which is odd, but this beer is smooth from start to finish. Really, really clean.
