3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper color with light brown head. Toffee caramel molasses aroma. Flavor is rich molasses, boozy malty, hp balance comes next. This beer is all about the malt though.. Very tasty to sip, harsh if you take a big gulp of it. Troegs has food pairing recommendations that sound pretty good on their web page, I think I will try them next time.

Pours a nice brown with a medium head. Pretty thick in body with enough carbonation to prevent stickiness. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side, but expected for the style. Caramel is the way out front. Finish is sweet, but not cloyingly so. A good dopplebock.

Yes please! Poured from a can! Big sudsy head, uneven dark amber color. Decent lacing but not over the top. Butterscotch aroma, can really smell the hard liquor taste that’s coming. Biting on the swallow, but delicious, creamy, good ABV.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Have been meaning to try a Tröegs beer, so was glad to spot the Troegenator at a Remke market here in Cincinnati, Ohio. I brought home a single 12-ounce bottle and poured it into a goblet. Pours a translucent, dark warm brown, with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma of molasses and caramel. Flavors are very nice: quite sweet, bready and malty, with some underlying spice and really sweet, juicy fruit notes. This beer has a very pleasant texture, feeling a little bit thick, with an above-medium body; but it still feels quite drinkable. I dig it!
