Can’t have the Governator because of Arnie so I guess I’ll have to settle for the Troegenator. This is a very smooth flavorful beer. Not chewy but rich and strong malts. Very nice beer. Troegs doesn’t disappoint.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper-colored, with a good head and lace. Aroma of malt, some hops, caramel, and fruit. Tastes bold, complex, with hints of malt, caramel, fruit, and cabernet. Nice balance. A good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At first I didn?t think I could finish the whole six pack as I found the doppelbock to be a hard beer to drink, I got used to it over time. Pretty harsh and heavy to drink at first for an amatuer. Not the best example of the style.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Waaaaaay too hoppy for the style............... Although this beer demonstrates good malty character, it is overshadowed by hoppy finish. Bocks and dopplebocks are clasically malty, sweet, and full-bodied with no real hint of hops throughout the tasting experience. This beer has hops apparent in the finish.

Bottled. This stuff is dangerously drinkable for an 8.2% beer and has loads of caramel and chocolate in the flavor. I like it more than most doppelbocks I’ve tried.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle) Mondial de la Bière 2004. Thin, oily, yellow head with an orane body. . Nose of butter, malt and alcohol. Smooth malt flavour that is thin, plain and lifeless. The logistics in coordinating the shipping of this beer is far greater than the complexity of the brew.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Raisins, plums, caramel and cardboard in the aroma. Stale? Deep copper with shy off-white head that recedes to light cover. Marginal sudsy lace. Very earthy with subdued fruit. Burnt caramel, toffee. Medium body. Low carbonation. Fairly straight forward and simple and felt somehow stale. Bottle (Sample at Mondial 2004).

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2011 2011-08-10. Very dark brown body wiht a small beige head. 3+ Malty, sugary character, fruity. 7+ Aroma is sweet and fruity, bit alcoholic. 6+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Decent. 7/4/7/3/14
On tap at Goodbar, Buffalo
2004-06-XX. Bottle. Dark red amber with a smallish off white head. Bit of stale cardboard in the aroma indicates that this may not be the freshest bottle around. Flavour has some nice sweet malt and some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Disappointingly restrained doppelbock. Giving it the benefit of the doubt, it may be better on a different day. Hides the alcohol content quite well. Mondial 3T (Radek). 4/3/5/3/12

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a bright amber color with a big slightly off-white head. Smokey aroma that enveloped a slightly hidden sweet. When I tasted it, I did not know what the ABV was, and I’m surprised to see it’s 8.2% for the way it tasted. A nice sweet malt beginning with a biscuity followup and a smooth, smokey finish. Goes down smooth and hides the alcohol well.
