If you like doublebocks then you will enjoy this beer. It is very easy to drink for a beer over 8%.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Troegenator starts with a rich malty aroma with hints of caramel. A clear reddish amber with a tan head that sticks with the glass. Big yeasty bread tastes and linger roasted malts, perhaps a hint of vanilla or wood. Full body with creamy texture and soft, tiny carbonation that still has enough gas to make you "Urp." Some hoppish bitterness much later on the finish.
fyi: the bottle image and beer colour appearing here are not representative of my last 2 years with this beer.

Bottle from zathrus13. Reddish amber colored with light beige foam that stickes to the glass. Interesting malty aroma with caramel and bready notes. Toasted and roasted flavors with some bitterness but somewhat it is lacking maltiness as I am use to in dopplebocks. This beer start strong but leave you on your appetite. I am little disapointed with its flavors. Thanks Jeff!

Pours amber red, head disappears quickly. On the heavy side with a sweet roasted caramel flavor. Better for colder days, a bit heavy for my taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice cloudy light brown appearance.
Very light aroma. Smooth going down.
Mild woody taste. Winey sweet/sour aftertaste,
which I'm not fond of. Not my style.

Cold 12oz. emptying a brilliant amber with moderate carbonation reducing to thin fizz. Lots of molassess over malts with raisiny inflections. As aromas denote, a similar lush and chewy palate. Balanced crisp finish. 5 left to sample at varied temp.

This would be a lot better is the alcohol content were reduced to around 5-5.5%. AVB
