2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Kclinger’s publik house in Etters, PA. Pours an orangey amber color with minimal white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Malty, sweet (overly sweet in my opinion) flavor with a slight hop punch at the finish. The alcohol is palpable. Not very drinkable.

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.

The troegenator just dominated me. Completely overwhelming strength in my opinion, but this rating is rather biased because mine was slighlty warm. Anyways, besides the fact it was tough to take down, it had not lived up to the full-bodied description. This was more a rush of alcohol with little consistency or balance. Perhaps a bad one from the batch ... or maybe I just have problems.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber/brown clear body with a large beige sudsy head that has good duration and a fair lace. Malty caramel aroma with a light hint of hop and alcohol. Some good toasty notes are in there. Starts with a dominant caramel malty sweetness and mild fruitiness. Has a bit of hop balance but definitely sweeeet. Alcohol is masked well. Medium body, juicy mouthfeel finishes lighty bitter. Enjoyable brew, enjoyable price.

Gorgeous deep ruby amber. Dried dark fruit aroma: cherries, prunes. Flavor is sweet biscuit and loads of cherry, plum, some raisin, and a hint of dark chocolate. Thick chewy mouth feel. Slightly drying finish but still very sweet. Low carbonation and warming from the alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2011 THIS RED COPPER BEER WITH TONS OF HEAD AND SWEET CARAMEL AROMA IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR EVERY ONE, BUT I PERSONALY ENJOY IT. IT HAS A NICE BALANCE OF RICH SWEET TOASTED CARAMEL MALT FLAVORS LACED WELL WITH LICORICE ROOT AND A HINT OF CHERRIES. NOT NORMALY MY FAVORITE FLAVORS YET REALLY PUT TOGETHER NICELY THE STRONG FLAVORS ARE ROBUST YET NOT OVER POWERING, THE ONLY DOWN SIDE I SEE IS THAT THIS IS A SPRING SEASONAL BEER, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE ORIGIN OF BOCK BEERS WAS WHEN MONKS WERE FASTING DURING THE SPRING THEY WOULD DRINK BOCKS, HOWEVER I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT COLD WINTER BEER.NEVER THE LESS STILL ANOTHER HIT BY TROEGS!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a lot of aroma coming from this beer. Dark mahogany color with a super thick, large brown head -- delicious. Excellent mouthfeel, super creamy, fabulous texture with almost no carbonation. Taste is a malty, toasted coffee with a prune undernote. Very good doppelbock, super enjoyable, but the rating is hurt by a lack of aroma on the pour.
