Very nice bock, big flavor. I would market this as a seasonal; has holiday spices galore, pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Pour is a deep read with hardly any head. Smell is of malts and caramel. Very earthy. Taste begins with the caramel, but ends with a bit of malt sweetness and dark fruits. Medium bodied with a bit of a bite of carbonation. Also, I get a small amount of creaminess, but not a lot. Hardly a hint of any alcohol.

Deep amber, mahogany with a one-finger off-white head. Lacing is temporary.
Very nice bready, creamy malt aroma. Caramel, mashed apples, and tea.
Taste is very much like the aroma. This is a good doppelbock. Very bready/yeasty with rich fruits. Overripe red apples and caramel and some pine. Rich and complex sweet malt flavors swirling around in there. Well done.

Dark caramel color, very little head. Sweet but balanced. Boozy nose and finish.

This beer is nothing to write home about. It is very similar to a Shiner Bock in my opinion. Light caramel taste. Very smooth, not much bite.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2003 Poured a clear, beautiful copper brown color with an off-white head. It tasted malty and a little sweet but without the alcohol taste I was expecting. It's definitely a good american-brewed doppelbock.

Dark amber colored beer with a nice off white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with some hints of alcohol. Really malty and does a good job of masking the alcohol content with a rich sweetness. Great doppel.

Pours a dark amber brown. Wonderful malt sweetness, with some nice dark notes in there. Great, non-hoppy beer.
