4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of sweet wild cherries, candi sugar, mild licorice, some alcohol . Dark brown almost ruby red, well filtered. First malt sweetness, this is weird of me to say but some oak follows through, sweet cherries, mild booze. Full on the palate. This is a nice after dinner digestive. Very nice.

eep red color, lightly carbonated, syrupy full mouth coating body. good malt taste, complementing yet submissive hop bitterness. Not one to turn down.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Winking Lizard. Pours a nice copper red color that’s really quite appealing. Aroma is pretty good with sweet malts, raisins, handfruits, and a subtle nuttiness. Taste is sort of a letdown; the complexity from the aroma is replaced with a pretty straightforward malty caramel flavor. Creamy and full-bodied. Could have been better.

22 oz bomber. Pours a beautiful ruby red/mahogany color with a thin white head. Nice malty aroma that is accentuated with slight sweet notes and some spices. Medium to light body with a nice slight chewiness to it. Very drinkable especially for 8.2% ABV. Sweetness up front gives way to slight maltiness that finishes ever so slightly dry with a hint of sweet spice. Really well balanced and extremely enjoyable! Overall: (A)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle; Aroma strong of alcohol and malt. Flavor is very sweet and almost too sweet for me as I like bitter beer better. The palate warms you up as it finishes and turns ever so slightly to bitter. Good alcohol content! Not my favorite style of beer but good for what its worth.

Troegs accomplishes the amazing feat of brewing quintessential examples of every style they try. This doppel defines craftmanship. Excellent balance of strong malt and hop flavors with a slight smoke taste. Not my fave style or fave brew from Troegs, but really, really well done. Like all Troegs, it's not pasteurized so the clean, fresh, bready flavors really shine through.

Troegs is an excellent brewery. Troegenator is malty and bready in flavor with a knock out punch. Could easily pass for a German doppelbock.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An amberish-honey colored beer with a tan head of densely packed bubbles. Aroma is a bit funky and redonlent of molasses. Medium rich mouthfeel, smooth and sweet. Could use a bit more hops to finish it off, but a tasty bock nevertheless.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle into dimpled mug - sampled 3/9/10) Poured a flat reddish brown with a one finger head that fell fairly fast. Scents of the rich molasses and toffee took over at first and with a little sit, some heady fruit odors came forward, in particular some raisin. A nice medium body with a small carbonation enhances the flavors that come through, again the molasses, and actually a hint of melted butter, which, while off putting at first, grew on me. The alcohol is definitely present, which serves to warm you up quite a bit, leaving you quite content after drinking. I wouldn’t recommend any more than 2 at a sitting, however!
