Pours like coca cola. Tastes very smooth, very delicious malty brew. I enjoyed it very much. Carbonated palate, had a great texture going down. Definetely could taste the alcohol in this one. Very good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cold bottle from Beach Liquors, Bethany , De. whiskey brown color, off whit head with thin short-lived laceSpicey malt aromea with slight acid alcohol sharpness. Rich-malty round flavor, caramel, chocolate, some wood and raison. Reminiscent of Unibroue Terrible or even a light version of DFH Raison d’Etre. crisp finish. I’ll drink at least 4 of these...

4.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle, aroma is rich malt with lots of dark fruit, raisins and plums, taste is lucious silk malt flavor. Raisins and plums and crusty bread flavor. Silky mouth feel, medium body medium carbonation. Delicious beer right up there with ayinger captivator.

Very bready taste, and suprisingly smooth for the alcohol content. Not my favorite, but would surely drink again

I prefer the Heller style - but had to try this. It is serviceable. The aroma is the best part. Comes off very nice with all the scents you’d expect. That was the highlight. Everything else was average. It almost felt like a stout. too much alcohol taste that they evidently tried to mask but the sweetness used was a bit too much. May buy again to reassess - for now, its just ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown with medium tan head. Aromas of citrus, bread, toast. Roasty, lightly sweet, light bitterness - medium body. Average carbonation with slick texture and long finish. This is a good malty beer.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A terrific doublebock if ever there was one. Little head, nice, full-bodied flavor, and an 8.2% ABV. I like high octane brews, but the flavor in this one truly wins out over the buzz. One of my all time faves.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow! A pleasent surprise. My first brew from this brewery. Have to be careful with this one. Taste so good you forget about the 8.2. And that my friend will cause you a world of hurt.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle pours to a copper color. Strong malty aroma with nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet and full body. Very drinkable and with a 8.2% ABV kick. I definitely liked this one. Another good beer from Troegs.

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.
