12 oz bottle. Pours a dark, reddish amber. Thin tan head. Malty, caramel aroma. Initial sweetness that finishes with a good bit of spice. Certainly bready but somewhat oily.

Very heavy beer that packs a punch. Tried at the troegs brewery from the tap. Will leave you very full from drinking. Somewhat close to the texture of a porter.

Flavor: Nutty, Cararmel, Malty, Earthy. It has an aroma to match. The color is a lovely borwn. Overall it’s a sipping beer that’s not too strong and just the right balance.

Had this at a beer club meeting with many other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.

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.

Good hop malt balance. Body is a little lacking. Finish is clean. An enjoyable beer overall.

Strong beer, the alcohol is definitely present. It has a very odd and strong taste that just doesn’t do it unless youre in the mood for it.

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.
