3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
9/04/2008: Troegenator has a grainy, watery manure-like aroma that has some generic beer maltiness but is quite weak overall. This beer is sweet, roasty, and malt with that typical Germal Doppelbock-like character and some slight tobacco. This beer has a transparent borwn color and a carmelized beige-colored head and decent lacing. It is medium to medium-full in body and is slightly syrupy. Overall is has a solid Doppelbock flavor and is good, but not great.
12 fl. oz. bottle (8.2 alc/vol). Rating #596 for this beer.

On tap at dingle house. Dark brown tan head, okay lacing. Hints of roasted nut and caramel floral undertones. Only mild sweetness then a bitter dry raisin finish. Alcohol hidden okay but still drinks strong.

This beer is maintaining my nutritional needs just fine. Smells pretty terrible, but a good doublebock beer. The horned guy on the label may give me unplesant dreams.

Hazy mahogany color; small head. The aroma has some caramel and some chemicals, off-flavors. Medium body strength, caramel flavor, quite sweet, with medium sweetness, but unfortunately still with this medicinal trace. Mediocre.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep reddish amber with a thick brown head. Aroma is full of dark grain notes with perhaps a slight undertone of nut. Flavor has the same dark grain notes through out and is a bit one note.

Bottle as an extra from beer club...thanks guys! Pours a deep copper that is nearly still.. First taste exudes a future wobbly time in your life. In other words alcohol is up front and lets you know that you just may be in for it. Nose of sugary caramel and some cotton candy bits. Body is tacky and leaves some film behind. No head...a bit of a let down.

Poured orange-red with a small head. Armoa was caramel-sweet mixed with a yeasty funk. Palate was deep but smooth. Taste was caramelly-sweet, almost honey-like. No hop note at all.

Deceptively light. Thin mouth feel. Malts. Rich aftertaste. Easy to drink. Not as powerful as most other double Bocks I’ve had.

Bottle. Pours a nice clean amber with thin, sustained tannish-orange head. Doughy nose. Taste is figs, raisins, dried fruit, dough with a warm boozy finish. Doppelbock certainly isn’t my favorite style but this is a really solid beer.
