Bottles in trade form Hopdog and Leftmindedrighty. Thanks!
Pours a dark clear reddish color with a smallish creamy beige head. Smell is lightly smoky and sweet, musty malts. Tastes lightly smoky and a touch tart with toasty biscuity and caramel maltiness. Slight taste of alcohol in the finish. Full body and soft to medium carbonation. Pretty good beer, but just don’t think I was in the mood for this today.

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.

Aroma: Hints of caramel and nuts, but very faint.
Appearance: Clear dark amber with thin head.
Taste: Medium-heavy sweetness with sour aftertaste.
Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, low carbonation and minimum finish.
Overall: It’s decent and drinkable, but I’m not blown away.
