2016/10/16 - Pours a clear, deep amber colour with a thick, foamy, khaki head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet dough, caramel malt, toasted toffee, banana, molasses, hints of vanilla and dark fruits (prunes, figs and raisin). Taste follows nose, banana bread, caramel, roasted notes, molasses, prunes, figs and light booze. Mouthfeel is medium to full and sticky, with smooth carbonation and a sweet, slightly herbal finish. Sweet, full flavoured and smooth.

12 oz bottle with a BB date of 2/2017. sturmthis (1195) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2016
Pours with a beautiful, clear copper v=colored body topped by a durable beige head. Sheets of lacing upon tipping the glass.
I often find beers of this style to be too sweet or too hot (boozy) -- this excellent version has neither of these flaws. The mouthfeel is essentially perfect to boot.
Overall: excellent, world-class version of the style
16oz can. Bronze color with one finger off white head. Bready, dark fruit, caramel aroma. Taste is pretty similar, ends malty. Pretty good. ronaldtheriot (2009) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Troegenator has a thick, beige head, a hazy, caramel color, bubbles, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of strong, slightly fruity, brown bread malts, and the taste is of intense, strong bread crust, heavy malt flavor, some syrup, plum, figs, and dates. Fairly strong hop bitterness shows up, too. Mouthfeel is syrupy and rather heavy, and Troegenator falls between wet and dry. RJT
