The troegenator just dominated me. Completely overwhelming strength in my opinion, but this rating is rather biased because mine was slighlty warm. Anyways, besides the fact it was tough to take down, it had not lived up to the full-bodied description. This was more a rush of alcohol with little consistency or balance. Perhaps a bad one from the batch ... or maybe I just have problems. iggynelix (168) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2010
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. tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2004
Amber/brown clear body with a large beige sudsy head that has good duration and a fair lace. Malty caramel aroma with a light hint of hop and alcohol. Some good toasty notes are in there. Starts with a dominant caramel malty sweetness and mild fruitiness. Has a bit of hop balance but definitely sweeeet. Alcohol is masked well. Medium body, juicy mouthfeel finishes lighty bitter. Enjoyable brew, enjoyable price. Tricountybeer (167) - Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2012
poured from a bottle, off white diminishing head, spare lacing ruby color average to bread malt, heavy in the hop area , full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, great winter beer, warming and flavorful ALCOHOLNIZM (165) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - MAY 3, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2011 THIS RED COPPER BEER WITH TONS OF HEAD AND SWEET CARAMEL AROMA IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR EVERY ONE, BUT I PERSONALY ENJOY IT. IT HAS A NICE BALANCE OF RICH SWEET TOASTED CARAMEL MALT FLAVORS LACED WELL WITH LICORICE ROOT AND A HINT OF CHERRIES. NOT NORMALY MY FAVORITE FLAVORS YET REALLY PUT TOGETHER NICELY THE STRONG FLAVORS ARE ROBUST YET NOT OVER POWERING, THE ONLY DOWN SIDE I SEE IS THAT THIS IS A SPRING SEASONAL BEER, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE ORIGIN OF BOCK BEERS WAS WHEN MONKS WERE FASTING DURING THE SPRING THEY WOULD DRINK BOCKS, HOWEVER I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT COLD WINTER BEER.NEVER THE LESS STILL ANOTHER HIT BY TROEGS!

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2009 Smells like alcohol and malt. Tastes very malty, just enough hops for a nice finish. Above average for a doublebock. For the price (8 bucks for a sixer), it is a great deal. Underhook (162) - Lincoln Park, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Not a lot of aroma coming from this beer. Dark mahogany color with a super thick, large brown head -- delicious. Excellent mouthfeel, super creamy, fabulous texture with almost no carbonation. Taste is a malty, toasted coffee with a prune undernote. Very good doppelbock, super enjoyable, but the rating is hurt by a lack of aroma on the pour.

I really dig this beer. It’s rich and sweet without being cloying or overly heavy. The alcohol is present just enough to compliment the malt. Very happy with this one books_n_brews (162) - Baltimore-ish, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Deep red pour med tan head. Smells of very lightly of yeast and fruit. Tastes thick and solid of fruit jam notes and bready. Coats the tongue. I can’t decide if I love it or hate it. FatguyRacer (160) - Crownsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours a nice cola brown color with a small khaki head that disappears quickly. Nice aroma of malts, moca and alcohol. Taste is pretty good. Nice blend of roasted malt, dark fruit, spice, dark breads and bitter hops on the finish. Sweet, but not overpowering. I’m glad i bought a sixer of this. Very drinkable.
