A new beer we have on tap at Mudville 9 is Troegs Troegenator. Troegenator pours into the glass in a very dark mahogany color that is rather beautiful as a beer. There is also very little head when poured into the glass. It smells of dark fruits with a hint of smoke/roasted flavor.
Taking the first sip, I detect a heavy hand of that same dark fruit flavor that came through in the scent. It is medium-bodied with a malty goodness up front. There is a hint of sweetness that melds with the alcohol to yield a rum-like spiciness. The beer is very thick and has an 8.2% ABV. This beer would pair very well with a dessert or you can drink it as your dessert!
