Review: Troegs Double Blizzard and Grand Cacao

The end of the year sees Hershey, Pennsylvania-based Troegs trotting out its most prized beers, including a sampler pack of winter-friendly brews. We look at two of those beers here, both of which are also available individually as well.

Troegs Double Blizzard – “A semi-hazy Double IPA dry-hopped with 4 pounds per barrel of Chinook and Galaxy.” Aggressive with hops but creamy on the palate, this beer hits with a punch of pineapple and coconut cream, with some banana notes emerging as it develops in the glass. Bracingly bitter but crushingly sweet, the finish is an exercise in both tropicality and balance. 8.3% abv. A- / $14 per four-pack of 16 oz cans [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Troegs Grand Cacao Chocolate Stout – A new offering for 2020/2021, this milky stout doesn’t exactly blast through expectations, coming across like a respectable but straightforward rendition of the chocolate-driven favorite. Notes of chocolate-covered cherries dominate, with a vanilla-scented mocha note kicking up on the finish. It’s fine. 6.5% abv. B+ / $4 per 12 oz can
