COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For periods of fasting without solid foods, Monastic brewers relied on the double bock; a stronger, richer beer to fulfill their basic nutritional needs. Known to them as "liquid bread", a double bock has a strong malt aroma and chewy rich body. In the spirited tradition of naming a double bock in the suffix "ator," we give you Troegenator to provide warmth and richness through the early spring months.

12 oz bottle with a BB date of 2/2017. 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.

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

Ahh a doppelbock so delicious it literally refreshes my memory of when I first discovered this style. From the bottle pours an excellent amber mohagany color, generous white head and lacing, clearly and shimmery, beautiful. Aroma of licorice caramel malt, reminiscent of sweet bourbon whiskey, and tart red fruit. Lots of hearty caramel malt in the flavor, boozy bitterness but not in an abrasive way, subtle notes of chocolate, and amaretto perhaps? Overall an excellent rendition of the style, medium bodied and easy on the palate. Well done Troeg!

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.

Light malty aroma, heavy malt flavor. Very heavy mouth feel, dark caramel, and stone fruit flavors with a little bitterness to finish it off.

Bottle share. Amber pour with a thin creamy beige head. Aroma is malty and sweet, toffee and faint spice. Taste is a blend of malty sweetness with toffee and burnt crème. A little bit of dark fruit in there as well as light bitters.

Flight shared with ebone1988 at the brewery. The pour is a brown orange color with almost no head. The aroma is sweet and malty as a dopplebock should be. There is a pretty hefty fruitiness in there that doesn’t belong. Light booze on the back end. Flavor is sweet malt water with a fruitiness on the back end. There is a strange bitter that’s hanging out on the back end that I don’t care for. The mouth feel is thin and watery. No carbonation helps this as it jumps off of the tongue and finishes with a lightly metallic malt. Damn book.
