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.

Looked light, smelled light--caramel, oranges, nothing heavy in there. Malts don't hide the alcohol. Bit rough on the swallow. Not as smooth as it should be. I had high hopes for this.

Crystal clear ruby, goregous, really. Nice richly sweet bock aroma. (How do I describe that smell...) Full-bodied and rife with flavor, with a sweet finish, but not cloying. Closer to a pale doublebock than a dark. Excellent bier!

Glad to see that some of the domestic brewers are picking up the slack. Good malt and full body. Nice dark color. Rich malt flavor. Worthwhile brew from a brewery that I am becoming more impressed with.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Roast malt aroma, although faint. Dark amber, crystal clear, with a light tan head. Flavor is malty and toasty, but rather mild. Good hop balance. Body is a little thin for style.

SMall off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Clear deep ruby colored. Very malty-caramel flavors. Hints of fruit/spices. Very smooth malt flavors, caramel, some bitterness. Aftertaste is very nice caramel thatlingers. Alcohol is noticeable but it is not overwhelming. Full but not huge body.

Dorwart (2371) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Decent head of light amber foam that lasts for a while. Slightly dry aroma with a touch of fruit. Nothing really jumps out at me though. Color is a beautiful medium amber red. Flavor is a little weak for a dopplebock but plesant with a touch of honey and molasses. Finish is a little dry and pasty but smooth with a nice alcohol warming. A decnt dopplebock with a great label.

Sweet, malty taste and aroma. You can also just smell and taste the alcohol (8.2% ABV). Overall, pretty good - but not as good as some of Troegs other brews.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Pours with a clear red body topped by a thick off-white head with decent lacing. Sweet malty aroma with caramel/toffee notes. Sweet malty flavor with caramel/toffee notes and a good hop presence, more so than in most double bocks. The finish is sweet and slightly bitter. Full bodied and slightly oily.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Ruby appearance with large carbonation at first. Aroma has some sweetness, caramel maltiness as well. Not as full bodied malt tones as I would like from a doppelbock. The body is weak and needs more full-bodied characteristics. There is a smokey note in this beer that I do enjoy.

Rich and full, malty. Just got one of these. Not too much to compare it to in the style.
