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.

zach8270 (3794) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a bright amber color with a big slightly off-white head. Smokey aroma that enveloped a slightly hidden sweet. When I tasted it, I did not know what the ABV was, and I’m surprised to see it’s 8.2% for the way it tasted. A nice sweet malt beginning with a biscuity followup and a smooth, smokey finish. Goes down smooth and hides the alcohol well.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2004
Orange-amber clear body, thin off-white head. Aroma of cedar wood smokiness, wet soil, sand, peat malt. No alcohol is noticeable to me, but were there some, it’d feel pretty whiskey-ish. Palate is lightly tart, very earthy with more smoke and peat malt stuff going on, but not much flavor developments. Sand undertones, mild bitterness. A rather quaffable example without much complexity and a airy medium body.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2010 Fruity Munich malts offer cherry angles to their mild caramel apport...Carbonation is loose, making the mouthfeel juicy; the head of foam quickly dissipates to an ailing ring atop the regal mahogany...Alcohol is not apparent in the flavor profile, which is appreciated, but this has mouthfeel issues to be taken care of to become as drinkable and refined as the best authentic examples of the style...

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2004
A pretty good doppel by an American micro. Sweetish in both taste and aroma with some alcohol on the nose. Not a tremendously heavy body, but almost there. Good deep color.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2004
This beer pours a medium to dark amber color with small but lasting head. Very sweet, but mostly what would be expected with a desert beer. The body is not quite as thick as would be desired.

haddon90 (1561) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Cloudy deep amber color with a lasting head. Malty aroma. A hint of caramel as well. Smooth taste. Very impressive. Some hops linger, earthy and light at the same time. A definite must try. Good finish as well. Bought this 12 oz bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, VA.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2004
12 oz bottle. Clear medium amber, smallish lasting creamy head. Malty, slightly banana-infused nose; very smooth, light, earthy...rather weak and light for a doppel; bitter, slightly sour finish. Just ok.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2004
eep red color, lightly carbonated, syrupy full mouth coating body. good malt taste, complementing yet submissive hop bitterness. Not one to turn down.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Plums, raisins, brown sugar in the aroma. Deep brown-red body. Medium-heavily sweet flavor becomes a lightly bitter, moderately sweet finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy/oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: sweet and creamy, just lacks in depth (a common problem for me, it would seem).

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2004
Tan head, caramel brown, semi-hazy appearance. Very strong caramel aroma. Malty and sweet in flavor and aroma, but not as sweet in flavor as I would like. Slight bitterness at the tail end. Doesn't have tha alcohol burn (maybe I am crazy but I actually like a little burn).
