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.

Im with Chaz on this one....very nice! One of the best doppelbocks Ive had in fact. Color was reddish amber with dark orange edges. Aroma had almonds and hops. Taste was very deep and rich, nuts, caramel, typical doppelbock goodness, but it came together perfectly! Clean and easy finish despite the full taste. Well done!

I think my evaluation would be much better had I not made the mistake of having a spicy snack prior to sampling. Not that I didn't enjoy this fully. Also allergies impeded the aroma. Not a fault of the beer for sure, but hard to give it better marks as it may well deserve. All the classic traits I wish for in a doppel save one - a lusher, fuller mouth feel (residual sugars?) It just felt a tad thin, but didn't take away from my ability to enjoy it fully. Delicious.

Bottle. Amber-brown, average head. Unique aroma: barnyard, alcohol, hay, dirty animals. WOW!! Standard dopplebock thick chocolate flavors, but with a nice scotch-type finish. Absolutely wonderful.

lots of earth in the aroma, some dusty hops, a little oxidization, not so gentle age, some washed carmels

Medium head that lasted a long time. Roasted malts prevalent with slight sweet caramel and meaty - alcohol is well-masked - with a hint of hops. Good stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2008 RERATE: Some lacing this time, lovely notes of toasted pipe tobacco supports a lush malty and fruity flavor profile. +2 Overall, +1 Flavor

Original review: Nice reddish brown hue, head died quickly and no lacing. Medium-bodied. Aroma hints of roasted malt, caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla, and some minor spices. Initial bitter but malt warms up and balance out this brew, woody undertone. Detected almost no alcohol at all, well done. Oily and lively mouthfeel. A well made doppelbock, easy drinking, recommended. Thanks Aaron for this bottle!

Nice brown coloring and off-white head with pleasing, strong malty aroma. Flavor has nice malty elements and defintite bread-like qualities. Leaves a bit of bitterness on the tip of my tongue. Worthy of being a regular purchase.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2003 Poured a clear, beautiful copper brown color with an off-white head. It tasted malty and a little sweet but without the alcohol taste I was expecting. It's definitely a good american-brewed doppelbock.

Nice deep brown. Strong malty aroma with a hint of alcohol and dark chocolate. The taste expands on those and adds a hint of cinnamon and brown sugar. Surprisingly good as I didn't expect much from this.

A nice doppelbock, very sweet and chewy malts. Was a deep amber color, with a white head. Very very tasty and strong, hard to belive its 8.2%
