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.

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 (2374) - 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.

raymow (815) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2003
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.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Dark amber in colour with a tan head of less than 1 centimetre in height. Smells of malt, grapes, residual sweetness and a small amount of hops. Medium-bodied; Coats the mouth well with malt in each sip, as well as has a strong roasty sweetness (caramel). The malt stays in the palate for a while after the last sip. Not my favourite beer by this brewery, but it's not the worst. A decent beer and any malt lover should try this! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia and sampled it on 31-August-2003.

Ruby, red, brown in color. Brown head fades to stickey lace. Aroma is grains and black cherries. Taste is nutty with a malt finish. Nice soft carbonation.
