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.

Nice tart aroma, almost cherry. Flavor is hoppy with a slightly bitter aftertaste. It's not quite as viscous as I would have expected, but the flavor makes up for it.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2003 The smell of this beer is almost a meal in and of itself. Raisin, banana, bread malty nose. Reddish brown with small, but lasting tan head. Excellently rich bready malt flavor balanced with slight hop bite. Out of this world!

Amber body with yellow and orange hues with a moderately thick, eggnog-colored head. Smells of watery hops and has a doughy, bread-like quality as well. Taste was very surprising. It builds in complexity, starting very watery/mild, then transforms into a very strong malt character with grapes, raisins, brown sugar, and perhaps a pat of butterscotch. Flavor ends bitter, with green coffee, grape and apricot flavored hops. Aftertaste is ditto, fading to a nice coffee bitter finish. This is a very good, multifaceted drink that I wasn’t expecting. Kudos to Troegs. Sampled from a 12oz bottle purchased at Total Wine and Beverage in McLean, VA.

Its a full body beer. Really liked it. Nice dark color. A malty bock with nice head retention.

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.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2003
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.

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.
