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.

desurfer (1286) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Pours a deep orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and candied apples, very bready as well. Body is super malty and sweet, mostly caramel, typical doppelbock. Alcohol is not too noticeable. Finishes sweet. Not too shabby.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Bottle: Light brown with an orange tint. Headless after a minute. Sweet nutty nose. Rich, chewy malts are sweet and somewhat caramelly. This is a big Doppelbock, with firey hints of cigar tobacco and alcohol. Dry and grainy at the finish, leaving a sweet and gritty aftertaste. Slightly rough around the edges, a clean, firey beer!

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2004
12 oz. bottle. Dark copper color with minimal head. Somewhat cloudy. Tea-like aroma with plenty of malt sweetness. Flavor is malty and has nice doppelbock sweetness but not cloying sweetness. The body is very smooth and not too heavy like some doppelbocks I have had. Very nice flavor.

abbamouse (20) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2004
I tried this twice. Both times, the aroma had hints of malty breadiness mixed with a pronounced skunk odor. The pour was beautiful. The flavor was unusually salty for beer with a woody sort of aftertaste. I was disappointed, though I suppose it is possible that I got two past-prime batches.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Light browns and reds, fizzy off white head. Chocolate, spiced fruit, earth, berry, with a hint of breadiness in the aroma. Flavors matches aroma with sweet toasted bready malts winning out over the light hopping to round it out. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sweet malty finish. ABV was well hidden. A nice example.

TAR (2677) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Faded bronze. Whispy light beige foam layer subsides to a thick collar. Soft roasted malts, dessert apples, and dates in the aroma. Hint of toffee-glazed toasted malts coupled with tea leaves. Fairly airy, as well. Loose, slightly fuzzy carbonation. Grainy malt textures accompany the rounded roast character and date flavors. Becomes immensely bready and thickly malty at the core with a hint of chocolate. Tasty rummy alcohol presence with damp wool and molasses undertones. Sweet honeydew melon notes match the softness of the minerals with a vague edge of caramelized hazelnuts and pale malt. Retains its soft roundedness into the finish with a crescendo of plums, dates, candied white currants, soft noble hops, and sugared malt hulls. Grainy toasted malts reside on the tongue long after the swallow. Nice.

I wish i could smell this, but my nose is stuffed up. So, I am gonna have to take everyone elses word on that part of the rating. Thick amber color. Sweet, rich, nice and malty, some light hops. A very good brew. All that I have had from troegs so far is quite good.

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2004
Bottled, thanks marbles! Copper colour. Bready malt aroma. Sweet, rich and full bodied, all emphasize is on the malt. The hop rate seems fairly low, and there is some butterscotch. A really good doppelbock!

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Aroma is sweet - molasses, brown sugar, candi sugar - nice and malty. Flavor is huge. Malt bomb baby yeeeaahh. Tingly hops, sweet maple syrup/molasses, a little lemon and a very tingly alcohol finish. Dark fruits abound. Reminds me a bit of kulmbaacher eisbock.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 This did not taste like a doppelbock in the sense of Ayinger celebrator. It had actually non of the same characteristics. This is was light brown with light head. It was ok but not what i would expect from a doppelbock. 6/3/6/3/13.

Re-rate: almost 3 years later I will stick by my first rating even if its a bit under-descriptive. Aroma has lagered fruitiness, not a good thing, and a mix of wet bark and cardboard. Taste is thin and badly lagered because there is a bad residual sweetness left over. Too thin and awkwardly sweet. Not a good doppelbock and one I will probably never revisit again (3 years and nothing has changed). As I drink this the unbalanced sweetness gets more and annoying. Ugh, sweet and vegetable-like. 6/3/6/3/12
