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.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 15, 2003
deep red brown color, medium short lived head, rich aroma of malt , caramel, touch of sweet spices. smooth malty base with a caramel component in the taste. nice hop presence balances outr the rich malt and makes this very drinkable for a strong beer. this holds up wellin comparison with most german doppelbocks except andechs and unionsbrau.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2003
Clear garnet with minimal tan head. Aroma is caramel, cola, some spiciness. Taste is cola/caramel and earthy bitter, with some spiciness. Decent body, and the alcohol is well masked. Improves considerably as it warms.

kalisto9 (73) - Crafton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2003
A terrific doublebock if ever there was one. Little head, nice, full-bodied flavor, and an 8.2% ABV. I like high octane brews, but the flavor in this one truly wins out over the buzz. One of my all time faves.

phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2003
Nice cloudy light brown appearance. Very light aroma. Smooth going down. Mild woody taste. Winey sweet/sour aftertaste, which I'm not fond of. Not my style.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2003
Pours a dark, clear, reddish brown color with a thin head that rapidly dissipates. It has a malty and slightly fruity aroma with a touch of caramel in it. Medium body with low carbonation, the flavor is malty sweet with a hint of ginger. The alcohol is well hidden. A little thin for a doppelbock, but the flavor is great. This is one of the better American brewed doppelbocks.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2003
Clear caramel color with minimal head and a flowery, yet malty aroma. A little thin in body considering the style and abv. Some roasty and nutty qualities, nice and dry, mild hop character. Not bad, but not great.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2003
this beer had the distinct disadvanage to being drunk in between several stouts, but it managed to hold it's own. I liked the flavor, but in the end, ended up going back to my stouts...

I did a blind taste test with Troegs and Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock (generally acknowledged to be the best Doublebock). The Troegenator won. It doesn't have the deep dark appearance of the Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock but it tastes better. So much of beer is psychological; the only way to compare beers is to do blind taste tests. Troegs makes some great beers; they don't microfilter or pasturize. Their beers are the best except for their Lager (too bland but I guess that goes with the style) and their pilsner (I like Pislner Urquell a lot more).

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Medium amber/red color with slight white head. Very malty and relatively smooth. Full bodied- with lots of sweetness, and the alcohol gave it a nice kick yet it is hard to detect in the taste.
