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.

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

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2003
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.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2003
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!

VAYankee (332) - Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2003
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.

TheBeerGod (5309) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2003
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.

slimjim (106) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2003
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%

This is a well balanced brew.Malty and little alcohol taste make this a good beer.A definite buy again.

hopscotch (9364) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
A lovely crystal clear copper brew. Medium-sized khaki-colored, fizzy head. Quickly and fully diminishing. Rich, buttery, malty nose with huge notes of spruce and butterscotch. The flavor is also malty and rich. Light molasses, caramel and English toffee up front. Excellently balanced with a lightly pungent and moderately bitter hop presence on the backside. Full-bodied with a very oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Long, bitter and dry finish. Great brew! Worth Pursuing!

Troegs is an excellent brewery. Troegenator is malty and bready in flavor with a knock out punch. Could easily pass for a German doppelbock.
