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.

Hooray, domestic dopplebock. Deep caramel brown color. Nose is slight, not as strong as expected, a bit of maltiness. Flavor is chewy, plenty of caramel, but not as malty as expected. Hops are a mite harsh, noticeable, but the balance seems off. Body is reasonably creamy, but nothing phenomenal. It's the first release of this, so maybe it'll get refined in the future. Good, but tastes as if it needs a bit more polishing before it's actually ready.

Yeasty aroma, bitter flavor; overall I found this beer to have a tough yeasty (alcohol) taste.

Aroma is rather subtle for the odd flavor. Flavor is someone odd and almost wood-like but rich and robust. Aftertaste is a little dissappointing; almost seems like it leaves a bitter film embedded on the back of your tongue.

This was a nice surprise from Troegs. Bronze color, malty nose and little spice. Well done.

interesting name, tough beer to find. Big, malty and deceivingly smooth. I definitely will be looking forward to my next Troegenaor!

Nice and smooth and very complex and rich in taste. I must agree that it does warm you to a nice sweet glow. Stronger than I was the Troegenator

On vacation last week in Bloomsburg, PA I tried this beer....extremely tasty, watch out for the power it packs though...rough time standing up after a few

Cool name, although not very impressive for a doppelbock. Lacked a substantial strong malt background. Don’t get me wrong it’s decent, but its nothing to rave about.
