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.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2004
12 oz bottle. Clear medium amber, smallish lasting creamy head. Malty, slightly banana-infused nose; very smooth, light, earthy...rather weak and light for a doppel; bitter, slightly sour finish. Just ok.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2004
eep red color, lightly carbonated, syrupy full mouth coating body. good malt taste, complementing yet submissive hop bitterness. Not one to turn down.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Plums, raisins, brown sugar in the aroma. Deep brown-red body. Medium-heavily sweet flavor becomes a lightly bitter, moderately sweet finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy/oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: sweet and creamy, just lacks in depth (a common problem for me, it would seem).

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2004
Tan head, caramel brown, semi-hazy appearance. Very strong caramel aroma. Malty and sweet in flavor and aroma, but not as sweet in flavor as I would like. Slight bitterness at the tail end. Doesn't have tha alcohol burn (maybe I am crazy but I actually like a little burn).

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2004
Amber/brown clear body with a large beige sudsy head that has good duration and a fair lace. Malty caramel aroma with a light hint of hop and alcohol. Some good toasty notes are in there. Starts with a dominant caramel malty sweetness and mild fruitiness. Has a bit of hop balance but definitely sweeeet. Alcohol is masked well. Medium body, juicy mouthfeel finishes lighty bitter. Enjoyable brew, enjoyable price.

jasonp (1573) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2005 Clear mahogany with a thick off-white head. Bready caramel aroma with a hint of alcohol. Very malty and sweet but not overly sweet. Taste has notes of cherry, dark fruit, BIG caramel, honey, molasses and toasty malts. The alcohol content is pretty well hidden. Not as dark and roasty as other doppelbocks such as Celebrator. Mouthfeel is very full, round and creamy with medium carbonation. Solid stuff.

FridgRaider (108) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Dark amber color, thick whitish-tan head. Malty cocoa nose. Kinda heavy mouth feel. This is an alright Doublebock.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Dark amber, bordering on brown. Ecru heavy dense head. Malt and sourdough aroma. Lightly smoked grain flavors. Some scotch qualities. Quite dry and slightly acetic. Mid to heavy feel. For the content, the alcohol is hard to find. Not a lot of depth. Finish is somewhat nutty and dry.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - MAR 11, 2004
An amberish-honey colored beer with a tan head of densely packed bubbles. Aroma is a bit funky and redonlent of molasses. Medium rich mouthfeel, smooth and sweet. Could use a bit more hops to finish it off, but a tasty bock nevertheless.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Mildly sweet caramel aroma. Chestnut auburn in color with little head and no lacing. Very yeasty/bread flavor and lacks the sweetness one would expect. Single dimensionsal. I was expecting the body to firm as it warmed, but I was disappointed with that. Average dopplebock.
