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.

Troegs accomplishes the amazing feat of brewing quintessential examples of every style they try. This doppel defines craftmanship. Excellent balance of strong malt and hop flavors with a slight smoke taste. Not my fave style or fave brew from Troegs, but really, really well done. Like all Troegs, it's not pasteurized so the clean, fresh, bready flavors really shine through.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 Deep amber color, with hardly any head. The aroma was its strong suite - caramel malts dominated. Caught a hint of the yeast strains, but they seemed to disappear early. Body was a bit thin for this style, but it may be a tad unfair comparing it to what the Germans have been doing for centuries. Decent kick from the high abv. Rerated on 11/02/07. Much better than my original impression. Dark amber appearance with a medium size head that left good lacing. Toffeeish, caramel malt aroma. Dark bread pairs up with sweet malts in the taste; hops are understated. The fuller bodied mouthfeel is a big difference. Finishes on a spicy note.

obxdude10 (2052) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2003
Decent doppelbock, deep ruby & brownish color, very little head at all, lots of sweet maltiness in the nose with a hint of some different spices, seemed like something was missing from the flavors, just didn't seem as good as some of the other doppels I've had, very rich aftertaste, just glad I didn't buy an entire case of this like I had thought about

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 (11583) - 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.
