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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Pours with a clear red body topped by a thick off-white head with decent lacing. Sweet malty aroma with caramel/toffee notes. Sweet malty flavor with caramel/toffee notes and a good hop presence, more so than in most double bocks. The finish is sweet and slightly bitter. Full bodied and slightly oily.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Ruby appearance with large carbonation at first. Aroma has some sweetness, caramel maltiness as well. Not as full bodied malt tones as I would like from a doppelbock. The body is weak and needs more full-bodied characteristics. There is a smokey note in this beer that I do enjoy.

Rich and full, malty. Just got one of these. Not too much to compare it to in the style.

jgb9348 (4961) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Dark amber in colour with a tan head of less than 1 centimetre in height. Smells of malt, grapes, residual sweetness and a small amount of hops. Medium-bodied; Coats the mouth well with malt in each sip, as well as has a strong roasty sweetness (caramel). The malt stays in the palate for a while after the last sip. Not my favourite beer by this brewery, but it's not the worst. A decent beer and any malt lover should try this! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia and sampled it on 31-August-2003.

Ruby, red, brown in color. Brown head fades to stickey lace. Aroma is grains and black cherries. Taste is nutty with a malt finish. Nice soft carbonation.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2003
pretty decent doppelbock. Light brown color with nutty malt aroma. Flavor is a bit sweet, slightly yeasty, but still damn good. One of the better doppelbocks that I've had.

Great bottle and name. Good beer too. Very much like Autumnal fire in its maltiness. I liked it.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Deep reddish brown, diminishing tan head. Scent of malt, some hops. Flavor includes much malt, dried fruit, wood, and an almost peaty note. Full-bodied.
