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.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Light ruby color with a small head. Sweet doughy aroma, starts sweet and ends dry. Full bodied with a light sticky mouthfeel. I am shocked that this is 8.2%.

Had this at a beer club meeting with many other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.

Oddy light in color for a doppelbock. Aroma of raisin, chocolate and cinnamon. Palate is smooth and a bit watery. The body is very thin especially for the style.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Medium amber color. Lots of caramel and quite heavy on the malt. A little coffee taste was lingering in there somewhere. Pretty good. Gives me a nice impression of Troegs.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2003
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.

Nice tart aroma, almost cherry. Flavor is hoppy with a slightly bitter aftertaste. It's not quite as viscous as I would have expected, but the flavor makes up for it.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2003 The smell of this beer is almost a meal in and of itself. Raisin, banana, bread malty nose. Reddish brown with small, but lasting tan head. Excellently rich bready malt flavor balanced with slight hop bite. Out of this world!

Amber body with yellow and orange hues with a moderately thick, eggnog-colored head. Smells of watery hops and has a doughy, bread-like quality as well. Taste was very surprising. It builds in complexity, starting very watery/mild, then transforms into a very strong malt character with grapes, raisins, brown sugar, and perhaps a pat of butterscotch. Flavor ends bitter, with green coffee, grape and apricot flavored hops. Aftertaste is ditto, fading to a nice coffee bitter finish. This is a very good, multifaceted drink that I wasn’t expecting. Kudos to Troegs. Sampled from a 12oz bottle purchased at Total Wine and Beverage in McLean, VA.
