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.

Not my favorite style but the fact that I find this a drinkable beer must mean something good. Strong flavors, sweet caramel, good hit of hops, alcohol. Holds up to strong foods, went well with a spicy Chili.

A little disappointing. Pretty average doppelbock. Dark brown in color. Slight alcohol burn. Caramel tones, decent roasted malt, but missing something.

Good balance between malt and hops, but could use some work in the alcohol department. The amount of alcohol was very apparent in the flavor. Overall though for an american Doppelbock it's pretty good.

This is one great Doppelbock. Very malty in taste and amber in color, this is one of the best out there.

Good product! So hard to find a good Doublebock. Bit of alcohol, and great hop balance. I like that caramel flavors from the munich malt. Good job Troegs.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 Great looking clear rust colored body, though head is lacking. Smoky caramel malt exhibiting some considerable complexity framed nicely by alcohol and spicy hops. Good nose of Hallertauer, booze and malt in equal proportion. My first sample of this made me think this was a thin, boring offering. I'm glad I gave it another shot.

Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Grapefruit,hop oil, spicy aroma. Decent maltiness in nose. Copper red clear with lacing, off-white foamy head. Low carb, silky heavy watery body. Sweet malts and good kick of hops. Light bitterness and sweet mild after. Bit of alcohol and orange. Watery. Was OK but not as malty as German doppels.

Strong malt flavor, very rich. A very good doppelbock from a great Pennsylvania microbrewery.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2003
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.
