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.

Homer321 (1600) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from who knows where. Poured into a snifter. Medium off white to brown head. Dark red in color. Nose is a lot of toffee with some melanoidin, maillard, burnt sugar aromas going on. Taste is a complex brown sugar, white sugar, malty, toffee, bready, crusty explosion. The malt kind of falls flat mid palate and finished very clean. Normally I would think this is great, but I feel like I am only getting half a sips-worth. Some cherry and fruity esters from malt or yeast come through as it warms. Not much alcohol warming, but definitely there. Not hot, not cloying. Very well done.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Appearance: A pretty clearly, a bit dark amber color. Nice head that goes away pretty fast and leaves no lacing behind. Smell: Sweet. Reddy. Malty. Nothing unexpected. There’s also maybe a slight spicy hop character to it, but it’s certainly a malty, sweet beer just from the aroma alone. Taste/feel: Tasting a lot like the smell. Solid, but not with a lot of depth, or blowing me away. 8%? Who would ever guess that? There’s no booze in the taste, and there’s no warmth at all. The feel is very nice on this -- a great nearly full-bodied mouthfeel and medium-ish carbonation. Again, just a lot of sweet malty "red" flavors in this beer. This is an ignorant-as-all-hell review because I’m not sure I’ve had a Doppelbock before. From what I know about them, this is what I’d expected. I didn’t think I’d love them, and I don’t love this beer. However, the feel on this beer is great, and it’s very drinkable at 8%. I’m just not high on the style, simply because I find it -- or at least this beer -- relatively interesting. I reiterate AGAIN, it’s still enjoyable, and very well crafted, without a doubt. A great choice for people who love sweet, malty brews.

Wow! An in-your-face tsunami of flavor. Rich malts balanced with hops and mild sweetness. A mighty style that has too much alcohol and sweetness for me, but a quality beer nonetheless.
