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.

Troeganator is a special brew. It pours a beautiful dark amber color with a nice small head. I don't detect much by way of scent, which is odd, but this beer is smooth from start to finish. Really, really clean.

Pours a crystal clear dark ruby color with minimal head. Smells like raisins, caramel and brown sugar. Tastes follows the nose but is a little less sweet than I expected from the aroma. The finish is dry and slightly bitter Medium bodied with low carbonation.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Leary’s, Newburyport, MA. Aroma is bready malt with caramel, red wine. Appearance is clear red with nice sparkle, small 1/2 finger-width head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is rich sweet malts with caramel, vanilla. Palate is full bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and malty finish with just a splash of bitterness and mild warmth in the esophagus and stomach.

Found 5 his bottle in the back of my fridge from a spring time trip south. Cloudy brown pour. Bready malty notes with a touch of brown sugar and some florality as well. Somewhat sweet tasting as warming to the palate but lingering finish. Very good beer.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a beautiful brown clear color with a little bit carbonation. Has a breasy, almost rye aroma. Tastes a bit like bourbon, dry, an okay brew.

TorbenJensen (1413) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2015
Potent double bock with lovely aroma of hard roasted malt, dark bread and a little coffee. The taste varies over dark chocolate, very dark rye bread (pumpernickel), a little hard coffee and roasted malt with a very small tone of smoked malt. The sweetness is relatively high and syrupy, and it’s actually a little sorry for the acts most like a dobbelbock which has been added a portion syrup, rather than a double bock beer with natural malt sweetness. The taste also contains some dried fruits and a bit nuts. Unfortunately, its fruit taste a tart shade of some fruit acid, and it bears it from being completely comparable with the best German double bocks. It has otherwise many fine bars and a soft carbonation that makes it rich in malt flavor. Hop bitterness is also balanced fine, but its a little too high fruit acid (which can resemble cherry), which I do not think belongs in a good double bock. The finish is dry and as such it is a tasty and vinous beer, however, is just a little too sweet and slightly tart.
