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.

Had from can camping so no idea of appearance other than it is a orange/gold color. Aroma is very typical double bock - nice malt and caramel notes. Taste follows the aroma, nice malty, caramel notes.

A darker more substantial beer. This could definitely be drunk as a food replacement but it's not so heavy that it's not enjoyable. It actually goes down smoother then you would expect for a darker beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA reviewed on 2-10-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep mahogany color with an off color white head that fades rather quickly. A bit of lacing is present, but not all that much. Aroma – Sweet caramel aroma is big and bold. There is some roasted barley and some breadiness which come in more heavily toward the middle and end of the aroma and is mixed with a bit of dried fruit; mostly cherry but a bit of prune as well. Taste – A thick malt flavor of bread and roasted barley initially start the taste. A sweeter caramel and brown sugar come into the picture and sweeten the taste significantly. The sweetness is then enhanced even further with dark fruit flavors with the slightest bit of alcohol working its way in, creating a nice finish to the taste. Mouthfeel – Following the taste, the mouthfeel is thick from the malt. It has a body that coats the tongue with creaminess. The carbonation is perfect for its strength and body, enough to tingle the taste buds, but low enough to enhance the bodies smoothness on the tongue. Very nice. Overall – Big malt and sugary sweet smoothness – the best way to describe this brew. It’s easy to drink even with its potent strength.

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.
