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.

Pours a rich reddish chestnut brown with a decent, finely-bubbled yellow-white head that fades rapidly to a rim and partial coating. Aroma is sweet chalky malts - nuts, bread, caramel. Taste follows suit with toffee, dark fruits, a well-hidden warming alcohol and a touch of cherry. I appreciate a good doppelbock - and this is a very good one. Yum.

matty (262) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep caramel/ruby red color with a tan head. Not getting an aroma other than a heavy scent of malt. Full bodied, taste leans heavy on the malt. Sweet finish. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOD 8/13/14. Beautiful clear dark amber pour that has a heavy dose of dark ruby making it almost red. Normal head, lacing and slightly below normal retention. Light nose of caramel malt with bread undertones coupled with a light alcohol note. As it warms, dark fruit notes (fig, raisin, plum) are noted. Full bodied with a rich creamy texture. Normal carbonation with a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is well balanced and complex. It begins with a bready malt that flows into the dark fruit notes. In the middle, caramel sweetness comes forward then yields to a mild hop bitterness. The finish is where the alcohol becomes a bit unhidden as the other flavors fade.

Poured from a 330ml bottle, aroma is rich malt with lots of dark fruit, raisins and plums, taste is lucious silk malt flavor. Raisins and plums and crusty bread flavor. Silky mouth feel, medium body medium carbonation. Delicious beer right up there with ayinger captivator.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Can: Rich chestnut & ruby tinted body with good clarity; largely porous, gray-beige head is settled to a thin collar in just moments. CaraMunich malt aroma with a light staleness to it. Toasted bread, faint toffee, slight anise, & some deeper notes of plums & figs. Large toasted bread flavor, a hint of spiciness that almost seems like rye. Caramel, sweet malt, stale toffee, light plum, & a slightly medicinal, herbal finish. Only a small kiss of earthy hops. Decent.
