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.

Aurelius (5070) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Lousy label, glowing ruby orange beer, big head. Tart, boozy raisiny aroma. Sweet, woody, medium raisin fruitiness, immediately identifiable as a bock. Slightly metallic, finishes off with a bitter, dark dried fruitiness reminiscent of dates, prunes, etc. This is becoming one of my least favorite styles, as I age, but this is a decent example. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours vibrant brownish red with quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma of gingerbread cookies, fruity chocolate, and berries (or sangria, with a note of alcohol). Flavor like fruitcake or rum cake: somewhat fruity but mostly basic sugars, malts and alcohol. In both nose and flavors, alcohol overpowers and masks too much. Good and pretty complex, but I’m ruined by Ayinger Celebrator - a fruity doppelbock seems strange to me.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Dark brown in color, thick head that goes away quick. Taste is sweet and bitter with alcohol at first. That subsides and leaves way with a nice rich dopple bock. Slightly under rated in my opinion. Easy drinking and refreshing, but its no aventinus. Nice one though!

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle. At the Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville, PGH. Pours dark amber with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is raisins, caramel, molasses, and a hint of lemon. Tastes of malt, caramel, and sour dough. Not bad, but I’d prefer a bigger body and a little bit of bitterness.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 8, 2006
12-oz. bottle from artusory. Pours deep mahagony with a small light tan frothy head that mostly dissipates. Aroma is nutty and medium roasted caramel malts (meal, cereal) with hay and straw notes. Mild bitterness and acidity, medium sweet caramel malt, finish is dry and spicy, faint alcohol notes. Medium bodied and creamy palate that ends dry and spicy.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Sampled at Mondial 2006. Teh body was a dark copper with a medium yellowish colored head. The sweet aroma had honey and some old leather tofee. The taste is solid with toffee and caramel. There was also iced tea and apple core. The body was light with low carbonation

wxman (1744) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Pours a bright amber with a decent off white head that rings the glass. Aroma is wet bread and yeast with sweet malt. Flavor is buttery sweet roasted malt, maple syrup and caramel along with a flowery hoppiness. Very tasty; 8.2% ABV nearly goes unnoticed. Good stuff!

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Ok, this is no Ayinger, but it was enjoyable. Perhaps a bit too sweet and lacking in thickness (mouthfeel), this one still had a nice flavor. Was bready malty and the alcohol was hard to pick up at 8%. In between the pale and dark doppelbocks out there. Fairly priced for the quality.

stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Amber and smooth. A very good malty beer with some oaty hints. The best Troegs has to offer.
