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.

Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Reddish amber pour with a thin offwhite head. Mild aroma of malt and dark fruits. Fortunately the flavor is more powerfull and assertive, there’s rich malt with dark fruit, the finish is bitter and roasty. The body is medium with a creamy texture and the carbonation is moderate.

Not much in the aroma dept. had a woody smell to it. Nice rich head that faded decently and laced well. A clear dark amber had a full mouth to it. It was good but thought it needed a little more to it. A good drinker I liked it just thought it was missing something.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Pours a brilliantly clear ruby red color when held up to the light, otherwise it is a full amber color. The head is frothy, about a finger thick and is a tan color. The aroma is rich with notes of cherries, carmalized malt, toasted bread, and fresh cooked biscuits. The cherry note is quite interesting, and though not strong adds a sort of fruity back drop to the aroma. Nice... this beer is thick and creamy from the beginning, as I take my first sip it just coats my mouth. There is a nice sweet full maltiness here that is characteristic of a doppelbock. The flavors that I can pick up remind me of caramel coated biscuits, honey, vanilla (though I think this is more a product of the creamy mouthfeel), and a hint of fruit notes; cherry and orange perhaps. There is a light bitterness in the finish that just barely tries to balance the rich maltiness that dominates this brew. This is a very good Doppelbock, and I am quite enjoying it. A thank you goes out to zathrus13 for the opportunity to try this tasty beer.

Thanks to Zathrus13 for the bottle. Pours a red-orange brown. Small white head, somewhat foamy. Subtle malt aromatics, marred by medicinal alcohol notes. Sweet toasty and caramel malt flavors. Very toffee-like finish.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2009 One of the best beers according to my mouth. beware of the troegenator. I don’t like the new design.

boto (1863) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Draught: This one poured a clear, dark reddish/coppery color. Mine had almost no head to speak of. There was some sweet caramel malt to the nose. The aroma also contained some spicy floral notes. This one has a nice, sweet caramel malt taste, with some hints of fruits. A hint of bitterness and some spicyness in the aftertaste. Very Nice!

Faint sweet aroma. Cream colored head dissapated quicky. Heavy body. Not bad, alcohol is well hidden.

Red/copper color, with a tan head. Aromas are sweet malt, caramel, and maybe some chocolate. Flavor is fruit, brown sugar, and sweet malt. Body is on the heavy side.
