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.

boto (1844) - 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.

zathrus13 (1715) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2005
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.

CJfromPhilly (138) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Pours a clear reddish brown/rusty color with an off white head that settles down into a minimal covering. Fairly active carbination. Aroma is of carmel & a little vanilla. Flavor is a bready maltiness, with more hints of caramel and vanilla. Little to no hops present in the flavor, this is NOT a brew for you hopheads out there. Sweetness is cut by a hint of alcohol, but it’s well hidden for a beer listed at 8.2% abv. Medium body & texture. Has a fairly clean, slightly bitter finish. Overall, one of my favorite beers, it turned me into a Doppel lover!!

lamas (1355) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle. Bottled on: 08/19/04. Bright amber pour with smallish sandy head that leaves some lacing. Very fizzy. Chocolate, caramel and malts present in the nose along with some bananas and berries. Plenty of sweet malts and fruity flavors including banana. Some caramel present too. Pretty smooth going down. Only a slight presence of warming alcohol.

WBC (8) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2005 does not count
A little bit more smokey than I prefer my doppelbock. This beer provides an adequate abv% with a good punch to warm the palate as well as the soul on those long & cold winter evenings, however it could have been a little more balanced. The complex nose of this beer reveals a little charred walnut, smoked meat & subtle vanilla. I just wish it would have delivered on the palate a little better. Even though I expected more form this beer, I understand why those of the cloth chose to create and consume these types of beers to help them through those tumultuous 40 days. Cheers to troegs brewery for paying tribute to those wise monks before them.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2005
Sweet and fairly complex. Not as solid as Victory’s St. Victorious. Good caramel color. Alcohol isn’t notable.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2005
Deep ruby with a small white head. Sweet malt aromas of apples and yeast. Both strong and subtle overall, with fruity caramel notes that hide the tangible alcohol content. Slightly sweet smooth floral finish.

Rballs01 (279) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2005
Pours a nice amber-red. Smells of sweet malts, honey, raisin. Tastes of alcohol, molasses, little hop. Definitly a warming beer thats good for any occasion.
