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.

PorterPounder (7116) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2006
Cork & Bottle Liquors, Baton Rouge, La. - 12 oz bottle. Light copper appearance, little to no head. Thin for a doppelbock. Sweet, molasses like aroma, some brown sugar and a trace of alcohol in the nose as well. Flavor is sweet, some cherries, some cotton candy. Turns slightly cloying as it warms though. Decently thick mouthfeel. Holds the 8.5% ABV well.

This beer poured much darker than the photo indicates. This 12oz bottle poured with a thick malty head. The mouthfeel was interesting, lighter than your usual doppelbock. Felt almost like a lager in that department. Flavor was of caramelish malts, almost like the complexity of a belgian. Finish was nice and of medium length.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Mmmhmm, very good beer. Sweet flavor, almost reminded me of apple juice. Malty and delish, give this one a try. Gotta get out to Harrisburg to visit this place. - Original review 4/7/2006 Update 9/21/2014. Eight years later and I have grown very, very fond of this beer. An incredible malt flavor profile, just balanced enough not to muck up your mouth. One of the first beers I buy when I am bringing cases home from PA, and as of this week I can buy it in NC.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep copper with a slowly dissipating off white head. Carbonation is light. Aroma is sweet, with dark malt and light chocolate. Taste is very malty up front with a slight bitterness, which changes to toffee, butter, diacetyl, with a smooth firm finish.

Pours like coca cola. Tastes very smooth, very delicious malty brew. I enjoyed it very much. Carbonated palate, had a great texture going down. Definetely could taste the alcohol in this one. Very good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 2006 Bottle. Pretty good double bock. Rich, malty taste. Little head. Decent aroma with a palate that is not over powering.

I sampled a 12-ounce bottle. Bright, deep copper in color, and topped with a generous, creamy tan head, this beer sits beautifully in a tulip pint glass and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is all malt, saccharine and with a trace of alcohol. The bold, smooth and rich body begins with a deep and sugary palate entry that quickly builds to hazelnut, caramel and toffee flavors contributed by the double malt framework. Hop balance isn’t apparent until the finish, which is appropriately drying and ever-so-slightly spicy. Not surprisingly, owing the high ABV, there’s also a bit of alcohol warming in the finish that grows more apparent as the glass approaches room temperature.

On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a darker red amber with an average tan lacing head. Aroma was sweet and malty, caramel and a little nutty. Flavor was a nice sweet and malty smoothness. Alchol was non-detect.
