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.

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.

Somewhat of a strong malt aroma. Light brown to copper in color. Very clear in appearance,with moderate carbonation and a slight head. Very easy going down, no bitterness or aftertaste. A very smooth overall mouthfeel. I consider this a good tasting beer with no harsh aftertaste. Will buy again.

There might be a more fitting beverage to celebrate the Steelers Superbowl win, but I guess this is close enough. Bottle thanks to Kramer17801. Smell is very malty and sweet. Like a thick, thick caramel that sticks to the nostrils. Flavor is slightly burnt malt taste and very sweet again. I do not detect much floral or fruity notes at all, but its all about sweet dark hearty malt. This is a fine beer for such a lovely snowy night.

Troegenator Double Bock is brewed with Pilsner, Munich, and Chocolate malts, then hopped with both Hallertau and Saaz hop varieties. It is then largered, and comes in at a warming 8.2% abv, making it a stylistically flawless example of a classic German beer style. This beer is rich, smooth, flavorful, and warming, everything a good double bock should be. Troegenator pours to a beautiful, bright, deep bronze color with a slight white head that fades, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with deep aromas of toasty/nutty sweet malt, slight grassy hop aroma, and some peppery alcohol. The palate is as impressive as the nose, with a sea of deep sweet malty, toasty, and nutty flavors that are just so smooth, round, and clean on the palate. Troegenator finishes with more deep malty character up front, and is balanced out to complete perfection, with just the right amount of grassy/spicy hop bitterness to give this beer sublime balance.

Draft Pours a copper red with a light brown head. Aroma was malty of carmel and a little sweetness. Taste was well balanced. Good mix of malts and hops. Nice carbonation and a good light bitter finish. This is another great beer from the brothers.

A dark amber pour with a hint of red. Head was small, light brown in color and faded quickly. Aroma was sweet caramel and malty. Flavor was more malty than the nose with a touch of sweetness and a small bitter bite at the end. Excellent beer, this will be a stocked beer in my collection.
