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.

Appears a light brown with an off white head. Lots and lots of sticky lacing. Smell is malty, syrupy, raisins, and toffee. The taste is of the same decent aromas mixed around in a decent take on the style. Mouthfeel is slightly fizzy and full bodied. Drinkability is decent. A nice regional doppelbock.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Clear, magnifying caramel brown in color with a fizzy, quarter inch tan head. Aroma is fairly by the book, with honeyed pecans, caramel, maple, cedar smoothness, sugary pralines and hay barrels. Kellogg’s Corn Pops and soiled sheets sneak up on the backend of the nose and are unshakeable now that they’ve been identified. Laid back flavor. Light chocolate and caramel malts futilely assert themselves but it’s as if they’ve been diluted with seltzer water – both in terms of taste and effervescence. Sugary sweetness on the roof of the mouth is akin to Rolos, but it never comes to fruition on the taste buds. Medium-bodied, sweet and rapidly diffusing on the palate. Carbonation is too active, finishing like grainy sweet bread, then caramel cola and ultimately bubblegum. Nevertheless, happy to have had a new doppelbock. Thanks for the bottle, Thaichile.

12 oz bottle-pours a creamy tan/light brown head. Hazy deep orange/amber color. Aroma-puts off a lot of aroma. Sweet, sharp___(fruity syrup smell) possibly from plums or apricots, malty. Taste follows the aroma with the malt becoming a nutty malt. Seems like oak barreled. OK carbonation. Occasional, not to my taste but, nicely done. Date stamp on bottle was partially legible, approx 10/04. Other 6 packs in this store went back to ’03.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2010 Pours dark amber with a short lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, cookie dough, bready. Flavor is cookie dough, caramel, honey, raisons and plums. Texture is thick and chewy. Does a good job of hiding the 8.2% alcohol.

Draft at Sippin by the River ’05. Another beer that I have been meaning to rate: nice example of the style, but nothing over the top. Compararble to many other dbs that are out there.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle. Deep amber color with big white head. Aromas mostly of sweet caramel malt and bread dough, the sweetness verging on dark fruit. Flavor is not as sweet as aroma implies, very bready with a surprisingly clean finish for all its alcohol and sweetness. Not my favorite style, but this is a well crafted brew.

Too sweet for my taste but that is doppelbock. Nice sweet malty taste with OK aftertaste. Not my style but would buy again.

Aroma is malty with a hint of dates and maple syrup. Dark brown appearance with a thick and lasting off white head. Very fruity flavor is grape-like with some sweet maple and a malty finish. Good beer.
