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.

The troegenator just dominated me. Completely overwhelming strength in my opinion, but this rating is rather biased because mine was slighlty warm. Anyways, besides the fact it was tough to take down, it had not lived up to the full-bodied description. This was more a rush of alcohol with little consistency or balance. Perhaps a bad one from the batch ... or maybe I just have problems.

Clear copper color with a very minimal off white head. Sweet malt aroma with hints of caramel. Flavor is mostly malt with a touch of toffee. Kind of thin and watery but very drinkable.

For finally trying out one of the Troegs beers, I’m glad it was the Troegenator. This mean mean beer made me happy about doppelbocks again. I love em and love thjis

10.16.04 2003 12oz bottle. Fiery red pour with minimal head. Aromas of caramel, dried cherries, tea with milk, mums. The mouthfeel is thinner for a doppel, no effervescence, kind of flat with only the slightest tingle on the lip. The flavor is more dried cherry with milk chocolate, sunflower seeds, some caramel, coconut, dried apricot...damn, it’s like a trail mix. The alcohol never gets involved with the beer, only with the drinker afterward. It’s good.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2004
bottle 12 oz. Semi clear copper w small tan head that fell quick. Aroma is quite malty w alcohol and min hops. Flavor is rather sweet, creamy lt/med roasted malt that has a somewhat caramel candy flavor, also a bit like malted milk balls without the chocolate. Light hop flavor but hop bitterness is pronounced and a redeeming factor. Alcohol is noticible but masked fairly well. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Pours a deep orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and candied apples, very bready as well. Body is super malty and sweet, mostly caramel, typical doppelbock. Alcohol is not too noticeable. Finishes sweet. Not too shabby.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Bottle: Light brown with an orange tint. Headless after a minute. Sweet nutty nose. Rich, chewy malts are sweet and somewhat caramelly. This is a big Doppelbock, with firey hints of cigar tobacco and alcohol. Dry and grainy at the finish, leaving a sweet and gritty aftertaste. Slightly rough around the edges, a clean, firey beer!

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2004
12 oz. bottle. Dark copper color with minimal head. Somewhat cloudy. Tea-like aroma with plenty of malt sweetness. Flavor is malty and has nice doppelbock sweetness but not cloying sweetness. The body is very smooth and not too heavy like some doppelbocks I have had. Very nice flavor.

abbamouse (20) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2004
I tried this twice. Both times, the aroma had hints of malty breadiness mixed with a pronounced skunk odor. The pour was beautiful. The flavor was unusually salty for beer with a woody sort of aftertaste. I was disappointed, though I suppose it is possible that I got two past-prime batches.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Light browns and reds, fizzy off white head. Chocolate, spiced fruit, earth, berry, with a hint of breadiness in the aroma. Flavors matches aroma with sweet toasted bready malts winning out over the light hopping to round it out. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sweet malty finish. ABV was well hidden. A nice example.
