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.

TAR (2435) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Faded bronze. Whispy light beige foam layer subsides to a thick collar. Soft roasted malts, dessert apples, and dates in the aroma. Hint of toffee-glazed toasted malts coupled with tea leaves. Fairly airy, as well. Loose, slightly fuzzy carbonation. Grainy malt textures accompany the rounded roast character and date flavors. Becomes immensely bready and thickly malty at the core with a hint of chocolate. Tasty rummy alcohol presence with damp wool and molasses undertones. Sweet honeydew melon notes match the softness of the minerals with a vague edge of caramelized hazelnuts and pale malt. Retains its soft roundedness into the finish with a crescendo of plums, dates, candied white currants, soft noble hops, and sugared malt hulls. Grainy toasted malts reside on the tongue long after the swallow. Nice.

I wish i could smell this, but my nose is stuffed up. So, I am gonna have to take everyone elses word on that part of the rating. Thick amber color. Sweet, rich, nice and malty, some light hops. A very good brew. All that I have had from troegs so far is quite good.

Bottled, thanks marbles! Copper colour. Bready malt aroma. Sweet, rich and full bodied, all emphasize is on the malt. The hop rate seems fairly low, and there is some butterscotch. A really good doppelbock!

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Aroma is sweet - molasses, brown sugar, candi sugar - nice and malty. Flavor is huge. Malt bomb baby yeeeaahh. Tingly hops, sweet maple syrup/molasses, a little lemon and a very tingly alcohol finish. Dark fruits abound. Reminds me a bit of kulmbaacher eisbock.

beastiefan2k (2358) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 This did not taste like a doppelbock in the sense of Ayinger celebrator. It had actually non of the same characteristics. This is was light brown with light head. It was ok but not what i would expect from a doppelbock. 6/3/6/3/13.

Re-rate: almost 3 years later I will stick by my first rating even if its a bit under-descriptive. Aroma has lagered fruitiness, not a good thing, and a mix of wet bark and cardboard. Taste is thin and badly lagered because there is a bad residual sweetness left over. Too thin and awkwardly sweet. Not a good doppelbock and one I will probably never revisit again (3 years and nothing has changed). As I drink this the unbalanced sweetness gets more and annoying. Ugh, sweet and vegetable-like. 6/3/6/3/12

hopdog (8760) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a mahagony color with a off white/brownish head. Malty aromas (caramel). Tastes like it smells. Sweet beginning. Alcohol well hidden. I’m not sure if I am a Doppelbock fan or not, but this beer didn’t do it for me.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Clear brown color with slight red on the sides. Aroma was malty with dried fruits, hops and caramel. Taste has a rich nuttiness and caramel. Thick mouthfeel and slight hop finish.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Can’t have the Governator because of Arnie so I guess I’ll have to settle for the Troegenator. This is a very smooth flavorful beer. Not chewy but rich and strong malts. Very nice beer. Troegs doesn’t disappoint.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Copper-colored, with a good head and lace. Aroma of malt, some hops, caramel, and fruit. Tastes bold, complex, with hints of malt, caramel, fruit, and cabernet. Nice balance. A good beer.

At first I didn?t think I could finish the whole six pack as I found the doppelbock to be a hard beer to drink, I got used to it over time. Pretty harsh and heavy to drink at first for an amatuer. Not the best example of the style.
