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.

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 (7743) - 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.

cheubi (15) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Waaaaaay too hoppy for the style............... Although this beer demonstrates good malty character, it is overshadowed by hoppy finish. Bocks and dopplebocks are clasically malty, sweet, and full-bodied with no real hint of hops throughout the tasting experience. This beer has hops apparent in the finish.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Bottled. This stuff is dangerously drinkable for an 8.2% beer and has loads of caramel and chocolate in the flavor. I like it more than most doppelbocks I’ve tried.

Radek Kliber (6379) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 12, 2004
Sweet malt , off milky aroma. Amber with creamy head . Bitter grass , leaf , dirty yeast . Unpleasant to drink . Celery aftertaste . Served at Mondial de la Bière 2004.

CapFlu (4483) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
(Bottle) Mondial de la Bière 2004. Thin, oily, yellow head with an orane body. . Nose of butter, malt and alcohol. Smooth malt flavour that is thin, plain and lifeless. The logistics in coordinating the shipping of this beer is far greater than the complexity of the brew.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
Raisins, plums, caramel and cardboard in the aroma. Stale? Deep copper with shy off-white head that recedes to light cover. Marginal sudsy lace. Very earthy with subdued fruit. Burnt caramel, toffee. Medium body. Low carbonation. Fairly straight forward and simple and felt somehow stale. Bottle (Sample at Mondial 2004).

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2011 2011-08-10. Very dark brown body wiht a small beige head. 3+ Malty, sugary character, fruity. 7+ Aroma is sweet and fruity, bit alcoholic. 6+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Decent. 7/4/7/3/14 On tap at Goodbar, Buffalo

2004-06-XX. Bottle. Dark red amber with a smallish off white head. Bit of stale cardboard in the aroma indicates that this may not be the freshest bottle around. Flavour has some nice sweet malt and some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Disappointingly restrained doppelbock. Giving it the benefit of the doubt, it may be better on a different day. Hides the alcohol content quite well. Mondial 3T (Radek). 4/3/5/3/12

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a bright amber color with a big slightly off-white head. Smokey aroma that enveloped a slightly hidden sweet. When I tasted it, I did not know what the ABV was, and I’m surprised to see it’s 8.2% for the way it tasted. A nice sweet malt beginning with a biscuity followup and a smooth, smokey finish. Goes down smooth and hides the alcohol well.
