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.

Average sized off-white head. It’s a deep amber in color. There was a fairly strong sweet odor after I poured it, but then diminished to just a light sweet smell. Initial flavor is quite sweet the finish is light bitterness. I did not taste as much alcohol as I expected.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Pours with a small white head, but it lasts and laces. Aroma is weak with malty yeasty scent. Taste is pretty hoppy, I expected more malt due to the aroma. This one hides the high alcohol content very well. It’s fairly carbonated. Aftertaste is smooth and lasting. Nice drink with Troegs hoppy flavors.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Poured a clear reddish hued amber with a thin quickly disappearing off white head. Fruity aroma of oranges, peach, and grape. Also notes of caramel and alcohol. Flavors of lightly sweet malt that quickly turns to a long lasting almost unpleasant bitterness. Body feels almost thick at first sip but then thins quickly.

a decent brew but perhaps lacking a little in the flavor department. nice hoppiness but not overly complex.

An acceptable example of a Doppelbock, there are surely better ones out there. Good amber-red color and decent aroma. Thin tan head that disappears quickly. Taste is smooth, malty, light and a bit thin. Flavor fades quickly. Alcohol is there but does not take over.

Pailhead (5633) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Bottle: Nice buttery caramel and toffee aromas. Pours a transparent orangish-brown with a small off-white head. Not nearly as flavorful as most good doppelbocks. Lightly sweet with a toffee apple finish. Thanks to wolhfs.

Bottle. Chestnut colored. Slight white head. Rich molasses and caramel aroma. Medium bodied and smooth. Very malty flavors with caramel and light molasses and maple present. Tasty.

can8ianben (1402) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Not bad, I enjoyed the hoppy aroma and flavour. Colour is nice but the cost might not be worth the beer you buy. Enjoyed it more than the HopBock from Troegs

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Tap at Kclinger’s publik house in Etters, PA. Pours an orangey amber color with minimal white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Malty, sweet (overly sweet in my opinion) flavor with a slight hop punch at the finish. The alcohol is palpable. Not very drinkable.
