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.

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

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 (7824) - 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.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2004
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.

CapFlu (4493) - 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.
