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.

This one pours a brownish red color with a thick foamy tan head. This one smells a bit fruity with notes of chocolate and caramel. The nose on this one is not strong at all. Malty sweetness is what comes up front in the taste followed by a slightly bitter finish. This is a medium bodied beer that goes down smooth. The 8.2 percent was not noticeable which defiantly helped the drinkability. An above average Doppelbock that is good but not my favorite of the style.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured dark brown color with faint orange highlights and a medium sized foamy beige head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, malty with notes of caramel, dark fruits and faint vegetal presence. The flavor was sweet and malty with dark fruits and molasses and vegetal undertone. Long finish. Fairly full bodied. Solid.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Thanks to Willblake for sending this fine trade beer! Hazy deep amber with a quickly diminishing off white head. Malty aroma. The malt on the tongue is right but the body is a bit thin. No alcohol apparent. Body and flavor of a Dunklesbock.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Strong malt tones with a bit of yeast, brown/red hue with a light white head that stays wispy on the top. Very full flavor, with no hops, just like it should be. If you like strong malt flavor with less body than a stout, I recommend this. Just a hint of bitterness on the aftertaste, but not enought to turn me off from this beer.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Bottle. Thanks willblake! clear, medium brown in color with a fine light tan head of middling duration. The nose is caramel, brown sugar, bread and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is nice and full, taste is malt first with roast and caramel malts to the front with a mild hop bitterness underneath. Also, a bit of bandaid character that’s off-putting. Finish is sweet with a bit of alcoholic tongue bite. A decent doppelbock.

jimhilt (2420) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Pours with a two-finger head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Deep, clear amber color. Low carbonation. Nose is malty. Medium bodied. Starts with semi-sweet raisins, finishes mellow, the high ABV is not noticable. $1.55 for a 12oz bottle from Vintage Cellar Blacksburg, Va.

A great rich, complex full bodied double bock. This beer is all it is said to be , and more.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Ruby brown, short long lasting head, good lacing. Very malty and semi-sweet - pecans in praline with almonds and lightly dusted with cocoa. Alcohol is not overly intrusive. Could’ve been thicker.

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.
