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.

lamas (1494) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle. Bottled on: 08/19/04. Bright amber pour with smallish sandy head that leaves some lacing. Very fizzy. Chocolate, caramel and malts present in the nose along with some bananas and berries. Plenty of sweet malts and fruity flavors including banana. Some caramel present too. Pretty smooth going down. Only a slight presence of warming alcohol.

WBC (8) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2005 does not count
A little bit more smokey than I prefer my doppelbock. This beer provides an adequate abv% with a good punch to warm the palate as well as the soul on those long & cold winter evenings, however it could have been a little more balanced. The complex nose of this beer reveals a little charred walnut, smoked meat & subtle vanilla. I just wish it would have delivered on the palate a little better. Even though I expected more form this beer, I understand why those of the cloth chose to create and consume these types of beers to help them through those tumultuous 40 days. Cheers to troegs brewery for paying tribute to those wise monks before them.

Sweet and fairly complex. Not as solid as Victory’s St. Victorious. Good caramel color. Alcohol isn’t notable.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2005
Deep ruby with a small white head. Sweet malt aromas of apples and yeast. Both strong and subtle overall, with fruity caramel notes that hide the tangible alcohol content. Slightly sweet smooth floral finish.

amber in color, very little white head. The sweet flavor masks the alcohol. and has a very smooth finish.

sirchris (42) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2005
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.
