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: JAN 29, 2004 A hair lighter in color than some of the "authentic" german dopples. Wonderful earthy and buttery nose. Well made. Especially telling is how it holds the sweetness together when warm.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Bottled: Beautiful, clear amber coloring with a nice malt aroma. Caramel malt flavors which hide the alcohol well and a little more hops presence than typical. Not as complex as the German offerings, but one of the best American doppelbocks I've tried.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Pours a nice copper with a thick white head that doesn't last. Aroma is slighty sweet and malty. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Raisins, dark fruit, and caramel. Hide's the alcohol fairly well. It's ok, but it's nothing like a German doppelbock.

A very smooth, rich doppel. Tons of malty sweetness with a richy bready flavor. Very good this time of year.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Pours a dark copper brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet caramel bock aroma. Body has a pleasant caramel sweetness, but doesn't quite have the complexity of its German counterparts. Finishes caramel sticky sweet with a warming touch. Still a very nice American dopplebock.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Dark amber color. Medium head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and dark fruits. A medium bodied dopplebock. Malts are rich, fruity and sweet. Touch of toffee, bread and molasses. Very smooth tasting. Hides the 8.2% alcohol very well. Perhaps a little thin? A nice dopplebock. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Interesting take on a doublebock.Yeast hit me as strange at first.Smells of raisin,yeast/malt(light chocolate),hops.Ruby amber color/stellar head/some lace.Smooth/alcohol managed well.Solid finish/weird at first.Good beer.Bottle-best before 6/04.Gets better upon warmth.

Light ruby color with a small head. Sweet doughy aroma, starts sweet and ends dry. Full bodied with a light sticky mouthfeel. I am shocked that this is 8.2%.
