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.

BenDover (201) - Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Pours a dark red, not much foam. Nice aroma of malts, yeasty and bready, very pleasant. Tastes a bit lighter than I expected, could be bolder. Good stuff, though.

Pours a beautiful deep deep amber. Sweet aromas of dark fruits. Taste is dark cherries up front then a quick bubbly hit of hops. Finishes super smooth with a bready character. Good stuff.

12 ounce bottle. Deep copper brown pour. Small bubbly beige head. Rich bready caramel malt nose. Sweet toasted malt flavor. Notes of brown sugar, vanilla, dried dark fruit and baked bread. Chewy mouthfeel. Spicy hops in finish. Very tasty and true to the Doppelbock style.

TXBadger (1222) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a darker brown color with minimal off-white head. Dark fruits, biscuit, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a sweet note.

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Clear dark mahogany pour with lots of tan head that really sticks to the sides of the glass. Lots of molasses, brown sugar and dark fruit on the nose with hints of gingerbread and spice. The fruit comes out a lot more on the palate and there’s a certain refreshing jolt in there before the weight and sweetness take over. Finishes with some bitterness that doesn’t bog the palate down. Pretty tasty.

davey101 (649) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 29, 2014
12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 11/05/2013. Pours a dark red amber with some thin khaki edging with nice lacing. Nose is toffee caramel malt, cherries and rasins, and wet lager. Taste is caramel, dark fruits, lager yeast, cereal grains, and candi sugar. Pretty tasty but not quite up to snuff on the German stuff or my favorite american d-bock Hooker’s Liberator. Still a very solid beer though.

peteinSD (1336) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Can from Sean - thanks! From the can. Heavy, dark sweet malt in the aroma with raisin, molasses, and doughy raisin bread. Taste is sweet, doughy malt with raisin, plum, and spices toward the finish. Chewy, lightly coating mouth feel. This is really good; bonus points for the 16 ounce can presentation.

Had from can camping so no idea of appearance other than it is a orange/gold color. Aroma is very typical double bock - nice malt and caramel notes. Taste follows the aroma, nice malty, caramel notes.

A darker more substantial beer. This could definitely be drunk as a food replacement but it's not so heavy that it's not enjoyable. It actually goes down smoother then you would expect for a darker beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA reviewed on 2-10-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep mahogany color with an off color white head that fades rather quickly. A bit of lacing is present, but not all that much. Aroma – Sweet caramel aroma is big and bold. There is some roasted barley and some breadiness which come in more heavily toward the middle and end of the aroma and is mixed with a bit of dried fruit; mostly cherry but a bit of prune as well. Taste – A thick malt flavor of bread and roasted barley initially start the taste. A sweeter caramel and brown sugar come into the picture and sweeten the taste significantly. The sweetness is then enhanced even further with dark fruit flavors with the slightest bit of alcohol working its way in, creating a nice finish to the taste. Mouthfeel – Following the taste, the mouthfeel is thick from the malt. It has a body that coats the tongue with creaminess. The carbonation is perfect for its strength and body, enough to tingle the taste buds, but low enough to enhance the bodies smoothness on the tongue. Very nice. Overall – Big malt and sugary sweet smoothness – the best way to describe this brew. It’s easy to drink even with its potent strength.
