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.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2009
Had the Troegenator tonight on draft at Shorty’s in NYC. In a word: delicious. This potent beer is tasty. Pours a light gold with a medium head. Nose of toasted caramel malts. The flavor is rich, mild fruity notes with strong hop character and a bit of breadiness. Finishes nicely, with that lip-smacking quality that strong beers possess. You musn’t chug this guy. Enjoy it, which isn’t hard.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Mild malziger Antrunk, der nur wenig Süße beinhaltet und deutlich auf die nun cremig werdene Malzigkeit abziehlt. Nun doch etwas süße, das Bier wird insgesamt milder und verlagert kurzzeitig seinen Schweprunkt, nur um dann im Abgang stärker auf das Malz zurückzukommen, ds hier trockene Züge hat, zudem passt der Hopfen hier gut, lässt das Bier aber wie die Süße milder erscheinen. Herb-malziger, zu kurzer Abgang. Im Nachgeschmack mittelstark röstig. 9/9/10/11/11/11

Travlr (9997) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Appearance is clear chestnut with almost no head or lacing. Smell is sweet caramel and chocolate, with hints of vanilla. Taste is exactly like the German chocolate cake that my grandmother used to make, it’s un-canny. Sweet caramel and chocolate throughout. Mouthfeel is slightly thin for its strength. Sweeter than your average doublebock, but nice if you like the style.
