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.

hopscotch (8541) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
A lovely crystal clear copper brew. Medium-sized khaki-colored, fizzy head. Quickly and fully diminishing. Rich, buttery, malty nose with huge notes of spruce and butterscotch. The flavor is also malty and rich. Light molasses, caramel and English toffee up front. Excellently balanced with a lightly pungent and moderately bitter hop presence on the backside. Full-bodied with a very oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Long, bitter and dry finish. Great brew! Worth Pursuing!

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Pours a nice brown/amber color wtih a small head. Aroma is malty and caramel. Hints of overripe fruit and roast. Flavor is very full...tons of caramel malt, yeast, and raisins. Golden raisins. Easy and smooth. I enjoyed. It is what it is...

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a mahagony color with a off white/brownish head. Malty aromas (caramel). Tastes like it smells. Sweet beginning. Alcohol well hidden. I’m not sure if I am a Doppelbock fan or not, but this beer didn’t do it for me.

Bottle @ Dan’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Clear, reddish brown appearance with a small tan head. Rich, toffee, big caramel malty, slight hay aroma. Delicious, very rich caramel malty, big toffee, fairly sweet yet balanced flavor. Excellent beer!

JoeMcPhee (8214) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber-brown beer with a thick off-white head. Rich sweet toasty aroma. Chewy with a light caramel and sweet dark malt aroma. Excellent soft chewy palate. Well-lagered bocky malts. Clean toasted malt. Excellent balance of soft sweet maltiness, clean nuttiness and whole grain bread. A kiss of brown sugary sweetness. A very well-made doppelbock.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Bottle, Brickskeller. Medium dark brown color. Rich and sweet nose containing currants, cherries, nutmeg, with a slight alcohol nose along with a dominat maple scent. Toasted honey flavors, moderately thick texture, sweet, herbal flavors. Some dogfood smells though, and chewy at times, biscuity, sweet maple and brown sugar. A tasty beer but not the prototypical doppelbock.

JorisPPattyn (7717) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2012
Armenian cognac colour, no head. Sweet bread, roasted chestnuts, caramel and toffeearomas. Bitter-leafy & earthy, but the background is essentialy spicy; cinnamon, pepper, allspice. Very slick, gives a fast-enough sensation, partly because of the spices. A spiced Doppelbock? Didn’t think so...
