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.

hopdog (11560) - 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.

Dogbrick (11492) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle at Firewaters in Atlantic City. This brew pours a dark brownish-amber color with a thin off-white head that dissipates fairly fast. Spotty lacing throughout. Roasted malt aroma with hints of alcohol and raisins. Medium, smooth body with sweet malt and caramel flavors, accompanied by notes of hops here and there. The finish is on the sweet side with caramel and malt, followed by touches of hops and a bit of burning alcohol. Above average Doppelbock for my money.

crossovert (11345) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz brown bottle. Bottled 07/23/10. It pours a nice reddish brown with a foamy off-white head. The head stick sfor a bit and recedes to a bit of nice lacing. This is a fruity, alcoholic smelling doppelbock. Really heavy on the fruit. It is basic but pleasant. The flavor is also fruity, but with a huge kick of sweet caramel. Layers of caramel hit you and the sweetness while high, isn’t too overbearing. The dark fruits accent it well bringing to mind some fine bon bons. Of course it pales in comparison to Salvator, but it can compete surprisingly with some of the other German doppelbocks, very nice from Troeegs. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-24-2010 05:52:51
