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.

12 oz bottle; Aroma strong of alcohol and malt. Flavor is very sweet and almost too sweet for me as I like bitter beer better. The palate warms you up as it finishes and turns ever so slightly to bitter. Good alcohol content! Not my favorite style of beer but good for what its worth.

Allara (148) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2011
22 oz bomber. Pours a beautiful ruby red/mahogany color with a thin white head. Nice malty aroma that is accentuated with slight sweet notes and some spices. Medium to light body with a nice slight chewiness to it. Very drinkable especially for 8.2% ABV. Sweetness up front gives way to slight maltiness that finishes ever so slightly dry with a hint of sweet spice. Really well balanced and extremely enjoyable! Overall: (A)

Troegs accomplishes the amazing feat of brewing quintessential examples of every style they try. This doppel defines craftmanship. Excellent balance of strong malt and hop flavors with a slight smoke taste. Not my fave style or fave brew from Troegs, but really, really well done. Like all Troegs, it's not pasteurized so the clean, fresh, bready flavors really shine through.

Troegs is an excellent brewery. Troegenator is malty and bready in flavor with a knock out punch. Could easily pass for a German doppelbock.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - MAR 11, 2004
An amberish-honey colored beer with a tan head of densely packed bubbles. Aroma is a bit funky and redonlent of molasses. Medium rich mouthfeel, smooth and sweet. Could use a bit more hops to finish it off, but a tasty bock nevertheless.

A really good doppelbock. It finishes dry, not sweet....something I really like. This is not a heavy, suffocating doppelbock.

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2008 Poured deep red-mahogany with very thin head that rapidly dissipated. Dark fruit and light malt aroma. Very sweet, malty flavor. Seems a bit on the thin side. Easy to drink but with some alcohol burn. Nice but lacks the pizzaz of other Troegs beers.

rcweir (139) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 30, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2010 Dark cranberry red pour from 12 oz bottle. Thin head, nice lacing. Carmel notes dominate somewhat one dimensional taste, almost kettle caramelized.

CJfromPhilly (139) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Pours a clear reddish brown/rusty color with an off white head that settles down into a minimal covering. Fairly active carbination. Aroma is of carmel & a little vanilla. Flavor is a bready maltiness, with more hints of caramel and vanilla. Little to no hops present in the flavor, this is NOT a brew for you hopheads out there. Sweetness is cut by a hint of alcohol, but it’s well hidden for a beer listed at 8.2% abv. Medium body & texture. Has a fairly clean, slightly bitter finish. Overall, one of my favorite beers, it turned me into a Doppel lover!!
