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.

Not a lot of aroma coming from this beer. Dark mahogany color with a super thick, large brown head -- delicious. Excellent mouthfeel, super creamy, fabulous texture with almost no carbonation. Taste is a malty, toasted coffee with a prune undernote. Very good doppelbock, super enjoyable, but the rating is hurt by a lack of aroma on the pour.

I really dig this beer. It’s rich and sweet without being cloying or overly heavy. The alcohol is present just enough to compliment the malt. Very happy with this one

Poured a copper with minimal head. Taste was fairly simple and soapy. A little bit of malt sweetness helped save a beer that would have been otherwise underwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 330ml bottle, aroma is rich malt with lots of dark fruit, raisins and plums, taste is lucious silk malt flavor. Raisins and plums and crusty bread flavor. Silky mouth feel, medium body medium carbonation. Delicious beer right up there with ayinger captivator.

Bottle. Pours a nice cola brown color with a small khaki head that disappears quickly. Nice aroma of malts, moca and alcohol. Taste is pretty good. Nice blend of roasted malt, dark fruit, spice, dark breads and bitter hops on the finish. Sweet, but not overpowering. I’m glad i bought a sixer of this. Very drinkable.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Caramel colored with a quickly dissipating head. Bold, malty flavor with a clean finish with a modest hit of coiffee flavor. NIce fall offering.

Pours dark brown with a white head. Aroma is of sweet malt, alcohol, and caramel. Taste is also sweet malt, alcohol, and caramel. Pretty good stuff.

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Appearance: Russet, coppertone, the color of English breakfast tea or Captain Morgan’s spiced rum. Not as dark as I was expecting it to be, for sure! Pours a nice milky head. The appearance was one of the nicest things about this one. Nose: Definite esters, honey-roasted peanuts, caramel, and American hops with a strong alcohol undertow. Taste: Spritzy right off the bat, a little sweet-and-sour action, hops (too hoppy for me -- a definite sign of an inappropriate American appropriation of European classiness), tartness, sea salt, brown sugar, cheap Hershey’s chocolate, and bananas on the finish. Palate: Spritzy with a smooth finish. Nice. Overall: Tart for the style. Definitely flaunts its 8.5% for all its worth. This was completely not what I was expecting from a Doppelbock -- oh, how I miss Ayinger Celebrator. This is not German (bananas aside), but a true American spin -- a brown Doppelbock. However, style aside, it’s pleasant enough -- and the more I drink it, the more I like it. Think pairing with chocolate covered pretzels, or desserts with peanut butter. Certain sweet, dark entrees (ok, concession to the German original -- sausage!) would be nice, too. This is a quite amenable and pleasant brew, if definitely on the strong side (I’ve had higher ABV beers that hid their strength and seemed lower than this one’s 8.2%).
