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.

a decent brew but perhaps lacking a little in the flavor department. nice hoppiness but not overly complex.

RKanis (152) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2010
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%).

pours mahogany with off white head. aroma of raisins, malt and alcohol. tastes sweet and malty; breads and pit fruit, zucchini bread, cherry, sautéed carrots. obviously, quite complex. palate is full and sticky.

shroud0fdoom (150) - Maryland, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Smells of sweet wild cherries, candi sugar, mild licorice, some alcohol . Dark brown almost ruby red, well filtered. First malt sweetness, this is weird of me to say but some oak follows through, sweet cherries, mild booze. Full on the palate. This is a nice after dinner digestive. Very nice.

rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Bottle from Winking Lizard. Pours a nice copper red color that’s really quite appealing. Aroma is pretty good with sweet malts, raisins, handfruits, and a subtle nuttiness. Taste is sort of a letdown; the complexity from the aroma is replaced with a pretty straightforward malty caramel flavor. Creamy and full-bodied. Could have been better.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2004
eep red color, lightly carbonated, syrupy full mouth coating body. good malt taste, complementing yet submissive hop bitterness. Not one to turn down.

Rib Eye (148) - USA - APR 29, 2003
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.

NaturalIce (148) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2008
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)
