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 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.

A fantastic doublebock, my favorite offering from Troegs. Beautiful reddish brown - call it mahogany, dark amber, whatever, it’s pretty. Light tan or beige head, creamy and medium-bodied. Packs a nice ABV punch. Mildly sweet with molasses and caramel overtones. Pleasant long finish.

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!!

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.

crhensel (138) - New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2010
(Bottle into dimpled mug - sampled 3/9/10) Poured a flat reddish brown with a one finger head that fell fairly fast. Scents of the rich molasses and toffee took over at first and with a little sit, some heady fruit odors came forward, in particular some raisin. A nice medium body with a small carbonation enhances the flavors that come through, again the molasses, and actually a hint of melted butter, which, while off putting at first, grew on me. The alcohol is definitely present, which serves to warm you up quite a bit, leaving you quite content after drinking. I wouldn’t recommend any more than 2 at a sitting, however!

codfishh (137) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
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.

Light citrus & caramel aroma, minimal tan head, beautiful dark amber pour, nicely sweet and sticky palate. Possibly not my favorite, but still worth a six-pack.
