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.

(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!

Good satisfying beer. I love the name. Beer has a nutty, yeasty malt flavor. Some caramel flavor.

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.

UrbanCaveman (131) - Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2014
12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at room temperature. A: Pours a clear russet brown, and forms a thin tan head that quickly disappears into a cap and ring. Virtually no lacing. S: Caramel toffee malt, sweet and warm, wafts out of the glass. There’s a faint musty tone underlying the malt, a bit like a horse blanket. T: Toffee malt with a side of caramel, right out the gate, with some biscuity tones along for the ride. Sweetness is definitely a hallmark of this beer - it drinks a bit like a bread pudding. I get no fruity tones or tastes to this beer, so I am uncertain if those might come out with some age. It’s a tour de sweet malt, though! The ABV stays well hidden, even through the finish, which lingers as a spot of molasses toast. M: Creamy, sticky, and full, this is definitely a doppelbock. O: Solid indeed, for a US crack at a doppelbock. It could stand a bit more fruit character to round out the flavor profile, but overall, not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2011 Thanks to my buddy who brought one of these back from his vacation back east! Drank this one slightly below room temperature. Smells amazing, some of the typical doppelbock scents - toffee, molasses, and brown sugar. Malt monster! Pours a dark amber with a quickly dissipating off white foam head. Tastes as amazing as it smells. All of the above scents are there, but with the addition of a delicious plum/fig flavor and a subtle earthiness on the finish. Theres also a nice subtle cherry flavor. Good stuff. Thick, chewy, and coats the mouth. OVerall this is one of the best doppelbocks I have had. Definitely recommended.

Pours like a cocacola. Same color with light to medium carbonation. Smells of burnt caramel and grapes. Ver light on the palate and goes down very easy. Tastes as fruity as it smells with little bitterness. Well done.

Deep brown red color with decent white head and lacing. Malts heavily present in aroma. Full bodied and satisfying.

Very nice bock, big flavor. I would market this as a seasonal; has holiday spices galore, pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

codfishh (121) - 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.

russwbeck (117) - Tyrone, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Pour is a deep read with hardly any head. Smell is of malts and caramel. Very earthy. Taste begins with the caramel, but ends with a bit of malt sweetness and dark fruits. Medium bodied with a bit of a bite of carbonation. Also, I get a small amount of creaminess, but not a lot. Hardly a hint of any alcohol.
