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.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 I dont know. It was alright. Nothing special, I wouldn’t buy a case of it, or doubtfully a six pack of it again if there is anyt options. Maybe not my style of beer

Bottle. To my surprise, I really enjoyed this one. Pour was a dark red, brown mix with two fingers of head. Malts and hops were very well balanced with taste of caramel and maybe some honey. Fruit was of cherries. I will need to pick up another to rerate, as I was enjoying this beer so much I didnt take good notes.

From a bottle. Pours a bright amber color. Malty and dark fruit aroma with some hops and alcohol coming through. Taste is initially sweet then give way to a bitter finish with alittle alcohol burn.

Tap at Kclinger’s publik house in Etters, PA. Pours an orangey amber color with minimal white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Malty, sweet (overly sweet in my opinion) flavor with a slight hop punch at the finish. The alcohol is palpable. Not very drinkable.

The troegenator just dominated me. Completely overwhelming strength in my opinion, but this rating is rather biased because mine was slighlty warm. Anyways, besides the fact it was tough to take down, it had not lived up to the full-bodied description. This was more a rush of alcohol with little consistency or balance. Perhaps a bad one from the batch ... or maybe I just have problems.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2004
Amber/brown clear body with a large beige sudsy head that has good duration and a fair lace. Malty caramel aroma with a light hint of hop and alcohol. Some good toasty notes are in there. Starts with a dominant caramel malty sweetness and mild fruitiness. Has a bit of hop balance but definitely sweeeet. Alcohol is masked well. Medium body, juicy mouthfeel finishes lighty bitter. Enjoyable brew, enjoyable price.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2011 THIS RED COPPER BEER WITH TONS OF HEAD AND SWEET CARAMEL AROMA IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR EVERY ONE, BUT I PERSONALY ENJOY IT. IT HAS A NICE BALANCE OF RICH SWEET TOASTED CARAMEL MALT FLAVORS LACED WELL WITH LICORICE ROOT AND A HINT OF CHERRIES. NOT NORMALY MY FAVORITE FLAVORS YET REALLY PUT TOGETHER NICELY THE STRONG FLAVORS ARE ROBUST YET NOT OVER POWERING, THE ONLY DOWN SIDE I SEE IS THAT THIS IS A SPRING SEASONAL BEER, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE ORIGIN OF BOCK BEERS WAS WHEN MONKS WERE FASTING DURING THE SPRING THEY WOULD DRINK BOCKS, HOWEVER I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT COLD WINTER BEER.NEVER THE LESS STILL ANOTHER HIT BY TROEGS!

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
