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: AUG 12, 2003 Poured a clear, beautiful copper brown color with an off-white head. It tasted malty and a little sweet but without the alcohol taste I was expecting. It's definitely a good american-brewed doppelbock.

Dark amber color, thick whitish-tan head. Malty cocoa nose. Kinda heavy mouth feel. This is an alright Doublebock.

Dark amber colored beer with a nice off white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with some hints of alcohol. Really malty and does a good job of masking the alcohol content with a rich sweetness. Great doppel.

Pours a dark amber brown. Wonderful malt sweetness, with some nice dark notes in there. Great, non-hoppy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a small white head, but it lasts and laces. Aroma is weak with malty yeasty scent. Taste is pretty hoppy, I expected more malt due to the aroma. This one hides the high alcohol content very well. It’s fairly carbonated. Aftertaste is smooth and lasting. Nice drink with Troegs hoppy flavors.

A nice doppelbock, very sweet and chewy malts. Was a deep amber color, with a white head. Very very tasty and strong, hard to belive its 8.2%

Snoop59 (105) - Penn Run, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2008 12 oz. bottle pours a clear amber brown with an off white frothy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Light malty aroma with hints of caramel and bread. Flavor is a sugary sweet malt with a clean finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. Overall, a well crafted brew.

Pours a dark amber color with some red. The head is large and off white, very nice appearence. Aroma is very light but has some wheat and some fruits. Flavor is a little bitter at first but quickly goes to some bitterness. You can definitly taste wheat and some fruits. The finish is dry that makes you want to drink more. Very nice.

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.
