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.

Nice cloudy light brown appearance. Very light aroma. Smooth going down. Mild woody taste. Winey sweet/sour aftertaste, which I'm not fond of. Not my style.

This would be a lot better is the alcohol content were reduced to around 5-5.5%. AVB ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Caramel color with good initial head presence that last sin the lacing process. Smell is a deep malt with molasses notes. Taste is deep and rich in malt and molasses with a hint of hops. Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth rich and deep. Drinkability is excellent.

Reviewed 8-22-10 I poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Troegs "Mad Elf" tulip. Ap: Dark red, almost into Cherry Coke territory, with a slight foamy head. Perfectly acceptable for this style. Ar: Cherry is the main scent I’m detecting. I spent a few seconds here and the sweetness is very much a kind to beet sugar. T: Rich, yet a bit on the bland side. The sugar is very in your face, but not totally in a bad way. This would be a good accompaniment to cheesecake. P: Coats the mouth with tons of sugar. Definitely full-bodied, which are what Double Bocks are supposed to be. The carbonation is pleasant. O: I honestly couldn’t imagine having more than one. Overall: I am a big fan of Troegs, however, this is one brew in their line-up that I think could use some work. Admittedly, this style isn’t my favorite, but this is still sort of a "by the numbers" Doppelbock.

EinStein (52) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Pours a nice amber color with a quickly fading off-white head. Dark fruits dominate the nose, with some toasty notes and a little caramelly flavor. The toasty notes become more prominent in the taste, but still play a supporting role to the dark fruits; low to medium bitterness complements a nice, chewy mouthfeel. However, the alcohol in this is a bit too present. Overall, a solid doppelbock, tasty but nothing extraordinary.

Hazy dark cherry red pour, very thin almost non existent head. Aroma of over ripped bananas is most present, followed by caramel notes, hints of dark cherry, and raisin a little bit of that sweet chocolate as well. Some really nice and interesting flavors. Some sweet cherry and caramel at front then turns a little tart in the middle and finish as a nutty chocolate almost hazelnutty. Very very yummy and very enjoyable!
