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.

Very bready taste, and suprisingly smooth for the alcohol content. Not my favorite, but would surely drink again

I prefer the Heller style - but had to try this. It is serviceable. The aroma is the best part. Comes off very nice with all the scents you’d expect. That was the highlight. Everything else was average. It almost felt like a stout. too much alcohol taste that they evidently tried to mask but the sweetness used was a bit too much. May buy again to reassess - for now, its just ok.

Pours a dark brown with medium tan head. Aromas of citrus, bread, toast. Roasty, lightly sweet, light bitterness - medium body. Average carbonation with slick texture and long finish. This is a good malty beer.

Troegenator starts with a rich malty aroma with hints of caramel. A clear reddish amber with a tan head that sticks with the glass. Big yeasty bread tastes and linger roasted malts, perhaps a hint of vanilla or wood. Full body with creamy texture and soft, tiny carbonation that still has enough gas to make you "Urp." Some hoppish bitterness much later on the finish. fyi: the bottle image and beer colour appearing here are not representative of my last 2 years with this beer.

A terrific doublebock if ever there was one. Little head, nice, full-bodied flavor, and an 8.2% ABV. I like high octane brews, but the flavor in this one truly wins out over the buzz. One of my all time faves.

12 oz bottle pours to a copper color. Strong malty aroma with nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet and full body. Very drinkable and with a 8.2% ABV kick. I definitely liked this one. Another good beer from Troegs.

Sweet aroma, clear amber red. Malty initial after taste with not much long lasting after taste. It will get you everywhere you need to be!

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.

Wow! A pleasent surprise. My first brew from this brewery. Have to be careful with this one. Taste so good you forget about the 8.2. And that my friend will cause you a world of hurt.

This is a very sweet and malty beer with hints of cherry and caramel. Lots of booze and borderline syrup but surprisingly drinkable. No lacing, odd color. Definitely not a classic dopplebock, nor a great one. But good nonetheless.
