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.

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

Bottle, thanks Christina! Rich caramel aroma with notes of toffee, bread and dark fruit. Pours dark copper colored with a thin tan head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and toffee malt flavors with just a touch of chocolate. Finishes smooth with bready malt, dark fruit sweetness and a pinch of hoppiness. Really nice bock without the booziness of most.

migwell (271) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle into snifter. Beautiful ruby red color, pretty flat and looks like port wine in the glass. Smells of dark sugar. Medium light body. low carbonation. I don’t find this particularly sweet for the style, nor does the alcohol overwhelm the taste. Rich flavor with a bit of caramel and chocolate and hops, but everything is well balanced and gives this often fairly simply style a nice complexity. Although I like the style, I don’t drink a lot of dopplebocks, but if I do, this is one I will seek out

nota (43) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Reddish-brown, transparent with slightly tanned head and ultra-fine carbonation. Caramel, toffee, raisin, fig, pumpernickel bread crust. Not as warm and boozy as expected but still an excellent, comforting brew. Finishes with sweetness slightly cut by toasted bread.

thegreenrooster (3810) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is dark fruit on buttery dark bread. Flavor is something like an unsweetened raison bread. You get a bit of the dark fruit but also a decent drying bready feel. There is a bit of caramel felt after the swallow but not enough to be overly sweet. I don’t have many dobblebocks but I would this one would be high on my list just for the dark fruit flavor alone.

Bottle at Bills, haven’t had this one in ages. amber brown color with small head. Cherry soy sauce, pours Plum, and weird funk. So sweet and candied out and not my thing these days.

ryecatcher (1237) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle. Drank this at Heather’s house on Saturday 2/6/16. Deep brown pour medium off-white head with decent retention. Nose is big malts, raisins, toast, caramel. Mouth is medium-full, decent sweetness, crusty pumpernickel toast, nutty, caramel, chewy. Not bad, but I’ve had better. And the fact they drifted from the German name for the style on the label irritated a couple shades of fuck out if me (especially in a beer from a state that loves to boast about their German heritage.... and fuck the Nittany Lions BTW).

Tall can from Cork 57. Nose is malty, sweet, caramel, spicy. Taste is dark brown sugar, caramel, malts, fruits. Smooth, creamy texture. Sweet finish. Pretty good. Quite alcy and warming.

jsporrer (415) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Poured from a can. Pours a clear medium dark mahogany with a large off-white head of foam. Semi-sweet toffee aroma. Minimal carbonation. Light to medium texture. Very smooth. Flavors of caramel and toffee. Not too sweet and they don’t last very long. Smooth finish. Flavors could have been bolder. OK but not great.
