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

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark, reddish amber. Thin tan head. Malty, caramel aroma. Initial sweetness that finishes with a good bit of spice. Certainly bready but somewhat oily.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
appearance; rich amber in color. lightly carbonated, pours with a little head fading to just a ring around glass clear aroma: smells of malts and toffee, warming alcohol can be smelled also taste tastes of sweet malt and warming alcohol notes at end. mouthfeel: thick full body beer that’s smooth. Warming alcohol taste at end. drinkability: good beer but not too many at one time because of the high alcohol content. notes could use a liitle bit more carbonation. this also is a good beer for cellaring.

Quite simply, this brew is delicious in all the ways a beer can be judged. Pricey, but worth every cent.

Weezel (174) - Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours a beautiful deep deep amber. Sweet aromas of dark fruits. Taste is dark cherries up front then a quick bubbly hit of hops. Finishes super smooth with a bready character. Good stuff.

12 ounce bottle. Deep copper brown pour. Small bubbly beige head. Rich bready caramel malt nose. Sweet toasted malt flavor. Notes of brown sugar, vanilla, dried dark fruit and baked bread. Chewy mouthfeel. Spicy hops in finish. Very tasty and true to the Doppelbock style.

TXBadger (1256) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a darker brown color with minimal off-white head. Dark fruits, biscuit, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a sweet note.

Atheist_Peace (928) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Clear dark mahogany pour with lots of tan head that really sticks to the sides of the glass. Lots of molasses, brown sugar and dark fruit on the nose with hints of gingerbread and spice. The fruit comes out a lot more on the palate and there’s a certain refreshing jolt in there before the weight and sweetness take over. Finishes with some bitterness that doesn’t bog the palate down. Pretty tasty.

davey101 (653) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 29, 2014
12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 11/05/2013. Pours a dark red amber with some thin khaki edging with nice lacing. Nose is toffee caramel malt, cherries and rasins, and wet lager. Taste is caramel, dark fruits, lager yeast, cereal grains, and candi sugar. Pretty tasty but not quite up to snuff on the German stuff or my favorite american d-bock Hooker’s Liberator. Still a very solid beer though.

Can from Sean - thanks! From the can. Heavy, dark sweet malt in the aroma with raisin, molasses, and doughy raisin bread. Taste is sweet, doughy malt with raisin, plum, and spices toward the finish. Chewy, lightly coating mouth feel. This is really good; bonus points for the 16 ounce can presentation.
