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.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
The beer is dark plum to amber in color with an inch of beige head. Audible fizzing. The aroma brings lager yeast, dark fruit, plums, toffee, caramels. Sweetness that was present in the aroma carries into the flavor. Lingering sweet toffee chews, candy. Hints of brown bread. Malty throughout. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. With Ayinger Celebrator sitting around on shelves at most decent beer stores, it's hard to choose another doppelbock. Still, this is worth a visit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at room temperature. A: Pours a clear russet brown, and forms a thin tan head that quickly disappears into a cap and ring. Virtually no lacing. S: Caramel toffee malt, sweet and warm, wafts out of the glass. There’s a faint musty tone underlying the malt, a bit like a horse blanket. T: Toffee malt with a side of caramel, right out the gate, with some biscuity tones along for the ride. Sweetness is definitely a hallmark of this beer - it drinks a bit like a bread pudding. I get no fruity tones or tastes to this beer, so I am uncertain if those might come out with some age. It’s a tour de sweet malt, though! The ABV stays well hidden, even through the finish, which lingers as a spot of molasses toast. M: Creamy, sticky, and full, this is definitely a doppelbock. O: Solid indeed, for a US crack at a doppelbock. It could stand a bit more fruit character to round out the flavor profile, but overall, not bad.

Draft @ Bocktown, PIT. Very dark amber color, with very little tan head. Didn’t notice any aroma, but there had to be some! Very nice malty flavor. Almost a little too sweet. medium bodied. Pretty dopplebock.

dliberto (181) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Poured from can into a snifter. Pours a dark brown/red with a very small tan head. Aroma consists of dark fruits, nuts, roasted malts, and caramel. All of those aromas come through in the taste with additions to vanilla, toffee, tobacco, and chocolate. Some aluminum comes through in the taste as well, but it does not dampen the flavor. It is a very sweet beer. Medium bodied beer with low carbonation and a velvety mouth feel.

HourGlass13 (111) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Pours a deep copperish brown pour, with a Small beige head. Aroma is very rich bready caramel malt. The taste is sweet with some toasted malt flavor and hints of vanilla, dark fruit and baked bread. Chewy mouth feel. some spicy hops in the finish but not overbearing. Very tasty and true to the Doppelbock style.

Pours a nice Carmel brown with low carbonation. Head settles quickly to a ring. Bready malts and finishes with a little cherry? Nice body. Bought it because I heard it won a medal at GABF. Way to go fellow Pennsylvanian.
