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.

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.

One of my favorite beers of all time. Its got some punch behind it due to its high amount of alchohol. The bar tender told me when I bought it that she doesn’t allow people to buy more than 2 of these in a sitting, lawl. Very, very sweet with a malty sweet finish. Flavor is fruity and sweet and tastes very good.

This is one great Doppelbock. Very malty in taste and amber in color, this is one of the best out there.

I did a blind taste test with Troegs and Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock (generally acknowledged to be the best Doublebock). The Troegenator won. It doesn't have the deep dark appearance of the Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock but it tastes better. So much of beer is psychological; the only way to compare beers is to do blind taste tests. Troegs makes some great beers; they don't microfilter or pasturize. Their beers are the best except for their Lager (too bland but I guess that goes with the style) and their pilsner (I like Pislner Urquell a lot more).

This was a nice surprise from Troegs. Bronze color, malty nose and little spice. Well done.

Troegenator Double Bock is brewed with Pilsner, Munich, and Chocolate malts, then hopped with both Hallertau and Saaz hop varieties. It is then largered, and comes in at a warming 8.2% abv, making it a stylistically flawless example of a classic German beer style. This beer is rich, smooth, flavorful, and warming, everything a good double bock should be. Troegenator pours to a beautiful, bright, deep bronze color with a slight white head that fades, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with deep aromas of toasty/nutty sweet malt, slight grassy hop aroma, and some peppery alcohol. The palate is as impressive as the nose, with a sea of deep sweet malty, toasty, and nutty flavors that are just so smooth, round, and clean on the palate. Troegenator finishes with more deep malty character up front, and is balanced out to complete perfection, with just the right amount of grassy/spicy hop bitterness to give this beer sublime balance.

22oz bomber from the Liquor Shop in Tyngsborro, Mass. Pours a brilliant translucent red-brown with a half inch of light tan head. Caramel, nut, toffee, and a slight background of herbal hops characterize the aroma. Caramel and toffee hit first in the flavor, plenty of nut, slightly herbal hops in the background, and just a hint of alcohol warmth, though it does not taste like an 8.2% beer. Toward the fuller side of body with moderate carbonation. Not viscous like some dopplebocks, makes this one more refreshing and drinkable than expected. All around, one of the best dopplebocks I have ever had. Well-balanced, drinkable, pretty. No complaints here. Glad I can get this in Tyngsborro!

A dark copper with ruby edges flows out of the bottled adorned with an interesting looking character set off with bushy white hair and a nasty set of horns. I assume he is The Troegenator. Smells like bread and spice. Not a lot of hops here, but I do get some sweet, toasty bread, some spice in the finish with a bit of chocolate in the aftertaste. Not really bitter, and the 8.2% ABV is sneaky.

One of my favorite beers. This is not your typical dopplebock, its taste goes well beyond that. When people are starting to cross over from macro-brews I recommend this because if they don’t like this, they probably won’t care for much in the way of microbrews.
