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.

What a nice pour ... shiny red with a towering head that clung to the side of the glass in a desperate attempt to stay afloat. Big bready aroma. Chewy and flavorful, like a holiday cake with a bit of brandy and brown sugar, this fills you up.

I absolutely loved this beer. 12 oz. - dark amber, not like picture, with just a bit of foam. Full, round and smooth. Tastes like caramel, chocolate and grapefruit. Not cloying to me, just delicious with no hints to its 8.2% abv. Pretty inexpensive too

Delicious beer. Poured a bright brownish-orange color with a half-inch white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Great hops flavor without being too over the top.

Thanks to the good folks at Roadhouse in Brookline for this one. Beautiful brew. Nice caramel brown color and thick off-white head (almost tan). Aroma is sweet malt with a slight alcohol burn as well (though not overpowering). Flavor is balanced malt and just a nice slight touch of hops. Loved it. Wish it were more readily available up here.

Deep amber color with tan foamy head. Nice malty aroma with slight traces of dried fruit. Malty yeasty bread flavour with traces of caramel and spice. Lingering ba;anced aftertaste

Definitely my new favorite. Opens with chocolate notes but with a smooth finish unlike any dark beer I’ve ever had. Bravo.

Think I drank the whole keg at the Met in Lima, Ohio over several visits. Bold and Tastey; sweet and roasty; ginger and vanilla in the finish.

Pours a nice dark amber color with a medium head that dispates quickly leaving little lacing. Nice malty aroma with a slight sweetness. Very malty flavor with a fruity sweetness and caramel and a little bit of hops bitterness, but very little. A delicious beer worth trying no matter what kind of beer you like.

Excellent aroma full of plums. No hops noticeable on the nose. The appearance is a dark amber brown with an off white head with good head retention. The beer is crystal clear. Flavor wise, it's super malty with lots of melanoidin complexities. Hop flavor is minimal per style. Alcohol warmth is noticeable but smooth in character. The mouthfeel is full and smooth like a milk shake. Overall, it's one of my favorite Dopplebocks. Malty and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bready and sweet aroma. Non clinging aftertaste. Slight heat like a generic cough syrup. I know these are weird descrips, but it’s funny what one person’s taste and smell are to another. Anyhow, my first Troegs Bros. and I will pursue them further....not in a romantic way...you know what I mean. Very good D Bock!
