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.

This is a hell of a good double bock from a fine brewer. Aroma is yeasty, bready. Ruby colored pour with an off white head....tons of lacing. Well balanced nutty and fruity malts. No hop aftertaste, but I don’t really expect it from this style.

A reddish brown pour with a nice off white head that laces the glass. An aroma of bread emerges. Very smooth going down with a warming of the throat as the temperature increases. A very good beer from a very good brewery.

bottle, nice deep brownish red color... a very subtle and sweet arome with a brown sugar/caramel scent that compliments the flavor.. sweet with a slight hint of bitterness on the tongue... a very pleasant and flavorful beer

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2009 Pours a mahogany brown with red highlights and thin egg-shell head. Aroma of plum, raisin, and smoke. Flavor has a hint of alcohol, cherries, very sweet. Very nice indeed. Awesome label.

Cold bottle from Beach Liquors, Bethany , De. whiskey brown color, off whit head with thin short-lived laceSpicey malt aromea with slight acid alcohol sharpness. Rich-malty round flavor, caramel, chocolate, some wood and raison. Reminiscent of Unibroue Terrible or even a light version of DFH Raison d’Etre. crisp finish. I’ll drink at least 4 of these...

It tastes just as it smells. Pure maltiness in both aroma and flavor. As with the hops, though, there is only a slight bitterness and no aroma. It smells and tastes like the malts used for brewing beer.

I sampled a bottle of this at "Bagpipes" pub in Cincinnati, Ohio - It poured dark with a light tan head of foam and was tastey.... I like it.

Aroma is bread and strong malts. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, a hint of dark fruit and a mildly alcoholic finish.

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!

In a word: Delicious. An excellent doppelbock: sure it’s a bit sweet, but again, it’s a doppelbock.
