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.

Strong beer, the alcohol is definitely present. It has a very odd and strong taste that just doesn’t do it unless youre in the mood for it.

Bottles in trade form Hopdog and Leftmindedrighty. Thanks!
Pours a dark clear reddish color with a smallish creamy beige head. Smell is lightly smoky and sweet, musty malts. Tastes lightly smoky and a touch tart with toasty biscuity and caramel maltiness. Slight taste of alcohol in the finish. Full body and soft to medium carbonation. Pretty good beer, but just don’t think I was in the mood for this today.

Bomber from Rivers Bend.
Pours brown in color with ruby highlights around the edges. Decent inch of frothy head atop the beer. Smell is slight toffee and a bit of a lager smell as well. Mouthfeel is pillowy soft and very nice. Taste is lacking a little complexity and strength. Needs more toffee/caramel and a supporting flavor. They nailed the mouthfeel though.

<b>In short: </b>A Doppelbock on the fruity side of things. Good but nothing special.
<b>How: </b>Bottle 12oz, consumed fresh a few days after purchase
<b>The look: </b>Cloudy redish-brown body topped by a small off-white head
<b>In long: </b>This is a very fruity Doppelbock. Lots of dark fruits, red fruits, any color fruits. Round and smooth body. Some barley candies and molasses. Light earthy/peat notes. Actually the whole thing ends up feeling like fruit concentrate and watery molasses. Finish brings some hops with a tobacco-like flavour, more of this would have been great. Even if very juicy the beer is actually quite heavy. No alcohol presence at all. So I see here they call this the “liquid bread”, yep, topped that with some Rogue Hazelnut and a little NG Raspberry Tart and I’ve got myself the ultimate breakfast.

12 oz bottle pours brownish copper and a bit cloudy. Aroma of toffee and honey. Slightly over sweet body with no real direction. I think this one is overrated as a beer. Familiarity has bread discontent.

Aroma is yeasty and also a bit spicy. Also dark roasted malt if you examine it more closely. Some licorice in the flavor and palate. Not one of Troeg’s best offerings in my opinion.

shigadeyo (3180) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2009

9/04/2008: Troegenator has a grainy, watery manure-like aroma that has some generic beer maltiness but is quite weak overall. This beer is sweet, roasty, and malt with that typical Germal Doppelbock-like character and some slight tobacco. This beer has a transparent borwn color and a carmelized beige-colored head and decent lacing. It is medium to medium-full in body and is slightly syrupy. Overall is has a solid Doppelbock flavor and is good, but not great.

12 fl. oz. bottle (8.2 alc/vol). Rating #596 for this beer.

On tap at dingle house. Dark brown tan head, okay lacing. Hints of roasted nut and caramel floral undertones. Only mild sweetness then a bitter dry raisin finish. Alcohol hidden okay but still drinks strong.

This beer is maintaining my nutritional needs just fine. Smells pretty terrible, but a good doublebock beer. The horned guy on the label may give me unplesant dreams.
