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.

PorterPounder (7124) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2006
Cork & Bottle Liquors, Baton Rouge, La. - 12 oz bottle. Light copper appearance, little to no head. Thin for a doppelbock. Sweet, molasses like aroma, some brown sugar and a trace of alcohol in the nose as well. Flavor is sweet, some cherries, some cotton candy. Turns slightly cloying as it warms though. Decently thick mouthfeel. Holds the 8.5% ABV well.

jonnycando (16) - Troutville, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Attractively dark, malty aroma, and carmelly sweet in flavor offset with nice bitterness. Well carbonated but pours with a short lived head. Good lacing remains clinging to the glass. Pleaseant moderately long lasting finish

Aurelius (5007) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Lousy label, glowing ruby orange beer, big head. Tart, boozy raisiny aroma. Sweet, woody, medium raisin fruitiness, immediately identifiable as a bock. Slightly metallic, finishes off with a bitter, dark dried fruitiness reminiscent of dates, prunes, etc. This is becoming one of my least favorite styles, as I age, but this is a decent example. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle thanks to xproudfoot. Essentially clear orange-brown body, thin/medium cream head. Aroma of heavy toasts, brown sugar, and burnt notes; sweet. Interesting medicinal quality to the flavor, too light and sweet, also characterized by candy corn and toast, finishing with warming alcohol. I found the body too thin to carry the alcohol. However, this wasn’t half bad.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle. A amber beer with a tan head. Sweet caramel malty, rye bread aroma and taste. Medium body with a sweet dry finish. A ok Doppelbock, but not great.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle from Slob. Thanks! Pours amber-infused red wine with a slight creamy head. Wood-smoked candy in the nose. Flavor is watered-down molasses with a light, smoked caramel finish. Average mouthfeel but the flavor is spread evenly. Not bad; not molasses-heavy like most dopplebocks.
