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.

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.

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.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Pours a light amber color with a small head and tiny lacing. The scent is carmel, raisins and malt. The flavor is malt, with some sweetness. The palate was a little weak and the mouthfeel was too thin for me. Not bad overall, but I would have liked a bit more complexity in the finish.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2007
12 Oz Bottle. Hay and wheat fields, robust with light fruit esters and sweet nuttiness. Reserved and somewhat plain. Pours a nice florid amber, deeper in tone, with a silky, creamed head of brazil nut flesh. Flavor is a curt, bitter presentation. With overdone dryness, parching nuts and a ragged edge of hop resins. Warming alcohols add an edge of pleasure, but there’s something just not amazing about this beer. Not distasteful, but untenable. Finishes in some old lemon clothes, spoiled with honey.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle, thanks to Blake! Poured translucent reddish-copper with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up boozy caramel, toffee, and sparkly bready notes with some floral and fruity accents.. toasted overall, and quite nice. The flavor was very sweet, with toasty caramel standing out the most.. sweet again on the latter half with herbal hoppage accenting.. a bit too sweet overall, detracting from the malty goodness. At least medium-bodied on the palate with more sweetness on the back-end.. warm and sweet on the finish. Decent.

FrancoisMtl (63) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle from zathrus13. Reddish amber colored with light beige foam that stickes to the glass. Interesting malty aroma with caramel and bready notes. Toasted and roasted flavors with some bitterness but somewhat it is lacking maltiness as I am use to in dopplebocks. This beer start strong but leave you on your appetite. I am little disapointed with its flavors. Thanks Jeff!

darkninja67 (40) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2007
12oz bottle- pours a nice reddish color. Sweet malt noted on both aroma and palate. Smooth and very drinkable. No bitterness noted. A good beer just not spectacular or complex.
