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.

Cool name, although not very impressive for a doppelbock. Lacked a substantial strong malt background. Don’t get me wrong it’s decent, but its nothing to rave about.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2003
Clear caramel color with minimal head and a flowery, yet malty aroma. A little thin in body considering the style and abv. Some roasty and nutty qualities, nice and dry, mild hop character. Not bad, but not great.

argo0 (11666) - Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2003
Clear garnet with minimal tan head. Aroma is caramel, cola, some spiciness. Taste is cola/caramel and earthy bitter, with some spiciness. Decent body, and the alcohol is well masked. Improves considerably as it warms.

joet (2228) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 26, 2003
lots of earth in the aroma, some dusty hops, a little oxidization, not so gentle age, some washed carmels

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Poured a clear reddish hued amber with a thin quickly disappearing off white head. Fruity aroma of oranges, peach, and grape. Also notes of caramel and alcohol. Flavors of lightly sweet malt that quickly turns to a long lasting almost unpleasant bitterness. Body feels almost thick at first sip but then thins quickly.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Draft at Sippin by the River ’05. Another beer that I have been meaning to rate: nice example of the style, but nothing over the top. Compararble to many other dbs that are out there.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Medium orange-bronze color with a full, creamy head. Could not successfully coax out much aroma. Mild malt flavor deftly masks the potent alcohol.

Ernest (6356) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Bottle. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel, molasses), with note of plum. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, trace/lightly acidic, trace bitterness. Finish is moderately sweet, trace/lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pleasant, straightforward.

notalush (5006) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Dark copper pour with impressive white lace - rather light, bready aroma, with some caramel and fruity esters, mostly of cherry - a bit thin-bodied and lacking the malt complexity one would expect from this style - a little honey sweetness and a light spicy quality - decent, but not something I’d seek out again.
