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.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a light brown caramel color. Too clear right off the bat. Too light in color & body also. Thin mouthfeel for a dopplebock. Very thin indeed. Aromas are of butterscotch, toffee, and alcohol. No hops in the aromas or flavors. Burning alcohol, and too much diacetyl for the style. Not the best dopplebock I ever had. Needs work, guys.

Too sweet for my taste but that is doppelbock. Nice sweet malty taste with OK aftertaste. Not my style but would buy again.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Clear, magnifying caramel brown in color with a fizzy, quarter inch tan head. Aroma is fairly by the book, with honeyed pecans, caramel, maple, cedar smoothness, sugary pralines and hay barrels. Kellogg’s Corn Pops and soiled sheets sneak up on the backend of the nose and are unshakeable now that they’ve been identified. Laid back flavor. Light chocolate and caramel malts futilely assert themselves but it’s as if they’ve been diluted with seltzer water – both in terms of taste and effervescence. Sugary sweetness on the roof of the mouth is akin to Rolos, but it never comes to fruition on the taste buds. Medium-bodied, sweet and rapidly diffusing on the palate. Carbonation is too active, finishing like grainy sweet bread, then caramel cola and ultimately bubblegum. Nevertheless, happy to have had a new doppelbock. Thanks for the bottle, Thaichile.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle purchased at Mom’s Apple Pie Co. somewhere in Va. on my way home from BCTC. Was originally going to be for my secret santa but he had already rated it, so now I drink it. Thought I had rated this too, so it’s a nice surprise. Pours a cherry-red amber with a thin head that fades fast. Aroma is very malty but little else going on. Flavor is similar, very malty, a bit of alcohol, but nothing really distinguishable. A bit of honey, biscuit, and hops in the finish. This beer really doesn’t do much for me. Doubt I’ll finish the whole bomber.

kseecs16 (1192) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin light tan head no lacing. Aroma is malty and nutty which translates to the tongue in a dry,, nutty malt doppelbock. Some sweetness evident, but fairly bland and grainy in character. A bit light and crisp for a doppel. Lacks the richness and depth that defines a good doppelbock.

jport4087 (178) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Poured a deep red with a creamy off-white head that left a huge amount of lace. Sweet aroma with caramel and even some chocolate and coffee in the nose. Not a huge fan of this style. The warm alcohol kick does shine through.

Fratto (2590) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Brownish red pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is a little alcohol, kinda bready, and sweet. Taste is lots of dark fruit, sweet, and licorice.
