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.

Bottle dated 09.09.09. From my trade with MrBunn. I’ve decided that despite their high abv, doppelbocks probably should be laid to age too long. This one was fine, but some yeast has settled out and autolyzed, I think. Still, a big malty nose starts under the cap and doesn’t let up. Deep brown color. Taste is full of malts. As I suggested, this may have some dead yeast, which you can make work with you on a beer like this. Notes of clove too. Overall, a pleasant experience to drink. Hmm, no sediment on the bottom, so part of my opinion goes out the window. This wouldn’t stop me from ever having one again.

A fantastic doublebock, my favorite offering from Troegs. Beautiful reddish brown - call it mahogany, dark amber, whatever, it’s pretty. Light tan or beige head, creamy and medium-bodied. Packs a nice ABV punch. Mildly sweet with molasses and caramel overtones. Pleasant long finish.

Pours rich mahogany with a small tan head. Smells bready, caramel, and hints of earthy hops. Taste is sweet, caramel, hints of spice, bread. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Tröegs Troegenator Doublebock finishes with a lingering sweetness.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark, reddish amber. Thin tan head. Malty, caramel aroma. Initial sweetness that finishes with a good bit of spice. Certainly bready but somewhat oily.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
appearance; rich amber in color. lightly carbonated, pours with a little head fading to just a ring around glass clear aroma: smells of malts and toffee, warming alcohol can be smelled also taste tastes of sweet malt and warming alcohol notes at end. mouthfeel: thick full body beer that’s smooth. Warming alcohol taste at end. drinkability: good beer but not too many at one time because of the high alcohol content. notes could use a liitle bit more carbonation. this also is a good beer for cellaring.

Quite simply, this brew is delicious in all the ways a beer can be judged. Pricey, but worth every cent.
