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.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
Raisins, plums, caramel and cardboard in the aroma. Stale? Deep copper with shy off-white head that recedes to light cover. Marginal sudsy lace. Very earthy with subdued fruit. Burnt caramel, toffee. Medium body. Low carbonation. Fairly straight forward and simple and felt somehow stale. Bottle (Sample at Mondial 2004).

jercraigs (10093) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2011 2011-08-10. Very dark brown body wiht a small beige head. 3+ Malty, sugary character, fruity. 7+ Aroma is sweet and fruity, bit alcoholic. 6+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Decent. 7/4/7/3/14 On tap at Goodbar, Buffalo

2004-06-XX. Bottle. Dark red amber with a smallish off white head. Bit of stale cardboard in the aroma indicates that this may not be the freshest bottle around. Flavour has some nice sweet malt and some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Disappointingly restrained doppelbock. Giving it the benefit of the doubt, it may be better on a different day. Hides the alcohol content quite well. Mondial 3T (Radek). 4/3/5/3/12

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a bright amber color with a big slightly off-white head. Smokey aroma that enveloped a slightly hidden sweet. When I tasted it, I did not know what the ABV was, and I’m surprised to see it’s 8.2% for the way it tasted. A nice sweet malt beginning with a biscuity followup and a smooth, smokey finish. Goes down smooth and hides the alcohol well.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2004
Orange-amber clear body, thin off-white head. Aroma of cedar wood smokiness, wet soil, sand, peat malt. No alcohol is noticeable to me, but were there some, it’d feel pretty whiskey-ish. Palate is lightly tart, very earthy with more smoke and peat malt stuff going on, but not much flavor developments. Sand undertones, mild bitterness. A rather quaffable example without much complexity and a airy medium body.

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2010 Fruity Munich malts offer cherry angles to their mild caramel apport...Carbonation is loose, making the mouthfeel juicy; the head of foam quickly dissipates to an ailing ring atop the regal mahogany...Alcohol is not apparent in the flavor profile, which is appreciated, but this has mouthfeel issues to be taken care of to become as drinkable and refined as the best authentic examples of the style...

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2004
A pretty good doppel by an American micro. Sweetish in both taste and aroma with some alcohol on the nose. Not a tremendously heavy body, but almost there. Good deep color.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2004
This beer pours a medium to dark amber color with small but lasting head. Very sweet, but mostly what would be expected with a desert beer. The body is not quite as thick as would be desired.

haddon90 (1630) - Newport Beach, California, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Cloudy deep amber color with a lasting head. Malty aroma. A hint of caramel as well. Smooth taste. Very impressive. Some hops linger, earthy and light at the same time. A definite must try. Good finish as well. Bought this 12 oz bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, VA.

muzzlehatch (4904) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2004
12 oz bottle. Clear medium amber, smallish lasting creamy head. Malty, slightly banana-infused nose; very smooth, light, earthy...rather weak and light for a doppel; bitter, slightly sour finish. Just ok.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2004
eep red color, lightly carbonated, syrupy full mouth coating body. good malt taste, complementing yet submissive hop bitterness. Not one to turn down.
