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.

Hops: Magnum, German Northern Brewer

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.

On tap at Max’s in Baltimore...Dark coppery-red body, with a small frothy head. The aroma is mild and malty, bready filled with yeast and a honeyed-sweetness. The flavor is also very malty, and chewy. The flavor is a little bit too thin, but its still a good, easy-to-drink beer.

In the Bottled version this was a rather decent example of the style if not a smaller one. The alcohol comes through in the nose as well as a bready Munich malt note. Wonderful color, the flavor was pleasent enough, not to complex though which is usual for this style. A rather light version on the palate but not bad at all!

The aroma is a little weak for the style, with caramel, toasted malt, cardboard, alcohol, and vanilla. The appearance is mahogany with a small head. The flavor is very nice. It has lots of caramel and nuts with light bitter finish. The palate is chewy. All I can say is wow; it’s a lot better than I expected.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2006 Dark Body with off white head. A decent doppelbock. A better doppelbock is Ayinger Celebrator.

this brew was smooth and sweet - it almost had a fruity flavor. It was very good. dark brown body and warm rich feel. this is a great winter beer.

4.4
Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2006
What a nice pour ... shiny red with a towering head that clung to the side of the glass in a desperate attempt to stay afloat. Big bready aroma. Chewy and flavorful, like a holiday cake with a bit of brandy and brown sugar, this fills you up.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Light hazelnut color with and off-white head. Nose is malty, sweet, vanilla notes, creamy, tropical fruit. Flavor is smooth, malty, simple, oaky, more vanilla notes. Nicely carbonated, smooth, a tad watery. A decent doppelbock, didn’t blow my socks off, but I enjoyed it.

RyanTHC (38) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle pours amber... again with the troegs, head dissapates quickly. cant taste the high alc% on this one until the bottom. Sweet flavor with a touch of somethin that reminds me of a kind of tart fruit... maybe black cherry or grape

3.8
IndianaRed (4628) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle pours a clear medium redish brown with a creamy thin light tan head and very nice sheeting lacing. Nice sweet brown suray and woody malts in the aroma wig\th some over ripe apples and raisons. Flavor is bold up front woody, slightly bitter lightly roasted malts. Some of the fruityness as well, and the alcohol is a player as well. Lingering slightly chalky aftertaste and a soft, fine carbonation. Thanks to Lukin013 for the trade
