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.

lukin013 (215) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Pours a reddish brown with a foamy tan head. Little to no carbonation. Sweet aroma of caramel and raisins. Tastes of caramel malts and molasses with a spicy finish. Could use a bigger body.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Bottle, Brickskeller. Medium dark brown color. Rich and sweet nose containing currants, cherries, nutmeg, with a slight alcohol nose along with a dominat maple scent. Toasted honey flavors, moderately thick texture, sweet, herbal flavors. Some dogfood smells though, and chewy at times, biscuity, sweet maple and brown sugar. A tasty beer but not the prototypical doppelbock.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 A bit too Sweet for my taste, but not a bad D-Bock. Available throughout Philly area. I think the $11.50 I paid for a sixer is a bit excessive though..........

Roasty caramel aroma. Fruity malty flavor that competes with the alcohol to its detriment.

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2006
At first I thought I detected staleness but it was more the bittersweet mollasse-like flavor which smacks me of raisons, caramel malts and dates in a somewhat medium texture. The alcohol isn’t well hidden and it seems to float like a liquer in this meld of flavors.

Aurelius (5214) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Lousy label, glowing ruby orange beer, big head. Tart, boozy raisiny aroma. Sweet, woody, medium raisin fruitiness, immediately identifiable as a bock. Slightly metallic, finishes off with a bitter, dark dried fruitiness reminiscent of dates, prunes, etc. This is becoming one of my least favorite styles, as I age, but this is a decent example. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours vibrant brownish red with quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma of gingerbread cookies, fruity chocolate, and berries (or sangria, with a note of alcohol). Flavor like fruitcake or rum cake: somewhat fruity but mostly basic sugars, malts and alcohol. In both nose and flavors, alcohol overpowers and masks too much. Good and pretty complex, but I’m ruined by Ayinger Celebrator - a fruity doppelbock seems strange to me.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Dark brown in color, thick head that goes away quick. Taste is sweet and bitter with alcohol at first. That subsides and leaves way with a nice rich dopple bock. Slightly under rated in my opinion. Easy drinking and refreshing, but its no aventinus. Nice one though!

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle. At the Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville, PGH. Pours dark amber with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is raisins, caramel, molasses, and a hint of lemon. Tastes of malt, caramel, and sour dough. Not bad, but I’d prefer a bigger body and a little bit of bitterness.

BeerandBlues2 (12836) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 8, 2006
12-oz. bottle from artusory. Pours deep mahagony with a small light tan frothy head that mostly dissipates. Aroma is nutty and medium roasted caramel malts (meal, cereal) with hay and straw notes. Mild bitterness and acidity, medium sweet caramel malt, finish is dry and spicy, faint alcohol notes. Medium bodied and creamy palate that ends dry and spicy.
