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.

BenDover (225) - Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Pours a dark red, not much foam. Nice aroma of malts, yeasty and bready, very pleasant. Tastes a bit lighter than I expected, could be bolder. Good stuff, though.

Alpha10 (655) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
2016/10/16 - Pours a clear, deep amber colour with a thick, foamy, khaki head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet dough, caramel malt, toasted toffee, banana, molasses, hints of vanilla and dark fruits (prunes, figs and raisin). Taste follows nose, banana bread, caramel, roasted notes, molasses, prunes, figs and light booze. Mouthfeel is medium to full and sticky, with smooth carbonation and a sweet, slightly herbal finish. Sweet, full flavoured and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4438) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2016
12 oz bottle with a BB date of 2/2017. Pours with a beautiful, clear copper v=colored body topped by a durable beige head. Sheets of lacing upon tipping the glass. I often find beers of this style to be too sweet or too hot (boozy) -- this excellent version has neither of these flaws. The mouthfeel is essentially perfect to boot. Overall: excellent, world-class version of the style

ronaldtheriot (1820) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Troegenator has a thick, beige head, a hazy, caramel color, bubbles, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of strong, slightly fruity, brown bread malts, and the taste is of intense, strong bread crust, heavy malt flavor, some syrup, plum, figs, and dates. Fairly strong hop bitterness shows up, too. Mouthfeel is syrupy and rather heavy, and Troegenator falls between wet and dry. RJT

eRock_2013 (412) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Ahh a doppelbock so delicious it literally refreshes my memory of when I first discovered this style. From the bottle pours an excellent amber mohagany color, generous white head and lacing, clearly and shimmery, beautiful. Aroma of licorice caramel malt, reminiscent of sweet bourbon whiskey, and tart red fruit. Lots of hearty caramel malt in the flavor, boozy bitterness but not in an abrasive way, subtle notes of chocolate, and amaretto perhaps? Overall an excellent rendition of the style, medium bodied and easy on the palate. Well done Troeg!

books_n_brews (159) - Baltimore-ish, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Deep red pour med tan head. Smells of very lightly of yeast and fruit. Tastes thick and solid of fruit jam notes and bready. Coats the tongue. I can’t decide if I love it or hate it.

Light malty aroma, heavy malt flavor. Very heavy mouth feel, dark caramel, and stone fruit flavors with a little bitterness to finish it off.
