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.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Roast malt aroma, although faint. Dark amber, crystal clear, with a light tan head. Flavor is malty and toasty, but rather mild. Good hop balance. Body is a little thin for style.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours sparkling clear copper color with a good but short lasting white head. Aroma is malty, with plums, molasses and some cola notes. Full flavored with similar characteristics, but a bitter bite toward the finish. Nicely balanced. Medium bodied and relatively smooth, but a bit prickly with moderately high carbonation. Solid beer and a strong effort at a doppelbock.

Draft at the Lancaster Arts Hotel bar...pours reddish-amber in color, minimal head...sweet malty aroma...flavor was sweet of dark fruit and toffee...substancial mouthfeel...quite enjoyable, although I’d be better off drinking this one not so soon after dinner.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2008
A heavy malty nose with a head that quickly fades. Pours a deep dark brown, with a sweet candy-caramel taste. This actually has a little bitterness at the end. This one has enough body, but lacks that fine German malt character that the big boys have, but it is top notch nonetheless for an American Double Bock

12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at room temperature. A: Pours a clear russet brown, and forms a thin tan head that quickly disappears into a cap and ring. Virtually no lacing. S: Caramel toffee malt, sweet and warm, wafts out of the glass. There’s a faint musty tone underlying the malt, a bit like a horse blanket. T: Toffee malt with a side of caramel, right out the gate, with some biscuity tones along for the ride. Sweetness is definitely a hallmark of this beer - it drinks a bit like a bread pudding. I get no fruity tones or tastes to this beer, so I am uncertain if those might come out with some age. It’s a tour de sweet malt, though! The ABV stays well hidden, even through the finish, which lingers as a spot of molasses toast. M: Creamy, sticky, and full, this is definitely a doppelbock. O: Solid indeed, for a US crack at a doppelbock. It could stand a bit more fruit character to round out the flavor profile, but overall, not bad.

Strong malt flavor, very rich. A very good doppelbock from a great Pennsylvania microbrewery.

I sampled a 12-ounce bottle. Bright, deep copper in color, and topped with a generous, creamy tan head, this beer sits beautifully in a tulip pint glass and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is all malt, saccharine and with a trace of alcohol. The bold, smooth and rich body begins with a deep and sugary palate entry that quickly builds to hazelnut, caramel and toffee flavors contributed by the double malt framework. Hop balance isn’t apparent until the finish, which is appropriately drying and ever-so-slightly spicy. Not surprisingly, owing the high ABV, there’s also a bit of alcohol warming in the finish that grows more apparent as the glass approaches room temperature.

From bottle. Pours amber with low carbonation. Tan head. Aromas of sweet dark fruit and yeast. Malty brown sugar flavor with a smooth finish.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - OCT 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Poured a dark cherrywood color with tight off white head that quickly dissipated, leaving uniform lacing. Aroma of bread and malt, heavy and sweet. Medium bodied beer, which is easy to drink, which may not be a good thing given the ABV. Bready front palate, easing into a dark fruity mid palate and finishing with sweet, roasty grain taste. Lovely for colder days and when wanting something a bit sweet without overkill.

moseslikesbeer (183) - conestoga, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2008
bottle. crack this open and smell fruity hops! little to no head but an awesome red color and lots of carbonation. first sip is very sweet and finishes bitter with a burnt taste. this stuff reminds me of TILBURG’s Ducth Brown ale but not as good.
