A terrific doublebock if ever there was one. Little head, nice, full-bodied flavor, and an 8.2% ABV. I like high octane brews, but the flavor in this one truly wins out over the buzz. One of my all time faves. Riccardi50 (19) - Montreat, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2010
One of my favorite beers of all time. Its got some punch behind it due to its high amount of alchohol. The bar tender told me when I bought it that she doesn’t allow people to buy more than 2 of these in a sitting, lawl. Very, very sweet with a malty sweet finish. Flavor is fruity and sweet and tastes very good. Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2003
This is one great Doppelbock. Very malty in taste and amber in color, this is one of the best out there. lmb1958 (3) - USA - MAR 30, 2003 does not count
I did a blind taste test with Troegs and Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock (generally acknowledged to be the best Doublebock). The Troegenator won. It doesn't have the deep dark appearance of the Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock but it tastes better. So much of beer is psychological; the only way to compare beers is to do blind taste tests. Troegs makes some great beers; they don't microfilter or pasturize. Their beers are the best except for their Lager (too bland but I guess that goes with the style) and their pilsner (I like Pislner Urquell a lot more).

Words can’t describe how much I love this beer. It was an extra in a beer trade I made recently and I like it more than the beers I actually traded for. I can’t even compare it to other Bocks since this is my first besides Celebrator. Only wish it was sold in Seattle!

On vacation last week in Bloomsburg, PA I tried this beer....extremely tasty, watch out for the power it packs though...rough time standing up after a few Amber1 (32) - USA - MAY 13, 2002
This was a nice surprise from Troegs. Bronze color, malty nose and little spice. Well done.

Six pack thanks to Phil’s ponk ass! Good brew. Semi-sweet malty beverage that was more appealing than I expected. This is a really nice doublebock. It was a nice balance of carbonation and alcohol. The high abv is cloued behing the nice milk chocolate, berry yumminess that is c reated in this bottle. The apprarance was deep reddish to brown. It never left the bottle so citing the exact appearance is not wise here. Well done Toregs, well done. cwill (97) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Pours with a beautiful dark amber red color. Aroma is sweet brown candied sugar with a strong hint of maple syrup and dark fruits and malts. The taste follows the nose. The first flavor comes straight from the maple syrup notes, but the malts and plum come in after, giving it a sweet flavor that is delicious. Hints of caramel on the finish. Full bodied creamy mouth feel. 8% alcohol is nowhere to be found. Outstanding beer TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Troegenator Double Bock is brewed with Pilsner, Munich, and Chocolate malts, then hopped with both Hallertau and Saaz hop varieties. It is then largered, and comes in at a warming 8.2% abv, making it a stylistically flawless example of a classic German beer style. This beer is rich, smooth, flavorful, and warming, everything a good double bock should be.
Troegenator pours to a beautiful, bright, deep bronze color with a slight white head that fades, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with deep aromas of toasty/nutty sweet malt, slight grassy hop aroma, and some peppery alcohol. The palate is as impressive as the nose, with a sea of deep sweet malty, toasty, and nutty flavors that are just so smooth, round, and clean on the palate. Troegenator finishes with more deep malty character up front, and is balanced out to complete perfection, with just the right amount of grassy/spicy hop bitterness to give this beer sublime balance.
