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.

this beer had the distinct disadvanage to being drunk in between several stouts, but it managed to hold it's own. I liked the flavor, but in the end, ended up going back to my stouts...

A pretty good doppel by an American micro. Sweetish in both taste and aroma with some alcohol on the nose. Not a tremendously heavy body, but almost there. Good deep color.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2010 Fruity Munich malts offer cherry angles to their mild caramel apport...Carbonation is loose, making the mouthfeel juicy; the head of foam quickly dissipates to an ailing ring atop the regal mahogany...Alcohol is not apparent in the flavor profile, which is appreciated, but this has mouthfeel issues to be taken care of to become as drinkable and refined as the best authentic examples of the style...

At first I didn?t think I could finish the whole six pack as I found the doppelbock to be a hard beer to drink, I got used to it over time. Pretty harsh and heavy to drink at first for an amatuer. Not the best example of the style.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Pours a deep orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and candied apples, very bready as well. Body is super malty and sweet, mostly caramel, typical doppelbock. Alcohol is not too noticeable. Finishes sweet. Not too shabby.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2004
bottle 12 oz. Semi clear copper w small tan head that fell quick. Aroma is quite malty w alcohol and min hops. Flavor is rather sweet, creamy lt/med roasted malt that has a somewhat caramel candy flavor, also a bit like malted milk balls without the chocolate. Light hop flavor but hop bitterness is pronounced and a redeeming factor. Alcohol is noticible but masked fairly well. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - NOV 30, 2004
Dark brownish red with fairly thick head. Flavor is dominated by malts. Pretty easy to drink, above average for the style.

JFGrind (2034) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2003
Yeasty aroma, bitter flavor; overall I found this beer to have a tough yeasty (alcohol) taste.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2003
Good balance between malt and hops, but could use some work in the alcohol department. The amount of alcohol was very apparent in the flavor. Overall though for an american Doppelbock it's pretty good.

This is a well balanced brew.Malty and little alcohol taste make this a good beer.A definite buy again.
