This was the next beer in the sampling. It was also a darker selection. I think that this brew has one of the coolest labels I’ve seen. The figure on the label reminds me of Zeus. I was looking at buying this shirt too, but the pale ale won out.
Trivia: According to the Troegs website, “During periods of fasting without solid foods, the 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. Traditionally these brewers ended the name of their double bock with the suffix ‘ator,’ ex. Celabrator, Illuminator, Subliminator… In the spirit of the tradition we give you the Troegenator to provide warmth and richness through the early spring months. A double bock of epic proportions, beware, the Troegenator is deceiving smooth and delicious.”
Random: This is a beer that I’ve heard a lot about, but never got around to trying.
This poured with a one finger white head. The body is a caramel brown color and clear. There isn’t any visible carbonation. On the nose, there were lots of caramel, malts and even a hint of toffee. This seems like it’s going to have some complexity to it. On the taste, I get a lot of nuttiness and caramel malts. Also, some toffee as evident in the nose. The finish is quick and nutty. I just took a look at the ABV, and the booze did not make an appearance at all. Wow, this hides it really well. I’m impressed. This would make a great fall beer, as the nuttiness of it reminds me of the fall months. I would definitely have this again. I was surprised I liked this as much as I did.
