Monks had fasting figured out. No food? No problem. Just drink a Double Bock. Thick and chewy with intense notes of caramel, chocolate and dried stone fruit, ‘Nator (as we call him) serves as a tribute to this liquid bread style.

Thin head, no lacing to speak of. Nose is caramel malt and stone fruit, taste follows. Medium mouth feel, smooth and creamy. Consistent and delicious, just sweet enough!

Not too bitter, maybe a little sweet, lots of fig/date vibes, very enjoyable. Deep brown,amber color, minimal head, if fog newtons were a beer... Nice to sip while reading, not very distracting, but like oh, hi, right, you taste good.

Good malt flavor. Not too sweet. Holds it's own against it's German competition. One of my go to Doppelbocks. Great beer overall.

Pours reddish-brown. Clear. Small head turns to a ring. No lacing. The nose is beautiful - sweet, fruity, like a Belgian ale. Taste follows with caramel and dates. Medium body, low carbonation. Fantastic - one of very few brews that I keep going back to.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a medium to dark reddish orange with a quarter finger light khaki head that dissipates to a thin cap with light lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, dates, dry caramel and vanilla, interesting. Flavor is biscuit and dry caramel malt, dates, pumpernickel bread, toffee, raisins and a hint of vanilla; finishes drier with a mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light to moderate creaminess. A pleasant doppelbock that finishes a little drier than the continental ones. The basic malt is classic doppelbock, perhaps a bit less sweet and an interesting rye-like drier finish. I'm glad to have such a pleasant introduction to this legendary brewery. Wish there were more doppelbocks on the market.

Malty background yes, but not overwhelmingly so. Forward sweetness. Not recommended on an empty stomach.

This is my go-to beer year round when I'm not looking to try anything new. Its just the perfect all around beer for my taste, and it doesn't take too many to get the job done. Consistent quality, however if you happen to catch some Troegenator's while they're fresh, definitely do it.
