What the brewers say

“Tröegenator Double Bock pours with a bronze to brown color, fluffy white head, and bready malt aroma. It leaves a rich, warming feeling, and subtle spicy flavors. Pair it is with big beef—like grilled steaks and stews or sweet, non-chocolate desserts.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Melanoidin malt notes dominate the aroma of toast and toffee. Rich, complex malt sweetness with date-like esters at the edges. Some cardboard or sherry oxidation. Earthy spice.”

Flavor: “Full, sweet malt fills the first sip. Decent malt profile, if a bit simple. Caramel, toffee, and hints of cocoa. Some cardboard and sherry aftertaste. Hops are sufficient to just balance the malt. Moderate alcohol drives the sweet finish.”

Overall: “A great after-dinner beer. The alcohol is a little hot and the flavor not quite as fresh as it could be. Alcohol persists into the aftertaste. A little past its prime, but otherwise a simple, solid interpretation of the style. Well-executed malt profile demonstrates complexity and richness.”
