Day 205 Drink: Troegenator Double Bock
Chris and John Trogner started Troegs Independent Craft Brewery in Pennsylvania in 1997. The brewery produces nine different beers on a regular basis and distributes then around the Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes regions. The company has a tasting room in Harrisburg and recently announced plans for a facility in Hershey.
Troegenator is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival. The brewery makes this beer throughout the year.
Troegenator is ruby colored with a thick white head. It has a malty aroma with a slightly toffee edge. This 8.2 percent alcohol by volume beer has a big malty flavor bed, hints of dried fruit and just a touch of roasted grain. There are a respectable level of hops that help balance things out, making this a great example of the style.
