Tröegs Troegenator® Double Bock

Troegenator-Double-BockFrom the Brewer – “Troegenator Double Bock is a dark, strong lager.  It pours into a glass with a bronze to brown color, fluffy white head and bready malt aroma. The Troegenator leaves a rich, warming feeling and subtle spicy flavors. The style, Double Bock, dates back a century or so ago. 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 rich chewy body. In the spirited tradition of naming a Double Bock using the suffix “-ator,” we give you Troegenator to provide warmth and nourishment all throughout the year.

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.”

Since Troegenator is a big beer, it is perfect with big beef—like grilled steaks and stews. It can also serve as a nice compliment to sweet, non-chocolate based desserts.

Thomas Creek Deep Water Dopplebock Larger

Thomas-Creek-Deep-Water-Dopplebock-LargerFrom the Brewer – “Up The Creek is mashed in at a low temperature to increase the amount of fermentable sugars while reducing residual sweetness. This creates a hoppy behemoth of a beer with its ABV well hidden under heavy layers of malt. UTC is designed to be dangerously drinkable, so use caution or you’ll be Up The Creek!.

Food: This deliciously balanced beer with roasted cocoa tones goes particularly well with roasty foods like duck or roasted pork shanks, also cured meats.

Cheese: Pairs perfectly with a classic Limburger cheese.

Dessert: Rich toffee and chocolaty tones in the beer invoke a sweet palate pairing such as German chocolate cake, Black Forest cake and dried fruit rum tart.

Ettaler Curator Doppelbock

From the Brewer – “The nose is filled with complex notes of figs, fruitcake, port, licorice, cherry, raisin chocolate, black toffee, coffee and caramel, while it tastes deliciously thick and chewy, with great complexity showing notes of fruits, coffee-roastiness, molasses, licorice, and toffee. This beer is a meal!
