COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter seasonal, the Fisherman’s Navigator is a German-style doppel-bock of exceptional quality, flavors and body. With a toasty biscuit-like malt backbone, it’s unlike any beer you’ve had while managing to remain strictly within a centuries old style.

This years Doppelbock style lager has no spices as it did last year but offers a spectacular mouthful of flavor. EXCEPTIONAL!! Ready Nov 1st

Translucent amber color, little head, thick, and no aroma. Flavor is a huge thick malty prune-like flavor, very wintery, chewy, and slightly smoky. This is a lot bigger than i expected, and seems to actually make me more thirsty than i was before drinking it.

gpekar (476) - Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Poured a lightly hazy orangish copper with a tall creamy light tan head. There were some carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The aroma was a bready caramel with some dark stone fruit and a hint of orange. The beer had a thicker texture and a good flavor of caramel/toffee along with a nice alcohol warmth. There was a good bit of sweetness to balance the alcohol. There was a little bitterness on the finish, but it mellowed out fairly quickly with a good alcohol warmth lingering. Very nice.
