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

The Dan Journal #447. Tasted 2/26/11. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Trace off-white ring of head. Aromas of bready malts. Medium bodied and malt dominant. Peppery and bitter but still rather mild. Meh...

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.

From a draft pour at the Cape Ann brewpub. Pours a clear ruby color with an off-white head and light lacing. Nose is caramel malts and dark ripe fruit. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is a good balance of malts and hops. Fish is dry and biter. Very easy drinking and enjoyable.

Cape Ann Fisherman’s Navigator pours a nice amber. The aroma is a bready chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter with a chocolatey aftertaste. Seems a little chalky on the finish.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2011
A- Body is a slightly murky uniformly translucent brown hue. Pours with no head. S- Milk chocolate, caramel, alcohol astringency, molasses. Nose is much more sweet than boozy-but both are there. T-Taste is pretty bland initially, a hint of cheap milk chocolate and a hint of alcohol-and well, thats pretty much it. A hint of caramel sweetness comes through in the middle with more mild alcohol. The finish is fairly clean and dry with the slightest hint of alcohol-a mild chocolate presence lingers. M- Medium to high carbonation and medium weight, thin, somewhat watery body. D- This brew fits the bill for dopplebock-but its a pretty mediocre one-and an above average brew overall. The alcohol isnt powerful in this brew-it just stands out because there isnt much flavor there. Still cool to try this local. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-11-2010 03:55:38
