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.

From tap at Jacob Wirth. Pours hazy dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malty, slight breadish and mild caramelish. Roasted malty flavoured, slight sweetness and with a solid level of bitterness coming through. Ends dry and bitter, dark roasted malty into the finish.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle at Chriso’ Blue Mountains of Virginia tasting. Some syrup. Not a great double bock. Some syrup and milk choc flavours. Dryness on finish. It’s ok, but not the greatest

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours a clear ruby tinted color with a slight off-white head. Aroma is sweet and darkly fruity. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is not very sweet, a little grapey, and a fair amount hoppy. Finishes towards astringent and dry, but doesn’t quite get there. Pretty tasteful brew. Oh. There is malt through out, and it is nicely roasted. It just isn’t so dominant as in many doppelbocks.
