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

keepersj12 (2985) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Not much aroma was present from a muddy brown pour with a quickly diminishing head. Nice malty toasty flavor fairly well balanced. A little watery at the finish. Average at best.

obguthr (4904) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Weak fig aroma. Brown pour, murky due to the abundance of fine floaties, no head. Balance is good, but flavor is not very intense. Malty wood and grass are detectable but not obvious. Pecan finish. Alcohol not noticeable. Weak doublebock, but a decent beer.

Beerdedone (3062) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2009

TheBeerGod (5689) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle. Ruby brown with a tall, fluffy tan head. Aroma is caramel, cereal grains, spicy hops, and nuts. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, subtle nuttiness, earthy hops, light cocoa, and soft fruit. Body is light-medium and has a delicate carbonation. Leaves a pretty, spotty lacing on the glass as well. Ends with more caramel, sweet malts, earthy hops, light spicy hops and nuts. Not too bad. Sort of a sweeter American style nut brown ale.

nearbeer (4390) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2009
12 oz. Clear deep red-brown with a small ring of bubbles. Aromas of chocolate, grain and caramel apple. Flavors are the same on the front, with some coffee, raisins, earthy spiciness and light smoke on the finish. Medium body is watery and finishes nicely dry.

SpringsLicker (3289) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Pours a deep coppery amber with a good-sized, persistent, light tan head. Sweet nutty malt aroma. Rich and malty, a touch of hop bitterness at the very end just when you thought there might be none at all. Rich and smooth.Sweet & dangerous, the kind of Doppelbock that they speak of when they say "You can’t judge the strength of a good Doppelbock until you try and get up from the table."

mansquito (4478) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
Pours a light brownish color and has an off-white head that leaves a syrupy residue. Smells like caramel and a modicum of booziness. Taste is pretty smooth, with alcohol mostly concealed. Sweet and full of caramel and toffee malts. Lightly hopped but noticeable. Not to bad.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Pours deep copper toward brown with creamy, off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, toffee, hops, nuts. Tastes malty, with nuts, hops, slight spicy and peaty notes, and a rich smooth, complex palate. Give me this any time.
