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

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Pours a light brown with a thin white head. Aroma is some caramel a little bit of malt. Flavor is also a bit of caramel, but this beer is very watery, Not a whole lot going on in the palate. Thin slight malt flavors. This is 8%? Why bother? Sobriety waster.

ChainGangGuy (4400) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep, dark amber body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Lightly sweet-smelling nose of bready malts and, to a lesser degree, caramel with dark fruit notes of a nose-tingling waft of alcohol. Taste: Toasted, multi-grain bread slathered in sweetish dark caramel sauce. Raisin and plum fruitiness. Tiny bit of hop bitterness. Some unrestrained, peppery fusels roaming free throughout the taste. In the tailed, there’s a rebound of toasted malt that develops into a growing, somewhat harsh graininess that dominates the drying finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: It’s not exactly the most graceful, adroit dopplebock on the dopple block. The slightly astringent graininess in the latter half mars the overall experience.

dmac (4172) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2009
12oz bottle from EZ. Pours a thin looking orange/amber with a fizzy light beige head. Sweet aroma of raisin, grains, molassess and some honey. Thin bodied with average carbonation and a quickly fading sweet aftertaste. Flavor is similar to the aroma. This one is just an entry level beer and doesnt really try to push any boundries.
