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

12 ounce bottle from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg. Pours a clear dark red color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee and dark fruits. Taste is raisins, caramel, roasted malts and anise. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. I like this quite a bit.

Bottle pours dark red/amber color with off white head. Aroma is biscuit flavor. Flavor is more biscuit with not much else. Pretty one dimensional.

nuplastikk (5742) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2009
12oz bottle. Ruby brown-amber color with a respectable head. Sweet, fresh, and malty aroma. Sweet and smooth, a pretty well-executed Dopplebock, though it lacks some of the fruity/pungent yeast nuances found in some German examples. Creamy, with a balanced bitter edge. Really covers the alcohol well. Full flavored, but completely sessionable. Good stuff, way underrated.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet doughy caramel malts and a touch of light fruit. Starts fairly full and sweet with some light carbonation and some mild bittering hop presence before a thinner, weaker finish. Could use more body and complexity, but still has good drinkability.

ApisAles (1575) - 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 (4773) - Woodstock, 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.

Draft. Pours a watery brown. Aroma is pretty light for a DB. Some hoppyness inthe finish. Ok.
