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

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.

The Navigator is deep red in color and cloudy. Bottled versions may not be cloudy, but all of their drafts are unfiltered. The aroma is mostly of malts and hops. The beer hits you with rich chocolate and cinnamon flavors at first but then the hops take over for a slightly bitter aftertaste. Alcohol isn’t overtly present. With the medium body, the beer goes down smooth and doesn’t overload on the carbonation. This is a fine beer if you can find it.

Had a draft. Appearance was a dark red color with a aroma of toasted grain and cinnamon spice. Taste was of creamy malts followed by sweet caramel.

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2008
Draught at Jacob Wirth’s. Pours dark with a tan head. Much of the same nutty, roasty character that you expect from a bock, problem being there’s little body here. It’s a rather unsatisfying, almost watery beer.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Poured light tan/yellow and had a large head. It had some nice notes of molasses and caramel and then pushed into a well balanced earthy and sweet (think fruit) flavors with a firm finish.
