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

Draft @ Cape Ann. Served year round since it’s July and I just drank it a few hours ago. Light amber color with thin head in a shaker glass. Aroma is caramel malt, toasted grain and light lager yeast.

Flavor is again toasted grain, caramel malt, mild hints of fruit and light brown sugar. The carbonation gives a creamy texture that ends sweet. All malt in this brew, as it should be. For the style is just above average and I’m glad the spice was taking away from the recipe several years back. It is a nice, straight forward example of the style and not overly complex. German lager loves will not get to excited but it should do you just fine if you like this style.

Pours a hazy garnet color with a minimal beige head. Sweet toasted malt aroma has notes of agave syrup. Soft toasted malt flavor has a touch of caramel and vanilla bean. Slightly spicy with a hint of cinnamon on the palate. Overall, just average.

Not a giant fan of this one. Tastes slightly burnt, whether a burned candy or even butter. Medium bodied with a decent head.

GCB Draught. This is really cloying and heavy beyond what i am used to for the style.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2013
3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber red pour with a small khaki head. The aroma shows dates and dark fruits, but mostly caramel and biscuit from the malts. Malty flavor as well, plenty of caramel and biscuit, touches of fruitiness. Not bad.

Pours a clear medium to dark brown with a thin head. Aroma is like a nut brown. Flavor is pretty strong alcohol and roasted malts.

Evolutionary (271) - Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle from beer of the month club. Toasty smell and decent color. Roasted malt taste and little to no hoppiness. Medium mouthfeel. An average dopplebock brew. Would drink again but there's better ones out there. ---Rated via my mouth

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Faint brown sugar aroma, not what’s expected. Ruby red color, fairly still. Taste of roasted grains and caramel. Not heavy or even cloying. Doppels are either light lager or darker dunkel in body and character. This one is the former. Needs more malt for the style, or more hops to make it something else.
