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

harrisoni (16735) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle at Chriso’ Blue Mountains of Virginia tasting. Some syrup. Not a great double bock. Some syrup and milk choc flavours. Dryness on finish. It’s ok, but not the greatest

bhensonb (13622) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours a clear ruby tinted color with a slight off-white head. Aroma is sweet and darkly fruity. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is not very sweet, a little grapey, and a fair amount hoppy. Finishes towards astringent and dry, but doesn’t quite get there. Pretty tasteful brew. Oh. There is malt through out, and it is nicely roasted. It just isn’t so dominant as in many doppelbocks.
