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

Bottle from SL, no where else, baby! Pour is dark brown with some head. The Cowboys SUCK! The aroma is bubblegum, roast, chocolate. The flavor is roast, chocolate, black patent malt, licorice, nice stuff. The mouthfeel is full, some carbonation, very well done doppelbock! Mouthfeel is big and carbonated. Good stuff!

nuplastikk (4708) - 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.

12 oz bottle served in a clear pint glass. Pour was muddy brown with an inch of quickly dissipating tan head. Nose is yeast, malt, earth, and caramel. Taste is right on par, however there is an odd metallic taste that appears and lingers throughout the finish. I really enjoyed this brew and was pleasantly surprised. If not for the metallic finish, I would rated this higher and consider putting this on tap in my home. Excellent dopplebock!

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Pours a deep coppery amber with a good-sized, persistent, light tan head. Sweet nutty malt aroma. Rich and malty, a touch of hop bitterness at the very end just when you thought there might be none at all. Rich and smooth.Sweet & dangerous, the kind of Doppelbock that they speak of when they say "You can’t judge the strength of a good Doppelbock until you try and get up from the table."

gpekar (470) - Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Poured a lightly hazy orangish copper with a tall creamy light tan head. There were some carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The aroma was a bready caramel with some dark stone fruit and a hint of orange. The beer had a thicker texture and a good flavor of caramel/toffee along with a nice alcohol warmth. There was a good bit of sweetness to balance the alcohol. There was a little bitterness on the finish, but it mellowed out fairly quickly with a good alcohol warmth lingering. Very nice.
