Defibrillator takes the traditional German Weizen Doppelbock and ages it on American Bourbon barrel oak for that quintessential Doctor’s Orders twist. The culmination of the weizen yeast, chocolate malt and bourbon oak present a complex layered aroma that gets your palette and taste buds ready for action. On the lips the initial hint of sweetness draws you in before the multi-dimensional layering of Defibrillator grabs hold of your taste buds and gives them a good shakeup before the bourbon oak nuances provide a satisfying warming sensation as it travels to your “heart” defibrillating it.

A flavoursome, complex infusion of malt, chocolate, yeast and oak with a hint of bourbon makes this a wonderfully fulfilling brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at BeerDeLuxe. Nice mix of flavours. Aromas of cola, caramel, and green apple. Taste is sweet and sour, with average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a thin head.
