Big sweet caramel bomb as I remember the non-BA version being, but with big alcohol notes, wood, and bourbon thrown into the mix just for kicks. Very nicely done, boys!

deep brown color, no head. fruity aroma with a bit of hops. perhaps a touch of bourbon in the taste, but mostly warm alcoholic fruitiness. a full-bodied brew. not the best i’ve had today, but an interesting effort none-the-less.

On tap at Flossmoor Station and served in a snifter. This beer poured a dark mahogany color with a thin head of light tan foam that quickly receded. Not much lace. The aroma of the beer was made up of mild bourbon, ripe fruit, and some toasted caramel. The flavor included sweet bourbon, caramel, and also a bit of dry fruitiness. The mouthfeel was full-bodied with light carbonation. Decent, but outshined by some of their other great barrel-aged offerings.

Draft Goblet at Flossmoor. I get a totally different beast than my memory of the original Social Lubricator. A light alcohol smell with lightly soured raspberry overtones. Reddish black with a finger of stoutish foam. Taste is more of an oaked red wine than bourbon. Dry taste takes over much of the doppelbock’s character. A touch of yeast. Alcohol is apparent without being overbearing. Slight char and oak toward the finish. Light and smoth for a BA beer.

I hope the Station puts this one on tap again so I can have a larger sample. It was also one that I had near the end of the festival.... It poured a headless mahogany body, softly highlighted in ruby. Bourbon, dark malts, dried stone fruits, and oak make up the sweet aroma. A bit thin, but smooth to drink. A light woody bitterness cut into some of the style’s natural sweetness, making this a drinkable, warming Winter brew. Nice.

FoBAB 2007. Only the second barrel aged doppelbock I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying. A still rudy red brown with no head. Oaky. A bit fruity. Round subtle malt. Low key. Small clean toast. Thin body with low carbonation. Tannic oaky, low malt. The wood really shines. Small toast. Noticable hops. Some alcohol. This one is pretty heavy on the tannins, and I’m comparing this to some really woody monsters I’ve had today! Long dry finish.
