COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extremely rich and malty German-style lager, so intense that it’s named after our founder! Karminator Doppelbock has a traditional double-bock flavor, brewed with an over-abundance of the absolute highest quality imported Munich malt to create an irresistible toasted barley flavor, with hints of caramel & toffee. Alot of care, time, and know-how has gone into creating this complex, memorable, and majestic lager.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone, die aber schnell verschwindet. Geruch sehr malzig, fruchtig süß, alkoholisch. Geschmack sehr süß malzig, überreife Früchte, alkoholisch. Starker und süßer Doppelbock.

Bottle from the Hoppin Frog Brewery. Shared with Peter and Gail. Solid deep brown pour with an ample two-finger head. Solid lacing. Deep aroma of heavy malts, roasted nuts, toffee, and serious caramel. I thought I’d have to chew this beer before drinking. The taste was also heavy malts, roasted nuts, serious heavy breads, and caramel. Very complex beer with a finish of heavy malts. Thick, full body. Wonderful for the style.

RasmusOtt (962) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2014
Pours dark amber wth a tiny head. Aroma is really sweet with notes of caramel, port notes, alot of sweet ripe fruits, toffee, toasted malts, sugary, sweet malts, candy notes and some butterscotch. Taste of sweet toasted caramel malts, caramel, toffee, sweet plums and other ripe fruits in there. ALso some butterscotch. A bit too sweet for me I must say.

ryecatcher (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bomber. Pours a deep brown, smallish white head, so-so retention and not much lacing. Nose is malty, lots of dried fruit (dates, raisins and figs) brown sugar, pumpernickel toast. Mouth is full bodied malt-forward and kinda sticky, chewy with big toffee, more of the dried fruit in the nose and toasted bread crusts, hints of molasses, maple. Malt forward eases into the malt backwards too, and a lingering finish. Let those brutal north winds blow, as Chicago dips down into the well-below-zero-range again (Chi-beria redux)... cuz this tasty dopplebock from the Buckeye State is as an apt antifreeze as any. Ribbit.

Sotet rezvoros szine van, habja vekony es pillanatok alatt eltunik. Illata mega karamellas, gumicukros, nagyon edes. Ize egetett cukor, aszalt gyumi, sok edesseg, kicsit gejl, gyerekkori elmenyek... suru es szirupos, alig bubis. Utoize edes, karamellas, gyerekes. Cukorbetegek keruljek!

0,65 l bottle, courtesy of Ogreface.
Deep brown-ruby appearance with a small creamy tan head. So, this beer is sweet. Both in aroma and flavor. Honey, caramel and molasses, some herbs, honey and molasses, caramel and molasses, honey and malt, caramel and honeay, molasses. Not my style, not my beer, too sweet for me but not bad according to the style.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark reddish pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, nice oaky, spice notes, slight vanilla, earth, slight honey as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, lots of rich caramel, toffee, almost sherry like notes into some vanilla, honey, slight earthy, spicy notes, finishing very sweet. This is a very tasty, but all malt forward brew.
