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.

AirForceHops (5876) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle purchased at One Stop Market, Haverhill. Deep garnet brown color, no head. Aroma is molasses, raisins, prunes.

Flavor is a copy of the aroma.This is pretty much spot on a German example with a higher elevated alcohol level. Fuller body with a sticky texture over the palate. Of course this is sweet, such is the style. I think this very well crafted.

onceblind (6741) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2016
Woody brown hue with a thin light beige head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Very interesting nose of a perfumey citrus and boozy toffee malt, a kiss of bubblegum, a light kiss of chocolate. Full and boozy malty flavor with a light kiss of bubblegum and floral citrus, a nice complex body and flavor so layered it’s hard to dissect. There’s honey and floral hops and toffee and bock malt and light toast and something slightly perfumey.
