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.

hayduke (3380) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
From the bottle share at Dark Lord Day 2014. Into my tasting glass this went rich brown with a light tan had. Nose of roasted malts, some fruit, obvious nuts and floral hops. Medium to bold in body with a smooth creamy mouth feel. Flavor is rich and the roasted malts with the nuts make this very delicious. Light bitter finish. Solid beer.
