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.

Aspects of dark stone fruit and tobacco Taste: Sweeter malt forward with aspects of molassess, earth, black cherries and a touch of raisin Body: fuller and round Parting thoughts: a big dopplebock. I like it.

AirForceHops (6305) - 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.
