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.

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 (6322) - Chicago, Illinois, 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.

Bomber thanks to Dan. Pours a deep caramel color with a small white head, goes down to nothing. A big nose of Munich and toffee. The flavor is caramel, floral hops, some sweet banana esters, maybe a bit of blueberry. Quite fruity. A nice Bock.

Huge maltiness, caramel, choco, dark fruits, bread. Decent hops, bit alco. Quite smooth. Sweet all the time, thou not oversweetened. Very decent and enjoyable, but nothing special about this one. Bit boring

Pours brown with almost no foam. Smells weird. Tastes intense with some spices. Not so well balances beer. Can feel alchohol.
