The Defibulator is a traditional Doppelbock beer. Pale malt, munich, crystal malts and a touch of chocolate malt give this very malty bock beer a deep amber color. Toasted barley dominates with notes of caramel and toffee. There is very little hop bitterness or flavor. This deliciously smooth, full bodied lager is sure to keep you warm through the winter.

First to rate...woot! Tap at the Arlington location. Pours a dark brown color with rosy highlights as it’s held to the light. Very little head but that could be due to the pour. Faint aroma of roasted caramel, dark malts and sweet sugar. Some dark fruit aromas as well. The flavor is upfront dark malts with a big sweet ’n sour fruityness. The alcohol kick is certainly felt on the finish. Very warming indeed. Mix of chocolate and green apple on the finish. I’m not sure when this beer was brewed but it almost tastes too young. Would like the fruitiness to age out of this at some point, with an emphasis placed on the roasted notes.
