The Regulators were a deputized posse, persistent and strong. They were formed to counter what was belived to have been a corrupt sheriff. The Regulators were resilient, relentless individuals who rode hard across the plains. It is in this vision that we created our doppelbock, a brawnier version of the traditional bock, that was first brewed in Munich by the Paulaner monks. Our doppelbock has a large, creamy, persistent head with intense malty flavors and aromas with little hop presence. So saddle up and ride with the Regulator!

Clear dark ruby with quickly dissapearing foam head. Aroma is bit weak. Taste is bit sparkling, bittersweet. Aftertaste is nice long lasting turning nice bitter with some nutty taste. (Houston 201303)

AndresTM (372) - Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle. Malty aroma of molasses, figs in syrup, caramelized sugar, walnut bread, and a bit of milk chocolate. Exciting and rich — pop the cap, and the sweet aromatics permeate the air around it immediately . The taste is lighter than the aroma, with some sweetness, followed by a tinge of bitterness and alcohol, and a finish that’s a little on the dry side. The mouthfeel is medium-thick, with soft carbonation that becomes lathery on the back of your tongue. I liked it quite a bit — I expected worse.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Tap at Mellow Mushroom, Spring. Pours an average brown with a nose of caralized leaves, bready molasses, and ligh strawberry. Flavor is crispy leaves and caramel on molasses bread. Average mouthfeel. This beer aims for average and hits the target.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle:   Deep caramel, thin frothy off-white head, little lacing.   Nutty whole wheat bready aroma.   A little toffee and caramel as well.   Soft sweet nutty start, a bit bready but not too heavy, slightly mealy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   For a Doppelbock its a little light.   Finishes not too heavy, mealy, bready in a whole wheat sense, but at least its clean.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

BelgianBeerGal (3457) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Draft. No clue what I was ordering other than it was a new Rahr listed on the Flying Saucer chalkboard. Fine doppelbock, rich malt flavors and full mouthfeel. Nice.

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Amber in color with a small khaki colored head. Nose is the fairly standard sweet malt mixed with toast and cola. A bit of yeast, dark fruit, and a very mild roastiness. Nothing really extraordinary. Good flavor, but not amazing. Bread, toasted malt, and a hint of cola and dark fruit. There is some mild roast and yeast notes. Just an okay doppelbock.

SPDickerman (1075) - Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pours dark ruby mahogany with a small light tan head. Smells a bit like chocolate bread with some subtle caramel notes. Taste is a bit like chocolate and a bit like caramel with some bread-like flavors: yeasty, a bit of grain. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Rahr & Sons The Regulator finishes with a bread-like dryness, the kind that makes you want a drink of water, or to put butter on the bread itself.
