3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
