COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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!

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 (9918) - 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 (880) - 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.

BVery (5606) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bomber - thanks Bobby! Deep amber brown pour with a creamy head. Dusty chocolate aroma. Sweet caramel and earthy taste. Decent.

legion242 (2099) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Poured a not very appealing brown colour with no head. Very light on the nose and this follows into the flavours and palate.
