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!

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, 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 (1107) - 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.

legion242 (2343) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle thanks to Fratto. Pours with a clear, deep bronze hued body with a small off-white head. Aromas are nutty, malty, herbal hops, light caramel and munich. Toasty. Flavors are malty, nutty, molasses with a slightly distracting spicy hop character. Clean yeast wise. Medium bubbles, medium bodied, not overly sweet.

On tap at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium beige head. The aroma is cinnamon and spice. Thin mouthfeel with raisin malt and roast with lingering spice finish. A good doppelbock from Rahr.

On tap at Oak St. Draft House. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, and some cocoa. Taste is very much the same with some bitterness coming through in the end. Pretty good.
