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. Malty aroma of molasses, figs in syrup, caramelized sugar, walnut bread, and a bit of milk chocolate. Exciting and rich ó 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 thatís 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 ó I expected worse.

Tap at the brewery anniversary party. Pours a lightly hazy reddish brown color. Aroma is dark fruits, sweet notes, fruity yeast and some brown sugar. Flavor is much the same, leaving a small bitterness on the finish. I like this.

Well, this is certainly a malty, sweet brew, and filling. A darker, but clear type brew, with a quickly disappearing head. Aromas are super sweet and malty. Stewed fruits, whiskey, rasberry pancake syrup. Some mild, roasty malt warmth. Absolutely no hops spiciness. Taste is heavy and sweet, with just a hint of sour notes on the finish. The 8.5% abv is very noted at only 2/3 of the 22oz bottle finished..... Goes down pretty smooth, but the sweetness lingers a bit too much. Good brew, but not my style these days....

Better than expected. Malty and syrup aroma. It smelled like it would taste sweet. Dark brown sugar appearance with a cloudiness. Weighty palate with a soft texture. Up front mildly sweet maltiness turned to a roasted grain and molasses character. Hops were minimal but it worked. Pleasantly surprised.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, brown in color, with an off white head. The smell is malts, dusty, caramel, burnt, and wheat. The taste is sweet, malts, caramel, and sticky.

Bottle. Chocolate, dark fruits, malty goodness. Nice. Just a hint of roastiness, but a lot of sweetness w/o being cloying.

A very straightfoward simple pleasant tasting hearty beer. I enjoy leinies creamy dark, but this one seems to have more kick to it so I like it better. I agree w/ some folks here that its not quite like the real classy (and more expensive) dopplebocks, but Iím kind of glad of that cause Iím really looking for something a little less overwhelming. Its really pleasant and hearty without being too hopsy or bitter.

Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.
