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!

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.

BMan1113VR (7786) - 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.

5000 (6023) - 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!

Thanks to fratto for sharing this bottle at bu11zeye’s 10,000th tasting. The beer pours a brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and hazelnuts, with some toffee and caramel malt also thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of toffee and caramel malt, with some nice cocoa and dry chocolate notes. There is also a little bit of brown sugar and a little bit of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
