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!

Its good. Don’t confuse this with a doppelweizen like I did, its a doppelbock and it kicks ass. Its a murky, plum-tinted brown color with a leathery off-white head. The aroma is very malty but not sweet. In other words, its good; "not sweet" being the key phrase there. The flavor has a good bite and malty but not sweet taste but the finish is unfortunatley a little syrupy. Nevertheless this beer doesn’t suck like you might expect it to. Why you may ask... the advertised lack of hops. I didn’t notice. I think they put a lot of hops in it.

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.

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.

Rated in April 2012 (Backlog) - Amber in color with a small beige head. Aroma is of tabacco, light roasted malts, caramel, and spicy hop notes. Taste is of malt, tabacco and caramel.

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.

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.

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

Golden brown. Aroma is caramel, toffee, taste is similar. Ok doppelbock, with some light chewy, bready notes but nothing like the ones from the outskirts of Munich.
