COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The doppelbock style of lager came into being in Middle Ages era Bavaria in what is today southern Germany. It was originally brewed by monks to provide themselves with a liquid form of nutrition during the fasting period of Lent when no solid food was allowed. This has earned the doppelbock the nickname "liquid bread" because of its rich and filling capacity. The Thomas Hooker Doppelbock Lager blends huge amounts of imported Munich, Vienna and Moravian malts with select dark roasted malts to achieve a malt lover’s dream of a rich and creamy brew. Subtly hopped with noble German and Czech hops and cool fermented with a Bavarian lager yeast, this beer will leave you happy to give up solid food for a while. No dessert necessary.

Moyen-léger goût fruité (raisins, traces d’autres petits fruits foncés) et accompagné de faibles traces de fumée de cigarette lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel aux notes rôties et terreuses avec des traces de chocolat puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec des notes de noix ainsi que des traces de café et d’alcool.

AirForceHops (2712) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 31, 2012
12 oz. bottle from a four pack. Stamp on neck say’s 2011-11-29. So a year plus old, what a find!! Deep ruby color with thin tan head in a mug. Nose is rich malt with caramel, toffee, prunes, figs and dates. Flavor was delightful, heavy roasted malt that transitions into a nutty, bready, grain finish with the dark fruits in the finish. Notes of raisins. Slightly astringent yet very good. Full body. For being American made this is finely crafted German style Dopplebock.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Poured from a bottle received from cpetrone. Huge thanks! Pours a dark brown, nearing purple/black with a medium sized head of beige foam. The aroma is very figgy and loaded with dark fruits and molasses. Taste is sweet and fruity for the most part, but there is a nice earthy note that comes through. I can’t quite pin it down. Regardless, this is a great beer. Would love to have it again sometime.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a small, tan head. The aroma is coffee, caramel, dark fruits, and pepper. The flavor is very sweet, with a little sourness. The palate is medium, sticky and acidic. Overall, this is a sour and malty beer.

Huhzubendah (2262) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Thanks to Rob for hooking me up! TH Liberator Doppelbock pours a brown/amber color with a solid head and some decent lacing. The aromas are not particularly strong, but what is there is very inviting. Dark fruits, smoke, subtle hops, and malt are evident in the nose and throughout the taste. While I am not a huge fan of the style, I must say this beer is extremely tasty and drinkable. Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel is the only doppelbock I have had that I enjoyed more. I will certainly seek this out again. TH Liberator Doppelbock is one of the best lagers I have had in a long time.

Eructoblaster (2853) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
Bottle - 341. Dark brown body with a fair off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with oaky and brown sugar hints. Its sharp, robust hoppy taste carries fruity and woody notes. Ends with a strong, warming bitter finish. Solid Doppelbock.
