COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the strong dark lagers of Germany, Live Oak Liberator Doppelbock is brewed for the last days of winter. Liberator pours deep brown, almost black with layer upon layer of rich malt flavor. The hops are present to gently support and balance the expressive malt character. While the beer sleeps the winter away in a conditioning tank, our lager yeast continues to work to assure a very clean and dry finish.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2015
Draft. Hazy light yellow. More malt nose than hoppy. Full body with a great malt backbone and grassy hop flavor. Different but well done take on an ipa.

Ferris (13194) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Draft - Dark malts and a bit syrupy. Cloudy amber with a thin white head. Dark fruit esters and a bit of booze. Lots of fruit peel and caramelized sugars. Odd and there is a slight astringency, but the oddness makes it uniquely interesting.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On tap at Jacks. Cant believe I had never rated this one. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly malty with some strong caramel and biscuit notes as well as a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is similar. The big malt notes stand out, but they are accompanied by a bit of dark fruit, orange and grapes. I also get a bit of alcohol, but the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

kidmartinek (4755) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Rich deep amber with a copper hue. Lasting thin tan head thats pretty dense. Strong malty aroma but not sweet. Strong malty taste but well balanced by the hops. Smooth, strong, full. Good.

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Aroma of malts. Pours a dark amber with mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt forward - slightly sweet. Malts, hints of nuts and dark fruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I like it better than the first time I tried it. This Doppelbock was not as robust as some others I like from this style.

Brown and malty, not much head, only as much hops as required for it to be beer, sweet and drinkable but a little too filling to have more than a few at a time. Brown sugar but still a bit dry. A nice compliment to pretty much any bar food you'll run across. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
