Notes / Commercial Description:
Bare Knuckle is a true lager brewed in the Dopplebock style. We brew Bare Knuckle smooth and rich with lots of malt flavors from three specialty German malts combined with a German pilsner base malt. Glacier hops are used sparingly for a light bittering addition. A Bohemian Lager yeast from the Weihenstephen is used for fermentation.

Pours a dark brown color with a lighter amber along the bottom of the glass. 1/4 inch head of a pale tan color. Decent retention and poor lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a Doppelbock. Mouth feel is smooth and slightly thick with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, slight yeast, and a hint of hops in the finish. Overall, a really good doppelbock with a great body, blend, and drinkability.

Draught: The beer is a opaque brown, with some tan head. Serious malt taste and nose. I also get some fruit notes to the nose, of which cherries appear to be the most evident. The taste has some evidence of the cherries as well as a hint of roastiness. Served only in a 10oz. glass. I suspect the alchohol content is quite high, but it isn't noticeable.
