Seeyoulator DoppelbockSeeyoulator Doppelbock
Notes: Doppelbock was first brewed in Munich around 1700 by the monks of Saint Francis of Paula, to sustain them through the Lenten fast. They called their full-bodied brew “Salvator.” Today it is customary to pay homage to the good brothers by giving doppelbocks names ending in “-ator.” Our version bids a fond aufwiedersehen to tradition, charting a flight path into bold new territory. Medium amber in color, it offers a heady, estery banana aroma. Rich maltiness predominates, with cedar aging lending just a hint of spice to the finish.

Faint wood and a touch of banana on the nose over a backdrop of malt and kettle sugar aromas. It pours hazy brown tinted amber with a stiff lightly tan tinted 2” white foam cap that fairly quickly recedes. The palate starts with malty sweetness with some kettle sugars and a little chocolate in the flavor finishing with a hint of tartness and slightly astringent from the grains and wood. A luscious soft carbonation that works well with the malt to produce a creamy body and mouth feel.

It pours a dark chestnut brown. It's very opaque with an inviting, rich look. The head is initially a finger thick and look nice on top of the much darker beer, but there's little retention and before long it's gone. After a quick swirl, slight lacing presents.

The smell is very welcoming. Very malty, caramelly, with some spices and a hint of smoke.

For the style, the taste is right up there. The caramel malts take top billing, but the spice, smoke and high alcohol are very worthy supporting members and make for a nice flavor profile.

A full-bodied beer with burst of sweet and complimentary hits of various spices and some char from the cedar. No real hop presence and little to no bitterness. The spice and smokey feel balance the malty sweetness and everything is cleaned up at the end with the heat from the alcohol.

I don't care much for lagers or German malt bombs, but this was a damned good beer. It's got a lagery taste and feel but everything is spot on with sharp edges like an ale. Good stuff, great flavor and the perfect amount of alcohol. Makes for a good night sipper.

Thanks to dresden for this bottle.
Batch 2010-1 05/2011.

A - Very dark amber colour with a deep brown centre; only very slightly translucent. Two fingers of light, bubbly tan coloured head.

S - Dark caramel, brown sugar, yeast esters and a hint of cocoa.

T - Bready malts, dark caramel, brown sugar and some toffee notes combined to for a fairly sweet malt-forward base. A light cedar presence shows up in the finish but is otherwise secondary. Slightly warming ABV helps cut through the sweetness. A great flavour profile but I would have likes a little more of the cedar coming through.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Light to moderate carbonation.

Well the listing for this beer states that it is retired, but I was able to find this off of the shelf in Terra Haute Indiana. Poured into Smokestack glass. Appearance is a muddy red with minimal clarity and generous head upon pour. 2 fingers of head retain nicely, little in the way of lacing. Nose is heavy on cedar which provides quite the aroma for a beer. This pairs nicely with a malty base beer that features waves of grapes, candied fruit, and caramel. Taste starts sweet and fruity, notes reminiscent of grape Jolly Ranchers come to mind. A little bit of tartness is present as well. This malt presence is countered by a distinctly cedar flavor. The finish is dry. Mouthfeel is smooth with moderate to high carbonation. Overall, very nice and interesting brew. I like the way the cedar works in this beer and would be interested to see it used in other ways.

Review from 5/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a nice dark orange amber, with abundant carbonation and a fast fading orange head leaving lacing. The carbonation is fun to watch, but does not stay aggressive in the glass. Nice malt, fruit aroma with a hint of cedar. Very pleasant dark and light fruits, sweet malt and caramel up front, malty middle and an odd hoppy and bitter finish that was pleasant, probably from the cedar. I like this a lot. This was one of my favorite Doppelbocks; I see that it is listed as retired here and is not listed on the Boulevard website. I'm very disappointed and wish I could have stashed some of these away.

750 ml. Just picked up in Fort Wayne, not sure if they were sitting on this, or it just sat around for a year.
Pretty clear amber pour, just a minimal off white ring.

Aroma, lots of caramel covered fruit. A faint woodiness that could be called Cedar.

Taste, Not as fruity. Cooked caramel and bready malt. Almost rye or pumpernickel like. Some prune and date. A solid earthy woody presence. Finishes with toasted malt and toffee. Pretty unique.

Solid medium body, coats well. More carbonation than appeared. Only knock is that the cedar seems to accentuate the alcohol presence just a tad.

A unique take worth checking out if you see it. Probably good to share.
