    Saw this at HEB Burleson for like 6 bucks, but still couldn't pull the trigger. Just doesn't sound that good to me

    It doesn't say dobblebock, but we are all aware of the tradition of naming dopplebocks with the "ator" suffix. No it's not really a dobblebock, but at least passes for a substantial bock. I guess if you call Shiner bock a "bock", then 100 commemorator is, in a sense, comparatively a dopplebock (if that makes any sense).

    Sure do, i think about once a year here in Austin. And Jason McMasters(lead singer) also has a band called Broken Teeth, who are playing with Great White, i think the saturday or sunday before New Years.
