Westbrook Brewing Co. Low and Slow Doppelbock

Westbrook Brewing Co. Low and Slow Doppelbock, 8.2% ABV part of their Low and Slow series, it’s lagered in oak barrels, brewed with CTZ, Hallertau, Mittelfruh Hops, German Lager Yeast, Black, Caramuinch, Munich, and Pils malts. Then it’s lagered for four months in natural oak barrels. Doppelbock pours a deep mahogany brown and a two-finger beige head with sweet malty notes that a slightly alcoholic. Then you find yourself at a rich malty sweet taste with some boozy notes with a nice complexity that comes together with a sweet malty-rich finish and has a nice sweet slightly sticky aftertaste with a full mouthfeel. This beer would go great with grilled or barbecued meats but I find Westbrook Brewing Co. Low and Slow Doppelbock to be an interesting take on a Doppelbock with its the oak barrel lagering, and it’s a B+ beer. The oak barrel does add a nice complexity and gives the flavors a sharper taste on your tongue and really gives you a sense of the higher 8.2% ABV. I did enjoy this big beer and I recommend that you check it out! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
