Rahr The Regulator ....

My beer for today is The Regulator (Doppelbock) from Rahr & Sons Brewing Company.  It is one of the limited releases from their "To Thee" series.  One pint, 6 ounce bottle.  It was listed on the Rahr site at it's release at 8.5% ABV.

This beer poured with a medium head that was tan or a little darker.  The beer color is a darker brown, with some red tint showing when you hold it up to the light.  Some light penetrates the glass.  The aroma is nice, with some definite chocolate/cocoa and hints of the higher alcohol.  The taste is more of the same - some chocolate, then the higher alcohol comes in, and a little sweetness.  Softer mouth feel.  Medium bodied.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little bitter and hints of cocoa.  This is not the most complex beer, but it has some good flavor and is one I definitely enjoyed.
