The Myth of Permanence 007: Doppelbock

Doppelbock 8.5%

The seventh in a monthly series of limited-releases showcasing various lager styles and, of course, meditating on the transience of all things. This month we worked with our friends at The Harbord House to create a little taste of Germany that would perfectly pair with their signature house burger. And our doppelbock was born! This full bodied 8.5% lager pours a magnificent deep ruby colour, as aromas of dates, plums and caramel flow out of the can. Our doppelbock has notes of bread crusts and raisins, complimented by just enough bitterness to finish off with a dry, lingering caramel. There is only a limited quantity so, while you might want this beer to stick around forever, it won’t.
