Lucubrator Dopplebock – Occidental Brewing Co

O’hare’s Beer Club April 2014 Box

From Portland Oregon’s Occidental Brewing Company comes their “Lucubrator Dopplebock”.  The beer pours a dark amber/brown colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of dark fruits, brown sugar and bourbon.  The flavour is of dark fruits, brown sugar, spice, vanilla, bourbon, very roasty malts and some mild hops to finish it off.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.8% with an IBU of 20.  This is a well crafted example of the style and I enjoyed it from the first sip to the last.

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: smoked sausage.
