Cameron’s Brewing Deviator Doppelbock

Whether intentional or not, the name and logo of this latest offering in Cameron’s Oak-Aged Series invites comparisons to Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock—which happens to be my favourite Doppelbock in the world. So, even before the cap is popped, this beer has big shoes to fill.

It pours dark, dark brown. The nose is buttery liquorice with some coffee in the background. The palate is rich, dark and sweet with a a slightly metallic finish. Celebrator it’s not but it definitely belongs at the party.
