Hoppin' Frog Brewing Karminator Imperial Dopplebock

What the brewers say

“Extremely rich and malty German-style lager.”

What our panel thought

“Instant warming character on the nose in an ever-so-pleasant way—rich toasted layers with dark plum, plus tropical notes of pineapple and coconut. The flavor intensifies the nose as the alcohols highlight the luscious aspects. Hints of apple and caramel in the flavor are accentuated by a peppery spice that lingers.”

What our editors thought

“Edgy red fruit and caramel in the nose—cherry, red currant—but spritely and quick. The sip is less sweet than expected, but just enough to highlight and soften the red-fruit notes.”
