Top Rung Brewing Company Winter Lager

What the brewers say

Made using malt exclusively from our friends at Mecca Grade Estate Malting, creating what we call a PNW-style doppelbock.

What our panel thought

Malt-forward aroma: toast, cocoa, raisin, cola, Maduro cigar, light coffee, hint of browned johnnycake. Heady, malt-dominated flavor—deep toasted bread crust, cocoa, fig, raisin, spicy ethanol, toffee, dried cherry. Hop-bitterness builds. Quite creamy. Clean. Lovely. Doppelbock-adjacent.

What our editors thought

Piney hops with a touch of citrus in the nose; chocolate-fig notes emerge as its sits. In the sip, those richer dark-fruit notes push through the wall of chocolate and roast.
