Ballast Point Brandy Barrel Aged Navigator Doppelbock
San Diego Week is rounding the corner to the finish line. But there are still tons of cool events to check out,one of them being Ballast Point Barrel Aged Beer Day at the Scripps Ranch Brewery (Fri 11/11). One of the beers that you might be able to try is Barrel Aged Navigator Doppelbock. Cheers!
Ballast Point Brewing – Ballast Point Brandy Barrel Aged Navigator Doppelbock – On tap at the brewery – 10% abv.
Appearance: Pours a coca-cola brown with a pin stripe of tan around the top. No lacing to be found, and even after swirling, not much foam action.
Aroma: Bubble gum and wood.
Taste: Burnt sugar,juicy fruit, wood. Finishes woody and sweet.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, modest carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable, lots of big flavors. I didn’t capture much Brandy in the aroma or taste, as the flavors and odors I usually find from a Doppel bock were very sweet and dominant.

Had this over at Blue Palms the other day, one of the best brandy aged beers I’ve tried, I actually fancied it over the Brandy Angel’s Share.
