Jailhouse Brewing (Hampton, GA) is launching their first doppelbock this today. The brewery started the first batches of this brew late this summer. Brewmaster Glen Golden describes this big beer:
Dead Man Walking marks our third entry into our seasonal lineup of beers known as the Trustees. Inspired by the darker days and haunting nights of October, Dead Man Walking is our interpretation of a German-Style Doppelbock. Munich and Pilsner malt provide a hint of malt sweetness layered with dark crystal and caramel malts including caramunich and caraaroma. The specialty grains impart noticeable dark fruit accents such as cherries, raisins and cranberries while the background notes of caramel and cocoa play a haunting tune. A surprisingly semi-dry finish makes for a very drinkable and refreshing version of a doppelbock.
Look for in 22 oz bombers, and draft in starting this week. (For those in Atlanta, look for a launch party at Cypress Street on 10/2)
7% ABV, 25 IBUs
