Thomas Creek Deep Water Doppelbock Lager
I picked up a bottle of Thomas Creek Deep Water Dopplebock Lager when is Greenville, SC, as the beer is brewed there. The beer has a dark brown color with a foamy white head. The aroma consists of fig and dark fruits. The taste is malty and sweet with a heavy dose of fig and raisins and other dark fruits. It has a light, slightly watery finish that is also a bit dry. The alcohol content is 6.25% ABV. I didn't think that this beer was terrible, but not an overly impressive dopplebock. I would be willing to try other beers from Thomas Creek is I was in the neighborhood, but I would not go out of my way to get some, based on this beer.
