Lakefront My Turn #005 Chris
Lakefront My Turn #005 Chris is a Doppelbock. We often talk to brewers about whether or not they allow employees brew their own concepts, and it we’ve found that many do. With it’s My Turn Series, Lakefront reaches out to all members of the brewery team as well. This review is for Batch #005 from Chris, their tour director. Inspired from his own homebrew, this Doppelbock is brewed with maple syrup and vanilla beans. I love the nose on this beer, sweet and malty with a lot of roasted nuts. Yeah, the maple syrup and vanilla sure do come through on this, mixing with the sweet caramel you would expect. Better as it warms, but this might be a bit too sweet overall for the style.
