A Note on This Beer
Fall doesn’t arrive in the Wisconsin craft scene until Capital Brewery releases their most anticipated annual brew: Autumnal Fire Doppelbock. With 4 GABF Gold medals for its silky caramel apple flavors and cognac-like depth, the bounty never lasts -- and even after it’s gone, crazed fans continue to swarm to their brewery all year on the off chance there’s still some left.
Ranked one of the best Doppelbocks in the world on BeerAdvocate, its big malty body harnesses flavors of rich dark fruits with hints of spice and a warming 7.8% ABV. It’s been deemed an “Oktoberfest on steroids,” and each lavish sip tells you why.
Autumnal Fire gleams a mahogany hue, opening up to flavors more decadent and complex than handmade toffee confection or honey-dipped figs. Smooth brown sugar melts into light molasses, coating your mouth with velvety sweetness. A touch of hop bitterness rounds out a crisp finish.
One of the most lauded and legendary Doppelbocks in craft, you won’t have to beg the brewery for access to this year’s crave-worthy stash of Autumnal Fire, because we already did it for you! Grab a few bottles to cellar, like hardcore Capital fans do -- or just go ahead and drink them now to usher in the fall.
