Pensacola Bay Brewery
Style | ABV
The fierce qualities of some of Florida’s earliest explorers are represented with our flavorful Conquistador Dopplebock. With a high ABV – over 7% – our brew is as strong as the Spanish that conquered much of our coast. After one or two, you might start calling yourself Don Jose and looking for a helmet.
The conquistadors were searching for treasure in Florida: gold, silver, the secret of immortality. While we can’t guarantee you’ll find gold at the bottom of a pint, maybe there’s a drop from the Fountain of Youth. And we’re not telling where it is.
Take home a growler, enjoy a pint – the Conquistador Dopplebock will make the weakest men ready to sail across the sea.

Consumed at the brewery, March 10th, 2012.
Appearance: deep plummy red/brown with no head. Served perhaps a little too cold?
Slight trace of smoke in the nose. Sadly unaromatic.
Flavor: Up front, there is some plum and prune. Some clean brown malts (think wheat bread) in the middle. Some melanoidin notes. Flavor finishes with smoke and a little alcohol heat. Not as complex or strong-flavored as the best examples of the style, but there's nothing off here.
Mouthfeel is unremarkable save for a very slight dryness.
Not a bad stab at the style, though not world class.
Serving type: on-tap

Mark Robertson has brought us another killer brew from Pensacola! Always his own worst critic, he swore that he was unhappy with the way this turned out. Absolutely not so! I was lucky enough to be granted two tastes straight out of the fermenter tank and now I've got the completed product. Poured into a goblet at Hopjacks Downtown Pensacola...
A: Big fluffy head of densely-packed tiny bubbles sits atop dark amber goodness. Head fades in about a minute with spotty lacing.
S: Nutty with some hits of honey and lots of nice malt. Slightly floral dose of hops rounding it all out.
T: Hazelnut, walnut, fresh caramel flirting with being almost burnt, sherry booziness, preserved orange peel and a whisper of hop bitterness to balance it all out.
M: Very smooth and light with just enough carbonation to let you know it's alive. Some sweet coating lingers.
O: Dangerously drinkable... he hid the abv very well (this batch is 8.9% btw) and due to its excellent balance, more than two could really get a fella in some trouble. Quit your worrying, Mark; this dopple is a solid winner.
