Cameron’s Deviator Doppelbock (Bourbon Barrel Aged) is a unique brew that is based on our previous award-winning Doppelbock releases. It is 8.6% ABV and best served 8–10 C in a tapered glass such as a snifter. Doppelbocks are Teutonic-inspired dark lagers that feature imported German malt and were served by the Bavarian monks during times of fasting as “liquid bread.” This version of Cameron’s Deviator Doppelbock has been aged for six months in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This process lends to a smooth, toasted vanilla notes, and layered upon the complex malty body. 650 ml, 8.6% alc./vol.
The first Deviator Doppelbock release won the following awards:
2013 “Ontario Brewing Awards” Silver
2012 “Canadian Brewing Awards” Gold
2012 “Australian International Beer Awards” Silver

This is the best brew yet!!!
This is a slightly hoppier version of Innis and Gunn. The oak is a huge part of the flavor profile and I love it!!
Smooth carbonation, great flavor and a cool ass name. This will make another appearance in my fridge!!!
After a day of freezing rain, a cancelled hockey game, chipping away at the ice on the sidewalk and driveway (was actually pretty straight forward), was looking forward to dinner and the drinks that accompanied it. Before i got to this beer i had the standard Cab Sav with a steak dinner. Heck yes! I wasnt letting the freezing rain get the better of us and barbequing a steak! We are Canadian afer all!
Pouring this beer, it poured a very dark brown. Coca Cola in colour! Not much head to this one. Could smell the malt on this one. Could taste the malt as well. Low to medium carbonation but a bit thicker than previous beers. This one didnt go down as smooth. Not one of my favorites.
I just cracked this open as a reward for completing a 9+ hour winter car trip that foolishly only got underway at 3:15 pm. Anyway, for a strong beer, I like this way way more than the cuvée from day 7. Flavours of coffee and chocolate and dare I say a little bit buttery(?), and a creamy feel in the mouth. For 8.6%, I find it easy to drink. This isn’t the flavour I would consider ideal in an everyday beer, but to take the edge off at the end of a very long day, this is quite nice.
I thankfully didn’t taste bourbon, and I didn’t taste any oaking either, but I could have had a second one
