look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Served cool from 12 oz brown bottle into a Boston Lager glass.
Pour is crystal clear and cola colored, light pour with little body. Nice light tan 3/8" head. No lacing.
Aroma is subtle Munich maltiness.
Flavor is mild, caramel and nutty. Very balanced, low bitterness, with a nice dry finish, no cloying sweetness that ruins many doppelbocks.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin, you'd never guess that this was a 9.5% beer.
Drinkability is great--even dangerous. No hint of the high alcohol content, not cloying, no boozy nose, just a clean, dark, malty beer. Highly recommended.
Really really good experience. I generally don't like DB's because they are too rich and syrupy, but this beer is refreshing--even chugalicous--not gooey, goes down like a bock or dunkel. I'd love to be able to get this on tap. Goes great with a meal.

Reviewed from notes
Appearance: mahogany to black. a finger of a tan head, leaves behind a slight lacing after slowly fading. Opaque.
Smell: large whiffs of chocolate, slight variation from lighter to darker chocolate. some breadiness and lager yeast sweetness
Taste: opens up with chocolate and does develop into much. some lager yeast.
Mouthfeel: no lager cleanness to it. fairly watery feel
Overall: an overly chocolate and most likely not well fermenated doppelbock. no cleanness and way too one sided.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a clear deep brown with garnet highlights and a modest tan head that dissipates to a thin foam layer.
Aroma is toasted malt, nutty, with a sweet caramel component. There's a hint of dark fruit character.
Flavor is malt dominant, of course, but a touch scorched initially. Fairly sweet, the alcohol is potent and counters the overly toasted malt. The dark fruit is subtle, and sherry-like. Cardboard surfaces late.
Body is fairly full, with minimal carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
The charred and fruity characters are offputting. Either this beer has changed or my palate has. Used to really like it. Seems oxidized.
