This pours nice and dark and clean and leaves very fluffy bubbles on top.
Smells somewhat sweet.
Taste isn't quite there. It is kind of thin and runny strange, like spoiled water or something. I can't describe it, but I don't like it. Then there are hops, but it is - lemon - that's it, kind of like unsweetened lemon juice or something. Not what I'd want in a dopplebock. The alcohol is well hidden, but not in a way I enjoy.
mouthfeel is wet. Not bad, there are some bubbles, but it is kind of flat too.
The body is thin.
I'm a dopplebock fan, one of my favorite styles. This is missing that rich chewy malty body that makes a dopplebock what it is.

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.
