look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Very faint aroma of bready, toffee sweetness. You really have to get your nose in there. Pours an impenetrable black, you can only see a little light when held right up to a bulb. No lace or head to speak of. Nice, if typical Dopplebock taste. Medium sweet followed by pleasant bitterness. Cool label.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

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
