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.

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.
