Gold Medal winning Butt Head Bock brewed with heavy toasted Hungarian Oak. Deep earth and wood notes make this specialty a substantially enjoyable brew for the connoisseur.

2.75/5  rDev -21%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

a: Dark copper with a thin off-white head.

s: Oak, way to much oak. Some smoky notes, maybe it's charred oak.

t: Caramel, vanilla and oak. Lots of oak. Nod depth, the flavor is more shiner bock than doppelbock.

m: Thin for the style. Short finish. The feel is more oktoberfest than doppelbock.

d: I have never heard of an oak-aged doppelbock and now I know why: if the Doppelbock is any good, it doesn't need oak.

The oak completely overwhelms this beer. It does not taste like a Doppelbock. With that in mind, it is still a decent beer, but this seems more like Tommyknocker jumping on the oak-aged bandwagon than a well executed craft beer.

A - nice deep redish brown color with a somewhat week white head

S - good sweet vanilla aroma with a slight alcohol smell and an interesting rubbery smell; very interesting

T - slight smoky component, strong earthy taste and again the vanilla is the most prominent thing coming from the oak and a little caramel

M - the mouthfeel is a little week, not a ton of carbonation and so-so body

D - its a smooth drink very interesting there is a lot of stuff going on but nothing steels the show well balanced
