3.13/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a chilled glass, nice dark brown almost black color with a 3 fingered creamy tan head that stayed for a while, laced well on the glass. Aroma held roasted malts and chocolate hints, taste went the same way with some coffee in the back ground as well. With a medium mouthfeel it goes well with dinner as it drinks like a food course, rich and full flavored for sure. Overall a nice brew and I would try others from this brand, if you like Stouts and Porters you'll enjoy this for what it is.

12 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint

This beer pours up an absolutely beautiful obsidian black with a lucious 2 finger foamy caramel colored head, great retention, and awesome lacing. And right there the awesomeness ends. The nose, especially as it warms is malt and alcohol. At 6.25%, the odor of alcohol just shouldn't be present. Taste is more like a porter with some roasted nut notes and malt. The finish is a sort of burnt coffee flavor. Mouthfeel is sort of thin, but there is a decent amount of carbonation. I wouldn't refuse one of these, but neither would I search one out.

3.68/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured chilled in hotel glass in Greenville, SC

A: very buoyant head with mixed size of bubbles; solid black; good carbonation
S: strong, persistent bock/malt aroma
T: dry, straightforward; medium bitterness; strong charred malt taste, with dashes of aniseed; I feel the alcohol (7%) is meshed nicely in this flavor profile

Good solid beer.

This beer is so thick and the alcohol is right in your throat at all times. It is only 7 % and is so chewy, sweet, molasses, etc that being a Doppelbock lover I can only drink 1 of these beers.
I won't go out on a limb but I think the South makes a totally different Doppelbock from the North.
