Didn't feel like I got much barrel character from this. Started pretty nice but got a bit heavy at the end.

No bottling date, but this is the most recent release. Probably a couple months old.

A: A deep dark brown pour with a good sized light brown head. Fluffy, effervescent head that fades out fairly quickly. No sign of lacing. Moderate head retention.

S: Heavy caramel and toffee, probably from the barrels and from the malt combined. Light oak. Light herbal quality.

T: More of the same. Heavy, heavy caramel up front with just a hint of toffee. Toffee brightens through the middle and becomes more prominent along with a bunch of oak. Light dark fruits throughout. A heavy breadiness lingers in the aftertaste.

M: Somewhat heavy and sweet. Lower carbonation. Smooth.

O: A really nice doppelbock. The barrel aging accentuates the sweet maltiness with more layers of sweetness. Doesn't make it overpowering at all, just adds complexity. Great balance, great drinkability and overall a fine execution. One of the best doppelbocks I've had, if I'm honest.
