1.93/5  rDev -49.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Pours a dark amber with a very thin off white head and no lacing.

Scent is of sweet malts, raisins. Ok, I can't even work up enough head to get an honest smell of this beer. I'm getting frustrated.

Taste follows the nose? Sweet malts and dark fruits without the slightest hint of bitterness until long after I have swallowed each sip, and then its just sour.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. I think this beer is too thin for a dopplebock. Appropriate carbination, though.

Drinkability is low. I have to say this is one of the worst dopplebocks I have ever had.

Another sub-par offering from Bells. When will they get it right?
I have never had a bad beer from Rogue, Stone, or from Founders for that matter. Bells still has issues with consistant brewing across the board. This beer is terrible, and I wouldn't recomend it to anyone. I poured the rest down the drain.
