look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance- Pours up about 2 fingers of head which doesn't have much retention. The head is off-white with hints of beige while the body is a maroon/dark amber that glows a medium to dark amber with maroon around the edges. No lacing left as of yet.

Nose- From the glass, I get faint hints of caramel. The bottle gives up conspicuous notes of caramel that has cinnamon around the edges. After some vigorous swirling, the beer only shows some burnt caramel and burnt raisin.

Taste- Sweet malt strikes first- caramel, brown bread, brown sugar, molasses, and hints of raisins. There seems to be a spiciness on the finish that is close to the cinnamon of the nose. Some heat as well. The cinnamon of the flavor profile approaches the heat of red hots candy. There is a lot of presence but balance seems to be lacking. At points, the malt bill seems to point toward burnt bread and burnt raisins. Starts to mellow but the burnt nature of the malt bill seems to take over the finish. I can understand how some might enjoy this beer but it's not for me. A just above average beer at the moment.

Mouthfeel- Almost medium bodied with a good amount of syrup to the texture. They could perhaps dial back the carbonation a little bit.

Drinkability- The heat does fade after a few minutes but the flavor profile is an obstacle for me. Price is not bad.

Overall- Matches the heavy malt bill of most doppelbocks but lacks the integration of some of the better ones and is definitely not in the same class as Ayinger. If you like doppelbocks, then give it a try. If not, you can pass.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: caramel brown in color, 1/3 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: rich and deep caramel

Taste: deep caramel, brown sugar, slight chocolate

Mouthfeel: rich and heavy bodied, low carbonation, sweet

Overall:A solid doppelbock that is dangerously drinkable. This one is good and sweet but not overly complex. I will pick this up again at some point.
