Sam Adams Double Bock looks and smells pretty good. The color is a dark reddish brown with a creamy off-white head and just a touch of sticky lace. It's quite sweet with not much bitterness, and a straightforward dark malt flavor of caramel and toffee, not too complex. What I enjoyed most was the mouthfeel, which was warming with soft bubbles, and the flavor flooding the roof of the mouth, while the taste goes front to back and through the pallet. What I liked least was the 8.8 which limits my intake. A decent though not exciting brew.

Pours a medium brown with caramel highlights and minimal cream head that dissipates to almost nothing.
Deep caramelization, melanoidins. Toasted, nutty malt.
Lots of kettle caramelization, slightly sweet melanoidin character. Enough toasted malt to counter the sweetness and nuttiness to finish things out. Slightly bitter finish. A touch of roast and dark cherries.
Body is fairly full with minimal carbonation and substantial alcohol warmth.
Nice melanoidin character, not cloyingly sweet, but a bit hot.
Serving type: on-tap
