3.51/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Opaque dark nut brown with some visible sediment throughout. Thin light brown head that is almost syrupy in appearance.
Aroma: Amber and caramel malts with a hint of brown sugar. A malt bomb to say the least (as was expected).
Taste: Chocked full of nice malt flavors. Very robust caramel, amber, hints of roasty malts, toffee, and a nutty flavor. There is a small bit of bitterness imparted from the hops which have a earthy character but are not very apparent in the overall flavor. This bottle is dated from May 2012, not sure how old that is in terms of the style. Pretty good all around. Really none of the 7.8% ABV present in the taste but I wouldn't think it was any lighter had I not known the ABV.
Mouthfeel: Above medium in body with smooth effervescence and above average drinkability.
Final Thoughts: The Doppelrock pretty much met my expectations. A very malty brew that has a lot of great flavors but is not mind-blowing. Just a good beer. Would I drink it again? Sure, I'd want to try it fresh.
