Bottle from World of Beer, FL.

Poured clear brown color with a minimal frothy brown head that mostly diminished with virtually no lacing. Moderate to heavy aroma of roasted malt and wood. Medium to full body. Well balanced flavor of woody malt with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

This is a solid drinkable brew.

a: Dark copper with a thin off-white head.

s: Oak, way to much oak. Some smoky notes, maybe it's charred oak.

t: Caramel, vanilla and oak. Lots of oak. Nod depth, the flavor is more shiner bock than doppelbock.

m: Thin for the style. Short finish. The feel is more oktoberfest than doppelbock.

d: I have never heard of an oak-aged doppelbock and now I know why: if the Doppelbock is any good, it doesn't need oak.

The oak completely overwhelms this beer. It does not taste like a Doppelbock. With that in mind, it is still a decent beer, but this seems more like Tommyknocker jumping on the oak-aged bandwagon than a well executed craft beer.

A - nice deep redish brown color with a somewhat week white head

S - good sweet vanilla aroma with a slight alcohol smell and an interesting rubbery smell; very interesting

T - slight smoky component, strong earthy taste and again the vanilla is the most prominent thing coming from the oak and a little caramel

M - the mouthfeel is a little week, not a ton of carbonation and so-so body

D - its a smooth drink very interesting there is a lot of stuff going on but nothing steels the show well balanced
