look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.5 A: Clear dark amber color. Two fingers of frothy tan head. Retention is a bit below average, but a ton of lacing is left.

3.0 S: The nose is a bit underwhelming. Toasty with a hamster bedding type of mustiness. Caramel sweetness, but dry overall. Booze is well hidden. Lacking in complexity and not enough potency in the aromas presented to make up for it.

3.0 T: Same goes for the taste. Closer to boring than exciting, but well made. Lots of toastiness, with a mild caramel sweetness and a bit of mustiness. Not as dry as the nose, but not sweet either. Booze is again hidden well. I'd be a little more impressed if this was a 4% amber ale, but it isn't so I'm not.

3.5 M: Medium body. Dry, crisp carbonation that works well enough. Lacking creaminess, but again, it works with what is presented.

3.0 D: It's not a bad beer and it's definitely drinkable, but there isn't enough flavor to put this anywhere above average.

On tap at Wine 101 in Wake Forest

A - pours a light purplish amber with a soft, dense, off white head that has great retention

S - smells only of toasted malts

T - faint dark fruit, big toasted malt, a hint of caramel

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This was disappointing. The toasted malt notes dominated throughout. There were subtle hints of a solid doppelbock underneath the toasted malt, but it had no hope of coming out. I'll pass on this in the future.
