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

Appearance: Arrives with a modest head capping the Birch beer colored liquid; spots of lacing hang around

Smell: Perhaps it was the power of suggestion from the color, but it smelled a bit like a Birch beer, too, with elements of caramel and dark cherry

Taste: Very malty, with the caramel and dark cherry elements prevailing, almost like a Doppelbock; slightly earthy hops appear in the middle, but the finish is sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A little to malty for my palate, as I would have preferred a bit more balance; if it was called a Doppelbock (I know, this is an ale, not a lager) I might have perceived it differently
