Appearance - The beer was a handsome dark brown with visible variations in the color.

Smell - The malts have accents of coffee and malt, but not to a high degree.

Taste - My initial impression is smooth dark coffee. It is not as roasty or chewy as I would expect from the style. The malts leaning more toward coffee makes this seem to be less of a doppelbock. The dark malts continue in the aftertaste, but are surprisingly thin.

Mouthfeel - In the mold of classic doppelbocks, this lacks the thickness. It just does not do far enough into doppelbock territory.

Overall - The profile just does not go far enough to be a great doppelbock.

A thick imperial like dopplebock. Big chocolate and it's on the sweeter side, with understated bitterness. A big beer, very dangerously drinkable. Deep brown bodied with lots of retained head. Malty aroma. Bottle in trade from (fill in blank when I remember).
