look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Deep, dark molasses brown. Medium visibility, thin suds cover, with low/medium viscosity. No head on the pour.

Aroma: Thick chocolate malt aroma, with light roast coffee notes. Chocolate notes and a slight raisin finish develop as the beer warms.

Taste: Immediate roasted malt flavor - leans toward the finish typical of a porter. Coffee notes, but with no bitterness. Compares well to New Glarus Uff-da Bock, but without the sweet malt development in the finish. Subtle maple and treacle finish, with lightens and sweetens further as the beer warms up.

Mouthfeel: Good finish - low carbonation and a clean malt finish. Light medium body. Very smooth.

Drinkability: Not quite as a sweet or full bodied as you might want from a doppelbock, but definitely drinkable and a beer I'll return to. THis beer is light enough to drink a few of in a session, but as a result doesn't have the complexity of other bock beers.
