Anchor Bock Beer

This one has been a LONG time coming – glad to get here eventually. Not available in GA, this one came from a recent jaunt up the east coast. 8JW dot-matrixed in the usual Anchor manner.
Good, mahogany color from a noisy pour. Rich body, head and lace – very nice looking. Head is very nicely retained with good lace.
Tastes lack a bit of sweetness that I was looking for, and have an almost tea-like taste. Good mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden. Some bitterness in the finish, but not much. Tannin lingers and coats the mouth a bit. Red ember highlights are very bright.
I guess that the beer lacks a little something. I think it is a combination of sweetness and alcohol that I was looking for more of to keep this in style. On reflection maybe I was expecting more of a Doppelbock (which may not be at all fair), either way I was left wanting a bit more.
