Oaked Butt Head Bock

12 oz single, Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a muddy, Dubbel-like mid brown with a disappointing lack of clarity.
Musty aroma with some blue cheese notes and a mild acidity – slight lactose aroma. Strange.
Tastes reflect the nose and offer a weird combination of light acidity (unexpected) amongst the more predictable smoke/oak notes and the malty, alcohol strong, Doppelbock flavors.
Not sure that there is any point in oaking a Doppelbock I think that there is precious little to be gained. This beer ends up being a messy version of something that would have been much better left well alone. For me, a classic example of what’s bad about tinkering with beers.
