Samuel Adams Double Bock (Imperial Series)

Thick looking, malty monster, with an amazing dense cascading bubble laden head. There is minimal lacing. Beautiful mahogany, amber crystal clear pour.
Very round, full mouthfeel as the layered malts compete for your senses attention. Obviously bags of sweetness, malt, alcohol and toffee like caramel flavors.
I like this a lot, because I am a huge fan of the style, but the whole beer still feels somewhat disjointed to me. In one mouthful there is a cacophony of competing flavors. It’s all a bit jumbled up to be honest and leaves me feeling slightly dissatisfied.
I think this is just young. Lay a few of these puppies down for a couple of years and return to see the results. A micro/macro cellaring experiment is required I feel.
