@ BEAULO , bottle 750ml
Aroma Wooo! Plenty of coffee, dry nose, dry character. Potent caffeine in your face. Instant fix. 8-
Appearance dark amber-copper look. Clear. Medium yet short lived top.
Flavor and Palate : I don’t need coffee anymore was my first thought…Dry coffee roast, basic bold in your face smack. Chewy long lasting character with solid malt Base. Because of its intensity it’s good to split 750 with your friends.

From the bottle, dark ruby brown with a soft head. Aroma, very strong coffee aroma, roasted malts? The coffee scent seems to over power any hops that might be in there. On the palate, malt, caramel, coffee.. ..okay.

Bottle [600ml] shared with GregClow at Wvrst. Pours a very deep amber with a small semi-lasting frothy/creamy off-white (or tan) head -- it was dark in here so it’s my best guess. Big coffee aroma, and mostly just coffee, along with some notes of chocolate, light roasted malt, cream and dark fruit. Flavour is also big-time coffee along with some lightly roasted caramel malt, chocolate and a hint of dark fruit. Roasty, bitter coffee finish. The alcohol is totally hidden. Medium bodied, almost-creamy mouthfeel. In a blind taste-test I would swear this was a thinner Coffee Porter but regardless of how you want to classify it, either way it’s really good -- if you like coffee of course.

In bottle 600ml - from the brewery. Finally a morning beer!
It has a nice coffee aroma, mixed with toffee, cereal and roasted nuts. Nice brown robe of a doppelbock, medium carbonation and a neck that vanishes somewhat fast. Dark chocolate taste that bring bitter notes mixed with the complex aroma. Slick beer with a short finish that will leave you refreshed. The coffee blend doesn’t make this beer "heavy", it’s made with coffee, not expresso after all. Nice recipe, would buy again.

Pours dark copper, not quite brown. Good creme head that looks surprisingly creamy. Aroma is... pretty close to real coffee actually (...well, let’s say, instant coffee) in which some burnt caramel and honey have been poured in. Taste is... well, slightly toffee ish and lots of coffee. Some hints of dried fruits (Think dates) as well. Really not bitter and... surprisingly sweet, without the feeling of having poured sugar in a coffee cup. Interesting, especially to see a coffee beer based of a doppelbock...
