3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

A hazed brown bock with a thick receding brown head. In aroma, sweet fruit carmale with dark fruits and coffee, resinous and pleasant. light woody character, surprising. In mouth, nice caramel malt with good mocha coffee, sweet, caramelly, and pleasant. Bottle is about 2 years old and still going strong.

Pours dirty brown with a small off white ring. Aroma is a ton of coffee and some smoke. Taste coffee, lots of coffee which overshadows a lot of the other flavours.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a murky brown color with a creamy off white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate & coffee; however the coffee aromas almost seem stale or bad. Taste is loads of coffee and chocolate that blend together fairly well and leaves a good bitterness on the finish as well as an altering combination of chocolate sweetness as well. Very smooth for 8%.

600ml bottle. Large tan head, dark brown amber colour. Smell is strong, good quality coffee. Taste is pretty much just coffee. but it was really good. Alcohol was masked really well. Overall, it lacks complexity but it was really tasty.
