I think I have figured out I am not a big fan of dopplebocks outside of ceoebrator... like others I have tried, this has too much cloying sweetness, big pine hops and a little too much alcohol in taste. a bomber of this just gets old after awhild

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Fruity, slightly sweet aroma. Beginning to taste sweeter as it warms. Too bad. The sweetness ruins it for me. Perhaps I’m having an off night. Just not a fan of this style.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark with large off-white head. Aroma of malts and fruits (sort of wine-like). Complex taste, malts, grapes, chocolate, cranberry, coffee, slight breadiness, alcohol. A great complex beer, high alcohol too!

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours an amber/copper colour with off white head. Aromas of dried fruit and sugary sweetness. Taste is quite sweet, caramel and fruits. Okay.

Grass malt city in the aroma. This is very malty and tons of caramel. I like this. Almost has a barleywine feel to it. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet but not cloying. A bit of a apple juice via black currant vibe. Very unique but a it heavy on the palate after a it. I like it, but a bomber is definitely a ’sharing is caring’ experience with this one.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a thick frothy light tan head. Nose is very sweet and malty, with just a hint of a bite to it. Taste is a little harsh like a barleywine. Odd beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark amber in color. Good off white head, small amount of lace. Aroma was dried fruit, slight caramel. Taste seemed a little too hoppy for a Doppelbock. Overall not bad but not my favorite.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Coney Island Human Blockhead has a thick, creamy, cascading, tan head, a clear, copper appearance, and some lacing left on the glass. The head really sticks around with this one. The aroma is faint, but one detects sweet beer and brown bread. Taste is of a strong piney hop aroma, which is not picked up in the barrel-aged version of this brew. The drinker also gets brown bread, sweetness, rye spice, and a bit of alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium, and Coney Island Human Blockhead finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable for an imperial bock. Overall, this is a most excellent beer, and I highly recommend it. RJT
