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!

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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bottle poured clear reddish hue w/ a medium frothy tan head slowly diminishing to a nice cap and some lacing. Moderate aromas of rum soaked raisins, prune, molasses, biscuit, and toffee. Initial flavor is heavy sweet with a light bitter finish of long duration. Taste of caramel, molasses, raisin, prune, toast, nuttiness, biscuit, pepper, and some yeast esters. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation and moderate alcohol in the finish. Sip this one like brandy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml. Clear ruby-chestnut with a lasting ring of cream. Aroma is cherry, toffee, brandy and a hint of dried grass. Flavor is the same mix with some woody hops and a medicinal note as well. Medium heavy body is smoothly carbonated and sweet, but well dried and warmed by the alcohol. Decent, but a bit too boozy for my tastes.
