Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a medium creamy tan head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is coffee, ashtray, caramel. Flavor is light sweet, no real bitterness, definitely ashtrays and coffee. Some astringence present. Medium body, bubbly mouthfeel. Good enough.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz: Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is of coffee grounds, roasted malts, but really doesn’t have much of the aroma that is associated with doppelbocks. Taste is slightly sweet. Loads of coffee ground. Kind of like espressoish. Really easy to drink. Quite nice.

Pours a dark copper with a thick, tan head that stays. Superb lacing. Mildly malty aroma. Rich, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet, roasted, malty flavor with subtle coffee notes that enhance the taste. Smooth, sweet finish. Very good product.

12oz bottle...Jan 2012...the pour is a ruddy brown ,like a light cola... with no head
immediate coffee burst but muddled...the aroma is raisin and prune ...dates and figs as well , in the aroma as well as the palate...it’s strange like coffee mixed with prunes, this will make you go! creamy yet effervescent on the palate

Bottle. Aroma of creamy coffee, nice dark molasses, figs and chocolate. The coffee is subtle on the nose. Pours very murky and brown with a decent film. Taste is intensely rich with great smooth coffee cappuccino notes. Nice doppelbock fruit and sugar. Much smoother than expected.
