The Perkulator pours a dark plumb color with a thick foamy light tan head that lasts a very long time. The aroma is coffee and caramel. The flavor is coffee and caramel. Overall this is a decent beer.

That’s quite an experiment! In aroma you get an interesting mixture of intensive coffee notes and typical set of doppelbocks - malt, caramel and toffee. It pours deep amber hazy with nice head with proper lacing. Palate is very oily and the taste is sour sweet. Alcohol is very well masked since you concentrate on aroma mainly, carbonation is quite flat and the aftertaste is sour. Nice one.

http://imgur.com/Ra9suuJ - Bottle. Pours opaque brown with moderate, tan head that lasts and laces. Smells overwhelmingly of habańero pepper, of all things. Drinks smoothly with little lingering hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Tastes of pepper, roasted coffee, toasted malt, oak, and dark bread. Lots of distinct flavors. Good effervescence.

Pure awesome to go after thanksgiving dinner at Uncle Jim‘s. Coffee straight up, but with a lot more behind it.

This is definitely different from other coffee-influenced beers that I’ve tried, being lighter on the palate. I think my bottle might be a bit old, as it doesn’t seem quite as good as described in most reviews. Aroma is kind of a weird some-malt, some coffee. Pours dark brown, with, in my case, a big, big head that dissipated fairly quickly. Taste is very subdued coffee, malt, some decent hops bitterness and what seems like a metallic taste. Hey, I can say I tried it. Most likely won’t try it again.

Bottle from brewery. Pours clear brown, with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, coffee, and sugar. Sweet malty chocolate and sugar in the background of the taste, with coffee in the foreground. Clean finish. Feels a little thin. Overall enjoyable.

Pour looks like a cloudy cider. Thick frothy head with nice lacing. Aroma is coffee with bread dough and sweet peppers. Flavor is earthy with coffee grounds, burnt malt and sour mash. Medium body and carbonation. Overall I feel this is a little jumbled and without direction. Not bad but I probably wouldn’t buy it again.

Bottle, hazy dark chestnut brown color with tall airy head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, nuts. Taste is similar, with the emphasis on coffee. A pretty enjoyable brew.

Tap at Fat Cams. Pours a ruby color with medium tan head. The best coffee aroma I have ever smelled in a beer. Taste of coffee, malts and a smooth finish. My favorite Doppelbock!
