Bottle. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy off-white to light tan head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is coffee, light German melanoidin malts, spicy and earthy Noble hops with dark dried fruit notes. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, and a clean lager character with a dry finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz poured into a shaker. Off white head. Nice sticky lacing. Light malt aroma. Mild coffee. Burnt sugar. Hazy brown with lots of small particles. Sweet malt flavor up front, brown sugar, caramel. Searching for the coffe. If it’s there, it’s very faint in the finish. I get the dopplebock, but lost on why advertize the coffee side of it. Tasty, but I’m left expecting something more.

Pours a murky raisin colour with sediment. Aromas are cold black coffee and dried fruit. Very similar flavour profile...some candy sweetness too. I like this. Interesting, quite different.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Vin at the Daduary 2013 tasting. Pours a deep murky brown with minor lacing. Aroma is coffee, light cocoa, pepper and spice. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with similar notes - definitely a decent amount of pepper to this brew, but overall very nice.
