Draft at Tattoed Mom. Big coffee flavor but doesnít look as dark as it tastes. Poured a cloudy full amber, not black. Whatever head there was disappeared entirely by the time I got it. Interesting, but mostly one note.

Little to no head. Coffee aroma, obviously. I'm used to this flavor in a stout so this is less bitter than I'm used to. Still good.

[4610-20120708] 12floz bottle. Dry wasabi pea grains aroma has a light coffee waft. Hazy, dark amber brown body with a quick creamy off-white head. Spiced toasted grains flavour has a light fruit red pepper malt aftertaste. Medium body. Interesting, not really getting a lot of coffee. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

bottle. claims 7.0% light brown with a small, stable, creamy beige head. fresh coffee aroma. an odd style to add coffee if you ask me, but whatever. its strong coffee flavor. actually works. background maltiness and caramel with loads of fresh medium roast coffee beans. must try for coffee fans, however, they should probably validate their dopplebock with a clean version.

Pours dark brown with reddish hue and a small head. Aroma is coffe and pepper spice. Interesting combo. Lots of coffee up front with light fruit flavor and spice on the finish. Lingering coffee flavor. Prickly carbonation, but heavier body than expected (medium mouthfeel). Nice changeup, though the spice is a bit strange with the coffee. Overall a decent brew.

Bottle shared with Shaun.Very pronounced coffee aromas and flavour from the outset.Poured a dark copper colour with minimal light tan head.Sweet malt too,both on the nose and in the taste.Flaked chocolate in the taste as well making a tasty beer we would try again (albeit only 1 per session).

At Khyber Pass in Philly. This just didnít work for me. The earthiness of the coffee just didnít appeal in the least. Hazy amber with nice off-white head. Weird herbal nose with the raw coffee bean aroma. I enjoy a good Dopplebock to kick back with but this isnít in the ball park.

12 ounce bottle, just like the photo. The coffee really jumps out at you from this one. I liked it a lot. Thereís a malted sweetness too and carries on for a long time. Dark amber color, thin layer of head, medium bodied. Strong coffee taste that works well alongside a lager-flavor backbone. Abv is politely tucked away from the flavor. This is one of my favorites from Dark Horse, which is surprising given Iím typically opposed to dopplebocks.
