3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

If you like coffee, this is the smell for you. Flavor wise, not so much. A little too sweet without the in tenseness if the coffee aroma. Beautiful to look at and pretty good to drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of bitter coffee malt. Hazy amber brown color, 5" bubbly ivory head that takes its sweet time dropping to 1/2", frothy waves of lace. Taste is sweet lactic malt with coffee and chocolate that glides through the palate to a bittersweet finish. The lingering "lees" turn sweeter as they fade. Really surprising in how balanced and drinkable it is.

330 ml bottle at home. Dark red-brown color with big light beige head. Aroma is coffee with a lot of spicy notes and musty. Taste is light malty sweet, a lot of coffee and some caramel. The finish is quite spicy, I feel a light burning on my tongue, slightly bitter and alcoholic. Light body, oily feel, a lot of carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy reddish brown under a huge creamy beige head that lasts and creates nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, bread, and caramel. Taste is not overly malty or yeasty, thanks to the coffee bitterness. There’s some spice and a bit of smoke in the finish. Body is medium, but with too much carbonation. This is a very satisfying, unusual doppelbock with memorable artwork on the label. I hope to find this one again.
