3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rock Bottom Colorado Springs. Color is near back with good carbonation and a thick tan head. Aroma of coffee with a smoky note in back. Palate comes across light, almost crisp on a medium body. Flavor has lots of roasted malt, toffee and a touch of smoke, then a light bitterness on the end. After taste is clean with just a bit of the bitterness hanging on and the alcohol showing. Overall I like it, maybe light for a Doppelbock but still a nice brew.
