bottle from pivni rozmanitost in prague. more black than brown with a fluffy brown head; aroma of mudcake dough, vanilla cream and, of course, coffee beans; loads of bitter chocolate flavours, rice krispies, good whack of bitterness, beautifully balanced Ernest (7697) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is medium to dark brown.
Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (coffee, coffee, coffee, roasted grain, caramel, chocolate milk), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of gum.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Well, it’s definitely over the top with the coffee, no argument with the "double coffee" name. It’s kind of one-dimensional as a result, though...the coffee is a bit acrid in the nose but fortunately not in the mouth. Fairly sweet, but not in a syrupy-cloying way, and there’s just enough bitterness in the finish to keep it drinkable (and it’s quite clean as well...no huskiness or foulness). Nice creamy mouthfeel and lasting head give it a few extra points, but as a whole it’s a bit of a novelty. Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, cold coffee, grainy malts, hints of ash. Taste is malty and slightly roasty with notes of coffee, cocoa, chocolate and hints of grain. Finish is sweetish and slightly roasty with some coffee notes. Decent, a bit unbalanced brown ale.
On tap at Frisco: pours a clear bright mahogany with a stringy lacing light tan head. Has a big fresh roasty coffee nose with some lightly sweet toasted malt underneath. Starts with pretty good fullness and toasted malty sweetness with lots of roasty coffee flavor and bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. An interesting and well-made brew.

500ml bottle. Deep clear burnt-brick red with a fairly large and long-lasting tan thick cap of tightly foamy head. Aroma is wet limestone, medium roast coffee bean malt and alcohol. Taste is ... terrific; only slightly mineral, it’s mostly nutty coffee and dried herb bitterness with alcohol and some slight sharp lactic character. Average body, a bit astringent, nicely carbonated, and a medium roasty/dry bitter finish, interesting mineral aftertaste. Very nice. AshtonMcCobb (6613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2016
