This beer has a medium brown color, a bit thick so as to give it a somewhat murky look, with a red tint in it. The head, a lighter tan shade, is neither impressive nor unimpressive in stature or composition, though the quantity and heaviness of the lacing is fairly impressive.
Malts hold a good structure, caramel and toast, with coffee grounds pulling in. Underneath is a bit of char and something like baked sugar (?), and there's just a ghost of something like grains. it's on the unusual side, Americanized in its own way. Coffee is pretty fresh, though not as much as in the flavor
A bit more hops come through with a grassy note on the tongue, but there remains a very malty base to this beer. It's a bit breadier, toasty really, with coffee coming in at moderate strength. Dark fruits make their way in, eventually more like tart apple flesh, under a slight heat.
I like the body to be bigger in a doppel, but it holds its own. Ultimately, it's about medium in strength, fairly dry, not overly crisp but slightly more than it is smooth.

Perkulator pours a brown color with a nice lacing head. There is a strong coffee aroma. The taste has a nice roasted malt flavor, with a big coffee flavor. The taste is very full, and complete, with a great feel, perfectly carbonated with nice strong flavors. Overall its a big coffee flavored beer.
