12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Sweet artwork on the bottle. Caveat, I enjoy coffee as much as I do beer so I had extremely high hopes for this one. Might have judged too harshly.
A- Deep dark hazy auburn. Not a pleasant looking color. Moderate pour produced a non-retaining off-white head of about a finger. Plenty of visible carbonation bubbles. No lacing on the glass.
S- Primarily a sweetish coffee smell. Undertones of bitter chocolate and hints of vanilla. Maybe a french vanilla coffee. A nice smell.
T- I could make this a replacement for my morning coffee. At the front, there is a sweet malt base that becomes coffee dominated. I also am getting some chocolate bitterness. A smidgen of vanilla also comes though in the aftertaste. A lingering of burnt coffee is present.
M- Medium body with a bit too much carbonation. The carbonation makes all the flavors a little too biting. Plenty of bitterness on the cheeks and tongue.
O- Enjoyable. I am not sure I would buy it again, but I did enjoy it. The appearance could be improved, but not if the taste is lost. A very pleasant beer at anytime in the day, just not more than one bottle at a time for me.

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.
