3.65/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Bottle cellared for three years at 42.5 degrees.
A - Poured into a snifter the beer has a nice lacy head that doesn't last very long on top of it's medium to dark brown rather transparent body.
S - Strong coffee aroma with a very sharp and bitter edge. The aroma is extremely impressive but almost a bit too much.
T - The flavor starts out slightly malty and releases into the bite of the coffee. Considering the cellaring for three years I'm pleasantly surprised at how well the coffee taste has withstood time.
M - The feel is wet and non-abrasive. Goes down well even with the sharpness of the coffee flavor.
~ This beer was probably better off fresh. However, the three year mark greatly exceeded my expectations considering where it was at year one in t he cellar.

Bottle cellared for a year.
A - Poured into a snifter this beer has only a trace of light tan, swirling head. The body is a translucent dark brown giving way to waves of deep purple peeking through. 2.5
S - The aroma of coffee and cocoa in a mild quantity. 3.5
T - Slightly bitter coffee flavor with a hinting at an offness. I'm thinking time may not have been the best thing for this beverage. 3
M - Very slight coarse feel but it goes down with extreme ease. 4.5
~ Aged for a year is probably not the best route to take with this beer. I think it was better tasting a year ago. However, the aromas are better now. Overall the beer is still very drinkable. 4.5

A - Dark brown body with a cloudy visibility. The head is somewhat minimal at less than half an inch and it recedes very fast leaving a only whisps of pale tan at the surface. 2.5
S - Coffee is very much present in the aroma. There's a certain dark robustness to the coffee scent that is a bit unbecoming. 2
T - The flavors are complex and intertwined. It starts off a bit malty and then moves to a slight coffee flavor. As the pull continues the coffee taste increases with intensity. Before melting into a subtle cocoa finish. This is a great tasting beer. 5
M - The texture is smooth as it fills my mouth. This beer is very easy to drink at it warms my mouth and throat with each take. 5
~ This is a fantastic beer. I'm extremely impressed with the 'head' and warming effect it has. I will definitely be recommending this to my pals. 4.5

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.
