3.55/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours an opaque but cloudy deep amber in color with minimal amounts of gentle visible carbonation, some dark yeast particles in suspension near the bottom of the glass, and moderate amounts of cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of slightly burnt coffee (like the coffee that has been left on the burner way too long - usually at someplace like a gas station) over roasted malts and some hints of peppery yeast.

T: Upfront there is a solid malt body with some hints of caramel sweetness that is quickly overtaken by the moderate to strong flavors of slightly burnt coffee. Light hints of peppery yeast towards the finish with a hint of earthy hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which linger for quite a while but fade away.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin.

O: I had high hopes for this beer but having tried it twice now, I guess it is just not the beer for me. I really get the taste of coffee that has been left on the burner for way too long (and not great coffee at that). The mouthfeel is really light for the doppelbock style and other comparable beers - almost like iced coffee was poured into the beer.

4.25/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

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.
