I've long been afraid of bocks. Considered them the bitter German dregs of already bitter German beer. Basically the beer equivalent of marijuana resin....er, so I hear. Despite mild intrigued, I've passed this by in the store many times. After seeing on tap at Dusty's and giving a 1/2 oz pour a test drive, hey, this ain't so bad! Let's try it.
Coffee bomb. If you don't like coffee, or don't like it in your beer, this is not the drink for you. Fortunately I love coffee in nearly everything. The small is Folger's or something. Malt and grains follow meekly in the background. For me, this is a good thing. Goes down dangerously easy. But is also very sweet. I suspect that might contribute to the drinkability and get tiresome after a while.
I have been down on Dark Horse lately. I've sent some bottles out in trades to people who expressed mild disappointment in them, and while I like PT5 and BBPT5, I don't like them as much as the masses and don't see what the fuss is all about. I really enjoyed this beer, though and it has me reconsidering DH as an upper-echelon brewery.

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.
