3.9/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

First off I'll just say that I am a coffee drinker, I enjoy espresso, and always have it black. This is a 'coffee' doppelbock. If you aren't a fan as I am, make sure to take my judgement on taste with a grain of salt!

It looks entirely decent, maybe a little thin for a doppelbock. Or at least thinner than I like to see. There's a tiny layer of head at first, but virtually no lacing, nothing on the glass once it recedes. Still, it looks like it means business.

Smells like coffee with a little hint of nuts and fruits. It's basically as expected, given the style and especially the name. Not the most coffee-tinted smell around (that would probably be a breakfast stout...) but strong enough to already justify its title.

Tastes almost - dare I say - refreshing. It's not so much carbonation really, but there's a zing - not a bite, mind you - to this flavor on the tip of my tongue and it's beyond that straight up coffee taste. It's also rich enough to deepen over time, winding up as quite the well rounded taste in the end.

Mouthfeel almost shows more carbonation and sheer fizziness than is really here. It's rich but thin, pleasant but nothing truly special.

I could probably drink these all night, owing as much to its welll hidden abv as to the experience of consuming it. It's got enough flavor to keep knocking 'em back and feels much lighter going down than it truly is.

I'd drink it again!

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.
