A: Brilliant chestnut under a 1” offwhite collar of foam that slowly dissipates to a thick film leaving art noveau lace.
S: a little coffee and bread in the nose.
T: Liquid bread, kettle sugars and coffee with a touch of hop and coffee bitterness on the finish.
M: Medfium body but light for as big as the flavors are. Medium carbonation.
O: An interesting blend of coffee with a doppelbock that works surprisingly well.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass. This unique coffee dopplebock pours a beautiful mahogany color with a fantastic light tan head and light lacing. Nose of rich DEEPLY roasted coffee, light smoke, brown sugars, and even more coffee. Flavors are up front bitter black coffee, light bready sweet malts and brown sugar to the sides, and a mild smoke character on the back with oily coffee goodness. Very coating wet aftertaste. Never seen one like this before, and truly enjoyed it's flavors of rich coffee being a strong black coffee drinker. A good finisher for an evening.

2014-11-23 -- review entered from notes.
12oz bottle poured into a little plastic hotel cup. No date that I could find on the bottle. Lots of sediment caked on the bottom.

Pours translucent brown with little head -- some carbonation. Smell is roasty malt and coffee, a little toffee. Lots of coffee.

Taste is coffee and syrup, slight smoke. Caramel.

Mouthfeel is light but a little oily. Overall, it's not bad. My wife and I agree that there's nothing outstanding or offensive about it.
