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.

OK, traded my friend for this one. Here goes:

A: Not good or bad. Pours a huge head that leaves a ton of lacing on the glass. However, the beer is pours a cloudy brown that doesn't look too nice.

S: Very nutty coffee smell. Caramel malt, nuts, coffee grinds, etc. Somewhat off, however, as there appears to be some sourness in the background.

T: Good, taste rather follows the smell. Sweet, nutty taste with bitter coffee and caramel.

M: Glides down the tongue rather nicely, but I've tasted more filling beers at the same ABV.

O: A good beer. Probably won't be getting again, though.
