Pours a brown body with decent head and some lace. Aroma is coffee dominant with touches of roasted malts, caramel and bread. Beer is dry and fuller bodied, not so chewy, and while alright to drink with touches of sweetness the coffee is too dominant for my liking. This isn't a criticism of the beer as much as my personal preference since I'm not a regular coffee drinker at all. To me, at least, the balance is off as the coffee aspect of this beer overpowers all the other aspects of the beer (which is sort of the point).

Pours from a bottle with a light brown (almost coffee colored) color and a healthy tan foam head. Has a nice coffee aroma. Flavor is a strong coffee with some dark chocolate and toasted malts. Body has a light to medium feel, but is smooth and goes down nice. This is an excellent coffee brew.

12 oz bottle into tulip. no bottled on information.

A: pours a chestnut hue. dark and muddy. very muddy. slightly off-white head has great retention and lacing. boatloads of lacing.

S: certainly smells of rich dark roast coffee. a lot of coffee, which I find very inviting. maybe some dark chocolate in there too. hard to tell past the coffee which is clearly the dominate aroma.

T: chocolate, roast, and certainly coffee all come into play here. the coffee is much more subdued while the doppelbock flavors come into play. hop flavor is non-existent to me. lingering bittersweet chocolate turns malty cloy into the finish.

M: pretty creamy for a doppel. not that I am hating it, just a little different and it actually works very well here. medium/full body.

D: a good coffee beer without a doubt. interesting use of a doppelbock as the backdrop, but I certainly dig it. the doppel is not overbearing and let's the coffee do most of the shining. give it a go if you dig the coffee brews.
