3.62/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Dimpled Mug.

Appearance: Murky brown with thin light brown head.

Smell: Cold-pressed coffee, vanilla and caramel. Simple but nice.

Taste: Unique mix of coffee and a malty Doppelbock with caramel, cherry and other fruits. Light vanilla as well. Makes it taste more like flavored coffee. Some spicy noble hops on the finish, along with some lingering coffee. Slightly medicinal aftertaste.

Feel: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Off-dry finish.

Overall: Bonus points for the unique experience, but ultimately it comes across as flavored coffee with some out-of-place noble hops. I guess there is a reason most add coffee to Porters and Stouts.

12 oz. bottle, served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a semi hazy dark brown with a 1 finger of off white head. No real lace was left down the glass.

S: Coffee grinds, bready malts, and a touch of cocoa and smoke.

T: Bitter and smokey coffee grinds hit you upfront, but this smooths out into a nice sweet chocolate middle. The finish is a more sweetness with a some vanilla and caramel. Well I'm glad this wasn't infected.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation and sweet finish. With all the flavors going on in the taste I wanted a little more body as well.

O: Very surprised some of the great sweet notes that came out of this guy. A little more body would have added some good depth to help the flavors stick around for a little while longer.

Pours a two-finger light tan head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Opaque dark brown color, yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Roasted coffee nose and flavor follows - a good, almost sweet roasted coffee. $2.95 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

A - Hazy, traditional looking amber doppelbock body. A creamy, sturdy beige head ontop. Looks like it has a viscous body.

S - Tons of fresh coffee notes. Sweet, roasted cofee, bitter coffee beans, and a malty backdrop.

T - Again, the coffee is prominent. A mouthful of delicious ground coffee, some roasted, some bitter, some black. A sweetness like lactose. Some faint malt character in the finish but the coffee is overpowering here.

M - Medium bodied, bitter and drying. A light carbonation to help the balance.

O - This is a good beer. Excellent if youre looking for or like full coffee flavors. This isn't nearly a traditional doppelbock for me, but an interesting twist if you accept it.
