Tsk tsk, TC. This totally should have been called radpidator or paddlator or some other made up word with ator at the end.

Pours a deep black with a deep tan head. OK lacing. Bonus points there, too many "dopplebocks" are too light in color IMO. Nose is toffee with hints of caramel and coffee. Taste is roasted coffee forward, and really seems to miss the dopplebock sweetness. Mouth feel is spot on though, super crisp and refreshing.

Overall, a fine beer, but the lack of sweetness on the palate with refreshing quality pushes it more towards the taste profile of a porter than a dopplebock to me.

12 oz bottle.

pours a very dark brown, almost black. nice pleasant rich malt aroma, a bit nutty. same with the taste. smooth and nice flavor, but one-note, not overly complex. easy to drink for a stronger beer. on the thicker side, low to medium carbonation level.

A - So far so good a deep shade of ruby red brown with a nice 1/4 inch of mocha head.
S - Not much caramel or biscuit malt. In a way stout like with chocolate and brown malts.
T - Really all over the place chocolate, roast, coffee, brown malts, molasses, and a slight sweet caramel finish.
M - Fairly smooth its big ABV is masked well. Easily the best part of the beer.

Overall it kind of tasted like the porter I had from them but it should have been a bock. Lower score since it's no on par with the style.
