Hazy dark amber color with light brown head. Aroma is really malty with a bit of caramel and coffee notes. Taste starts also malty with a bit of coffee but it's not a pleasant coffee taste, it's somehow bitter and stale. Slightly on the sweet side, just slightly roasty and bitter on the finish. Body is quite light and effervescent and the alcohol is quite present. Not bad but not really my type of beer.

Deep in color and almost coffee brown is the body. Head is a creamy fluff of light tan bubbles reaching almost two fingers tall. Retention is nice and leaves a solid wall of lace. Nose is lovely with tones of coffee beans, coco, and mineral based malts. As I take first sip I notice that the coffee feel has faded considerably since it was fresh. Dark malts with some phelonic spice such as graham cracker and mineral notes are more prominent now. Quite hollow in terms of complexity at this point. An odd spice hue stays on the back of the tongue and leaves a dry mouthfeel. This is overall very easy to drink.

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.
