Coney Island "Barrel-Aged Human Blockhead"
Shmaltz Brewing Company - Brooklyn, New York, USA
Doppelbock (ABV 10%)

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 4.1/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a murky medium brown with a huge (3-4 finger) tan frothy head that dissipated down to a large cap of foam that lasted throughout and had some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was quite powerful of a toasted bread malt and a leathery doughy yeast with notes of molasses, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruit (plums and raisins), oak and a strong bourbon presence.

The taste was robustly sweet and very malty with notes of caramel, molasses and brown sugar throughout with a hint of dark fruit and a very pronounced bourbon note at the end. The flavor was quite a long winded with a sweet bourbon taste left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and oily, syrupy and dry in texture with a good strong carbonation.

Overall a fantastic Doppelbock, most likely the best one I have had to date...
