This collaborative project from Beau’s All Natural Brewing and Bridgehead Coffee brings together a strong doppelbock beer and a blend of three flavourful organic fair-trade coffees to create a bold taste and aroma.

History & Style

The base beer for this offering is a traditional dark German doppelbock, brewed to 8% abv. Coffee was steeped in the kettle after boiling to add a whole new dimension of complex flavours.

Lubiere (14579) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
A hazed brown bock with a thick receding brown head. In aroma, sweet fruit carmale with dark fruits and coffee, resinous and pleasant. light woody character, surprising. In mouth, nice caramel malt with good mocha coffee, sweet, caramelly, and pleasant. Bottle is about 2 years old and still going strong.

cfrancis (3712) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours dirty brown with a small off white ring. Aroma is a ton of coffee and some smoke. Taste coffee, lots of coffee which overshadows a lot of the other flavours.

Bouteille 600mL. Cuivrée-brune semi-translucide. Nez faible de café glacé. Corps moyen à mince. Bouche de café dilué avec un peu de chocolat et une pointe de caramel. Bof.

Pours a slightly hazy brown colour with a small off white ring around the glass. Aromas of coffee mostly(seems a bit sour), and chocolate. Flavours are coffee(slightly sour, dry, and bitter), some sweetness, chocolate, and toffee.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a murky brown color with a creamy off white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate & coffee; however the coffee aromas almost seem stale or bad. Taste is loads of coffee and chocolate that blend together fairly well and leaves a good bitterness on the finish as well as an altering combination of chocolate sweetness as well. Very smooth for 8%.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
600ml bottle. Large tan head, dark brown amber colour. Smell is strong, good quality coffee. Taste is pretty much just coffee. but it was really good. Alcohol was masked really well. Overall, it lacks complexity but it was really tasty.
