This is a true dopplebock and Dark Horse Brewings only publicly distributed lager. It was so normal that we couldnt stand it so we made it into a coffee dopplebock. Ha, take that Germany, with your Reinheitsgebot purity law! Anyway, we use fair trade organic coffee from our friends at The Ugly Mug Cafe in Ypsilanti, MI We did a label contest and opened it up to the public for this beer. We had so many awesome entries that we couldnt just pick one winner so we have 2 labels for this beer. We stagger the bottles in the six packs but with no order in mind.

Pours deep amber, almost red, with a minimal head, which is surprising because this beer is very carbonated. Strong coffee aroma and light, carbonated, refreshing palate. Bitter at the end. Overall a good Fall beer.

ciocanelu (2235) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 23, 2015
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 its not a pleasant coffee taste, its 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.

pivnizub (10520) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2015
Lahev: Cloudy, amber coloured, smaller lacy off-white head; solid coffeeish and roasty nose, nutty and caramelly, too, accompanied by tannic and port-vinous aromas; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, quite soft; lingering - again - dryish coffeeish and vinous and bitter-malty finish. Very, very good

Excalibur123 (474) - Soria, SPAIN - APR 22, 2015
Vierte mbar con abundante cabeza de espuma y buena retencin; aromas a cuero, caramelo, malta tostada y ligero caf; en boca entrada media y licorosa con notas dulces, ciruelas y pasas y especias; cuerpo y carbnico medios en un estilo alemn con un toque de caf; pos gusto largo, maltoso y dulce bien balanceado, aunque hay un sabor no reconocido que resulta un tanto extrao.

MPA (997) - Amager (form. Nrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle (BBF 01.10.14). Dark amber with a large beige head. Sweet aroma of plums, dates, cocoa, caramel and coffee. Flavour is sweet with notes of plums, cocoa and coffee. Some bitterness, but the finish is mostly coffee and plums. Vinous with an intense aroma and a highly drinkable beer.

Four pack courtesy of Katie. Smell is really nice. Coffee is intense. Appearance is burnt caramel. Very crisp flavor profile, I guess I dont drink much lager. Coffee is underwhelming. the head sticks around forever, which I like.

Camons (11978) - Hasselager, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle @ Studenterhuset, rhus. Pours dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, caramel, bread, wood, but also a strong vegetables note that i offen get in coffee beers. Flavor is light sweet, malty, caramel, bread, nuts, nice strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation, some warming alcohol. For me taste is alot better than aroma here, no veggies. 251014
