Dark Horse Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock
Dark Horse Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock is brewed with fare trade organic coffee from The Ugly Mug Cafe in Ypsilanti, MI. I was immediately looking forward to this when I unwrapped this intriguing trade extra. Coffee and Dopplebock isn’t a combo I had even considered as possible. The coffee hits your nose immediately after opening the bottle but it settles down a bit after pouring. I was expecting the coffee to overpower but it doesn’t. There is a nice mix of coffee, nutty malts, a little caramel, and the rich maltiness you’d expect from a Doppelbock. An interesting beer that I would order again if it was available here, not something I would seek out in a trade though.
