Brew of the day, that I’m actually having this evening, is Dark Horse Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock. I’ve had two bottles of this stuff sitting on the shelf in my basement for awhile now and thought it was time to open one up and give it a try. I’m actually pretty surprised at this. I thought the body would be heavier but its fairly light (to go along with a “light” 7.50% alcohol content) and the color is not at all what I expected. Appears to be a fairly clear reddish brown with no head to speak of. Flavor-wise the coffee is front-and-center. There is certainly no doubt this is an ale brewed with coffee 😉
Overall its a pretty good beer. I don’t think I’d go out of my way to buy it again but I’m certainly enjoying this one.
