Morning! How were your holidays? Have the Three Wise Men brought you gifts? We have many gifts from them and they even leave a gift for you all: Dark Horse! The beers are here and you have them available in the online shop from now.
So, today we are going to finish with Dark Horse. In the first post about Dark Horse, we told you who Dark Horse was and how it was born. Moreover, we dropped some pieces of bread for you to know how their beers are. Now, we are going to show you all the available beers. The ones we told you in the other post and the new ones. Here you have everything, together with the links:
Crooked Tree IPA
Crooked Tree by Dar Horse is a IPA craft beer heavily dry hopped to give it a big aroma of pine and citrus. The flavors are big, yet very balanced between fresh hops and malt. Often described as “grapefruit,” our hops give this beer an excellent citrus flavor that finishes dry, crisp, and clean. Due to our unique dry-hopping methods it has won several medals in the India Pale Ale category.
Raspberry Ale (with raspberries added)
Raspberry Ale by Dark Horse is an Ale craft beer with added raspberries. This beer is a light bodied, easy drinking ale. We use real raspberries late in fermentation, giving this beer a mild fruit flavor while keeping a very balanced malt profile.
Reserve Special Black Ale
The Reserve Special Black Ale by Dark Horse is a Porter craft beer. It is the oldest beer in the Dark Horse portfolio. This beer is dark, flavours of malt-roast and chocolate. The Reserve Special Black Ale drinks like a porter and finishes like a stout, so it fits nicely into the category of a delicious strong black ale.
Belgian Style Amber Ale
Belgian Style Amber Ale by Dark Horse is an Amber Ale craft beer. While the malt and hops give this beer an amazing copper color, medium body, and a smooth mouth feel; it’s the yeast that sets this one apart from other amber ales. Inspired by Belgium’s beer, this beer has a little Belgian touch by using an “almost Belgian” yeast strain producing similar esters and flavors commonly found in more traditional Belgian beers
Dark Horse Boffo Brown
Boffo Brown is a favorite to many of us here at the brewery. Like most of our beers, it’s robust full body and soft mouth feel is pushing the envelope of what an American Brown Ale is to most people. Flavors begin with malt, caramel, toffee, and finish with a nutty, mild earthiness.
Dark Horse Scotty Karate Scotch Ale
Scotty Karate Scotch Ale by Dark Horse is an Ale craft beer. For those of you who don’t know who “Scotty Karate” is… He is a local one man band who plays an amazing slurry of honky-tonk influenced, punk-country songs. A big bold musician deserves a big bold beer, that’s why Scotty and our Scotch Ale are a perfect tribute to one another. Scotty Karate is brewed with cherry wood smoked malt instead of the traditional peat smoked malt offering up warming notes of coffee, caramel and sweet caramelized brown sugar. Scotty finishes earthy giving this beer a character all it’s own, just like the man himself.

Dark Horse 4 Elf Winter Warmer
4 Elf by Darh Horse is an Ale craft beer. Spicy aromas like cinnamon and clove. Balanced between malt, hops, and spice at 8.75% ABV.
Dark Horse Scary Jesus Rockstar
Scary Jesus Rockstar by Dark Horse is a Pale Ale craft beer. This collaboration beer made with Chef Cleetus Friedman of Chicago’s Fountainhead will save your soul and then melt your face off. Aromas of chamomile. A tasty riff of sweet and earthy fresh apricots hit your palate and rock your tastebuds finishing dry and hoppy.
Dark Horse Tres Blueberry Stout
Number three in our stout series, this stout is full-bodied and brewed with all malted barley and fresh blueberries added after fermentation. The nose is where you will begin to realize this stout is in a league of its own. Blueberry, chocolate and roasted aromas lead the way to a very pleasant drinking experience which leaves you wanting the next November to arrive sooner than last year.
Dark Horse Plead the 5th
Plead the 5th by Dark Horse is a Russian Imperial Stout craft beer. Our Russian Imperial Stout is pitch black in color with a faint tan head that immediately identifies this beer as BIG. Aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, caramel and roast also make it even bigger. Roasted coffee and fruity chocolate notes are just the beginning of this beers complex flavor. You have the right to enjoy or remain silent (ha, ha!)
Dark Horse One Oatmeal Stout
One Oatmeal by Dark Horse is an Oatmeal Stout. Number one in a series of five stouts produced to help ease you through the cold and grey Midwestern winters. This beer is full bodied and made with oats. You will find hints of chocolate, roasted barley, and coffee flavors.
Dark Horse Fore Smoked Stout
Number four in our stout series, this beer is brewed with all malted barley and hardwood smoked malt. Aromas of smoked chocolate and coffee leave way to a full-bodied stout with a smokey finish.
