A hallmark of graphene is its unusual conical band structure that leads to a zero-energy band gap at a single Dirac crossing point. By measuring the spectral function of charge carriers in quasi-free-standing graphene with angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, we show that at finite doping the well-known linear Dirac spectrum does not provide a full description of the charge-carrying excitations. We observe composite ?plasmaron? particles, which are bound states of charge carriers with plasmons, the density oscillations of the graphene electron gas. The Dirac crossing point is resolved into three crossings: the first between pure charge bands, the second between pure plasmaron bands, and the third a ring-shaped crossing between charge and plasmaron bands.
