4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: pitch black, dense, with a solid dark brown head. OK lacing.
Aroma: very intense, coming straight from the bottle and fills the room. Alcohol strikes first, then comes the roastiness and hints of dark chocolate and cocoa with some coffee in the background. Canít smell the chili.
Taste: again, first comes the alcohol, however that shouldnít bother you at all, because it combines well with everything that comes in second, everything being quite intense roastiness, dark chocolate and coffee. So pretty much it tastes as it smells, but itís soooo good. No chilli again, however Iím a big chilihead so maybe itís just too weak for me, even though they used Naga Jolokia, a chili that for a long time was considered the hottest one on Earth. Bitterness is quite high, coming more from the alcohol than from hops, but itís still very nice.
Mouthfeel: very soft carbonation, almost flat. Full bodied.
Overall: very good Imperial Stout. Didnít try the new, Dog B version, but this one is really good. Beer was bottled on 01.04.2012 so I have no idea if it was supposed to be more hoppy or what, itís been almost 2 years after all. Still, Iím glad Iíve tried this one and Iím looking forward to Dog B.
Enjoyed from a teku glass.

Great beer, too bad that you can not give the vote to Bredwog B since the latter is slightly different and better than A.

Rating #962 - February 9, 2014 - Opened this for #beerguychrisgeekbeer #week6 and for the return of @AMCís The Walking Dead. $23.10 CAD for a 330ml bottle from Sherbrooke. Aroma is alcohol, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted java grinds. Palate is a sweet spicy mix of chocolatey chili vanilla goodness with an out of this world balance of sweet, booze, and bitter. The highest of praise, and my first 5.0 of 2014. #5whore
