COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogwood Stout is a dry, Irish stout. We use a combination of roasted barley, flaked barley and chocolate malt to create a complex, textured maltiness with hints of coffee and chocolate with a rich fullness of body. We leave it unfiltered to add to its complexity. Its deep, dark mysterious color is topped off by a robust creamy head. It too is naturally carbonated. Dogwood Stout won a Silver Medal Winner at the 1997 World Beer Championships and was named one of top two microbrews in Atlanta by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Dogwood Stout is available in bottles and on tap anytime of the year.

(12oz bottle best by 5-22-03 thanks to Walt) clear dark brown with ruby edges and no bubbles. Nose of graham cracker, brown sugar, fudge. Taste of dry cocoa, unsweet chocolate, light oxidation, papery. Light body that’s uncarbonated. Past its prime.

Sampled at the ’Butter’s Last Supper’ tasting. Pours a near black with thin hint of clearish brown head. Totally buttered biscuit from Hardees ™ aroma. Flavor is candy corn, roast chocolate, marshmellow, and a little oakey. Has held up fairly well. Thanks to Sprinslicker for the hookup!

Thanks to OSCF for sharing this at his tasting! Hasn’t quite held up as well as some of the other Dogwoods I’ve had but it was a perfectly reasonable session stout. Thin, cola-ish pour with a faint prickly carbonation to it. Nice roasts still come through in the nose, though the body’s a bit too thin to substantiate the flavors at this point. Decent though.

emacgee (4093) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Nice extraction. Nose shows mild soy, chalky, chocolate, some paper. Age not doing it well. Flavor is thin, papery, chocolate, some roast and coffee. Thin palate.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2008
12 oz bottle via Mys Swap 3.0 (thanks shp555!). 2004 bottle...4 yrs old...with a Troeggs cap...She pours a near pitch black with an average size beige head. Nose is roasted grains. Taste is roasted grains, semi-burnt coffee, a little chocolate, and some licorice in the aftertaste. Body is medium, carbonation is perfect. This is nothing overly special or complex, but is a nice solid roasty stout that seems to have aged well with no oxidation or off-flavor issues.

A nice beer here, that is...who knows how old. Received in a trade with someone. Forgot exactly who sent it, but thanks. The beer was nice. As nice as a dry stout can be. Granted, it’s not one of my all-time favorite style, but this was still very nice. An aroma of coffe, in fact it damned near dominates the nose. Some light aroma of dark chocolate is barely detectable. The flavor of chocolate and coffee dominate as well. A bit of a puckering twang was also picked up, perhaps due to the malts.

Bottle thanks to shp555. 2004 edition. Pours a dark brown with a beige head that goes down pretty quick. The aroma is heavy brown sugar, some dark fruits perhaps. The taste was mostly a dry burnt malt, brown sugar, some hints of dark fruit, and overall a sweet chocolate flavor. This is a decent beer that has left us. Thanks go to Steve for sharing this.
