This year’s Dogfather Imperial Stout will all be aged in charred bourbon barrels. Seven malt varieties and subtle hop additions give it a complex flavor profile.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Had 10 oz draft at the 5th year anniversary party. Poured solid black with a frothy brown head. Aroma of mild bourbon, fruit, toffee, berry, some alcohol. Taste has lots of rich dark roasted malts that subdue the bourbon a little bit. Very silky smooth, some alcohol and bitterness in the finish.

Braudog (6175) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle. Gigantic pour of thick black beer with a towering pile of brown, tight foam on top. The aroma is as thick as chocolate milk with a stinging whiskey tinge. This drinks with an airy body (even the glass is lighter than you think it’d be). But the flavor is rich with complexity, licorice, plum, cabernet, and the requisite whiskey kick. Beautifully exquisite. (#3962, 8/7/2010)

Travlr (19481) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2010
650 ml bottle. Dark maroon, massive brown ice-cream-cone style head, solid lacing. Aroma of wood-fired pizza oven. Taste is smoky, lots of wood, some milk chocolate. OK.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2010
A-pours a viscous black liquid with a dark tan colored head, everything is thick and creamy. S-the nose has notes of smoked peat, a little ashy, dark chocolate underneath, notes of toffee and burnt coffee. T-lighter flavors, smoky and charred, notes of ash, toffee, peat, burnt coffee in the back. M-a little thin, smooth on the palate, dry and grainy in the back. D-pretty straight forward, charred and burnt malt base and not much else, a little thin and seems to fall off in the back and little to no barrel presence.

mjmcend (209) - USA - AUG 2, 2010
22 oz. Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place in Clayton, MO. Let me just say this might be the best priced Bourbon Barrel aged stout I have had. $9.99. Dark brown with a thick light brown head that lasts. Aroma is of smoke, bourbon, rye, and malt. Taste is of bourbon burning at first, followed by mellowing malts and finishes with a smoke-like sweetness. Very good.

boFNjackson (4198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom’s Third Anniversary Barrel Aged Fest... [Vintage 2009] Poured black with a light brown, bubbly head. Aroma was whisky, oaky, dark brown sugars with some roast. Chalky, cocoa, dry palate. Not as bourbony as I would hope. Creme brulee sweetness, rhubarb, ginger root, ginger bread and molasses.

angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Black pour with a rich, dark brown HUGE head. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, espresso, tons of rich coffee notes. Flavor is coffee, earthy, dirt, roast, smoke, nicotine. Pretty roasty/smoky with some nice coffee elements. Don’t get much bourbon from this though.

egajdzis (5860) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Nearly opaque black with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast, chocolate, vanilla, smoke, nuts, and bourbon. Taste of roast, dark chocolate, burnt wood, vanilla, and whiskey alcohol in the finish. Thanks to Wesley Pipes for sharing.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2010
bottle from dak on 3/21/2010. pours a dark brown shade of black with a very large cafe au lait colored head. lots of foamy lace. really roasty aroma mixed with notes of cream, coffee, bitter cocoa, vanilla, caramel and some green spiciness (hops or barrel?). the flavor is the same along with ashiness, loads of hoppy dryness and a bitterish spicy finish. not a lot of bourbon in here? creamy mouth feel is kept drinkable with ash and dryness. 7/4/7/4/15/3.7
