shigadeyo (3026) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

6/30/2011: The Dogfather Imperial Stout (Aged in old Bourbon Barrels)... Aroma: Semi-sweet chocolate; Appearance: Extremely deep brown color (almost black) with a large, reverse-cascading brown-colored head. Flavor: Semi-sweet chocolate blended with red wine, over-cooked bacon (carbonized) - actually, I’ve place the flavor as PORK RINDS (especially in the finish and aftertaste); absolutely no bourbon, oak, vanilla, or similar is evident. Palate: Medium-bodied; smooth. Overall: Another WEIRD brew; I’ll pass on a second sample!

22 Fluid once bottle (ALC. 10.5% by Vol.) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #248 for this beer.

Bottle thnx to lionsandbeer, shared @WWT III. Pours a pitch black, headless beer with an aroma of bourbon, licorice and malts. Some roastiness detected. Flavour is sweet, returning loads of of the bourbon and alcohol. Definitely a great balanced beer, awesome crafted. This is great

Bottle @ WWT3 after. Black pour, foamy tan head. Aroma is roasted, slightly spicy, a hint of brett, bourbon and some fruits. Flavor is spicy roasted and peaty with some vanilla and slightly sharp. Heavy and interesting.

AWISLguy (1341) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bomber from Sendiks in Brookfield, aged 6 months, shared with ck1. Pours chunky black with a tan head. Some drops of lace. Aroma has oak and chococaramel. With bourbon Taste is of bakers chocolate, roasted malt, and oak. Medium to full bodied. Finishes sweetly bitter and oak-y. With some length. Shrug, liked the chocolate oak blend - similar to a Oaked Yeti. It was good, bit not quite as good as I was expecting/hoping.

drjay44 (2672) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, mocha head , with moderate lacing, over a black (SRM 40) body.....nose is Bourbon, chocolate coffee, light toffee/caramel.....taste is light Bourbon, chocolate, sweet toffee.caramel leading to light plum ,raisin, moderate hop bitterness with roasted malt bite......mouth feel thick, creamy, slightly sticky, slightly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds to creamy texture. The Bourbon was done with a relatively light hand, and, as such, adds to the malt backbone complexity. The heavy malts are balanced back by the roasted malt and hop bitterness. It is light on the umami aspect of Imperial Stouts. BJCP 8/3/15/5/8

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Ashur Liquor: Appeared dark black used motor oil with a thick rising foam cap which eventually fluffed out of existence. Aroma was faint with minor traces of light roast malt and earthy wood. The drink is strong with boozy bourbon whiskey flavors and it shows on my blood alcohol level as I am feeling very buzzed on only one bomber.

Deep dark body with caramel tan head - good lacing. The barrel flavors come through nicely without being overpowering. Wonderful beer - cheers to the folks at Laughing Dog. Nicely done

arkurzynski (1543) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Deep black pour with orange-tan head. Nose smells like cheap vanilla, licorice, degraded hops, brown sugar, toffee, spearmint, and faint bourbon. Flavor is a deep roasted malt with plenty of bitter chocolate/cacao nibs, light licorice, and a dry oaky/faint bourbon finish. Gritty, big mouthfeel. Was surprised by the flavor on this one and at the price, certainly was a steal.
