Super bitter aroma and taste with a lot of coffee notes and a slight oak note from the barrels.

Black-bodied with a diffuse chocolate colored head. Lustrous roasty notes emanate from the glass as bourbon and vanilla tendrils punch their way out. Characterized by a solid backbone of roast flavor with strong oaky and woody notes. Bourbon is impossible to miss. Almost overpowering. A potent winter brew fit for winter time consumption.

Dark as night, a wonderful example of the style!!! Let it warm up a bit for the full effect.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2009 On tap at Naked City. Pours black with a small tan head. Malty coffee aroma, huge coffee and alcohol in the taste- just a little more and you’d be drinking Kahlua. Nice thick mouthfeel, but the alcohol probably seeps through a little too much.

Bigwoodfest. Black with a tan head. Nice blackened malt aroma with dark raisons and whiskey. Smooth, rich flavor mirrors the aroma with wood cocoa and bourbon vanilla riding a roasty malt base. Very good.

Bourbon Barrel Aged The Dogfather Imperial Stout
On cask @ The Front Door Pours out a nice black topped with a small tan head. Talk about a a great aroma of sweetness and the Bourbon. Very tasty plenty of sweetness. I picked up some Vanilla, Dark chocolate, roast coffee, wood, and some more of the bourdon.
This stuff will only get better with age. I hope the alcohol will mellow a little. Better than the non aged one.
