COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I got a brew you cant refuse. The Dogfather is one of the biggest brew we have ever made, weighing in a 10.85% alcohol. 7 malts and 4 hops give it a complex flavor profile. Over 11 month in the making some of the DogFather has been barrel aged. This is a very limited release with only 40 keg equivalents in draft and only 300 case made.

Bottle from 5000. Bottle. Black pour wtih a fairly small head. Aroma is roated malt with some chocolate. Flavor has some chocolate but finishes with some weird medicinal properties. A bit astringent. Still a pretty good beer, but not quite what I expected. Oh well.

22 oz bottle provided by HomeBrewHawk. Pour is black brown, hazy, with a smallish tan head. Aroma of muted cocoa chocolate maltiness. Nose is a little acidic, with a little bit of sharpness. Taste is syrup fruit sweetness, milky lactic coffee, with acidity that lingers. Palate is medium and coating, featuring a long long finish. The sum of the parts come together to build a better beer than I would have expected. Thanks for bringing this one Pete!

22oz bottle from 5000, thank you Andre. Very dark and thick pour, had a nice chocolate head. Roasty, coffee aroma. Very smooth and easy to drink, mild bitterness in the finish, pretty decent.

Black body with an orange and tan colored head. The aroma was raisins and milk chocolate. There was also some pancake character. The taste was coffee and pancakes. There was also some syrup.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2009
I definitely couldnt refuse this one for $3.99 a bomber. But then I thought "BA RIS for four bucks? This beer has to suck." But Its pretty decent. Pours opaque blackish brown with a thick and lacy tan head. Coffee, chocolate and molasses nose, with just a bit of pine. Creamy full body and fine carbonation. Bittersweet taste of coffee, dark chocolate, raisin vanilla custard. Smoky, almost ashy espresso finish, with a bit of pine going along for the ride.

(22oz. bottle) Pours a dark brown (near black) body with a small creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, citrus, coffee, light pine, and soy. Flavor of roasted malt, soy, and coffee with a creamy mouthfeel and a bitter finish.

Thanks to Beerlando for the taste. Pours dark with a tan head. Nose is surprisingly hoppy and woody, along with the typical stout flavors of coffee and cocoa. Flavor follows suit. The hops and barrel aging come through most in the flavor, followed by a bit of creamy vanilla espresso. This is a solid stout, which I think would get better with a little more age to mellow the hops.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bomber. Pours a deep dark mahogany color that appears virtually black. A small, creamy, khaki colored head leaves some nice lacing bands on the glass. Aromas include chocolate and mocha in the forefront, with hints of espresso and plenty of dark caramel malt. Traces of vanilla and oak enter the fold as well, perhaps along with a wisp of bourbon. Flavors are on the sweet side, burnt caramel sugars and medium-dark chocolate showing well. Oak and vanilla lend a creaminess to the taste, while a nice, twangy bourbon notes comes through on the finish. The body is substantial, but a little disappointing for an imperial stout of this stature. Still, it is smooth and the alcohol is well concealed. Very nice brew overall.
