I got a brew you can’t 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.

Drought. Inky black with very small tan head that dissipates quickly, coffee aroma, bitter coffee taste with berries in the background, long finish. Good solid stout but a bit too coffee-bitter.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours a jet black with a full 2 finger mocha head S - Dark cocoa, roasted black malt, toasted wheat bread crust, toasted sugar. Some sour artificial grape along with alcohol vapors. T - Moderate cocoa powder coats the entire mouth. Heavily roasted malts, hazelnut, brown sugar, backed with a peppery hop bitterness. Some espresso comes out towards the finish. M - Full bodied, but too much carbonation. I’m digging the intense chocolate and the hops mixes with the espresso flavors to add nice bitterness. It starts out sweet but turns pretty dry toward the finish. It could use a little less carbonation. Great flavors overall. Serving type: bottle 12-23-2010

HeadyDE (424) - Delaware, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pitch black pour into snifter..substantial dark brown head..aroma of dark chocolate..espresso..French vanilla coffee..molasses..quite roasty with perhaps a note of some wood....medium body..slight chalkiness with some black cherry on finish..no real trace of the extremely high abv..surprisingly quite drinkable..texture is not really as full as expected..which is probably the biggest issue with this..

Pours black with very little head. Perfect aroma, not floral but smells of caramel and fermented fruit tones. Tastes the same caliber as much more expensive beers. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jrgratz (113) - New York, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Tap at Monks alehouse.. Pour is jet black with a nice brown head. Smell is roasted malts, slight citrus, some chocolate. A bit sweet. Taste is excellently balanced.. a complex malt blend.. roasted.. and a nice hoppy compliment. Very well executed. Coffee on the finish. Overall really enjoyed this one.

Beerenberger (1265) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Aroma of roasted malts and a slight hint of vinilla. Pours a rich black with a mostly lasting, dark tan head and sticky lacing. The taste is bitter. Roasted malts, oak, a little alcohal, and a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Full bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable imperial stout.

madvike (2581) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Tasted blind. Deep black with a big foamy tan head. Sour dark malt and light baking spice. A bit of sharp heat and astringency. Taste is sour and odd—dark and roasty, with more baking spice, sour tartness, and a bit of dark chocolate/coffee on the finish. Pretty thin and watery…just odd tasting.

Pours deep dark black with a small fluffy dark tan head. Aroma is roast, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet with some tartness from the roast. Full bodied with a smooth and creamy texture, some warming on the finish however the alcohol is well hidden.
