3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours jet black with a frothy espresso-like head. Nose is coffee, dark chocolate, dark-roasted grain, a bit of woodiness, and a hint of Cheerios. Boozy flavor with heavy, dark sweetness, like molasses, a touch of grassiness. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy although a touch thinner than I expected. Mild carbonation. Very tasty brew!

Very good beer that leaves you wanting nothing else out of this well balanced stout. Rich,full flavored and robust. Pour is black with a medium tan head. Aroma is coffee,malts and chocolate. Flavor are about the same as the aroma with bitterness added.

bomber - The Dogfather will sneak up and spill everywhere if your watch out man. Pours black with huge cardboard colored head. Nose is sour??? Flavor adds roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, and something that makes me think this is infected. Bitter like dark chocolate. After read some other reviews, the odd taste is either licorice or dark fruits. Some sweetness, but not that much, people.

Bottle from10/12, just over a year old.
Smells very sweet, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, malt. Very nice. There’s something hard to pick out, maybe some dark dried fruit, some cereal...something!
Tastes the same! Chocolate, malt, bourbon, and something indescribably sweet. Some coffee. The sweetness comes out more as it warms. Could just be like candied bourbon. Very smooth, very good.

From 22oz bottle.
Pours very dark with brown head. Aroma was (?)soapy(?) - but I have a cold so take that with a salt-lick... Tastes of mocha and malt, with slightly bitter aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 vintage, little over a year old. Pours black with a medium creamy brown head, almost fully lasting with great lace. Lovely aroma; chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, dark and red fruits with some good sweetness and something that reminds me of sour woodiness which I feel is mostly just a blending of the various components. Same can said for the flavor Medium body. Great finish, creamy chocolate, coffee, with a perfect layer of bourbon. Sitting it down for a year did some fantastic things. Took the alcohol heat down few notches, some warmth in the finish. Smooth.
