COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I got a brew you canít 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.

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - JUN 4, 2013
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. Iím 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 (483) - 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..

Joelly3d (39) - Kentucky, USA - MAR 30, 2013
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
