COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"This ainít your Dadís malt liquor" - Brewmaster John Maier After the death of his wife, Henry Jackson Smart was left to raise 6 young children alone. His courage, love, selflessness and dedication inspired his daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, to organize the First Fatherís Day on June 19th, 1910. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Fathers Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established it as a permanent day of national observance. Dadís is brewed with Harrington and Klages malts, Flaked Corn, Crystal Hops, Free Range Coastal Water, and Czech Pils Yeast. Available in the spring of 2005 in the classic 22-ounce Rogue micropiece. Measurements: 17 degrees Plato, IBU 25, Apparent Attenuation 77, Lovibond 10 degrees.

It wasnít that bad people, was it? Pours a murky black with nice little off white head. Aroma is of pine, liquorice, spice and roasted malts. Tastes of burnt malts, dark bitter chocolate, dark coffee, pine. Has a medium body with a slick mouth feel. Has low carbonation. I was waiting to say this, but this tastes like breakfast gone bad, burnt coffee and grapefruit. Mind you I would still eat this breakfast.

"the corn and yeast make this a rather unique, if not incredible beer. worth a try, but i drank it with mixed results. better than i thought it would be...weird sweet aftertaste (good)...lacking in body."

Light creamy dark malt aroma... Dark amber in color... Flavor is fairly bland, creamy malts, dark roasted malt bitterness... Not much balance, boring ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bomber that looked like it had been floating around in an old cooler for ages, despite being right off the shelf. Smelled like piss, looked like piss, can only assume this is what piss tastes like. I would be pissed off, but I didnít pay for it. This seems like a joke from Rogue. Forced it down for the ABV.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, shared with my dad, ironically enough. Hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grass, slight caramel, cardboard, lots of caramelized sugars and toffee. Taste is a mix of sweet corn, caramel, toffee, slight biscuit, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bomber---->lager glass. Pours a deep orange with little head and no lace. Aroma is sweet grainy caramel. Taste is sweet yellow corn, caramel, and a tad bit of floral hop. Very little carbonation and kind of silky on the tongue. Not very impressive, but it is a malt likka afterall.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! A: Clear and yellow. There is a moderately sized head of white bubbles that leaves a small amount of lacing. Lots of bubbles emanating from the depths of the glass indicate a healthy level of carbonation. S: Weak aroma overall with some subtle sweet malts. T: Surprisingly, this is a decent beer. Itís not that I donít have a healthy respect for Rogue Brewery, I just didnít expect a malt liquor to not be repulsive. Dadís Little Helper has helped me to adjust my paradigm. Itís sweet, but not nearly so much as many of the infamous, cheap malt liquors out there. M: Overall, a decent feel. Fun to drink and ok on the palate. D: Easily the best malt liquor Iíve had to date.
