COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big porter named for our Chief Brewers favorite dog! The dog was found in a dumpster and turned out to be one of the most complex animals Mike ever had. The porter shares this complexity with its masterful melding of chocolate, toffee, and roasted flavors.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma of charred, roasted malt, chocolate malt. Flavor of roasted malt, light char, chocolate malt. Hearty palate, lots of roast, but still pleasantly drinkable. Nice solid porter, good representation of the style. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

BrettTaylor (483) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
dark reddish brown, little head, little lacing. Coffee and maybe something green on nose. A lot of coffee, some chocolate on palate. This was a little overbalanced to dark coffee flavors and the mouthfeel was a bit thin.

Growler provided by ygtbsm94. Thanks! Poured a dark brown color with some roasted malts, some chocolate notes. Mild sweet malt notes. This was okay but it was a little thin unfortunately.

Thanks, Brad! Nose has mill chocolate an a but of roast. Flavor has more roast and a bit of an acrid finish. Body too thin.
