pkomar (526) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Very strong and complex aroma. Coffee and chocolate (smells like it was just made, really fresh). A bit of spicy aroma (maybe chillies) and some vanilla. Pours jet black with small head. Taste is incredible. Sweet, moderate bitterness, Really strong chocolate, long and noble aftertaste. Some liquor notes in there as well. Gets better as it gets warmer. Outstanding beer, best one I’ve tried so far. To sum it up: excellent ris.

330 ml. bottle. Brew Dog C. Thanks Nikos! Pours black with an average tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and licorice. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, licorice, and spice. Very tasty.

Sammy (12604) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
A big rich beer, consumed 25 months after bottling. Coconut and chocolate in the residual. Chile heat is not as apparent perhaps because of the ageing. Above average mouthfeel.

Jyrsa (906) - - JAN 28, 2015
Pitch black with a small light brown head. Chili, vanilla, licorice and burnt malt. Mouth feel is burned and has yhe chili and licorice. A long and smooth after taste.

Marko (5930) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 24, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015 Brewdog Dog B (thanks Mario!). Poured a murky brown body. Heavy malt aroma, vague, solid raisins, sweet.... Taste... Dry raisins, just a touch hot from, presumably the pepeers... dry, vaguely bitter. Not great. Definitely not great. 6/3/6/4/14

Brewdog Dog C. Fuck... I would not have went for it if I knew they were all aliases. But still... Raisins, malt, bubblegum, fresh.... Heavy malty aroma, raisins, earthy, jammy. roasty. Just a touch too warm, slightly too aggressive alcohol and maybe earthiness. Better than B. 8/3/7/3/14

SinH4 (6124) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
330ml bottle, bottled 17-06-2013. Pitch black appearance with a touch of amber. Small tan head that quickly becomes a ring. Aroma of booze, vanilla, chocolate and liquorice. Dark fruit esters, coffee as well. Taste is rich, chocolate (but not too bitter chocolate), more booze, and a very pleasant chili catch. Finish is warming. Carbonation level and the chili balance is perfect, the booze is a bit too strong. Still an excellent brew. Decanted this becomes more balanced, the alcohol becomes less irritating.

Turboninja (822) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
330 ml bottle as Dog C. Medium aroma with chili, dark fruits and some coffee notes. Black reddish color with minimal white head. In the taste the components of chili somewhat dampens other flavors like licorice, salty licorice and dark fruits. Some chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Balanced with wide/medium taste spectrum. Medium/long aftertaste with chili flavors and licorice. Full/medium body with average/soft carbonation. Overall a high-quality Imperial Stout with chili stealing the show.

Muggus69 (2671) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2015
330ml Dog C bottled 20/06/14 from Camperdown cellars Sinfully black stuff, head is the colour of cola. Staunch aroma, smells dark! Coffee & chocolate liqueur, christmas pudding, treacle, dried & dark fruits. Carbonation is low, thick, luscious, almost liqueur like texture, with comparable booziness. Body is sweet with plenty of treacle, strong brewed coffee, glace fruits, dark chocolate. Lots of booze, big bitterness, still finishes somewhat sweet. Very serious stuff, probably a bit too boozy.

Mjp12 (1971) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Dog B bottle,at cellar temp. Loads of liquorice on a aroma and flavour, the chilli hints seem to have disappeared.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a medium sized deep brown head that becomes a thin ring over time and displays really good legs. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, cocoa, chili spice, licorice, sweet caramel, and light coffee notes. Flavour is rich dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, roasted malts, chili spice(or maybe that’s how I’m perceiving the alcohol otherwise the alcohol is not present which is impressive for being over 15 abv), licorice, sweet caramel and light dark fruity esters.
