Appearance: Dark black with beige head Aroma: Coffee,chocolate,licorice and some hint of vanilla taste: medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour Palate:full body, thick feel, lively, bitter, Overall: one of the best imperial stouts around in my opinion

KennethArd (613) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2017
Intense aroma of sweet & salty licorice, chili, coffee & wood. Black with very low long lasting brown head. The taste is light sweet & intense dry. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation & a very long dry finish.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 330ml bottle, Dog C. Pours pitch black without head. Chilli, plum, cherry, chocolate, coffee, toast, pepper, chilli heat, sweet syrupy stuff. Thick smooth body. Really nicely balanced. Sweet, bitter with that hot peppery chilli grounding things.

Trolleo (1717) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 2, 2017
Hot warming alcohol feel, ton of chocolate chocolate liquor, lots of cocoa, licorice, vanilla and burbon. Pitch oily black with no head. Taste has that warming alcohol effect, but not burning. Burbon barrel, chocolate, bitter cocoa. Extremely creamy, full bodied and flat. Long cocoa chocolate cake finish. Close to perfection. //bottle as BrewDog Dog C

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 I drank Dog C, 3 years old. It could have been a good beer, but unfortunately there is mostly soy sauce in aroma and taste. I'm disappointed 😥

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2017 vintage 2012: Pitch black colour with a tan head. Aroma of malt, liquorice, brown sugar, molasses, coffee and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, molasses and some coffee bitterness. Balanced but with a little sting of alcohol.

DOG C Pitch black, oily, thick, no carbonation nor head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Tastes well balanced between sweet and bitter. Strong on roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, caramel, booze doesn't feel as 15%. Nothing shocking of weird, this is a classic Imperial stout, thick, oily, tasty, strong. Great beer!

Dog C Aroma is deep and complex. Coffee, stone fruit, molasses and alcohol warmth in my nose. Appearance is jet black with faint whisps of tan head around the edges. Taste delivers on the promise of the nose. Espresso with molasses. Prunes and some bitter roast malt, perhaps also some hop bitterness. Noticeable alcohol warmth. Remarkably high carbonation given the low head, succeeds in breaking the alcohol very well. Overall lighter than one would expect given the other stats. Very drinkable if you’re careful. Perfect sipping beer for in front of a fire on a cold night.

Dog c. Piwo koloru ciemno- brązowego z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana praktycznie żadna, może niewielka od razu po przelaniu do szkła. W aromacie czekolada, wanilia, wiśnie w likierze, kawa, praliny, delikatnie czuć rodzynki. W smaku kakao, kawa, wanilia, delikatny sos sojowy, gorzka czekolada, subtelny posmak ciemnych owoców, na finiszu czuć ostrość papryczek. Nie jestem fanem piw z dodatkiem chilli, ale tutaj jakoś mi nie przeszkadzało. Może taki dzień. Piwo ma wysycenie praktycznie zerowe, sporo ciała, jest bardzo złożone w zapachu i smaku, ma gładką fakturę. Stało u mnie około 1,5 roku. Z tego co pamiętam dog E mi smakował w miarę, ale był trochę za ostry, dog c podszedł mi bardziej. Polecam.

Sample from 330ml bottle. As Brewdog C. Pours black colour. Thin beige head. Aroma of bread, cocoa, chocolate, slight alcochol. Hints of berries, vanilla and smoke or peat as well. Toffee, chilli, dark chocolate, sweetness, burnt caramel in the taste. Sweetness, toffee, vanilla, brown sugar and chilli in the aftertaste. Heavy bodied, low carbonated, slightly alcocholy, quite sweet brew. Enjoyable in small amounts.
