Cuerpo intenso con 15.1 vol que se notan en todo momento y sobretodo al coger temperatura. Ligero amargo final seco algo herbaceo y resinoso. Bastante buena, intensos sabores y alcohol.

Roasted, some coffee but then cocoa and alcohol dominated the aroma, black with a good brown head, full body, carbonation is very soft, oily and thick, raisin, dates, vanilla and cocoa drown in alcohol, very intense...probably not the best irs in the world but surely a good memory.

As BrewDog Dog A, bottled on 01/04/2012. Rated on 5 February 2017 as 2000th rating. Ive chosen this as my 2000th rating because respect Brewdog so much and this beer is in my cellar for so long (its 5 years old now). 33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Nose is coffee, silghtly liquourish, wood. Body is pitch black, head is small, brownish, creamy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is tons of coffee, dark chocolate, tons of cocoa, roasted malt, light honey, vanilla, hint of chilli (rather pepper) comes later. Light sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty and later hoppy medium to heavy bitter, alcohol is hardly noticable. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Relative easy dessert beer, strong flavor, well balanced, one of the best imperial stouts Ive ever drunk, amazing.
