DogZilla comes to crush your taste buds with lots of hops. It does not fail. It also give you so some roasty. Mostly hops though. I think it wants to be a barleywine. Maybe more like a baby barleywine. Like a baby barleywine that forgot some of its specialty grains at home when it went to go brew itself. That sounds like an insult, but it’s not. This is a very nice beer. quiznoaz (310) - Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Beautiful brown pour; the head looks like a rootbeer float, creamy and fluffy and lasting forever. Hint of coffee and caramel in aroma and flavor. I had this after another IPA and was used to the hoppiness, so the sweetness beyond stood out. dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Picked this up since I’ve never seen or heard of this brewery, glad I did though, great hop aroma, and then the pour is a really dark brown with a long lasting foamy head. Hop flavors up front but balances out smooth with the extra malt. This has great balance and is amazingly smooth. I will defintitely purchase again.

Predictably black pour with a huge tan head. Aroma is hoppy but has a big hit of malts. Flavor is smooth and nicely hopped and the malt come though very strong.
Overall very good beer. radioseer (300) - Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2011
(22 ounce bomber - tumbler) Pours a 2 finger size head with a thick lacing, also has a nearly opaque dark brown color. Tastes of chocolate, toffee, toffee, crystal malt and possibly chinock or cascade hops. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation.

Poured from the bottle into my Samuel Adams glass. Pour produced a dark amber / toffee colored body, topped by a generous head to off-white foam, with nice lacing overall. A slightly spicy, citrusy nose with some malt undercurrent. Sour and bitter tastes thoughout the tasting, shocasing a strong citrus profile in it’s overall flavor. A medium bodied ale with a bitter roasted aftertaste. I am not sure this is balance enough of an IPA to make me go out of my way for it. p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Looks brownish black. Smells mostly hoppy with a hint of dark malts. Tastes pretty good. Balanced for a American Black but not amazing hatchattack (255) - Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Draught at Capital Ale House. aroma of coffee and roasted malts. poured a dark, black color. taste: coffee, caramel, roasted malts, and then bitterness at end from hops. nice clean finish CopterScott (254) - Kansas, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Dark brown with and enormous chunky off-white head that persists. malty aroma with some hopes. Flavor is roasted malt with some floral and pine hops. Starts out very fizzy but calms down to medium carbonation.
