After the death of his wife, Henry Jackson Smart was left to raise his 6 young children alone. His courage, love, selflessness and dedication inspired his daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, to organize the first Father’s Day on June 19th, 1910. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established it as a permanent day of national observance.

Dad’s Little Helper Black IPA is deep mahogany in color with roasted malt and hop aromas and dense creamy head. It enters the palate with intense hop flavor and coats the tongue with a rich maltiness from the Rogue Farms Risk Malt.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Dark brown color with lasting tan sheen. Mild floral, spicy hop aromas. medium body. Dry black malt, unsweet chocolate flavors with dusty spicy hops--bitter finish--kinda blah beer

22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers. Typical black color. Average head and lace. I smell hop before anything. Malty hints. Flavors of weak pine hops, malt with a real thin body. Good news is the bitterness does linger a good duration. It’s ok,.nothing special.

Pours a metallic brown color. Smells and tastes of onion hops, pilsener malt, ash, tobacco, mint and ends with bitter characteristics of hops, caramel and bok choy.

Thanks AirForceHops. Dark brown but not as dark as expected. 3 finger head. fades slowly. Scent: Nice balance of chocolate and maple syrup. Hint of pine cones and tangerine. Taste: a bit bland..The pacman yeast is in full effect with this one. Sort of sweet, sort of bland. Very dry almost bready finish.

Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam Pours more dark red-brown than black, with hardly any head. Taste is hoppy bitter, with liquorice, finishing on a pleasant light roast. It lingers in your mouth. Nice sipper.

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2012
Tap at the Aldgate. Taste lots of chocolate and pine, maybe more roasty than bitter. Some cream but pine overload. Quite nice though. Very little notes as I was a bit battered by this stage.

jandd1983 (4330) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2012
It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate and some roasted malts with a little citrus hop. The taste was malty and chocolatey with a little mild bitterness. It was a decent Black IPA.

Yoyonono (1) - Oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 8, 2012 does not count
A very tasty brew. I get a bit of coffee, chocolate, and strong hops in the taste. The smell is amazing, very strong in the hops as well. I imagine this as the perfect fall beer. Really enjoying this one.

alobar (3793) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Pours a cola brown color with an off-white head. Aroma of bread, pine, chocolate, and citrus. Good lacing. Chocolate, roasted malt, pine grapefruit, and a hop bite at the back end. Very nice beer!

bbbrew (204) - Hawaii, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Good beer. New to this style. I get coffee. Pretty good, hopefully I get another one for fathers day again next year.
