UPDATED: MAR 13, 2017 Reddish black pour, smaller offwhite head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, char aroma. Dark chocolate up front, chocolate syrup, light char, nuts, wood, roasted malt. Medium body. Overly rich. AWISLguy (3283) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2017
16oz can from Bottles & Cans. Pours a very dark brown with a large foamy off-white head leaving coats of lace. Aroma has big roasted coffee, molasses, light caramel and dark chocolate. Taste is of big chewy roasted malts; coffee, caramel, dark chocolate. Some tootsie roll here, if a more coffee presence was added. A bit stronger than medium bodied, with a bit of alcohol. The blend is solid and the carbonation is soft. Finishes very well blended between bitter and sweet. This is quite good and tasty. The original, and probably the best. 14.3 Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Sample at Paddy Long’s in Chicago. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium thick beige head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing. The aroma is malty with coffee and chocolate notes. Medium boy with flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and subtle hops in the background. The finish is roasty with a malty aftertaste. Pretty good overall. Cousin_Larry (895) - - JUN 10, 2016
Sample at WOBFest 2016. Pretty much picked it due to the comical name, but it ended up being a nice, light porter with a big chocolate and coffee flavor. Good surprise.
