2013 22 oz bomber poured into a snifter
A: Black with a foamy light brown head. Nice lacing from the point where poured and head is retained throughout consumption.
S: Chocolate, oak, light bourbon
T: Chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts, milky sweetness, bourbon
M: Full bodied, syrupy, nice warming alcohol, slight bitterness. Very nicely balanced.
O: Absolutely solid barrel aged stout (especially for the price). I can't say necessarily that anything was lacking for me...just that compared to some others BBA stouts it came up a bit short in aroma and forwardness of the bourbon's impact in flavor. That may be a blessing in disguise for this concoction because it comes out extremely balanced for me and is extremely drinkable.

super creamy, chocolate-milk head. nice coating along the sides. roasty and toasty malt, chocolate. slight nuance of bourbon in the aroma. definite bourbon-chocolate flavors, kind of like those little chocolates you get at Christmas time, yet without the sweet liquid center. maybe a little coffee bitterness, but not a lot of coffee flavor.
the appearance and the aroma are the highlights of this one. the flavor isn't bad, just a little chalky and bitter, but it does drop off from the excited expectations after the pour. maybe it's the abv coming through.... I was eager to try this one after tasting the Mogli! overall, it's still a very decent brew.

Bottle into snifter
Appearance - Pure black, 1 finger white sandy colored head leaving a ring once settled
Smell - Roasted milk chocolate, coffee with cream and bourbon.
Taste - Dark chocolate to start, leading you in to a roasty coffee flavor with bitterness from the initial chocolate flavor. Alcohol at the end with definite bourbon flavors. Woody, smoky and balanced nicely.
Mouthfeel - Medium to heavy carbonation, full bodied, thick, satisfying but not quite refreshing.
Overall - I thought this beer was good. I was surprised to find out how much this beer carries chocolatey characteristics in the nose and taste. It's the first time I've had a Dogfather and I will defintely be buying it again.
