BEER INFO

Brewed by:
BrewDog
Scotland, United Kingdom
brewdog.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 15.10%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Dog B is a very special beer. This beer will be released to commemorate our 6th anniversary in June 2013. Dog B is a beer which originally appeared as AB:04 (and then as Dog A last year) and was perhaps the sought after beer we ever brewed.

The beer will only be available to buy direct from BrewDog (at our AGM, our bars and our online shop) and will be offered exclusively to our shareholders first.
Dog B is a 15.1% Imperial Stout brewed with copious amounts of dark malts, pure cacao and coffee, balanced by the subtle addition of naga chilli. Perfect for ageing in your cellar or drinking fresh if you are lucky enough to get your paws on a bottle.

An imperial stout with specially selected Rio Caribe cocoa nibs, Sertao Carmo de Minas coffee and naga chillies.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 6/17/13.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and chile heat on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the chile peppers used in this one don't really add anything other than a lingering heat on the palate.
