The Dogfather Imperial Stout brewed by Laughing Dog Brewing

The Dogfather Imperial Stout brewed by Laughing Dog Brewing - Ponderay, Idaho      

The Dogfather is a combination of 7 malts and 4 hop varieties that makes this a beer you can't refuse. Pours a pillowy mocha head with an intense chocolate/mocha nose. Get ready for a full bodied beer with intense dark cocoa, espresso, caramel that has a silky creamy finish with a cleansing hop bitterness. 10.85% ABV, 90 IBU's.

The Dogfather Imperial Stout

Beer Review by Beer Advocate:

Pours a viscous dark, almost pitch black color from a 22 oz bomber, with ABV on the label.

Massive head with the upper half khakhi colored and the lower half really dark brown/mocha colored. The head dissipates slowly to a thin film that stays, good head retention.

Aroma is all chocolate, there are huge chocolate notes that overpower any other aroma trying to make it's presence felt. Wow, very rarely have I come across a brew with so much chocolate in the nose, this is massive.

Taste is all chocolate, right from the front to the finish. It just feels like melted silky milky chocolate filling from a Lindt milk chocolate truffle. There is just a slight trace of bitterness in the finish which is akin to dark cocoa. Extremely full-bodied and silky on the palate. The alcohol is also masked very well. Hard to tell this is a beer that has almost 11% ABV.

There aren't enough words to describe how much I enjoyed this brew. Definitely recommended and worth a try. One of the best imperial stouts I have had. Cheers!!!

Laughing Dog Brewing
At Laughing Dog Brewing, what began with a dream for brews with more hops has turned into an insatiable desire to craft beers of all flavors, with a focus on quality, purity, and fun. Today, Laughing Dog brews has brewed over 15 distinct beers, including seasonals like our Huckleberry Ale and Winter Ale, and our award-winning IPA's and Stouts. But despite our success and growth, our motto remains the same as the day we started, to create... "Fetchingly Good Beer"!

The laughing Yellow Lab that appears on all of our brews, our logo, and other items is Ben our family dog. His loyal and relaxed attitude, appetite for quality food, and constant desire for walks to complete his healthy lifestyle has served as the perfect inspiration for all our brews at Laughing Dog Brewing.

 But of course, Ben can't write or run the business of a brewery or due to health and safety regulations even be in the clean areas of the brewery, so his "owners" Fred Colby and Michelle Douglass are really the ones behind the curtain making it all happen. The three often discuss their new ideas for brews and flavors, and Ben gives his OK by one bark, or a NO by two barks.

At some point, Ben plans to retire from brewing, and he will pass the torch onto his son Ruger to make the day-to-day barks of approval. But be warned, Ruger is already the inspiration for Devil Dog, a fiesty brew with a full bite, so there may be a few more "exotic" brews in the future at Laughing Dog Brewing.

Laughing Dog Brewing Owners Ben (the dog), Michelle Douglass and Fred Colby hope that you enjoy drinking our beers as much as we enjoy making them.
