IMG_1376The Dog Father, Imperial Stout, Laughing Dog Brewing, Ponderay, ID10.85 abv, is opaque dark brown with a fluffy dark tan head. The powerful nose releases vanilla, dark cocoa, double espresso with a handful of sweet caramel and baking spices. The palate reflects much of the nose, especially the dark chocolate and espresso. The vanilla and baking spices follow close behind with a touch of sweetness and acidity on the finish.

The Dog Father, Imperial Stout has a big rich mouth feel and a long pleasing finish. It is the perfect beer to sip on a chilly evening sitting outside with a roaring fire pit looking up at the sky. Or, you just may opt to enjoy it with a rich chocolaty ganache cake or piece of mud pie.
