I like the name of this beer because I made a little stuffed doggy-monster toy for my friend's little boy, and his name is Dogzilla. I think I like the stuffed Dogzilla better than the liquid Dogzilla...
Laughing Dog Brewing Dogzilla Black IPA
This 6.9% American Black IPA pours a dark mahogany color that shows hints of ruby red when held to the light, and a tight head of foam. It smells of sweet burnt caramel and maybe some piney hop hiding in the wings. It has a boozy roasted malt flavor up front, with a hint of bitter herbal hops at the finish. Not as much hop flavor as I would expect from a Black IPA; this one is overrun by the roasted malts. This was an interesting brew, but I don't think I'd buy it again. There are better Black IPAs out there.
