Beer Tasting Notes {Laughing Dog Brewing :: Dogzilla Black IPA}

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.  
Cheers!

  1. It certainly looks appetizing though :) We have a grocery store that does the 6 pack "sampler" packs. I love picking and choosing and trying different kinds, though I don't think I've seen this one there yet.
