Dog E is an extra special brew, marking 9 years of BrewDog. Like dogs A to D before it, Dog E is an imperial stout with speciality ingredients, then barrel-aged. Dog E pours like dark matter into your glass, with a deep tan head. The nose is subtle but powerful, and on the palate, there’s a treacle toffee backbone, supporting the spicy hop flavour and naga chilli heat. Dog E is like eating chocolate ice cream and drinking cognac in a leather armchair. It’s also perfect for cellaring, or for a vertical tasting with Dog A, B, C & D.
Brewdog owners Martin and James were bored of the industrially brewed Lagers and stuffy Ales that dominated the UK beer market. They decided the best way to fix this undesirable predicament was to brew their own. Consequently in April 2007 BrewDog was born. They brewed tiny batches, filled bottles by hand and sold their beers at local markets and out of the back of their beat up old van. Located on a 5.5 acre green field site in Ellon, just North of Aberdeen in Scotland, their state of the art eco brewery is one of the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly breweries in the world.
