I initially purchased 2 of these right around the time that Dogwood went out of business in late 2004. This is the second of the two, which I drank a year later. It's a shame they folded, because this has to have been the best Dogwood beer I ever had. It had a nice roasted feel to it, with a nice chocolate taste in the background. And while the alcohol content was high, you didn't notice it until the end. I hope this is a recipe that gets picked up and brewed elsewhere, because it's Atlanta's loss that this was a last hurrah before Dogwood disappeared.
