Chained Dog by Black Cloister Brewing Company in Ohio, United States

About Chained Dog by Black Cloister Brewing Company

In homage to the original, Duvel, Black Cloister has given this beer a devilish name with a twist. Martin Luther once said the devil “can do no more than a chained dog, which may bark, run here and there, and tear at the chain. But because it is tied and you avoid it, it cannot bite you.” This beer bursts with flavor and aroma. First you be enticed with notes of pear and banana. Then your palate will be washed with spicy, floral notes to be followed immediately by a noticeable alcohol warmth. It will tempt you to drink it again and again, but, be warned, this dog has a bite!


The idea for Black Cloister Brewing Company was born from a trio of inspirations: a love of great beer, a desire to build community in Toledo, and a wish to give back.
