Lubiere (12802) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
A brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with plums. In mouth, a boring chalky ale with light brunes, rather pedestrian. On tap at VT Brewers Fest, July 17 2010.

Brown with a small tan head. Fruity and hoppy aroma that includes some pine and smoke notes. Bitter and a little sour to the taste. A little sweet but almost like a tart, dark chocolate. Creamy on the palate.

Dogbrick (11332) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2003
This was an interesting beer that pretty much defied description to me. At different points in my glass I would have guessed it was a Brown Ale, a Dunkel, or an Altbier. Points for being different. Pours a dark brown but clear, with a medium thick light beige head. Quick lacing. Aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with flavors of coffee, nuts and malt, with a sweet malty aftertaste. A good session beer, and the best from Abita I have tried.
