Lubiere (9865) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2009
A dark brown ale with a thin light moka head. Light nutty malt aroma, a bit of fusel alcohol and burned wood. In mouth, a good burned roasted malt, very nutty, maybe of bit of autolyzed yeast off flavours. On tap at BBW, Logan airport, July 19 2009.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Sample at Beer Works Fenway: Pours a dark chestnut color with a medium beige head that burns off steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malts and nuts. Medium, smooth body with chocolate, malt and nut flavors. Slight hops do not do enough to counter the sweetness. The finish is sweet and lingering malt. Average all around.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2007
Draught at brewpub. Dark brown body with a small beige head. I can see why the “Beantown” part of the name. The beer is very beany indeed. However I didn’t find much of the advertised nut flavours. Liquid baked brown beans makes up most of the initial taste along with hints of dark cherries and fig flavours. That’s followed by some earthy and citrusy hops providing a pleasant tartness albeit no bitterness. Decent beer. Will do the job if you have a craving for baked beans but you’re on a date and are afraid of the real-thing side-effects.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Tap@Beer Works , Boston, Ma. Not bad for a Brown Ale. Some blackberry and redberry fruit. Caramel, toffee flavours, a little bit tart. Good for the style i think.
