Dogbrick (11598) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle from the wine shop at Bavarian Inn. The beer pours dark brown with a thin and foamy beige head that recedes slowly. Sticky sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasty with notes of malt and chocolate. Medium body that gets progressively thinner. There is a roasty chocolate malt character with traces of hops. The finish is dry with a roasted coffee aftertaste that is short-lived. Decent overall.

deyholla (10209) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle from the brewery. Poured a dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma was full of malts leading to a grainy aroma. Flavor was full of sweet grains but an awkward acidic taste comes into the taste towards the end and finishes dry.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2007
Draft at Coles in Buffalo. Black body with a small tan head and nice lacing on the glass. (3+) Moderately roasty mocha aroma. (6+) Roasty toasty malt up front in the flavour, sweet mocha, moderate bitterness is more from the roast than any perceptible hops (6+). Average palate. Well crafted but not really up my alley.

[602-20070909] Tap @ Cole’s (Buffalo, NY). Coffee malt aroma. Dark brown black body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Super coffee malt flavour with a touch of bitter roast. Full body is a little grainy. Nice coffee beer but wasn’t really in the mood.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
Draught at Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Pours a very dark amber-brown, almost black, with a small diminishing tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty along with some chocolate, dark fruit and molasses. Flavour, which is a touch watery, consists of lightly roasted caramel malt, coffee, cocoa, a hint of hops and a light bitter finish. Average bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Not a bad Dunkel at all, I liked it.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Dogbrick. Pours darkest brown with a medium off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma with some hop. Smells like a good sweet stout. Flavor is sweet up front with a somewhat dry finish, but the flavor disappears really quick.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Clear ruby-black with a small off-white head. Dry roasty coffee aroma, prune and light caramel malt, maybe some vague dry hops in the mix. Dry taste too, roasted coffee beans, green peaches and dry floral hops. Light, sticky body, nice bit of astringency, weak carbonation and a very quick finish - slight bitter roasty linger. Went down easy.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2005 Had this on tap at The Post in Auburn Hills. Pours a flat greyish-brown with some lighter browns on the edges. Big creamy off-white head. Aroma is lightly sweet of dark maple syrup with some very dry roasty flavors that almost give it a hickory smell. Opens up with the typical smoothness of Local Color beers. Hardly any carbonation, very soft and creamy. There is a bittersweet flavor that plays on the palate from the roast. Finish is very chewy and surprisingly complex. Maple, bitter molasses, and a slightly winey sweet roast flavor. Good medium body. 2nd Local Color Brew I’ve tried, and I’m very impressed.

thedm (5775) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a medium head of light brown bubbles and an opaque black body. It had a malty aroma, a smooth taste and mild roasted flavor. It was a very drinkable brew.
