Dogbrick (7971) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2012
On draught at Salt House. The beer pours a dark brown color with a medium creamy tan head that diminishes steadily. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and mild coffee. Light to medium-bodied with a roasty character and notes of grainy malt and coffee. The finish is mildly bitter with a slight coffee and hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
