garthicus (2912) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 26, 2013
Tap at The Salt House. Appearance: very dark brown, small mocha head. Aroma: Quite toasty, a little grass, wet cardboard, slight butter aroma too. Flavour: mild chocolate, quite a creamy mouthfeel despite the lack of body, toasty, ever so slightly smokey with a nice chocolate finish. Pretty good.

Dogbrick (11621) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Sample at Oslo in Galway. Pours a clear dark golden-brown color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, nuts and some berry. The finish is sweet with a short nutty aftertaste. Decent overall.
