Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2016
This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, malt and vanilla. Medium body with flavors of espresso, roast malt, vanilla and dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

5 oz sample at a tasting. Pours a deep brown/black with a bubbly tan head. Aromas of coffee and cinnamon stood out to me the most. Very nice. Flavor had coffee up front, then milder notes of the cinnamon and vanilla, and some spices. Full body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter and dry finish. Very good brew.
