Dogbrick (9361) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 Sample at the Universal City location. Pours a clear dark reddish-amber color with a thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Rich malty aroma with notes of dark fruit. Medium to full slightly syrupy body with a sweet malty character. Flavors of caramel and toffee along with dark fruit and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet almost to the point of being cloying, with a caramel malt aftertaste. A little unbalanced on the sweet side but still a decent beer.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with thin off white head, aroma brought big caramel, toffee, red fruit into some slight pine, spice, almost a rye note into some earth, slight herbal notes as well. Taste was a mix of red fruit, touch of orange into caramel, toffee, some toasted bread into herbal, grassy hops, finishing slightly bitter, dry.

BMan1113VR (7903) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a clear amber-orange hued body with a small, off-white/tan head. Aromas are of tea, marmalade, oxidized. Some caramel, floral, sweet, jammy, mild esters. Flavors are sweet, malty, sugary, bready, orange marmalade. Soft malt profile. Medium alcohol. Too sweet for my tastes. Orange rind, light dark fruit. Surprisingly smooth alcohol wise. Medium carbonation, slightly warming and a bit flabby.

65 cl can @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg Aroma has coffee, bready malt and some sweet malty notes typical to ASAs. Flavour has roasted tones, resin, sweet malty tones and nuts. Like an ASA mixed with dunkel. Too sweet for my taste.

blipp (6880) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft at the tasting room. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel and faint crystal malts, fruity and earthy hops, and some candy sweetness. Not bad, but just a touch too heavy on the sweet malt character for my taste.

Bottle from LtDan. Thanks! Pours a plum orangish red with a small sudsy white head. Nose is grainy water, light vegetal notes, no hops. Flavor is more developed with some sweeter fruity flavors, light bitterness. Ends a little ashy.
