Draught@Hop Devil Grill, NYC
Very dark ruby color, nice big creamy off-white head. Strong berry-like aroma (red- and blackberry). Full-bodied. Liquerish palate. Flavor is dominated by blackberry, then also some sweetish caramelly components and hints of yeast and herbal flavors. Alcoholic punch in the aftertaste. Quite a treat, like drinking cassis liquer.

Drake (11576) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle shared by ryan. Pours hazy amber with tiny floaties. Medium sized creamy tan head. Aroma of big spicy notes including nutmeg, citrus peel and spruce along with bread and caramel notes. The taste is spice, caramel, bread, chocolate, candi sugar and cinnamon. Medium-full bodied. Just a tad bit overspiced but still a good beer.

Dogbrick (11327) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a bottle. The beer is a deep brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malt, fruit and yeast. Rich body with flavors of grainy malt, dark fruits and yeast. The finish is malty with a lightly spiced yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.
