Dogbrick (10714) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt plus some touches of dark fruit. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, roasted nuts and dark fruit. The finish is sweet and roasty with a malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Sammy (10556) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
hops and yeast in aroma. Some bitterness and roastiness and nuttiness. So complexity and higher alcohol is assimilated. Amber colour. Medium mouthfeel.

DSG (10542) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Very dark brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, some toastiness, fruits, chocolaty and nutty notes and a bit of hops and alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, nuts and fruits. Finishes with bitter and slightly spicy hops and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied with a somewhat thick and rounded feel. Not bad.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Co-rated by Scraff... Clear, mahogany ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Very well retained with nice, creamy, thick lacing. Chocolatey aroma with notes of cashews, chocolate chip cookie dough and dark breads. The flavor, although well-balanced and well-bittered, is a bit of a let down. Smells better than it tastes. Light to medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. Good brew, overall.

deyholla (9635) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2011
On tap. Poured a hazy brownish amber with a thick white head that laced thickly and lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of malts with biscuit, caramel, hay and bread coming through with a hint of fruit. Flavor was similarly malty with lots of biscuits and bread with a bit of caramel sweetness to round out the beer.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 2013-04-30. Crisp red brown body small beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, lightly caramel. Flavour is pleasantly malty, sweetish, caramel touches, drier malt accents, light bitterness balances and lingers in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. My favorite of their beers I think, pleasantly malty, modest alcohol presence in the finish. 7/3/7/3/14 On tap at the brewery

2004-12-XX. Dark brown body with a small white film of a head. Aroma is sweetly malty with notes of burnt brown sugar. Flavour is vaguely Belgian with sweet malt and esters. perplexing dry bitterness in the finish is distractingly alcoholic. Pleasant fruity notes throughout, average palate. Interesting. Bottle. 6/3/6/3/12
