Dogbrick (11480) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2003
From Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thick and foamy light brown head. Minimal head retention and lacing. Aroma is alternatingly malty and nutty. Sweet roasted malt and caramel flavors. Finish is pretty weak and was not sustained throughout the glass. I found myself uninterested by the end. Still it starts out pretty well so that is worth something.

What a surprise, pours a BROWN color! Head is beige colored. Aroma is nutty and sweet as expected. Flavor is also nutty and a tad sweet wtih some good malt, and maybe even a touch of vanilla. Not bad, not amazing either.
