Drake (8550) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours nearly black with a thin brown head that fades quickly. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and espresso. The taste is roasted malts, rich coffee notes, caramel and a faint hoppy finish. Thin-medium bodied. Very tasty. I could drink this all day... and the next day. Never had these guys beers before tonight, but so far Im impressed.

Dogbrick (8139) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Growler from Party Source. Pours an opaque black color with a medium thick and foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and coffee in the nose, plus a hint on anise. Rich and creamy body with a nice roasted character. Flavors of sweet malt, milk chocolate and coffee are all present along with a bit of hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Thanks to cewldre for a growler of this as part of Mystery Swap 2.0. Pours deep brownish black with a miniscule tan head that disappears rapidly. Aroma of heavy roasty dark malt, some chocoff, molasses, and a bit of hazelnut. Medium to light palate heft, with flavors of roasty malt, subdued cacao, molasses, and hazelnut. Fairly complex if a bit thin, Im looking forward to finishing this growler tonight with a Rocky Patel Fusion cigar.

Bottle. Lightly ashy chocolate coffee malt and dry grass aroma. Black with small head. Sweet mocha coffee malt and lightly bitter hay/ash flavor. A nicely drinkable stout.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Growler courtesy of cewldre: Pours an opaque black with a thin, frothy, thin-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet dark earthy caramel and roasted malt. Body starts fairly full and dark chocolatey sweet with some mild dark fruity complexity and lightly roasted malt toward the finish. A smooth and enjoyable sweet stout.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown pour, tan head. Coffee and chocolate in aroma and flavor. Better stout than expected from what is now shaping up to be my favorite Cincinnati brewery.
