Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
A hazy red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of berries and diacethyl. The flavor is of diacethyl and fruit, combined with a light note of citrus, and with a dry bitter toffee end. Served too cold - is that to hide the diacethyl?

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Nitro... Mostly clear, deep amber ale with a, mid-sized, creamy, eggshell head. Malty, vineous aroma and flavor. A bit sweet and alcoholic. Toffee, vino sherry and a hint of butterscotch. Decently bittered, but the nitro eliminates much of the character of both the nose and taste. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Finishes a little sweet.

GT2 (8177) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap at Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis, MD. Pours a hazy brown with a thin tan head that leaves crazy lacing. Big soy sauce aroma with some roasted nuts. Taste is soy sauce, biscuit, major English hops presence, some raspberry tart, big fruit juice sweetness. A bit of nutty bitterness at the end. Drying mouthfeel. 7.5% well hidden. Strange but nice.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a murky dark amber-brown color with a thin and compact off-white head that burns away steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel malt in the nose along with a bit of citrus fruit. Medium, smooth body with flavors of malt, toffee and mild hops plus some roasty notes. The finish is soft and malty with a sweet aftertaste. Above average overall.

On tap at the brewpub on 9/9/09: Pours a transparent dark amber mahogany with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel malts with some nutty character. Starts with some dark malty sweetness and some caramel toffee and light fruity tartness before a drier bittersweet finish. A decent brown ale.
