brokensail (15635) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a touch of red highlights to it as well. A finger of tan head caps it off. S: Lots of nutty aromas along with plenty of cocoa, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Toffee and caramel provide the bulk of the sweetness and there is a nice toasted malt character as well. T: The flavor profile is pretty much the same as the smell. A nice sweetness of toffee and caramel, as well as milk chocolate. A touch of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt, and the usual nuttiness. M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation to it. D: A really solid brown ale. A nice, but not overwhelming, sweetness to it.

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2010
On draught at Maui Brewing Company in Lahaina, HI. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes to an outer ring eventually. Rings of lacing on the glass. Malty aroma with some dark fruit and coffee notes. Medium body with a rich malty character and flavors of roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate and raisins. The finish is malty with a lingering roasty sweetness left behind. Pretty good all around.

On-tap at Papago bar. Very dark brown and lacey, though was only a whisp of a head. A bit watered down. Some licorice taste. Sweet and essentially uninteresting, did not pick up the unique use of hops.Average mouthfeel.
