Dogbrick (11614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2009
This brew pours a cloudy ruby brown color with a medium and fluffy beige head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Sugary malt aroma with notes of smoke and vanilla. Medium body with a sweet malt and burnt sugar base and flavors of mild hops, smoke and oak mixed in. The finish is sweet and malty with a charred wood and caramel aftertaste. Interesting Barley Wine overall, yet not as enjoyable as I would have expected from this brewer.
