Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Clear dark golden pour with a medium thin creamy white head that recedes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak and grainy malt. Medium body with an oaky character and notes of yeast and caramel malt. The finish is oaky with a peppery yeast aftertaste. Oak aging definitely improved the base beer based on my recollection of the original. Decent overall.

Draught. Dark yellow with giant soapy head. Aroma is mellow and fresh grain with some very light floral perfume and citrus. Flair its s but more citrus and vinous with mild bitter juicy end. Soft texture. Pretty good.

Pouring at the Night of the Barrels at Extreme Beer Fest. Pours a just clear golden amber with a medium sized yellowed white head. Soft funky musk, gentle funk. Medium bodied, sweet and toasty with a bit of candy. Warm yeast and musk with a bit of spice. Very nice stuff, tart and musky.
