Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2007
This beer is a mostly clear dark brown color with a medium thin and creamy beige head that diminishes steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of earthy malt and touches of chocolate and nuts. Medium, clean body with malt, nut and pine flavors. The finish is short and nutty with a burnt malt aftertaste. All in all this is a pretty standard Porter.
