This addition to our beer menu is a stronger version of an American Brown Ale. Chocolate, crystal and amber malts combined with a generous amount of two row pale give this ale a rich and complex character. Cascade and Willamete hops balance out the notable malt and alcohol aspects of this beer.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2009 On draught at the brewpub. This brew is a brownish-orange color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt malt, caramel and hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, sweet caramel and a touch of dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a bittersweet chocolate and hops aftertaste. Decent all around.

Drank it at Wynkoop from the tap (well in a glass). A pleasant, well-hopped but smooth and flavorful ale. Malt flavors got better as it warmed up - I ordered it while I had a stout and let it warm up!
