Dogbrick (12640) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Sample at Falling Rock Beer Tasting with Dr. Bill on 10/13/2012. This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of grapes and bready malt. Medium body with a vinous character and notes of crackery malt and touches of hops. The finish is fruity with an earthy malt aftertaste. Good overall.

"Ho-lee-crap. Did NOT expect this! A wonderful; marriage of tart funky fruit and bourbon. Carbonation high, but just right for the style. Dances on your tongue. Dark and light fruit, wine-like sourness, and some vanilla bourbon sweetness and a hint of pepper. What a delicious brew. Didnt know Boulevard could do wild like this."

Bottle... This beer rocks! Hazy burnt-caramel ale with no head. The aroma offers caramel, toasted barley, an assortment of berries and lactic acid. Full-bodied with stinging carbonation. Super-tart, fruity, black cherry and sour cherry flavor. Finishes, tart, bready and lightly bitter. Bottle generously shared by biggsbowler! Rufus? Randall? Hes the man!
