Dogbrick (14300) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 Sample at the Universal City location. Pours a dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of malt and nuts. Medium body with a sweet malty character along with notes of caramel and nuts, plus a bit of hops. The finish is sweet caramel and malt and lingers a bit. Above average overall.

Tap at La Jolla. Dark brown, light tan head. Aroma is malty, buttery, toffee and light chocolate. Flavor follows suit with lots of toffee, some butter and chocolate and light coffee notes. Good stuff.

jeremytoni (3085) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2009
From the tap poured dark brown black with a fair amount of head. Nice malty flavor with a quick finish.

Ungstrup (38902) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
Draft at the Carlsbad location. A black beer with a red shine under a tan head. The aroma is very malty combined with notes of bread and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with a light acidic edge from the roasted malt, since it is rather roated, and has a dry, bitter, and roasted finish. 28 IBU’s. MIne was stated at 4.4% ABV.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2008
On tap at Carlsbad location. Color of dark brown with a light chocolate head. Aroma of chalky malt, roasted malt and cocoa. Flavor was chalky, roasted and cocoa. Fairly standard for the style, lacking anything special. Palate was a bit watery. Just ok.

yespr (48895) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
From tap at the brewpub in Carlsbad. Pours dark brown to black with a lacing tan head. Smooth roasted malt flavour with a nice liqourice note. Liqourice hops and dry roasted malt finish. Mild bitterness coming through.

DenverLogan (1300) - North Bend, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Very dark brown; lingering small brown head. Rich and smooth...easy drinking, rich malts but not overpowering. Creamy, great balance of rich roasted malts, cocoa, grains but with a slight sour fruit finish. On tap at Churchill’s.

AbeerWolf (27) - USA - JAN 30, 2008
Smooth, rich flavor that tapers off after the first couple of sips. Aroma is slightly hoppy with the chocolate malts coming through after. Body is lively but not overwhelming. Good overall beer that is perfect for a warm San Diego evening.
