Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a chestnut-brown with creamy, long lasting head. Malty aroma. A hint of hops in the end, but mainly a caramel-ish taste. Smooth and not as full bodied as I would like for a brown ale.

3.2
Dogbrick (13986) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2013
On draught at Blue Sky Cafe in the Newport News airport. The beer pours a clear mahogany-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.1
hopscotch (11305) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Draft... ODBF2006... Clear, amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Malty nose with some nice, light chocolate notes. The flavor is chocolatey as well. A tad on the sweet side of balance. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes chocolatey and mildly bitter. Did I get around to saying anything about this brew being chocolatey at all?
