Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: I understand this is their most popular beer, but I don't understand why. I kept waiting for it to do something. It has minimal flavor

Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2003
From Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thick and foamy light brown head. Minimal head retention and lacing. Aroma is alternatingly malty and nutty. Sweet roasted malt and caramel flavors. Finish is pretty weak and was not sustained throughout the glass. I found myself uninterested by the end. Still it starts out pretty well so that is worth something.

slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2014
"pretty smooth, on par with Moose drool flavor-wise, but a little lighter in body, more like a Samuel Smith’s. A solid effort, but not worth going out of your way for."

3.2
Sammy (12769) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2006
Another lineup’s brown. And just another beer. Nice head, deep brown body. Licorice and malt, including chocolate.Not overly sweet. Offset by some roastiness.Nicely hopped. Grainy. Light instant coffee. Medium mouthfeel. Nicely drinkable at Pizza Plant Transit.
