Dogbrick (12344) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Sample at Monks Kettle. The beer is a dark ruby-brown color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit and spruce. Medium body with flavors of roast malt, spice, fruit and nuts. The finish is roasty with an herbal yeast and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

This brown beer has a very nutty aroma and flavor. One of the most unique beers I've ever tried. Often unique and good don't go hand in hand but this does. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (16760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2011
On tap at lfestival 2011. A clear, dark brown beer with a tan, finger-thick head. Roasted malts and dried fruit notes on the nose. Pleasant but a bit one dimensional. The same goes for the flavor, it could use more depth, and the redwood tips isnt very well pronounced. Maybe its the lack of hops that make it so one dimensional, maybe its not enough redwood tips in it. The finish has a herbal bitterness and some roasted hints. Medium body, pleasantly carbonated. Even though Ive pointed out a few things with this beer, its a decent beer indeed, easy drinkable too. 110526
