Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is chocolate and roast. Slick mouth, similar flavors to nose, lingering bitterness, good.

Dogbrick (13026) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2014
This beer is a brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasty with malt and coffee notes plus some chocolate. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and hops. The finish is charred malt up front with a mild hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

A lot better than the average black IPA. This one you can tell was a more well-produced recipe. A lot of hop flavor in this one, really fruity.

A black ale, big roast, not that much of the hops except in a bitter finish. Good taste and decent drinkability. I get this kind of thing in trades.

On tap at the Kedzie location. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of roast with coffee and a backing bitter chocolate note supported by grassy hops. Flavor has roasted malts and coffee with a really nice grassy hop note in the finish.
