Scopey (13557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle on the Eurostar to Brussels, thanks to Leighton. It pours deep red-brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is caramel, toffee, wood, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisin and currant. The taste is currant, raisin, plum, prune, booze, wood, caramel, toffee, some brett, nut and spice, with a warming finish. Full body and lively carbonation, but goes flat quickly. Not too shabby, perhaps a bit too boozy and sweet for me though.

A hazed reddish dark amber with a thick frothy mocha head, gusher. In aroma, a sour malt with cherries, brett, dark fruits, fruit sourness, OK. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with fruity notes, cherries, sour yet still good.

Dogbrick (12341) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 Sample at the Beer N Rock Band tasting on 08/27/2010: Acquired via trade. Pours a murky reddish-orange color with a medium thick and fluffy light tan head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, spices and fruit. Light and effervescent body with flavors of caramel, yeast, nutmeg and cherries. The finish is malty at first and leaves a yeast and sweet spice aftertaste. Above average overall.
