Had this one on draught at the brewpub near Union Station in Washington, D.C. Hazy medium brown pour, foamy tan head, nose and flavors of soy sauce, dark chocolate and plum dominate, this one is also good!

On tap. Color was dark reddish brown. Aroma of caramel, nuts and cocoa. Flavor was nutty and caramel. Pretty solid flavor and better than expected.

Draught at the brewpub, downtown
Dark amber color. A balanced Brown Ale, with some caramel and chocolate, without obsessive heavily roasted malt. Correct.

Was better than the amber ale had a nice taste of roasted malt could taste some caramel not too heavy attractive brown color and a pleasant smell I’d have this one again ..... Again they lost points they advertise a free pint glass with entree order but they were out of them tsk tsk food was a tad overpriced but we are rating the beer here right?

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2011 Too much unnatural flavors for me. Beer was way too sweet and left a strange sticky feeling in the mouth with a bad after taste. Typical ice cream parlor flavored brewery stuff. Not real beer.

Draft. Rusty brown with a lighter brown head, fully diminishing. Sweet malts accompany some husky grain notes on the nose. Fair level of bitterness throughout. Some coffee, some chickory, and nice hop accents. Full-bodied. A bit lacking in carbonation, however, taking away from the dry, completing finish.

Draft... Downtown, D.C. location... Hazed, dark, ruby ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Chocolate and light coffee in the nose. Roasted flavor. Medium bitter; not much else to speak of. Satisfying for the style. Medium-bodied and dry with lively carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter.
