Draft to taster at brew pub listed as Brewer Marker and Seasonal brew. Pour dark amber copper with minimal ecru head. Nose toffee, raisin, dates, light vinous. Taste sweeter up front, then toffee, butterscotch, molasses, burnt caramel and light bitterness. Some nuttiness late.

Pours rather unclear blonde no real head. Smell is pure walnuts. Taste is walnuts, sweet, bit boozy, grainy, some copper, slightly bitter. Absolutely fantastic!

My 100th rating for beers brewed in the District of Columbia. This is the non-barrel aged version of this beer. Cask handpull at the source. Deep clear chestnut brown color, small but thick beige head. Aroma of plums, prunes, dates. Taste is rich smooth butterscotch and dark fruit. Very tasty, good choice for a cask offering, and even better during the one inch "blizzard" in DC that closed schools and wreaked havoc here. Weenies.
