On tap at the DC location. Reviewed from notes. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a slight tan head and a bit of lacing. The nose is darkly-roasted malts with some light chocolate as well as a moderate amount of earthy hops. The taste is a bit more subdued. There is some nice roast, but the chocolate and earthy notes from the nose are quite a bit more muted. The feel is nice and pretty roasty. Fairly dry in general with a nice finish. Drinkability is decent enough, but there’s not enough there to keep me hanging on. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-13-2010

On tap at the Annapolis restaurant. Transparent dark pour with moderate head. Sweet roasted malt flavor, but very mild. Goes down very easily for a darker beer. Nice session beer.

Draft. Listed as ’Smoked Schwarz’. Mahogony beer with a dark cream colored head. light smoke aroma. Smoke and light bacon flavor with malt. Medium bodied Smoke and light bacon lingers with malt. I don’t know if this is a different beer or not.
