MadRobin (2338) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 3, 2015
On cask at The Ale House Columbia. Clear, dark mahogany wins thin, creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of booze, butterscotch, licorice, red grapes and a little roasted malt. Taste of booze, butterscotch, nuts, floral hops, red grapes, licorice and roasted malt. This has a reasonable complex, but not especially pleasant taste. Full/medium body and low (cask) carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Draft - Pratt Street Ale House (formerly the Wharf Rat). Dark amber, thin creamy white head. Soft toasted nut and vanilla cream tones warm to hints of milk chocolate. Well balanced as warm brown toasty notes ride soft toffee chocolate swirls. A light hop bitterness rounds the malt well. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A well made rendition....

Way too much anise for my taste. Albeit i didnt read the description and wasnt ready for it i just thought it was very one dimensional. I think i also had it on cask.

boto (1951) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Draught in Inner Harbor location: This one pours a clear, light brown color. There was a small off-white head on it. The aroma was a bit milder than expected. There was some caramel malts, as well as a touch of nuttiness. The taste is a bit better. It has a rich, malt taste. There was some nuttiness, as well as some fruits in the background. Not sweet at all. Smooth and well balanced. Nice.

scottw86 (1141) - Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2009
On tap. Poured a dark brown/amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is grassy with lots of spice. Taste is very spicy with some good caramel flavors. Some citrus with malts and nuts. Too much carbonation. I would have enjoyed this more, but I thought there were too many spices that detracted from the other good flavors.

arone12 (924) - Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Tastes a bit like burnt coffee and caramel. Has a sweet smell to it with a tiny bit of burntness. However, the burnt taste was a bit of a welcomed surprise. I like.
