Sampled on cask at the NoVa Summer Beer Fest in Leesburg, VA on 6/25/11. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toffee and floral hops. The taste is toasted malts, intense caramel notes, toffee, bitter hops and a bit of smoke. Medium bodied. Quite nice.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
Draught at the Wharf Rat in fells point. Clear amber brown body with small off white head. Mildly sweet hop malt aroma. Malt and nuts on the pallet with a smooth richness. Slight caramel nut malt bitterness towards the end, flavorful! Quaffed this on a hot summer day trudging around Fells point with Death with a K and the wife and really liked it. Looking forward to getting down there again this year.

boto (1844) - 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.

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....

Dogbrick (7985) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a murky dark amber-brown color with a thin and compact off-white head that burns away steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel malt in the nose along with a bit of citrus fruit. Medium, smooth body with flavors of malt, toffee and mild hops plus some roasty notes. The finish is soft and malty with a sweet aftertaste. Above average overall.
