Smokey Aroma. Sudsy tan head, dark brown color. Sweet chocolate, smoky taste. Very tasty. I’ve had on tap at Wharf Rat in Fells Point before but this one was on cask at the Frisco Grille. I don’t usually care for Cask Conditioned but this one has made me appreciate beers on Cask.

Tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Black with a thick creamy head and delicate lacing. Aroma of wood/pine and cocoa. Flavor begins with sweet chocolate and progresses to a woody, smoky, bitter finish. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a tan/grey head. 100% foam on the pour - had to wait for the barkeep to combine two glasses. Mellow, nut-roast aroma. Head is like tan wall patch plaster. Coffee, nuts, dry, smooth. Foam is a bit metallic. Medium finish with a roasty character. Medium body. Very drinkable, very good.

Pints @ Fells Point Wharf Rat. Pours a very dark cola-brown color; very light tan head with excellent retention and creamy fine-bubbled lacing; a gorgeous pour. Pleasant amounts of roasted malts, milk chocolate, and soft oatmeal / vanilla in the aroma; some powdered donut. Medium mouthfeel: less acidity and bitterness than the Blackfriar; creamy oatmeal and milk chocolate at the core; some solid roastiness and nougat; very drinkable stuff. Medium finish: breadiness, milk chocolate, and a touch of toasted grains.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro pour at Fells Point Wharf Rat. Clean black with a heavy cream of gray. Nougat, vanilla, oatmeal aroma; basic, creamy and quiet sweetness. Lightly ashy roast flavor; underlying tannic dark fruit acidic texture that complements the ashy chocolate and lactic sweetness really nicely. Soft, nutty bittersweetness; hazelnut, pistachio. Wet, soft mouthfeel; medium in body with gentlest carbonation livening it up just a touch. Warm, juicy roastiness and au jus beef nearing the finish, where it lands on a dry, reserved black bitterness. A clean, charming, highly drinkable offering.
