Clear mahogany body with tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, chocolate, light cherry. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, some caramel, light coffee, lager yeast. Light-medium body.

Pours a deep mahogany color but slightly transparent. Decent malt profile of caramel and chocolate malt. Slight bitter metallic hop finish. All of it comes in a little flat. I would think you could add a little more of everything and get a more full bodied beer.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Almost black, thin beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of chocolate strup with a bit of pine. Taste is bitter chocolate added to lager. I’m not sure the combo really works.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2006
A malty aroma with not much else n the nose. Pretty much everything is a little onesided. Dark with no head whatsoever to speak. Not the best beer they make. For lack of a better word, it was very british in everyway.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Deep red, wispy creamy mocha head. Nose a bit coffee. Coffee repeats in flavor, bit of bitter. Too thin, fades at end.

JamesD (243) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2008
This a great beer for people who like roastiness and smokiness. I personally don’t like such flavors and aromas that much so it doesn’t appeal to me, but if you’re into such things this would be a beer worth seeking out if you are in the Northern Virginia area.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Clear deep amber coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, nuts and a bit of spice. Light to Medium-bodied; Malty flavour up front with some light hops and subtle spices and nuts noticeable as well. Aftertaste shows more of the same, nothing great noticeable throughout the beer. Overall, not really worth trying unless you’ve had everything else at the brewpub - there are too many other beer offerings here. I sampled this beer on draught as a sampler at the Shirlington Oktoberfest in Arlington, Virginia on 07 October 2006.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 1, 2008
On tap at the Merrifield location. No nose, not much flavor, mild finish. A mediocre offering from a chain-brewpub. I was glad I’d only asked for a sample and hadn’t wasted the price of a pint on this.
