Served to me in a pint glass. Asked the waitress to check the beer I thought it was a porter. Its a good porter a bad brown ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Burger Tap Shake at Washington Circle, pours a murky dark orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is OK, gristy, some bread crust, a little brown sugar, some yeast, a little vinous hop. Flavor is fine, a bit hoppier than a standard brown with some lemon and a little soap, but then mostly malt, a little whole wheat flour, bread crust, mild dough. Dry finish. Just OK.

Tastes bold and roasty, yet creamy with a bit of hops at the end. Looks great, palate is surprisingly substantial for such a low ABV beer. I would definitely drink this again.

A descent brown ale which is saying something since I generally don’t like browns. Has a good coffee flavor.

On tap. Pours murky brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is of chocolate, toasty malt, and grass. Taste is of nutmeg, chocolate, and grass. Has a toasty malt backbone. Lingering nutty taste. Mouthfeel is light, almost thin. Body is very light. It’s not bad, but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Gilly’s Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Opaque, dark brown with fine khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, cocoa, coffee and a hint of orange. Taste of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, orange, toffee and nuts. Just sweet enough to temper the intense roasty flavors. Medium body and medium carbonation. This has a lot of intense flavor and complexity for a 4.8% beer. It’s quite contrast to those timid American brown ales you find all too often. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
