Nitro, Barking Dog, Seattle. I don’t know where to get his anymore, but when I could get it I would go out of my way to get a pint. Great pour, great taste and very enjoyable. Great session beer. You could sit and have a few and not feel like you had to call a cab or give your keys to somebody to get home.
On nitro :
Brown with creamy thick tan head. Creamy and malty throughout with mild hop finish after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draft at the Rivertown. Dark mahogany with thin but moussy tannish head and decent lace. Nice roasty bread nose. Body’s on the light side of medium. Almost goes a bit watery, but not in a bothersome way. Very soft carb. Rich roasty caramel and brown bread mid-palate, but the absolutely predominant flavor, interestingly enough, is chocolate. Nice little coffee note on the finish. I’ve had this stuff before and it never tasted this good--not sure if DK is running a new guy at the kettle (their head brewer as of yesterday was a guy named Brian, not sure how long he’s been there). Or maybe I just had a hatred of browns going on before that clouded my palate. But this was lovely. BillKismet (4138) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Dark amber-brown cola color with thinnish head. Some roast malt aroma wafts off. Solid brown flavor, quite enjoyable, medium roast malt with some roughness. Well-balanced. No off flavors. Emphasis on the malt with little detectable hopping. glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Served on nitro at Fred’s. Creamy brown in color with a medium creamy brown head. Didn’t pick up much aroma. A bit of sweetness. This brown is very smooth and enjoyable..easy on the hops and heavy on the malt, but it is not too sweet though. I like this better than their typical Brown.
