COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium-bodied ale is characterized by its rich, malty sweetness. The interplay of five different malts provide a slight toffee and chocolate flavor profile. This is the dark beer that light beer drinkers love. A favorite of DC 101s "Elliot in the Morning" crew before, after and during Caps hockey games. $1.01 from each pint sold will be donated to Olie (Kolzig) and Elliots Great Saves Program.
