draught at wharf rat @ camden yards:
pours a clean clear ice tea brown with a foamy and creamy lasting off white head.
aroma is malty with a little roaast and quite sweet i also get very fruity esters almost like a belgian very complex for a brown.
flavour is rich and creamy with roastedness and some bitter. hints of alcohol come thru and some chocolate and a great malt backing. excellent beer. Drake (13939) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Sampled on cask at the NoVa Summer Beer Fest in Leesburg, VA on 6/25/11. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toffee and floral hops. The taste is toasted malts, intense caramel notes, toffee, bitter hops and a bit of smoke. Medium bodied. Quite nice.

Draught at the Wharf Rat in fells point. Clear amber brown body with small off white head. Mildly sweet hop malt aroma. Malt and nuts on the pallet with a smooth richness. Slight caramel nut malt bitterness towards the end, flavorful! Quaffed this on a hot summer day trudging around Fells point with Death with a K and the wife and really liked it. Looking forward to getting down there again this year. Fatehunter (2568) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Pours a finger and half of head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is dark dry grains.
The taste is caramel, muted apricot sweetness, molasses with a long tingle finish.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It has great flavor. Travlr (25185) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Cask. Clear ruby amber color, white large bubble head. Aroma of perfumed butterscotch. Taste is bitter and peppery butterscotch. Interesting.

7.5% ABV. Strong Brown Ale
Alcoholic nose which carries some nice deeply roasted malts. Approaches an English style porter.
Full mouthful of nice clean malty flavors.
Finishes off with some quality bitters. They do bloom a little to give off some nice floral accents that reminded me of Calla lillies.

Clear dark amber body with a small creamy off-white head. The nose is lightly sweet and vinous with caramel and plum. The flavor is lightly sweet with spicy herbal hops, raisins and brown sugar. Medium/full body is soft with moderate carbonation and a warm finish. boto (2247) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Draught in Inner Harbor location: This one pours a clear, light brown color. There was a small off-white head on it. The aroma was a bit milder than expected. There was some caramel malts, as well as a touch of nuttiness. The taste is a bit better. It has a rich, malt taste. There was some nuttiness, as well as some fruits in the background. Not sweet at all. Smooth and well balanced. Nice. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Draft - Pratt Street Ale House (formerly the Wharf Rat). Dark amber, thin creamy white head. Soft toasted nut and vanilla cream tones warm to hints of milk chocolate. Well balanced as warm brown toasty notes ride soft toffee chocolate swirls. A light hop bitterness rounds the malt well. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A well made rendition.... keepersj12 (3133) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Very well done. Nice dark amber with a good head. Aroma of malt, hops, maybe some nuttiness in there. Flavor is sweet malt with a nice hop balance. Dry finish.
