i think DC Brau was the first real experience that made me knew i was hooked on the good craft beers
this beer is no exception, i love it
nearly jet black beer with a little bit of head on it, poured out of my growler at home :-)
roasted malt aroma and some chocolate too, even there is some spice and nutmeg in there, kind of weird but i like it! :-)
oh wow what a nice taste, especially in the end there its real smooth nice dark character without the annoying ashtray flavor so clean
overall this is one of the best if not the best local beers right now in DC I salivate when I think of it

3.85/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug.
Appearance: deep, rich brown hue, which lets no light through. Head is a thick finger of creamy tan foam with OK retention and not much in the way of lace.
Smell: slightly sweet malty aroma with a good chocolate character. It's got a nice roastiness, but not a big astringency, which I like. I'm a fan!
Taste: much roastier than the aroma with a little bit of burnt malt right up front. This subsides into a more balanced, but still quite roasty, porter profile. Bitterness is a little high, with hop character a little bit vegetal. Not bad; definitely robust.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a decent creaminess.
Overall: I find this beer quite drinkable indeed. I wouldn't mind if it were available here on the West coast.

3.65/5 rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A: Classic dark chocolate color with mocha tan head. Poured into snifter, 2 finger head. Poor head retention/lacing qualities.
S: Light caramel, baker's chocolate, light cherry smoke. Weaker than expected even for such a light ABV, and it takes some time for it to warm and develop.
M: Good amount of bite immediately, medium carbonation, less bodied, but balanced with flavor. Semi-dry finish.
T/O: T: cinnamon macchiato, coffee ice cream finish, roasted grains, hazelnuts, orange bitter, white chocolate accents, balanced b/t sweet and roast. It makes a very good morning/breakfast beer.
Serving type: can
