On tap at the Karl Strauss Brewery and Restaurant in La Jolla; served on tap in a tulip.
Appearance: A light chocolate and amber color. It arrived with a small head, which stays around and leaves a light lacing on the glass. Suspiciously somewhat transparent.
Smell: A pleasant blend of oak, smokey malt, and chocolate.
Taste: The smokey, roasted malt taste is the first thing I notice, with with vanilla and coffee flavors coming in afterward. There is a slight hoppy kick at the end.
Mouthfeel: This has a medium level of carbonation, with a nice creaminess to it. At the same time, it is almost too light.
Drinkability: This is a very smooth beer, which I enjoyed, but I don't know how many more I would want to drink. There are definitely better Belgian Browns out there.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Karl Strauss Brew Pub located in La Jolla, CA. I stopped by here while the wife took the kids to Starbucks...
Poured a darker brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, woody, vanilla, and somewhat earthy. Tastes of vanilla, chocolate, lighter woodiness, and caramel.
Serving type: bottle
