Default delicious room temperature suds

So last year I was out at a restaraunt around town (rock bottom, I think?) and they sometimes have a pretty good specialty beer. this one was served room temperature, dark as night, and tasty as hell!

I don't remember what kind it was but I really liked it.

so recently I just graduated from college and got a new job and am looking for something to do with my free time. so I thought about trying to brew some beer. but I want to try my hand a brewing beer thats supposed to be served at room temp.

anyone know of some good recipes? or if there is a name for what I'm looking for (besides tasty treat)

What you had was most likely a cask conditioned ale.
There's a whole site devoted to this here: http://www.camra.org.uk/
Common style served in this manner are Bitter, Stouts, Milds and Porters.

Rock bottom rotates their beers through casks, most of Rock Bottom beers suck anyway....

Just remember that cellar temperature in Scotland may be slightly colder than America

thanks for the info. and I agree most of rock bottom beers suck, but this was the first time I had seen and tasted a beer like this. so I'm sure there's better beers but this was a good intro.

cheers

I'd suspect it was a milk stout or a robust porter, they do well when cask conditioned. The only Rock Bottom cask conditioned ale I've had was a red & I told the bartender to dump it after a couple sips. Glad you had a better experience.
