Nice brown color, with a short lived head. Sweet roasty and caramel aromas. Taste is also roasted malt, sugar, coffee and nutty as well. Very enjoyable experience.

Pours a dark brown, iwth a nice toffee colored head. Has the caramel aroma that I expect from a brown ale, but there are hops hiding there as well. Shares the roastiness and coffee notes of a porter with some pretty agressive hopping. Very nice.

A hopped up brown ale. Dark brown color. Good caramel malt aroma coupled with hop aroma. Good deal of bitterness in there also, but not too much. Full mouthfeel.

Beer poured a dark brown, and has a nice nutty, caramel aroma. Flavor is great, I really liked this brew, Dogfish know what they’re doing!

Pailhead (4783) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is of caramel, brown sugar, and some roastiness. Pours a very dark reddish-brown. Barely transparent when held to the light. Nice tan head with fair retention. Flavor is caramel, brown sugar, coffee, roastiness, and grapefruit. Good balance of malts and hops. Starts a little on the sweet side and finishes slightly bitter with more of a sweet aftertaste. This is a different tasting beer. Seems like a cross between an IPA, a stout, and a brown ale. Definitely not your ordinary brown ale.

Dark reddish brown pour with tan head. Aromas are pretty intense. Lots of toasted malt, bread, a little graham cracker, and some hops. Smooth and rich in the mouth, with all the flavors present that the nose hinted at with a little more earthy overtone to everything and a slight bit more chocolate flavor. Dry, earthy/spicey charicteristic in the finish. Very good. Perfect for me to knock back during a Buckeye or Browns game.

120z bottle dated 04/04 Not too appealing of a head, but gorgeous brunette red-head color. Smells like a tootsie roll...faint smoke too...a wacky combination of malt, hops and yeast. A real chewy nutball of a beer. Wacky pubby brown, perhaps a touch acrid but that may just be a slightly harsh bitterness from the hops...Drained while the rain faded near the Vrain.
