Pretty malty without any head. The taste grew on me but not one of my favorites

Small Tan Head. Strong Malty Coffee aroma. Rich deep chestnut color. Interesting complex palate: first you are hit with malt toffee, chocolate, coffee, fig then the hops hit you with the other half of the taste. Excellent twist on a brown ale!

on tap at RFD in DC weak, disappointing amalgam of strange flavors, like Thai keffir lime leaves. Barely drinkable. Would never reorder.

Compared to the other Dogfish Head offerings I was a little disappointed. The appearance is quite nice with a beautiful amber color with a firm off white head that leaves a nice lace trail as the beer is finished. The aroma is a little weak, rather difficult to make out the specifics. Taste is quite smooth, Flavor of Molasses and light coffee flavor? Overall a pleasant beer.

Most like a Scotch to me. Taste was moderately hopped with some chocolate coming through, decent but not exceptional.

Short lived off-white head with a very dark cherry color. Very light aroma with a light hint of malt. Very little hop flavor to this beer, but its possibly covered by the malt flavor.

Pours a nice opaque brown, slight head. Not much aroma. Flavor is pleasantly interesting, not very hoppy. "ginger,raisinettes"?? Maybe not.

jdjuice (495) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - NOV 14, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 So delicious. The pour is flawless but not outstanding in anyway. This seems to be another one of those beers where the flavors all work synergistically to make a really good tasting beer. A very nice sweetness, nuttiness and heaviness to it. Well balanced with a perfect amount of bitterness. Fantastic for a flagship brew.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Pours a dark ruby brown, light tan head that lasts fairly well. Sweet malty aroma, and there is a hint of alcohol. Taste is a sweet rich caramel malt. Very lightly carbonated, and this adds to the smoothness. Very little hop flavor, and only the lightest bitterness in the finish.

A lot of sweetness and not enough drieness for me. Smuttynose Brown Dog blows this away.
