Smell of coffee and ginger comes out fast, color is a deep brown with a tan head that fades down and films the sides of the glass. Chocolate and coffee dominate the flavor, almost matching that of a stout, but the body is much lighter, I would describe it as medium in comparison. The finish is a little bitter, with the molasses coming out with the hop flavor. Very refreshing and the body has a nice texture in your mouth. DFH just continues to be a solid provider.

Coffee, vanilla, some leather and malt in the aroma. Dark red in color with a fat cream head. Very rich in flavor and body with noticable alcohol in the sinus. Good malty flavors with raisen and plum. Brown suger and roast flavors also. Not bad, but a little unbalanced.

Deep brown, clear liquid. THin head. Nice nutty and roasted malt aroma. Flavor is a tinge sweet malt with carmel hints. Great finish. Bod is satin. Nice beer. 7.2% has a nice kick too.

this is yet another beautiful ruby red brew.(i have had alot lately.)when poured into a pint glass,it gave off almost no head to speak of.the first sniff let off wonderful sents of brown sugar,and carmel.very upfront and pleasing.the flavor was also very nice.with layers of chocolate,coffe brown sugar,carmel malts,and hops near the end.i must say this is top of the line for brown ales.

Very Big light brown head, tart dark fruit aroma and roastedness. Minor hoppy bite at the end but overall a roasted malt flavor.

sbrewno (49) - Frankfort, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Dark brown pour with a fair head. Aroma like choclate. Thick, lingering first sip. This one is strong. Roasted enough to border on a porter? Great flavor, complex blend of malt and hops. A very, very good ale.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Bottle pours a red brown color with a nice off white head and not much in residual lace. The aroma is sweet, a touch roasted, and nice hops. The flavor his me as drier than expected, somewhat roasted, and with a lingering bitter finish. The body has an almost Belgian cleansing quality. Overall, not bad at all.

All in all, I’m not a huge fan of Brown ales. This one was above average for sure. With a strong presence of Coffee and raisins (lesser Browns, in my opinion, suffer from tasting too much like Bosco!) there’s a nice roastiness in the nose. Subtle, sweet finish with nice presence of caramel or molasses.

Bottle - nice deep chocolatey aroma. Deep brown, almost purple with light shining through. Beautifully tightly bubbled beige head. Delicious. Malty, chocolatey. Soft on the palate. This is a very nice beer!
