Pour medium/dark brown with nice tan head. Nice blend of chocolate, toffee/mollasses, dark fruit and faint coffee in the aroma. Flavor is all mollasses up front, fades to dark roasted grain, raisin and cocoa, again faint coffee in the finish. Lingering vinous aftertaste. Nice oily, semi sticky mouthfeel. Well done.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2005
12 oz brown bottle purchased from Armanettiís, Mundelein, IL. 7.2 % ABV. Clear dark amber hued ale having no discernable head. Soft carbonation. Toffee, sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt, burnt caramelized sugar, raisin and toffee flavor. Finishes dry with slight malt aftertaste and burnt bitterness. Some slight metallic aftertaste as well. This is a good drinkable sweet malt beer but some may find the burnt caramel flavor to be oppressive.

12 oz bottle: aroma is of caramel, malt, hints of chocolate and burnt roastedness, slightly spicy. appearance is that of brewed iced tea...little head. sweet caramelized flavors upfront with a balancing more roassted coffee like dry finish. this is a very balanced easy drinkning beer. nice full mouth feel, smooth. spicy flowery hops.

Beaver (1647) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin light tan head that quickly diminishes.

The aroma is doughy caramel and toffee with some chocolate, some spiciness comes out as it warms.

The flavor is sweet and sugary cola, some nutty malts, with a tame spicy hop finish. The alcohol is well hidden, but warming. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but very watery.

Overall, I didnít much care for this. I wasnít too impressed with the flavor or mouthfeel.

A very innovative and complex example of the style. The start is immediately sugary-sweet, but the miiddle and finish balance out the overall aim at the palate.

Looks like a pepsi or coke. Thin tan head that goes away. Aroma is malty, burnt popcorn kernals and dying campfire (Interesting). Palate is medium bodied and seemingly slick. Flavor is more subtle than one might expect having just observed its aroma. Smokey/malty is the predominant attribute, but not necessarily overpowering.

The pour reveals a clear brown color with a medium tan head. Interesting aroma of malt, molasses and raisin. Very good flavor of rich malt, molasses, raisin, thereís also mild hops and coacoa, it finishes mildly bitter and roasty. The body is mediuml and the mouthfeel is great, very creamy with a touch of dryness, the carbonation is moderate. I didnít know what to expect from this beer but Iím impressed, the malt in this beer is great.

Bottle. Poured out a cola brown color with a medium dark tan head. Aroma was heavy malt with some coffee and chocolate overtones. The flavor was quite delicious with itís nice balance of strong malt on the outset and crisp hops on the finish. In between you get some nice brown sugar, chocolate and coffee flavors to dance on the tongue. Pretty full bodied and outstandingly complex. The best Iíve had thus far from Dogfish Head.
