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.

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.

dogfish head - amazing beer - without question. everything they put out is great. Swet aroma - strong complex dark deep rich flavor. And a slow lingering rich after taste - grreat beer

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Pours a dark brown with a small white head. Malty with notes of brown sugar and coffee and hazelnut. Strong taste of alcohol.

marcus (8685) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 9, 2005
On tap at the Map Room in Chicago. This brown ale poured with a fluffy tan head - it took a while to pour. There was a very malty sweet flavor with a slightly chalky finish. This beer tastes a lot like Loterbol Bruin (the brownest of the brown ales), but is not quite as rich.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Bottle. Poured a deep reddish-brown with a moderate layer of toffee-colored head. Aroma was of coffee and cereal malts, brown sugar, and toffee. Quite sticky on the palate, with lots of sweetness in there (chocolate, molasses, and caramel), semi-fresh coffee grind, and a roasted nuttiness. Medium-bodied, and not a whole lotta carbonation in there. It worked well with the flavors slowly creeping through the mouth. Nice finish of roasted barley and sweet molasses.
