[Bottle] Strong malt flavor, sweet at first, then more coffee/molasses emerges. Excellent overall, as with most DFHís. Iíll more than likely buy this again.

Bottle. A nice dark brown color. Malty and nutty flavor. Not my favorite DFH beer but itís a nice one. Itíll keep you nice and warm with the alcohol.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 pour dark amberish with a nice lasting head, smell of roated malts, good body and a decent bite, i was a little disappointed by it, yet it is still drinkable.

Zeswaft (1455) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2007 Dark brown and no head. Smells like roasted malt and coffee. Tastes like a cross between a Brown ale and a porter with an alcohol bite on the after taste. mediocre. I donít know where they get the IPA thing from. I wish there were some IPA elements. It gets a little better as it warms up Rerate. This is quite fantastic. A very rich and syrupy flavor. Lots of chocolate and coffee. So thick and sweet Iíd put it closest to an imperial stout. a good amount of hopiness. man, this is good. a nice substitute for an impy stout if you donít want the high abv or calories but still want the flavor.

Bottled. Amber, beige head. Vegetable-notes and some chocolate in the aroma. Rather dry. Slaty and burnt with chocolate and coffee.

Big chocolate whiff as soon as the bottle had been poured. More direct smelling gives more chocolate, brown sugar, maybe some hickory, a touch of marshmellow. Cloudy dark brown beer with little head and no lacing. Nice and gooey on the lips although in the mouth felt a little overcarbonated, but still round and full. Taste of chocolate, sour grapes, a little hop bitterness at the end. This brown didnít really do it for me: I think theyíve done a little too much hopping.

maximusud (27) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Medium bodied brown ale, starts with a hint of nuts. Continues with a bit of chocolate and finishes in a subtle bitterness that slightly resonates on the palate. A nice beer to sip.

MaltOne (267) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2005
One of the better brown ales Iíve had. Like most Dogfish, a modest head, cream tinged with brown. Overall color a deep genuine brown. Light aroma. Nice balance of malt and hops, with hops edging out the malt. A slightly sweet start, wrapped in a nutty, roasty body finishing bitter. Moderate body. Overall pleasing drink. A beer to savor rather then guzzle.

Iím not usually a big fan of brown ales, but DogfishHead has made one that I think I can grow to like. You have to stick your nose into this one to appreciate the wonderful brown sugar aroma. However, I think the flavor is a bit too sweet and sticky for me. Overall, a good beer.
