A decent brew, althought I must say i would rather have the raison, or the 120 IPA, a good ale, a little to bitter for me, not to hoppy, dark for a n ale. A decent brew overal.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Not bad for a Brown Ale. Brown body with a moderate head. Aroma is malt galore with roast, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is the same with some bitterness. Donít drink it cold.

Poured brown with a thin tan head...smell is sweet and malty, smelled very similiar to the Raison díEtre...tasted a lot like a sweet scotch ale and not like a brown...raisins and hops...all I got...

Bottle. Pour is a mahogany with thick tan head. Aroma is of malts, brown sugar, raisins and a hint of coffee. Begins with some mildly sweet sugary malts and finishes with some sour hops. Finish is almost like lemon iced tea. Nice and full with some warming alcohol throughout.

My first Dogfish Head beer. Thin khaki head with one of the darkest shades of brown ive seen in a brown ale. Sweet chocolate aroma with a bit of malt thrown in. There is a little bready grain in the back ground, added with dark raisins, and a slight chocolate malt flavor. Somewhat bitter and tasting like a mild stout, but not as good as i had expected.

This is a solid brown ale. What all bron ales should aspire to come close to, then surpass. Balance is good, a little chocolate and nut in the taste.

Very good. Tasted strong at first but finished nicely. Fairly well balanced, good mouthfeel. Smell is a little strange. Overally I really enjoyed it.

tap at the saucer. a very dark brown with a thick head that ran for the hills quick. aroma is odd like an acorn or something oakey yet wet smelling. taste reminds me of the raison díetre. a bit of sweetness and some caramel. slight doughy finish.

Tejas (908) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2005 Canít put my finger on it but it smells somewhat odd. Borders on Porter qualities as far as flavors go. Smokier than other Brown Ales Iíve tried. Also, not as sweet. Itís missing that familiar nutty flavor that I"m used to in Brown Ales. Nevertheless, It is drinkable & smooth.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 This pours very dark brown with a nice but diminishing tan head. This brew is like a light porter with some hop presence. Thereís a light bitter upfront and a trail with a bit of nuttiness, plumb, and chocolate. This is good for a brown ale, but it mostly served to bore me as just another "pretty good" micro. Nothing is too special about this one.
