Dark Amber color with a thick tan head. Aroma is nutty, with a nice roasted malt character (chocolate, coffee, and caramel) along with some floral hops. Very balanced flavor. Lots of malts with a strong coffee taste and hints of chocolate, nuts, smoke, and caramel. There is also a lot of hops present - spices and grassy with a bitter alcohol biting finish. A great and complex brown ale.

A little darker than Coke to my eye. Fantastic but contradictory nose with a little hop spice mixed in with a roasted malt essence. Nice on the tongue. Reminds me favorably of Smuttynose Porter. Pretty great.

Looks like coke with a nice tan head. Flavor is very nice but a little on the hoppy side which is a trait im starting to savor. Chocolaty with hints of coffee. Aroma is that of semisweet choclate. wonderful!

A chocolatey and malty smooth beer, yet also pleasantly bitter. Its resembles as stout when it first hits your mouth, but finishes like an IPA. My favorite of the dogfish head so far. Very unique.

12oz bottle-pours arich light brown head and color is black with a tint of red. Aroma is malt, dark malt with coffee notes. Taste is dark malt, creamy, good carbonation, backed up by hops. Builds a coffee aftertaste as I progress through the beer. This style is not quite my taste, but well done, good occasional beer.

Pours a very dark brown ruby color with a fizzing beige head. Aroma is malty, nutty, slightly chocolaty with a hint of smoke to it. Taste is malty, nutty with hints of coffee,caramel,chocolate and toffee. This beer has grown on me and I tend to like it a lot more now than before.

bottle. nice brown color, clear hoppy scent. Not really what I was expecting... smooth and drinkable but not especially to my liking.

Bottle. Nutty, has a little bite to it. Rich mouth feel. Pretty tasty, more character and flavor than most other brown ales I’ve had.High alcohol content is well masked.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Dark dark brown to black, minimal fizzy brown head. Aroma of caramel and most strongly of coffee. Got my mouth watering. Flavor is of caramel malts, chocolate and coffee bitter. A little bit of alcohol. Dominant flavor is of a sweet cup of coffee. Great beer. Haven’t had one like this in a while. The palate is a bit disappointing though.
