Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet with molasses, dark fruits and cocoa. Flavor is balanced with coffee, cocoa, special-b malt? (raisins), plums, moderate amounts of spicy, floral hops. Medium to full-bodied and moderately carbonated. Leaves you lips a little sticky. A very good brown that closely resembles a porter. Iím glad it is now available in Texas so that I can put it in my rotation on occasion.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2006 Dark brown with a huge off-white head. An abundance of sweet caramel with hints of chocolate and coffee, there is also a strong presence of hops, this balance of malt and hops creates a combination that works very well. This is a fine beer, one of my new favorites.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Poursa lovely dark brown with a lasting white head. Aroma has coffee, molasses, and a good amount of hops. Sweet taste with a bitter finish. Itís always nice to read a brewers description of the flavor and agree with all they said. I didnít get much ginger in the flavor but thereís definitely coffee, molasses, rasins, and chocolate. A great interpretation of Brown Ale.

I was dissapointed with this beer. I absolutely love Dogfish, but I thought this beer was not up to their standard. It had a nice malty nose with hits of coffee and dark chocolet and pepper. The body was decent, but the flavor was just not there for me. I to me this was reminicent of a home brew trying to hit many different styles, but not hitting any one.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Deep and dark in the color with a big diminishing head. Bitter dark chocolate in the nose, roasted grain heavy in the aroma. Semi-sweet complex flavors, caramel chocolate, malts, roasted barley. Hops come through in the end, a coffee flavor lingers on the palate. AN interesting blend, very drinkable. Would be very nice with roasted poultry, will seek out again during thanksgiving a great complement.

jefcon (1595) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Very dark brown in the glass with nearly an inch of off-white head. Some lacing. Aromas are caramel, chocolate, woodsmoke and coffee, with a raisin/currant sweetness. A tnagy, dry hop bite on the taste gives way to roast coffee, chocolate, and malt. Dry finish. This is a complex brew, it’s unique, and it surely deserves better than a 3.66 average rating. There is a level of sophistication and tremendous balance that vaults this to the top of my list of browns.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 Sampler from bottle at Binnyís, Orland Park. Hmm. My first impression is that itís more like a porter than anything else. But DFH themselves lists it as a cross of three different styles, and isnít that how porter got started? Kind of lighter in malt body. As I might expect, it has a full load of hops, but theyíre more support than for conquest. And some notes of figs and perhaps a touch of cinnamon. Delicious!

FlacoAlto (4127) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Pours with a frothy four-finger thick, amber to light brown colored head. The beer is a brilliantly clear, ruby highlighted deep amber-brown color. The aroma is sweet and fruity up front with notes of caramel, cherries and a bit of sweet herbal hoppiness. The nose finishes with a light roast note that evokes thoughts of toasted bread and milk chocolate. The taste is sweet up front, and is followed quickly by very fruity notes that are reminiscent of cherries, perhaps even a bit like cough-syrup (though only lightly so). The finish is long, though not heavy handed and has an astringent roast malt character to it. This beer is quite smooth up front, but finishes with a prickle of carbonation that helps to balance the overall sweetness of the malt. The body of this is fairly light, this beer is quite quaffable. There are some hop notes here, though perhaps not as much as I was expecting from the label; there is a nice herbal quality in the middle, and the finish has a solid hop bite to it that helps to balance the sweet candied caramel note.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 19, 2005
(Bottle) Creamy tannish head on a medium brown body. Lacing good. Chocolate and coffee nose. Taste: definite sweetness at first, then some mild chocolate/coffee, then bitterness in finish. Mouthfeel kind of creamy and watery at same time. Very good, but sweetness/bitterness tug-of-war a bit much.
