Pours dark brown with a decent tan head. Real nutty aroma with caramel and brown sugar. The brown sugar is the predominant taste here. Lighter on hops than I expected. Good deal of carbonation but it works for this beer. Finishes nice and flavorful. Good beer.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) This is a fine example of the completely disrespectful way American brewers approach traditions. From the name you would expect this to be a hybrid between a Brown Ale and an IPA, but the brewery claims it to be a hybrid between a Scotch Ale, a American Pale Ale and an IPA. But a curious hybrid it is. Very dark mahogany, brownish head, very malty (burned malt). The 50 IBU are pretty well hidden underneath the sweetness of the malt - to some extent. Quite an extreme brew.

Maybe it was my six-pack, but I found the malty character of this beer to outweigh the hops, which made me feel jipped because I was promised a cross-breed beer. Just the same, I liked the beer all right. Maybe I’ll try it as it is intended later.

Cellar Temp. Dark brown. Butter and caramel aroma. Decent residual head. Very well done. Figs and smooth malt lay across a sweet backbone of brown sugar. Superbly balanced. After effects are consuming. A home run for the brewery that swings at everything.

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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2005
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. Don’t drink it cold.

Poured brown with a thin tan head...smell is sweet and malty, smelled very similiar to the Raison d’Etre...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.
