BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2004 12oz Bottle packaged in Nov. 03 Finally DFH is available in Florida! This one poured a deep mahogany brown with a fairly good size head that has some staying power. Aroma is a nutty malty one with a slight roastiness and a bit of yeast as well. Body is medium and very smooth. Flavor is lacking a bit. Some roasted malt but no sign of brown sugar detected. Alcohol is well masked. A tad too bitter also. Overall a fair brew yet not something I'd drink on a regular basis.

zach8270 (3366) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a deep brown/mahogany with a thick and fluffy tan head. Aroma of malt mixed with hazelnut. You can definitely detect the Scotch Ale in the taste followed up by a malty and bitter finish.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Has a sharp hazelnut and sugar aroma and has a trace of the Scotch Ale with brown sugar in its flavor along with the IPA bite. Another winner from Dogfish Head.

TAR (2435) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Clear, light russet. Well retained creamy, sandy-layered foam. Succulent raisiny/toffee malt aroma highlighted by dark cane sugar, bandage, root, and leafy hop undertones. Simultaneously rich and rounded as the malts are slightly raw and powdery. Mellow thickness on the tongue. Creamy carbonation. Fresh, raw malt flavors and mild medicine at the forefront capped with a leather, mineral, and raisin twinge. Leafy hops slice through the sweetness with ease as the woody yeast character lends a bit of dryness. Finishes richly malty, rooty, and lightly grainy with a banadage, medicine, cane sugar, and hazelnut coffee trailing. Stupendous strong brown ale with remarkably-composed sweetness.

Britales (56) - Cape Charles, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Most of the British style beers from Dogfish tend to be a bit fuller and rounder in style than would be one from "across the pond" and this is not the exception.This has a clean roasty finish and a great nose!It sure does not taste as big as 7.2% so tread lightly if you are whipping through them!

A very interesting brown, not your usual nut flavors or thin flavor. Dry finish and the 7% sneaks up on you

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2004
Nice brown body with a respectable smooth beige head. Aroma is muted with a bit of roasty malt that makes its return in the flavour. Not as bitter as expected, but a nice dry finish that only begins to hint at the alcohol content. Aftertaste seems a bit more complex than the main flavour profile. Sort of hard to wrap your head around but a nice beer. Brown sugar isn't really apparent until the beer has had a chance to warm up.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Bottled. Attractive ruby brown in color. Stong Malt & Molasses aroma. Slight initial hops flavor is quickly overwhelmed by rich roasted malts and caramel. Excellent beer - right now this is my favorite brown ale.

WabashMan (1009) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Really a very nice example of a brown, in my opinion. Good aroma, a nice flavor, and good overall color.

fasteddieIX (55) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Pours a dark, slightly translucent brown, with about a 1/2'' head. A malty aroma is complimented by flavors of caramel, burnt sugar, and hops. Quite comperable to a scotch ale, and generally, very, very good.
