Fatehunter (1951) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a clear brown body. The aroma is toast (almost burnt), wood, brown sugar, caramel and raisins. The taste roasted malt, then some pine bitterness, big dose of caramel sweet and a bite of grapefruit to finish. The texture is crisper. It’s pretty good.

_angst_ (4128) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle bought @ Kihoskh. Pours hazy brown with a small frothy beige head that quickly dissipates while leaving lots of spotty sticky trace on the glass. Smell is malty, grassy and tiny fruity with dark bread, caramel, chocolate fudge, grapefruit juice, moist grass, pine needles, moist soil and lemon zest. Taste is sweet. bitter, malty, grassy, earthy and tiny fruity. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, moist grass, pine needles, cocoa powder, moist soil, lemon zest and hints of cardboard. Solid hoppy brown if a bit old with faded hops. Solid but had higher hopes.

Una gran combinación entre IPA y Brown Ale. Notas a nuez y caramelo en nariz, tiene un amargor moderado, hace sentir el lúpulo sin incomodar. Gran cerveza, peligrosamente bebible.

Sirmixsomewhat (169) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
I love the smell of coffee and hate the taste of it. This beer is a pint of cold coffee in smell and in taste, and because it’s so strong on the coffee notes, it’s not palatable to someone like me. I can appreciate the craft here, but I can’t drink this beer.

Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale can best be described as IPA meets really good brown ale. Dark brown pour with a light tan head that sticks. Aroma is hoppy, nutty and roasty. Taste is nutty caramel flavor with just enough hop kick. IBA hits all the right notes to give a tremendously balanced brew.

Draught at the Beavertown Brewery taproom on 26-Sep-2015 as part of the Rainbow Project. Good brown colour with a tan coloured bead. Softly carbonated. Flavour of caramel, coffee, malt and hops. A really nice imperial brown ale with a lot of flavour.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a cloudy head. Smells like burnt caramel. Taste a bit of coffee with a dark roast aftertaste. Mouth feel was okay.

12oz bottle poured right down my gullet. Aromas of brown ale roastiness, chocolate malt, and caramel. Mild to medium bitter. Tasty.
