A very dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. The aroma is nicely balanced and complex. Dark chocolate, coffee, sweetness of raisins, some freshness of lemon and bready malts. Taste has bread, dark fruits, some chocolate, nice bitterness, quite dry. Medium bodied, nice and smooth to drink. Complex but balanced beer. Very good.

Pours the darkest brown, this smells of carmelized goodness. So malty and smooth with rich flavors of roast and molasses. Not usually a fan of Dogfish brews, but this is one of the finest ales.

355ml bottle from Saveur-Biere
Bottled 07/19/14 - Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma of caramely malts, syrup, toffee, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet, stuffy and malty with some syrup, licorice, toffee and caramely notes. Finish is sweetish, syrupy and malty with some hints of hops, licorice and coffee. A bit too sweet and syrupy for my taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pours a dark brown with a rather minimal tan head. Aroma is of coffee and hops, very pleasant. Taste is very much of coffee and bitter hops with a bit of malty sweetness and dark chocolate. Carbonation is light and it has a rather full body. Finish is long with bitterness followed by sweetness then becoming a bit astringent. A rather complex beer that has a lot going on. To me it tastes like a porter, an IPA, and a Scotch ale were crossed. A very good beer that mixes a few different styles and succeeds mightily at it.

Bottle. Dark brown. Hoppy, burnt sugar, malty, chocolate finish, smooth texture. A classic brown ale that I often overlook. Extremely well made and balanced.

Un intreccio sensazionale tra il caramellato di una scotch ale, il luppolo trionfante e la nocciola e toffee di una brown ale. Risultato: atomico!!

It’s a great one, like a black IPA it has very strong roasty malts fighting for supremacy with hops. If you’re feeling in a mood for hoppy beer it’s great, and if you’re feeling in the mood for malty beer, it’s great. This is the Dogfish Head brew I would take any time.
