Pours dark brown with no head. Has very little aroma of malt and a nice flavor of malt and brown sugar.

This Brown ale confuses me a bit. I just finished a Dogfish Chicory Stout and except for the Chicory and a bit more hops, I’m seeing the same beer. Burnt coffee flavor, chocolate. The hops are certainly not hiding in this brown ale. A bit too sweet for me. Nothing wrong here except perhaps originality.

Brown pour, slightly off-white head. Malty nose, but then the taste is overcome by the hops. It’s very thick in texture for as hoppy as it is, but a very enjoyable beer. It’s a shame it’s not available in NC. Well described by the brewer

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Poured brown with some red hues, with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt with an edge of hopes. Tastes starts with malt but quickly dissolves to a dry hop bitterness. This was much hoppier than I expected, and quite frankly not as enjoyable as I’d hoped.

I liked the more unique flavors of this brew, definately an original. I always find myself comoparing one beer to another but I was pleasantly surprised with this. The commercial description is very true to well, the truth, so I would just say to read that...my experience exactly. very good!

bottle. Redish deep brown color, with a tan head that goes off quickly. Smeels like brown sugar and malt and something i cant figure out (leather). Well hoped, taste like brown sugar a a hint of grapefruit and the alcohol is srtong on the finish (7.2%) and this beer makes my mouth dry. Nice beer but nothing extraordinary. Cette biere est d’un brun tres fonce, presque noire, avec des reflets rouge mais, sont collet est tres mince et disparait rapidement. Odeur de malt et et de sucre (cassonade) et quelque cuose comme le cuir, je nai pu determiner ce que c’etait. Au gout, elle a une bonne amertume, cassonade et un gaout assez prononcer qui s’apparente au pamplemousse mais, l’alcool est tres presente (7.2%) en fin de bouche et cette biere donne tres soif (dry). C’est bien mais rien d’extraordinaire.

Brown color, with reddish tint and lush tan head. In the beginning I was getting a lot of chocolate malt taste and some extra sweetness. Roasted taste in the palate along with caramel. As I kept drinking it tasted the hops more and more. Just about right for the sweetness. A well made beer. A little too sweet for me to drink all the time.

A great change on A IPA. The brown color and roaster malt along with the finishing hops makes this beer a great choice. An IPA with a great body. This hophead loved the brown IPA.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2004
Bottled. Very dark brown. Roasty, syrupy and nutty nose with that familiar DF-character, caramel is also apparent. Flavour is very roasty and tarry. Body is lively. Overall quite dry, especially in the finish.
