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.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2006 Pours a nice dark brown color with a merangue looking beige head. Slightly sweet, yet mild aroma. Does taste hoppier than it looks . I still taste the carmel maltiness but there is enough hops in the end to make this beer interesting. I really like this

Bottle. Nice dark rootbeer/cherry cola color. The head comes out lumpy and frothy staying for a nice long time and with great sticky lacing... this one may be good. Nose is coffee and sweet malt, not much hop aroma although this beer is supposed to be rather hoppy...? Taste of coffee and nice slightly bitter finish of sweet caramel and a burnt sugar taste - good! Mouthfeel is full- bodied and finely bubbled - nice, nice beer!!

Sweet caramel nose with hints of hops. Great mahogany color with a thin tan head. Sweet caramel flavor with notes of hops and the finish.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2004
This is an unusual Brown Ale. The beer pours with a smaller head than would be anticipated from a Brown Ale. The Caramel and maltiness is there, but I was expecting more hops from the "India" part. Not quite a Brown Ale, not quite a dark IPA. Different, but a beer that I better with each tasting.

Nice looking beer...Aroma was also very nice heavy with caramel. Flavor wasa bit tough to place and not what I was expecting. Very full body that carried the rich flavors of this brew quite well.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2004 dark ruby brown in colour with a thin tan/gray head. Rich roasted malts in the nos and just awesome malts and hop balance in the flavour. Very easy to drink and very fun

Roasty hoppy nose. Very roasty taste with some coffee. finishes kind of malty and with some hops. Kind of expected a little more, but its definitely unique and different.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2004
12 oz bottle, shaker glass. Nutty, caramel, roasted grain malt (M); earthy, herby hops (L); plum, smoke, brown sugar aromas. Aroma is oddly soft considering the abv and "Indian" moniker. Tall, craemy, off-white head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep brown-amber body. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately bitter finish. Malty sweetness upfront turns in to caramelized brown sugar sweetness in the finish. Coffee notes appear in the finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: damn tasty.
