Poured a darker mahagony with a small tan head. Heavy brown sugar and molasses aromas. Sweet tasting (like the smells) but with a nice bitter balance. Alcohol well hidden. Another good beer from the folks at Dogfish Head.

Very dark. Ok head. Aroma is developed, nutty. Taste is malty, some dark fruits and bitter. The makings of a good beer, but it just didnít come together quite right.

I usually donít like Brown Ales, but I was intrigued by the idea of an IBA -- and was very impressed. A hoppy Brown Ale makes an Interesting brown ale with a bit of a kick. Well done and very drinkable for a brown. Will have more.

Amber ruby color with tan head & moderate carbonation. The aroma is well balanced with a nice nutty caramel body. Flavor is smokey with some alcohol & tons of caramel malts. Very balanced and tasty brown ale. I like this one! Thanks to <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=1 for the birthday beers!

Bottle: This beer is beautiful deep, dark, ruby colored ale with a small tan head that thins and lasts the whole time youíre drinking. This beer has a unique taste, probably from the strange blend(?) described. Has loads of roasted malt on the nose, caramel, vanilla, and bitter hops. Opens up sweet with caramel and malt flavors, then quickly bitters with IPA type hops taste, then if you hold it in your mouth for longer goes back to being sweet with earthy, smokey, raisin, apple, beet, and slight nut flavors. Somehow the hop bitterness seems to come and go, while the sweet flavors in this beer change in your mouth. Wonderfull. The aftertaste lingers incredibly long on this beer, with lots of chewy chocolate, and some american pale-like hops. A wonderfully complex brown ale. Maybe the best Iíve had.
