UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 Dogfish is a great brewery in my opinion, though they do get a bit weird. I have to give them credit for making a very tasty beer in a style that I am not overly fond of. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a ruby-mahogany color with a large creamy tan head that lingered for quite some time. The aroma is both sweet and smoky. The palate is thick like most Dogfish Head brews (which happens to be an aspect that I am very fond of.) The flavor was sweet, nutty and smoky. A slightly bitter toasted malt flavor lingered on the aftertaste. Brown ales are not one of my favored styles, but this one was pretty good considering this.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 31, 2004
Deep mahogany brown with offwhite head. Aroma of roasted nuts, toffee, coffee, carmel, and tootsie roll. Medium mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Flavors of light roasted coffee, carmel, very creamy mouthfeel, with a finish that lingers and dances on and on. The hops begin to show a bit as it warms they leave a dry/bitter finish that is not distracting but helps to cleanse the palate of all the heavey roasted flavors. Beautiful, and satisfying beer!

Pours a dark brown, glows red in the light, with a small tan head that falls quickly. Great roasty malt flavors and aroma with a well balanced taste and smooth body. Slight toffee taste towards the end with some nice finishing hops to balance.

Deep brown with a lacy tan head. Lots of roasted malt in the flavor without being overpowering. Sweet and sugary with a very mild hop aftertaste. Very smooth and tasty.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, not much of a head to speak of. Roasted malt aroma. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth. Hops are not overwhelming but present. Very nicely done.

Nice brown color, with a short lived head. Sweet roasty and caramel aromas. Taste is also roasted malt, sugar, coffee and nutty as well. Very enjoyable experience.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Pours a dark brown, iwth a nice toffee colored head. Has the caramel aroma that I expect from a brown ale, but there are hops hiding there as well. Shares the roastiness and coffee notes of a porter with some pretty agressive hopping. Very nice.

A hopped up brown ale. Dark brown color. Good caramel malt aroma coupled with hop aroma. Good deal of bitterness in there also, but not too much. Full mouthfeel.
