Darker Brown with a Tinge of Red Coloring. Small Head. Pretty Malty for a Brown Ale. Dry and Sweet. Decent, but Was Hoping for More.

Standard brown ale. Nothing remarkable or memorable. However, it still is a good overall beer.

badgerben (4610) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2010 Original Rating, September 10, 2004: Dark red color with a thin head. Kind of a dusty malt aroma. The taste is not like any brown Iíve had: chocolate malt? Whereís the nut flavor? Quite dry as well. Not nearly what itís hyped up to be. 7/3/6/3/13 Re-rating, February 18, 2010: Dark mahogany color with a medium head. Aroma of sugar, nuts, chocolate and quite malty. First sip, massive chalky mouthfeel. Bone dry. Almost dusty. Walnut and light chocolate flavors. Much better than I remembered.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2004 Umm, yeah. Why is this a brown ale? Iíve not had many browns, but this has all the characteristics of a stout for me. So yeah, itís a good stout.

Pours with light brown, two-fingered bubbly head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Light-medium carbonation. Light bodied. Deep amber color. Nose has a hint of hoppiness. Starts hoppy finishes like burnt coffee totally different from the usual browns (Brooklyn etc.) $2.00 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

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!

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2004
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.

pineypower (2736) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Pours a dark brown with a medium sized tan head. It has a good roasted malty flavor with some notes of sugar and hops. This is a very well balanced brown ale.
