Brown-red with a brown head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of malt and licorice. Plum aroma comes to the party as it warms. Rather high carbonation initially. Letting it die down, more flavors become distinguishable: raisin, Red Delicious apple skins, brown sugar. Dry finish is somewhat alcoholic. Too cold or straight out the bottle, this beer is no good. But let it warm and the carbonation settle down, and it is quite delicious.

Poured a reddish amber color with little head. Aroma is very nutty. Smells comforting and homey. Flavor is nutty, with some roasted woody flavors to boot. Great smooth mouthfeel with a semi-dry finish. Alcohol warming also evident on the swallow.

(Bottle) Brown ale that pours with little to no head. Medium body with a descent flavor with a hint of brown sugar.

Here's a brown ale that doesn't particularly impress me. Appearance is medium with a sticky head that is thin as a film from the beginning, not quite what I look for in a beer of this type. Aroma is hops and chocolate. The taste is very malty, quite chocolate and toffee sweet, but plenty of balancing hop character keeps it off being cloying. 7.2% ABV is to be found nowhere. The medium body is pretty good and fitting as well. Still, I must say I'd have prefered a more intense aroma. I also found it less and less interesting after each sip, perhaps the balance is not so good after all. It remains stylish and original like any Dogfish, but it's definitely not one of their best. Thank you Egajdzis

Goot malt flavors. A good looking beer but too sweet for my taste. I expected to like it more than I did.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 More flavor than most other brown ales. The hoppy finish really helped this one out. I don't usually like brown ales but this isn't too bad.

HighlanderOne (1009) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Nice stuff. Looks like stained oak in the glass, and has a sort of woody flavor. Good hop/malt balance. Another winner by DFH.

I must admit it took me a while to tune my tastebuds for this ale. I've never been a fan of brown ales, and even though I see this is a well made brew, I find the carmelized brown sugar malt flavor a little harsh. This ale does have a nice bitter finish that saves it a little for me though.

I enjoyed this brown ale. Right amount of sweetness and bite. Very good brown ale, not like anything ive had before.
