A very nice darker ale. I did not feel the alcohol either. Definitely worth trying.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2003
Pours out very dark brown with a nice long lasting tan head. The nose is full of roasted malt. More roasted malt taste than I expected from a brown ale, but there is also a nice sweetness coming through from the brown sugar. The ABV is surprisingly high on this, because the alcohol is not noticed at all. A nice unique brown ale

VAYankee (327) - Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Pours very dark brown, with a full tan head(it looks like a porter). Exhibits a rich smell of both hops and malt. Starts out hoppy(slightly bitter), goes down smooth and leaves a dry roasted malt(subtley nutty) aftertaste with a touch of lingering hops. Exactly the unique spin that I have come to expect from Dogfish.

guzzler67 (1484) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Dark as a porter. Roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate nose. Medium-bodied, with a well rounded hoppy taste and a nutty aftertaste. 7.2 abv? You won't notice it.

jjw2000 (72) - USA - MAY 25, 2003
Rich clear mahogony color with a tan head. Somewhat sweet nutty and hoppy aroma. Smooth, rich, and roasted, the flavor is of caramel and some nuts. Initial malty sweetness tapers to a pleasantly bitter roasted nutty finish.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 19, 2003
This beer pours very dark brown with moderate head that quickly disappears. The aroma is of hops with slightly malty undertones and hints of alcohol. Extremely smooth taste and very easy to drink. Hints of nuts in the flavor. Very good brown ale.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2003
A very unique beer, dark brown in color hoppy with moderate bitterness and a hint of chocolate, well done and worth drinking!

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2003
As usual another very good Dogfish Head brew. So far haven't found one i didn't like. Wonderful sweet aroma, nice roasted nut and chocolate flavor. This is so smooth and enjoyable!

Eirikur (362) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 16, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 This is really a mix. All the flavours collecting together. A smoky aftertaste is really dominating, and this is a fine allround ale.

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Not quite a brown ale as advertised. Aroma is malty and slightly smokey. Appeareance is brown, are you surprised? Flavor has a hint of malt and chocolate with a sour and slightly hoppy flavor. A good beer but not quite as flavorful as the Raison D'Etre.
