Nothing mild about this one! The aroma, appearance, flavor and mouth action are all potent. This ale pours deep brown with minimal head, carbonation and lacing. The brown sugar, barley and hops control the aroma, while the roasted nutty malts carry the taste. The finish is full, as the body just sits on the tongue. The hop bitterness hads a hard time overcoming the heaviness of the malt. There is just a hint of alcohol in the aroma and finish, otherwise a solid hybrid (like a Newcastle mixed with 60 Minute IPA).

Bottle. Even their Brwon ale is good. Toasty nutty, with brown sugar notes, not really sweet though, nice enough.

Very unique beer. Brown sugar nose. The name fits well. It has the hop bite of an IPA and the smooth richness of a brown ale. Also lots of coffee taste. I enjoyed this beer very much, so many different tastes to experience.

Lubiere (11382) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2004
Deep brown ale with thick light brown head.Caramel aroma with light floral hops. More pronouncer torrefied malt with nuts, and pleasant bitterness. Woody notes in the end. Nice bodied beer, well balanced and pleasant.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Creamy off-white head on a clear dark mahogany body. Aroma is nice... a bit of maple, coffee-like malt, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a good enough brown ale. Sweet dull coffee, piney hops. Kind of a creamy palate. Good all around beer.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2004 Deep auburn in color with a durable, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, brown sugar and mild background hops. Smooth mouthfeel due to body and restrained carbonation. Toasty malt tones dominate flavor with a medium pleasant bitter hop finish. A very interesting combination of styles which I think DFH pulls of quite admirably. 7.2% alcohol shows a mild warming effect. Good Stuff!!

Dark red-brown color with a good head. Clean malty smell. Fills and warms the mouth. Taste of roasted malts and caramel with significant hops to really add character. Good beer.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Original Rating 4-4-6-4-2 Fort Wayne Ale Fest 2004. This bottled brew poured a small head of finely sized light brown colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was softly carbonated transparent and brown colored. The aroma was mild with malty notes and the mouth feel was smooth mildly tingly and left a finish of lingering malts and hops. OK, but not as good as I had expected form such a wonderful brewer as DFH. Rerate 7-5-8-5-16

Deep brownish red color with thick lasting head. Aroma is predominantly malty. Very nice balance to this beer with a slight aftertaste of the hops. Excellent beer overall.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2004
A good dark pour with a lasting tan head. Perhaps over hopped, the malt tastes of the barley and the caramel of the brown sugar didn’t come through. I should have been forewarned by the India in the title. The aftertaste was that of the hops
