Suttree (5289) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Reddish brown, with a thin head that disappears quickly. Nice aroma of fudge and alcohol, with some bourbon as well. Chocolat flavor, with and exceptionally dry finish. Strong, lingering aftertaste. Interesting and tasty brew.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Pours a hazy reddish color, with medium tan head that dissipates fast. I smell a lot of coffee, with some hints of brown sugar. A surprise to start, quite acidic. I can taste some of the traditional brown flavors in the middle, chocolate and coffee especially. A very hoppy finish makes this a very unique brew.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Dark brown, very small head. Aroma is brown sugar and hops. A very distinctive brew, with some sugary malt and caramel contrasting a acidic smokiness and bitter hops. Nice effort to come up with something different, which is this brewery's strong suit, but this one attacks with the acid and is just not balanced.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Bottle. Dark brown with some red. Aroma is a nice nutty roast. Flavor, is a sweet nutty malt. Smooth, and good, but nothing special. Good for a session beer.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Very good and very different. Dark amber brown body with good inital head that settled to almost nothing very quickly. Somewhat fruity sweet aroma with a good hop backbone. Falavor was nutty and sugarary sweet. A big oily mouth feel much like a belgian dubbel. Very good but to rich to drink to many.

Pretty good. Sugary in strange ways, similar to other dogfish head beers. A bit of a sour taste. Unique and good.

(Bottle) Pours a thin, almond head and a brown body. Nose of fresh hops. Flavours of raisins, hops and caramel malt. Good. Many thanks to Hopscotch for making this available to me...

A bit darker in color than your typical india pale ales. Very crisp, fresh hoppiness, but not overpowering. Excellent ale!

Brown in color. Hoppy and malty. Very hoppy. Its a pretty enjoyable brew. Alcohol is noticable in the flavor.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Smells of bitter chocolate, raisins, dates, malt, and hops. Dark brown with small head and strong oily lacing. Based upon the label and stated ingredients I knew this was going to be an interesting beer, and it is. Very complex flavor that initially strikes bitter senses flowing to mild sweet coffee and caramel ending with a hop bite. Very full palate of flavors from smoke, sour citrus, raisins and hints of caramel candy with very noticable alcohol presence. Very interesting brew but seems very young and unbalanced.
