(bottled). Bright mahogany with frothy white head. Vinuous, malty aroma. Medium-full bodied with strong malt and caramel overtones. Assertive bitterness balances the maltiness perfectly and persists long into the finish with a spiciness that's either alcohol or hops. Strongly recommended!

Great tasting Ale! Not the best Dogfish beer I've had but a tasty treat indeed. Good nutty taste with the right amount of bitterness.

Indian brown has a malt/raisin aroma and a big chocolate malt flavor. Another great beer from Dogfish Head.

a great beer (especially to get the crappy taste of that Stone IPA out of my mouth). nice malty coffey-ee, chocolately aroma that was a good precursor to the actual taste. now i don't like coffey (i love the smell but hate the taste), but i like this beer. wicked gwood stuff.

coffe color with good head. coco coffee malty aroma. chocolate, citrus, nutty, malty taste. tingley, bitter and acoholic palate. this is a great tasting beer that doesn't have too many different flavors going on at once. Highly recomended.

BtownBrewer (91) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Medium to dark amber in color. Pours a thick light tan head. Pleasantly malty and bitter at the same time, but the flavor is short lived. Finish is almost clean, but with a lingering bitterness at the back of my throat

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.

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.
