Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Nice dark brown color,small head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was Malty and chocolate with maybe a hint of coffee.The flavor was very roasty with a nice medium strong coffe taste and a mild presence of hops soming on at the tail end.There is a slightly bitter side to this brew but it doesn't get into the overpowering range,but manages to stay fiarly balanced with all the other flavors.There is a mild amount of alcohol coming through in the taste as the brew warms up.The after taste is mild and coffee with a slight bitter finish.Over all a fairly decent brew and worth having again.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Dark mahogany brew. Fizzy,medium head. Aroma is sweet,very malty(nuts,caramel,toast) with a good backing of hops. Full,clean,velvet mouthfeel. Malty and slightly bitter up front. Tons of nuts,malt follow,and coat the tounge. Finish is malty as hell,with lots of leafy hops. Very well balaned,and quite delicious. Excellent beer.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 My first Dogfishhead beer. Smelled like a porter/stout. Not what I expected. My first taste also - dry, with smokey, roasty notes. It got sweeter as I continued drinking, and the caramel flavours started to apears. The aftertaste is hoppy. An interesting, tasty beer.

Bottle packaged in 10. Citrus lemon/lime/grapefruit. Carmel/brown sugar in the nose. Clear brownish orange color. Small head. Burnt carmel,grapefruit, a little sugar sneaks in. Medium body with lingering bitter finish. I like it, though I could see it being to bitter for some.

Aha! Finally a brown ale that isn't for the pansies! Most brewers think that they can get away with taking a standard ale and giving it a bit of a smokey espresso flavor (like lame beers such as Goose Island Hex Nut and their Christmas brew). Where is the kick? Dogfish Head gets this one right. Starts smooth and slightly malty and finishes with a slightly bitter kick from wonderful hops. Good because it isn't too malty or smokey. This one doesn't let you down with the alcohol, either. The extra hops definately take what I think is normally a boring style, and take it up a notch.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Mostly opaque coloring, with overtones of brown and red. Has a minimal head that disipates after a few minutes. Starts off with a slight taste of hops which is quickly gone after the taste gets past your tongue. The hops as well disipate after a few minutes. Tastes of caramel and maybe a hint of chocolate. Generally smooth.

Deep amber/brown body, tan head. Sweetness in the nose. Caramel, perhaps. Great flavor. Combines sweet and spicy overtones. Good stuff.
