This is a unique and, IMHO, most excellent brew. It is, indeed, different. I've never had anything quite like it and that may put some off...but I find it delicious and quite drinkable. Very good.

This is an interesting taste, but not surprising coming from dogfish head. There is a chocolate taste and a little java hint. The sweet bitter taste was very welcome. It was a good topper to the evening of good eats and better beer.

Dark brown color, thick head, and a sweet caramel aroma. Sweet roasted malts and bitter hops flavor make this beer unique.

Indra (2591) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Cocoa, caramel, faint roastiness and darkly sweet malt in the aroma. Dark red-brown in color, filtered. Roasty, toasty malt, breadiness, slightly burnt brown sugar, earthy coffee grounds and a healthy dosage of hop bitterness and spice all enter the picture at once. Finish is bittersweet and body is medium-full, surprisingly light and carbonated on the palate. Different and tasty.

Stunning clarity in this copper body. Aroma is spicy hops. The malt is rich and complex: lots of Scottish peat, smoke, hop spice and a little fruit. This is excellent beer. The problem is that it should be compared to Scottish Ale rather than Brown Ale--it's so damned rich, other browns wouldn't have a chance. Wow. Funny, but this reminds me of a really good Doppelbock.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 When I think "dogfish head", I think IPA, and this brown definately has roots of an IPA, very hoppy, but unique... it kinda grows on you! The brown sugar / molasses aroma is very nice!

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Wow, a great deal of complxity. Goregeous lace, a tan tight head, very deep mahogany color. Well roasted and nutty nose with hints of toffee. Very nutty flavor, followed by a well balanced, long drawn out finish. Hints of sweet milk chocolate and plenty of caramel. Only hints of the 7.2 %. Velvety soft, nice and roastey palate among the well hopped finish. Great balance, lots of complexity, awesome brew.

This beer has great color and a very nice flavor. It's similar to a nut brown ale but you can also detect the Scotch Ale, IPA and APA styles. Good quality beer.

I think that this could still be considered a true brown ale- it still has lots of characteristics ofo a brown. Dark brown color with a off white/beige head. Great aroma of hops and nutty malts. Loaded with flavor.

Beautiful caramel colored beer with a thick and creamy head. A very sweet beer. Almost tasted like a light version of the Dogfish World Wide Stout. A good beer to share with a friend but not the type that you would have 3 in one sitting.
