Nice looking beer...Aroma was also very nice heavy with caramel. Flavor wasa bit tough to place and not what I was expecting. Very full body that carried the rich flavors of this brew quite well.

Roasty hoppy nose. Very roasty taste with some coffee. finishes kind of malty and with some hops. Kind of expected a little more, but its definitely unique and different.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle, shaker glass. Nutty, caramel, roasted grain malt (M); earthy, herby hops (L); plum, smoke, brown sugar aromas. Aroma is oddly soft considering the abv and "Indian" moniker. Tall, craemy, off-white head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep brown-amber body. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately bitter finish. Malty sweetness upfront turns in to caramelized brown sugar sweetness in the finish. Coffee notes appear in the finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: damn tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
