Bought in the 12 oz brown bottle..with the simple Dogfish Head label "A clean,well hopped brown ale with aromatic barley and carmelized brown sugar and whole leaf liberty and Goldings hops" Well should be quite a expierience! This brew has a wonderous appearance, pours a deep dark brown with a luscious creme coloured head that fades to a gorgeous lace down my glass. Great aroma of the carmelized sugar hits me as does the malts well done. Well I expected a taste adventure and boy oh boy did I get it! The malts show through and seem well toasted..nice coffee and liquorice//dark unsweetned chocolate tastes..then the wonderful hops take over nice fantastic in fact. very smooth on the tongue i like this. A most wonderful and very drinkable "mutant" style beer I say "mutant" because this appears to be a mutaion of a Nut brown ale and a strong IPA..a whole new species has evolved!!!

Poured a reddish brown color with a fluffy light tan head an dnice lacing. Roasted coffee, malt, and alcohol in the aroma. Sweet taste included hints of nuts, caramel, brown sugar, and hops all over. Slightly roasty finish.

On tap at the Moan and Dove. Dark ruby brown color with light tan head. This is certainly not a simple brown ale, but what else would you call it. Thick, heavy, almost too sweet however. Lots of malt with almost a Belgian or dubbel feel.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Pours clear medium brown with a thin disappearing head. It has a slight roast character to it. The 7.2% abv gives it a little extra kick. It has a slighly hoppier flavor than most brown ales. It was good, but not monumental.

Big off white frothy head mostly lasting on a deep garnet to brown body. Nice malty roasty aroma and taste. Moderately Sweet with a little hoppyness in the finish. A decent effort and this is my 200th.

Brown-red with a brown head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of malt and licorice. Plum aroma comes to the party as it warms. Rather high carbonation initially. Letting it die down, more flavors become distinguishable: raisin, Red Delicious apple skins, brown sugar. Dry finish is somewhat alcoholic. Too cold or straight out the bottle, this beer is no good. But let it warm and the carbonation settle down, and it is quite delicious.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Poured a reddish amber color with little head. Aroma is very nutty. Smells comforting and homey. Flavor is nutty, with some roasted woody flavors to boot. Great smooth mouthfeel with a semi-dry finish. Alcohol warming also evident on the swallow.

(Bottle) Brown ale that pours with little to no head. Medium body with a descent flavor with a hint of brown sugar.

Here's a brown ale that doesn't particularly impress me. Appearance is medium with a sticky head that is thin as a film from the beginning, not quite what I look for in a beer of this type. Aroma is hops and chocolate. The taste is very malty, quite chocolate and toffee sweet, but plenty of balancing hop character keeps it off being cloying. 7.2% ABV is to be found nowhere. The medium body is pretty good and fitting as well. Still, I must say I'd have prefered a more intense aroma. I also found it less and less interesting after each sip, perhaps the balance is not so good after all. It remains stylish and original like any Dogfish, but it's definitely not one of their best. Thank you Egajdzis
