Dark brown color with a creamy off white head. Appetizing roasted, sweet, caramel malts. There is a layer of hops underneath the sweetness as this warms. The first sip is sweet then the bitterness comes forward and stays there. A dry finish. Very strong alcohol aroma last 1/4 of the beer. A good brown. Of my mix six of Dogfish(RaisonD'etre, Pale ale, and this brown) the brown is the best, but none of them are worth the $10/six.

Beautiful brown colour with a nice beige head and decent lacing. Very good sweetish aroma with caramel and hints of coffee. Flavour is initially quite sweet and malty. Smooth, but maybe not perfectly balanced palate. The mix of styles results in an interesting, medium bitter finish.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Deep ruby red body with a thin tan head. Nice lacing.
Smells malty with lots of coffee notes. Very grainy smell.
Malty taste. Slight hop astrigency with a nice, warm finish. Hops do become apparent in the aftertaste. Noble variety?
Smooth, full-bodied ale. Reminds me of the body of a porter.

The roasted malt and coffee overtones hit me pretty strong in the nose. The brownish off white head lasts quite awhile and laces down the glass. Color comes in dark brown with a bit of thinning around the edges. This has a very mellow taste...a hint of roasted dark malt, backed up by a tease of orange citrus. The hops are hardly there. This is a nicely balanced beer that goes down pretty easy.

2/14/03: bottle. nice rocky, tan head. good amount of lacing. deep dark brown color- full bodied. malty nose with notes of hops. wonderful, dark malt flavor with aftertastes of hops. tones of caramel and coffee also come through. a tiny bit bitter. remarkably designed brew which includes a superb presentation (excellent label.) i will definitely drink this one again.

Good god was this a amazing brew. A brown IPA tast that was underscored with appropriate levels of intense hops and caramel notes. OVerevall a phenomenal brew.

This was a refreshing surprise in many ways. It is a very drinkable beer from Dogfish Head. Not a single bottle that packs the kick of a six-pack, like Raison d'extra, nor a beer that you could right a masters thesis about, like World Wide Stout. Just a really good, really drinkable beer. Also, an American India Ale that is not so hopped that it coats your gums, or hopped to the max with orange, pine, and grapefruit with pacific north west varieties. It greats you with a dark reddish brown pour, almost clear, little head. The nose says sweet malt and hops. The mouth is a little thin. The taste is nicely balanced between sweetness, malt, and classic floral European hops in moderation. If the ABV were lower this would be an easy drinking session beer. As it is, it is a really plesant brew.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 WOw. Dogfish in Dan Siego, I never could have guessed or imagined, great though, Very hoppy, but mostly towards the end. Great mixture of the carmel and Choco. great beer, great beer.

a fine brew as expected from DoggyFishy. I am yet again pleased. Prefer Raison or Immort, but its hard to beat a stout. Pours easy and sips well. a good smoking drink. a nice sweet stout taste with a bit of hops in the background an ingenious design yet again

Deep ruby brown color with a big mocha head. Sweet caramel and light coffee nose. Complex flavors: a little chocolate, a hint of coffee and a touch of burnt sugar. A nice bitter sweet aftertaste. An awesome brew, but kinda pricey.
