Deep brown color with a rapidly diminishing head. Powerful aroma of brown sugar and burnt caramel, with a faint hop lingering in the end. The description says well hopped but I didn’t seem to notice in the flavor. Giant sugary sweet malt with a bit of spice, clean warming finish. This is one that I could drink all night long.

Has a deep amber color and a hops smell. Taste is mildly roasted/hoppy and it finishes refreshingly bitter. Overall I thought this was a very good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2003 Deep brown color, quickly fading head. Huge malt flavor with a sweet flavor and aroma. Very unique. Ends bitter with a toffee caramel thing.

It might call itself a brown, but it’s not my kind of one - really weird accents of fruit candies and odd, exotic spices in addition to more usual brown ale flavors. Too sophisticated? Is that possible?

Re rate: 12/11/03: Even better than I remembered. Yummy. Nicely malty sweet and not overly hopped. This is a great beer and second only to Immort Ale as the best that Dogfish Head has to offer.

This is a great brown ale. Possibly my favorite of the style. Dark brown in color. Tan head. Tasted like brown sugar and malt. Try this brew from a great brewery.

Cask. Awesome cask pour leaves a beautiful dark red/brown colored beer with an ample off-white head. An interesting combination of styles. Smooth as all hell. Nuts, caramel, soft fruit, sweet malts typical of the Scotch Ale. However, suddenly things change and there are plenty of hops. An interesting IPA/APA finish which comes as a shock. Interesting and amazing. A very nice drinking beer.

A rich brown ale with a great hop kick at the finish. I could drink many of these and it would be my new session beer if not for the price ($9.99/six pack in OH).

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2003 This is definitely a candidate for the new American Strong catagory, certainly a cross between several styles, nutty flavors as in a nut brown, slight hoppiess in the flavors & aftertaste like an IPA, and a very strong malty tone in the nose & flavors as well, definitely a fantastic brew
