Good sweet maltiness in the flavor, reminscent of brown sugar and candy. Nice brown color, though the most noticeable aspect is the almost complete lack of a head on this one. Also lacks a bit in the creaminess department. A good brown, but nothing phenomenal.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2003 Deep, I mean deep brown color, nice full beige head and sheets of lace, sweet malt nose with hints of caramel. The front sweet, maybe a bit to sweet, mild carbonation, the middle fresh, the finish a bit hop spicy. A real nice beer, but just a tad to sweet? thanks Venom.

Very good brown ale. More like strong american brown than anything else. I love the carmelized flavor and the hop presence.

Rerated - Brown sugar, sweet finish. I found it to be a bit too sweet to the point of feeling heavy.

Black-stout like color; Rocky head that didnít stick around to say hello; No notes for aroma? Sweet, brown sugar to start, nice hops and very subtle nuts thankfully. The alcohol was present and warming. Again, thin palate. Damn it! Thanks as always to the greatness of VENOM!

Re-rating after another try. Boy have I come a long way. Fairly well hopped. Dark ruby color with little head. Good hop aroma with maltiness apparent. Burnt toffee flavors abundant. Quite sweet with hop flavor in the background. Quite heavy on the palate. A good beer, but nothing incredible.

Lovely hopping on this one with the characteristic toasted barley of the other Dogfish Heads Iíve had. Dry finish, very hearty. And that colour, deep red brown. A very unique product.

A dark brown going toward black color and a light head graced this ale. The bouquet was slightly alcoholic and very fruity. Indian Brown Ale hovered between slick and syrupy in mouthfeel. This beer was somewhat flat on the palate and lacking signifigant flavor. A somewhat sweet malty taste was apparent along with hints ranging from maple to caramel.
