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.

Great deep brown color with red accents topped with a medium thick to thick creamy lasting head with lots of lace. Slightly sweet malty aroma with a slight coffee aroma and hoppy accents. Strong malty flavor with coffee accents and a touch of alcohol. Good coffee flavored finish. Slightly warming, full bodied with a slight dryness.

Hmmmmm. Poured a clear ruby brown with a tannish white head. Left some nice lacing and had good head retention. Chocolate and malty aroma. Too many oddly paired flavors for me - sweetness, chocolate, malt, bubble gum, hops, and nuttiness. Bitter and chocolate aftertaste. Slightly chalky mouthfeel.

Deep brown colour with a tan head. Mellow chocolate aroma. Healthy hop bitterness with nice nutty toasty malt notes. Great balance, complexity, and mouthfeel.

Pours a dark reddish color with a small but long-lasting head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly sweet. Flavor is unusually hoppy for a brown ale (at least in my humble opinion), but good, with a decent amount of malt and brown sugar in the flavor as well. Overall a very good brown ale. Would definitely have it again.

The aroma first gave off a bubblegum (Belgian yeast maybe) tone, and then a hops bitterness one. The flavor was slightly acidic, and malty sweet...different. Some kind of spice is present...similar to cinnamon!? Dark brown color with a very small, tight head.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2004 wow... my second beer from this brewery and I think I like their style. This brew, like the other I tried, is something out the ordinary, but is reminiscent of a few styles as the description states. Tasty goodness

This beer is dark brown (almost black) with flecks of ruby and has perfect clarity. The head is thin, cappuccino-colored and quickly dissipating. The nose is somewhat aggressive with strong hints of citrusy hops and coffee with a slight nuance of burnt grains. The medium-bodied palate also carries the strong nuance of coffee, subtle hop astringency and wonderful sweet malt, finishing well with a lovely bitter/sweet balance.
