An interesting "Brown Ale". Very hoppy. Dark color, and nice aroma. A fine brew.

Thickhead. Very dark brown color(obviously). I think this is Delaware’s answer to very famous English Brown Ale. Slightly sweet

interesting - has the looks of a brown ale - doesn’t taste like one much though. medium to thick body - backbone seems more brown sugary than malty though. well hopped - but not really quite to "indian" levels... not terribly complex in flavor. comes across like a scotch ale with a bit more bitterness too it. enjoyable.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 10, 2002
Fine creamy head atop a darker-than-usual nearly opaque brown surface. Nose hints of hops, lots of caramel and nuts. Flavor rich and I thought fairly typical of the style; like Shelter this is more restrained than most DFH products. More hoppy than usual for the style; body seems a little light. Good, but does not compare favorably to McNeills’ Slopbucket Double Brown, my favorite "strong" brown from the USA.

A brown ale with a scotch ale twist and hoppy bite. Nice, rich caramel flavor, but the alcohol was overly apparent.

Dark brown/black color, medium head. Heavily hopped, medium malts. Roasted malts with “caramelized brown sugars”. Heavily hopped, intense malt flavor. A cross between an IPA and a brown ale (Scotch Ale). It has the maltyness of a scotch ale with the hop kick of an IPA. Interesting beer. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is bitter, somewhat malty.

Brown w/ a tan head, slightly sweet and malty w/ a slight cocoa aroma. An enjoyable beer.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2002
Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head that doesn’t last long. Very sweet tasting, but the hops, malts and carbonation of this brew are in perfect balance. Very smooth and highly drinkable, the high ABV may sneak up on you.

Sweet chocolate chip muffin this morning my dear?...And how about a dash of clean hops to give some little kick...A quiet nutty smoke on your coffee?...
