One of my favs. Aroma is brown sugar, pine, and dark fruits. Pours deep mahogany with a nice thick small head. Taste is nice and dark with roast nuts, brown sugar, sweet pine resin, and a nice bitter dark fruits. A truly nice ale.

Pours a dark brown with a nice creamy head. Aroma is sugar, malts, and some hops. Flavor is a nice malty roasted sweet flavor with lots of coffee and some hops too. Creamy kind of like a nitro beer. Awesome awesome balance. Really good, this. Similar to a black ipa.

Reviewed from notes. I’ve had this in pint glasses and a couple times in tulips. It’s always the same. The appearance was a nice dark brown color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and left some light semi - thick lacing in its wake. The smell was awesome as it had a super nice allocation of the Scottish peat - like smokey/roasty malts to the engraving bittersweet citrus hops to delightfully entice my nose to partake in more whiffs to get some light roasty caramel nuttiness about it. The taste replicates the smell pretty much exactly the same. On the palate, this one sits about a medium. The carbonation seems appropriately made for the style and shows a decent smoothness about it. Overall, what an absolutely amazing beer - three styles in one and we’ll done. Makes me want to move back East.

I am a big fan of dogfish and they always seem to come out with good stuff! This is complex but still easy to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. The bottle reviewed has a good 6 months on it, so not exactly fresh. However, the malty scotch ale notes really shine through here. Muted hops, as to be expected, but the roasted backbone is very enjoyable. Coffee and english toffee undertones with a definite sugary feel. Has a caramel note to the aroma. This is a complex, easy drinking yet eminently powerful brown ale. So much going on in here yet nothing is muddled. Would love to try this against a fresh bottle to see how the hopper element sits here but I can say that with 6 months of aging this is a delicious beer.

Malty. Caramel, toffee and chocolate flavors blended with brown sugar and spice. Notes of dark fruits, ginger root and cinnamon. Good carbonation.

Great ale. Flavor is a nice malty roast. Aroma is light. Smooth on the palate with a light aftertaste.
