I’m not a raging dogfish fan, but this ones pretty good. Nice deep dark pour with full head. Nose is full roasted malt with a fairly nice hop. Good chocolate presence. Flavor is rich and smooth all at once. Velvet-like. Good chocolate and hop balance. Liking this one.. Nice

12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a dark red brown with a very thin, short lived, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and liquorice. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, brown sugar, dark chocolate and liquorice with a bitter, hoppy finish. Full body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Agree with the malty and hoppy taste. Didn't get much nose. Nice beer. Smooth on the palate.

Favorite Dogfish Head so far. Easier to drink than an IPA but still packs a ton of (slightly sweet) flavor.

Bottle. Brown pour with off white head. Smells of roasted malt, fruit and slight alcohol. Hops come through more on the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale has a very thick, crackly-sounding, beige head, a dark brown (with lighter, ruby-brown highlights), and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, dark bread crust, nuts, and malt. Taste is of a noticeable charred roastiness, sweet brown bread crust, some nut, licorice, and dark-roasted malt. Bitterness is there, and it increases. Mouthfeel is medium, and Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale finishes semi-dry, not very alcoholic, and easy drinking. RJT

Brown pour from a 12oz bottle. Slight white head. Roasted malt and slight coffee nose. Big malty beer with some big hops. Quite nice!

Now this. This my friends is a brown ale. For me, it is right there with Bell’s which I think is about as good a brown ale as it comes. A deep rubby brown beer with a thick creamy tan head that lingers through my tasting process. Smells of sweet carmalized roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Rich roasted, burnt malt taste, sweet. Coffee essence follows and chocolate brings up the rear. No distinct flavor in the hops. This is a full body beer with some alcohol warming on finish. This is an excellent fall beer that compliments both English styles very well and the autumn season itself. Drink well my friends
