Pours reddish Brown with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts with hint of chocolate. Taste like a standard brown but with more hops on the back end than your standard brown. ----Hophaze out

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

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
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

355ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from April 2013. Sweetness in the aroma is contrasted by some bitterness in the flavour. Well brewed malty brown ale with a boozy finish.
