In recent months, a beer shelf at Milwaukee’s great Discount Liquor re-filled with Dogfish Head brews after the company’s self-imposed departure from the state. Ahhh, how wonderful the return! This brown ale is pretty darn perfect for a cold November night, with the coffee and chocolate aromas heralding measured sweetness. Not that our town lacks for excellent beer, but thanks for coming back.

Loved it. Cola colour, off white head reluctantly coaxed out from the low carbonation. Aroma of toffee, coffee, muscovado sugar. Flavours of toasty, caramelised.. Something. Hops are in there, as is bitterness but not certain what or how much.

Bottle. Brown with medium tan head. Aroma of caramelized sugar, malt, and some hops. Medium/heavy body, heavy caramelized sugar sweetness upfront, moderate hop bitterness, raisins, some boozy notes, and a slight oily finish. Not my favorite offering.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
dark smells that are very subtle like coffee and chocolate,dark, can’t see through in pint glass, medium strong flavor of roasted malts, little chocolate....finishes stronger of coffee, can’ t taste the hops as much as I thought I would...good but nothing stands out as being wonderfully impressive...

12 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, with leather, toffee, and cherry. Taste/Palate: starts crisp, thick, and sweet, and finishes crisp, bitter, and slightly astringent. One of the best beers to come from Dogfish, IMO. Fantastic!
