This is possibly my favorite beer out of Dogfish. Lots of flavor for a brown. Not too bitter but delicious. GREAT FINISH. I buy it every time I see it and will continue to do so.

On-tap in the Rogue Pub on Union St San Fransisco: 3rd Feb 2013.
Thought it looked like a Stout, dark brown with a good foaming head.
Malty molasses hit the nose and mouth, this has a sweet front: plenty of malty flavours as you dig into the brew. I got coffee and dark chocolate along with some dried candid fruit notes.
Good body thickness and feel to the beer, a pleasant and easy to drink brew.

Nuts, coffee, chocolate, and a little funk in the aroma that breathed off after a minute. Bittersweet flavor, with coffee, brown sugar, and some nutty roast. Hoppy, bitter finish. Good, but not great--I was a little disappointed given the rating.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours cola brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is heavy molasses and light coffee. Taste is very smooth but not overbearing molasses up front transforming into a creamy latte mid palate and hopp bitterness that faintly comes through in the finish. Alcohol portrays itself sweetly. Truly complex brown.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 Bottle. Pours a dark, dark brown. Nice tan head with low retention and lacing. Smells of mocha, espresso, raisins, toffee, malt. Tastes of espresso, mocha, slight raisin or fig, medium malt. Low carbonation, subtle crisp. Weak creamy finish. Nice twist on a brown ale.

Probably the best brown ale Iíve had so far. Great copper color, thick head after pour. Very sweet & refreshing! 3rd place on my ballot at Beer Night IV on 6/7/13.

Gorgeous dark brown body accompanied by a thick cappuccino froth. The nose is surprisingly light, considering the bold coffee and chicory notes to the hearty flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty, roasted aroma, with a sense of hop floral scent. Pours a nice brown with a diminishing White head. Smells of caramel, and brown sugar. Starts with roasted malt, moves to a sweet amber malt taste. Finishes with a bitter dry hop finish. Nice mouth feel for a brown ale. Complex yet simple. Nicely done brown ale.
