COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Original C.D.A., Dick Danger Ale is a non-intrusive dark ale which defies all style guidelines. A large percentage of black malt give this distinctive ale its dark brown/black color and slightly roasted flavor. The Magnum hops provide a backbone of bitterness and large late additions of Mt. Hood hops lend good flavor and aroma in the finish. Dick Danger Ale is Dick’s Brewing flagship beer and is the first beer created by late Founder, Dick Young.

Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Serving: from tap at Stellar Pizza, Ale, and Cocktails. Aroma: light floral hops. Appearance: small, light brown, initial head that quickly dissipated. No lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red/brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, fruity, initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good.

Bottle from Lets Pour. Brown ale with a nice apple taste to it. Pretty good and easy to drink at 5%. Better than the ratings on this.

3.4
trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap pours a dark brown color with a tan head that leaves ok lacing. Smells of roasted malt, banana, chocolate and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a nut and Belgian yeast flavor. Mouthfeel is heavy and watery with ok carbonation. Overall this is a pretty good brown ale with a Belgian twist but falls short on the appearance and palate.

Pours a dark dark brown with some deep ruby hues, moderate tannish head. Malty sweet, flavors of raisins and dark toffee, some muddled unspecific sharp caramel twang. Esthery finish, belgian notes abound with peppery and phenolic clove-like flavors, slightly slick mouthfeel. Bittering is a bit lacking and could use a bit more to balance out the sweetness.

3.1
maekchu (3847) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle. Light chocolate aroma with some sweet candy and cola. Dark translucent brown. Malty initial; mild sugary sweetness in mid; finish is also sweet and somewhat balanced. A little bit too sweet overall. Not bad though

3.1
reebtogi (6235) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
355ml bottle pours dark brown in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves a few patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma is toasty grains and caramel with some hints of chocolate and earthy notes. Taste is a toasty malt and earthy hop bitterness with a malty sweet backbone. LIght to medium body with loads of carbonation. A pretty nice brown ale, but certainly not one of the best that I have tried.

3.1
Dogbrick (12918) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Clear dark brown pour with a medium foamy beige head that evaporates steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasty malt and caramel. Light-bodied with a sweet character and notes of malt, toffee and Trix cereal. The finish is short and malty with a somewhat cloying sweetness left behind. Just average overall.

3.1
NachlamSie (3466) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Pint at Summit Public House. Pours brown with a white head. The aroma is nutty with brief hoppiness, smells a little metallic but not offputting. The flavor has notes of chocolate, almonds toffee. This is malty and approachable, not robust or hefty, not particularly rewarding. I guess that could apply to many brown ales for me.
