Belgrave (30) - Truro, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a bubbly ruby-black with an average size light-brown head. Aroma of malt, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, spices, hops and a little sourness. Smells wonderful. Flavour follows the aroma but is a little mild-- it needs a little more bite. Medium body with a smooth finish.

A good dark beer with lots of coffee/chicory flavor. Sweet taste, malts overtake the hops. Medium body, not too thick. Tried this a while back so basing this review on memory, but I do remember liking this more than most other coffee stouts I tried. Not sure if Iíd buy it again though for the price, as its on the lower side for ABV%, and I prefer slightly heavier stouts in the 6-8% range. Glad I tried it though, as I am becoming a fan of DFH.

Old rating. Dark pour. Char, smoke, licorice, coffee, earthiness. Pretty decent bite. Packs a little punch, nice beer.

willisread (3293) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Opaque black pour with a big tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, grilled greens, pepper, star anise and toasted spices. Medium body. Tastes more of the same with roasted coffee and more spice coming out as it warms up. Bold and flavorful...canít believe this is only 5%.

Not a huge fan. The color is a bit dark and the flavor is strong but not my cup of tea

Bottle thanks to Alex. Pours a dark brown ruby with no head. The aroma is smoke, roasted malt. Thin mouthfeel with roast, smoke, licorice, good.

trapped (3086) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 25, 2014
Draught. Inky black with small beige foamy head, strong coffee aroma, low carbonation, somewhat flat coffee dominant taste, thin body, longish finish with bitter coffee beans aftertaste. Good start disappointing finish.

"i definitely like licorice in my dark beer. it mellows the beer while adding another layer. i also love cascade hops. the chicory is weird, but i really liked it. this is a complex little beer, thatís for sure. havenít seen it in a while, but iíll buy it again if i do. 3/09 - great on tap as well. bigger body and complexity than a 5.2% beer suggests."

Not really my favorite offering from dogfish. Has a weird stale sort of flavor that I think is actually the chicory. Otherwise roasty and fairly dry.

3.6
closey22 (1914) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Black little rimming beige head; aroma is slightly earthy and smoky/peaty; Flava is roasty malt hint of Chocate and smoke; feels light for a stout and fizzy; finishes tangy malty grainy
