Beautiful. Brown balanced head that laces down the glass like grandmas doiley. No bite or after bite or extra bitter. Just a nice balance of sweet, nutty malt that sooths and satisfys. My wife calls this the most social of all the dogfish samples weve had. Well hell.....Social

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Draught at Tylers in Chapel Hill, NC. Clear brown color with thin off white head. Smells mostly of artificial grape candy. Toasty, nutty flavor. Dry, but there is a hint of brown sugar flavor. Not their best offering.

Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown with an average frothy light brown head that lasted. Good roasted malt and molasses aroma. Medium body. Good sweet nutty flavor with a light bitter finish of long duration. Good brew.

12z bottle. Reddish brown with a thick, oliy, looking body and minimal white head. Strong sugar in the nose. Chocolate and cocoa. Cola and cookies, coffee and citrus. It has the body and effervescence of a cola. Coffee and caramel notes. Oily and dry. Finish is slightly sour with an alcohol burn.

Another well made beer from Dogfish Head. A roasty flavor that finished better than it started.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Rating #2000. Bottle. Tan small head that quickly dissipated with sparse lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a red hue. Aroma was malty, sweet, caramel, some coffee notes, roasty, and burnt. Flavor was sweet, malty, caramel, burnt, roasty, and dry. Mouthfeel was mildly tingly and dry. Medium body.

Hey I know its not quite to style but its a very enjoyable brew for anyone willing to live a little. More like a hoppy porter to my tastes but with a nutty character that asssures you they tried to make this some version of a brown ale. Rich mahogany color medium sized head. This one didnt last long.

wineandbrew (40) - Steilacoom, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle from Steilacoom Wine and Brew. Heres a beer that is fun, although I think the discription for me would be more like a mix between a Scottish beer, and a IPA but I think it has all the roasted qualities of a Porter (not a pale)... much darker than their Chicory Stout, very good beer!

This stuff looks great. Beautiful dark brown/red appearance with small tan head that leaves nice lacing around the glass. Love how it looks when theres a little light passing through it. Aroma isnt too strong, but there is something about it that turns me off. Molasses? At first sip, the taste comes on too sweet but after the hops come out, the finish comes together quite nicely. A bittersweet ale that will mainly appeal to those who can enjoy a sweeter beer.
