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. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 14, 2006
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. ceejmeister (7) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006 does not count
Another well made beer from Dogfish Head. A roasty flavor that finished better than it started. hotstuff (5141) - 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. entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Hey I know itís not quite to style but itís 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 didnít last long.

Bottle from Steilacoom Wine and Brew. Hereís 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 thereís a little light passing through it. Aroma isnít 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. NewCastle1 (59) - Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle. Little to no head or lace that I noticed. Has a bown sugar, chocolat and rasin aroma. Taste is pretty much the same. Has a good bite to it. Not overpowering but itís there. Leaves some bitter aftertaste in my opinion. Good beer. Just not one of my favorites. bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2006
"Wow if you had not told me this was a brown ale i never would have guessed. Taste much more like an IPA ton of hops. Pours a amber color with average head that leaves quickly and leaves nice lacing. Sweet caramel aroma. Has a dry mouthfeel. Not my kind of beer but a good beer. " morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2006 Wow, this is a great beer and one of the best beers Iíve had. Aroma is good, but a little weak. Appearance is great; very dark reddish brown and tan head that has good lacing. A steal at just under $10 a six pack.
