Light hops, malts in the nose, it was very faint though, I could hardly smell anything. Pours brown with a faded white head. It is hoppy at first then there is a nice roasted malt flavor. It has a smokey aftertaste and was quite nice overall.

a very agressive brown ale.

Bottle. Big fluffy head slow to disapate. The dark rich looking color scared me into thinking it was a stout in hiding. In the end result it is sure not like a brown ale but way beyond my ability to classify. Complex. Fist strong with lots of carmel, coffee and sweetnes but finishes hoppy but yet mild.

Pours a very dark brown with creamy tan tan head. Aroma is sweet with brown sugar prominent. Notes of maple and caramel. Somewhat malty and hoppy. Moderately bitter, dry finish. Very good, complex beer.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Clear dark mahogany under a fairly stiff dark khaki head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted nuts, roasted malt (almost porter-like), pine oil and alcohol. Sweet toffee notes on the tongue at first followed by chocolate, malt, vanilla backed up by a welcome kick of hops. I thought the mouthfeel was just a bit thin given the flavor but the carbonation was just right and the finish was short, crisp and pleasantly bitter. Another winner from DH.

Dark Amber color with a thick tan head. Aroma is nutty, with a nice roasted malt character (chocolate, coffee, and caramel) along with some floral hops. Very balanced flavor. Lots of malts with a strong coffee taste and hints of chocolate, nuts, smoke, and caramel. There is also a lot of hops present - spices and grassy with a bitter alcohol biting finish. A great and complex brown ale.

A little darker than Coke to my eye. Fantastic but contradictory nose with a little hop spice mixed in with a roasted malt essence. Nice on the tongue. Reminds me favorably of Smuttynose Porter. Pretty great.

Looks like coke with a nice tan head. Flavor is very nice but a little on the hoppy side which is a trait im starting to savor. Chocolaty with hints of coffee. Aroma is that of semisweet choclate. wonderful!

A chocolatey and malty smooth beer, yet also pleasantly bitter. Its resembles as stout when it first hits your mouth, but finishes like an IPA. My favorite of the dogfish head so far. Very unique.
