This is what i like to see when i look for the best brown ales, rogues #1 brown ale should take notes, this is a dark ruby colour, some lacing, lacking head, but who cares..good pleasing smell...sweet bitterness, a winner and highly recomended if u want a solid brown brew!

Whoa -- knocked my socks off. A lovely deep chocolate colored brown with a nutty, coffee like nose. Taste was very sweet and hoppy presence Liberty and Warrior probably. Brown sugar was a tad overdone, a tad sour, and the alcohol presence was noticeable, but this beer was mightly and enjoyable. Looks, smells and tastes great -- thats all there is to it. Another in my rotation now...

Bottle. Pours darker than I had expected. Coffee, nutty, caramel and some spices in the nose. Good aroma. It was much roastier than I though, especially for something classified as a brown. (Although classifying DFH isnt the easiest task.) It wasnt as hoppy as Id have expected, but the hops were present. It was also a little sour (not in a good way), a little malty sweet, and some caramel and brown sugar ... hmmm, just like the label says. Funny thing is, I had this both out of the glass and straight from the bottle, and the bottle tasted a bit better. Go figure.

A nice brown ale with plenty of hops. As mentioned in the description it has the typical flavors/aromas that you would come to expect in a decent brown ale, especially molasses, brown sugar, and caramel. But they dont mention that there is also lots of hoppy notes that make this beer truly stand out. Delicious.

NachlamSie (3443) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 bottle. Pours a very rich, deep, dark brown with a great tan head. The aroma is of hops and plenty of roasted barley. It goes down very smooth and the hops blend excellently with the roastiness. This is a darn good brown. [Nov. 30, 2007]-------� a tasty brew! Its full bodied with up front flavors of soy sauce, bakers chocolate, and pine. DFHs brown ale does not suffer from any of the flaws I may be weary of, given the style, but goes the extra mile by delivering a roasty, bitter, savory ale.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet with molasses, dark fruits and cocoa. Flavor is balanced with coffee, cocoa, special-b malt? (raisins), plums, moderate amounts of spicy, floral hops. Medium to full-bodied and moderately carbonated. Leaves you lips a little sticky. A very good brown that closely resembles a porter. Im glad it is now available in Texas so that I can put it in my rotation on occasion.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2006 Dark brown with a huge off-white head. An abundance of sweet caramel with hints of chocolate and coffee, there is also a strong presence of hops, this balance of malt and hops creates a combination that works very well. This is a fine beer, one of my new favorites.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Poursa lovely dark brown with a lasting white head. Aroma has coffee, molasses, and a good amount of hops. Sweet taste with a bitter finish. Its always nice to read a brewers description of the flavor and agree with all they said. I didnt get much ginger in the flavor but theres definitely coffee, molasses, rasins, and chocolate. A great interpretation of Brown Ale.

I was dissapointed with this beer. I absolutely love Dogfish, but I thought this beer was not up to their standard. It had a nice malty nose with hits of coffee and dark chocolet and pepper. The body was decent, but the flavor was just not there for me. I to me this was reminicent of a home brew trying to hit many different styles, but not hitting any one.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Deep and dark in the color with a big diminishing head. Bitter dark chocolate in the nose, roasted grain heavy in the aroma. Semi-sweet complex flavors, caramel chocolate, malts, roasted barley. Hops come through in the end, a coffee flavor lingers on the palate. AN interesting blend, very drinkable. Would be very nice with roasted poultry, will seek out again during thanksgiving a great complement.
