One of the better brown ales Ive had. Like most Dogfish, a modest head, cream tinged with brown. Overall color a deep genuine brown. Light aroma. Nice balance of malt and hops, with hops edging out the malt. A slightly sweet start, wrapped in a nutty, roasty body finishing bitter. Moderate body. Overall pleasing drink. A beer to savor rather then guzzle.

Im not usually a big fan of brown ales, but DogfishHead has made one that I think I can grow to like. You have to stick your nose into this one to appreciate the wonderful brown sugar aroma. However, I think the flavor is a bit too sweet and sticky for me. Overall, a good beer.

Bottle. Clear dark crimson with a good white head and lacing. Whoever entered the cammercial description hit it with molasses and coffee with choclate as well in the aroma and flavor. Nice hopped up American Brown Ale. Great with chocolate.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2007 The aroma is quite roasty, but fairly organic and "puppy breath" smelling with notes of coffee and muted chocolate. The body is brown with a diminishing tan head. Fore is toasty and chocolate accented then it goes sweet through the middle with fruit accents and malt and finishes with a roasty bitterness. Lacks that take it home kilelr flavor concentration and lingering aftertaste, but a very drinkable brew.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle: Brown, slight ruby tinge, minor sudsy beige head, fairly weak lacing to the point of looking still. Strong malty aroma, nutty, hints of cocoa and very minor dark pitted fruit. Lactic sourness, malty, dry cocoa on the tongue. Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. Slightly nutty finish, roasted malts linger, minor cocoa and dark fruit aftertaste. Seems to thin out at the exit, otherwise not bad.

Bonus beer from a trade with Jonathan3584. Thanks Jonathan! Pours medium brown with ruby highlights..Slight tan head graces the top and laces the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, some brown sugar and a little hazelnut. Flavor is malty, caramel, chocolate malt, and a little brown sugar. On the palate this is thick for a nut brown. Very malt driven and it coats the mouth nicely. Enough hops to make it finish crisp and delicious. This is a very nice beer. I enjoyed it and it was very true to the style yet it strays enough to make it exciting.
