hobgoblin (163) - St-piphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2005
bottle. Redish deep brown color, with a tan head that goes off quickly. Smeels like brown sugar and malt and something i cant figure out (leather). Well hoped, taste like brown sugar a a hint of grapefruit and the alcohol is srtong on the finish (7.2%) and this beer makes my mouth dry. Nice beer but nothing extraordinary. Cette biere est dun brun tres fonce, presque noire, avec des reflets rouge mais, sont collet est tres mince et disparait rapidement. Odeur de malt et et de sucre (cassonade) et quelque cuose comme le cuir, je nai pu determiner ce que cetait. Au gout, elle a une bonne amertume, cassonade et un gaout assez prononcer qui sapparente au pamplemousse mais, lalcool est tres presente (7.2%) en fin de bouche et cette biere donne tres soif (dry). Cest bien mais rien dextraordinaire.

jb (3136) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Brown color, with reddish tint and lush tan head. In the beginning I was getting a lot of chocolate malt taste and some extra sweetness. Roasted taste in the palate along with caramel. As I kept drinking it tasted the hops more and more. Just about right for the sweetness. A well made beer. A little too sweet for me to drink all the time.

A great change on A IPA. The brown color and roaster malt along with the finishing hops makes this beer a great choice. An IPA with a great body. This hophead loved the brown IPA.

rickgordon (3870) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2004
Bottled. Very dark brown. Roasty, syrupy and nutty nose with that familiar DF-character, caramel is also apparent. Flavour is very roasty and tarry. Body is lively. Overall quite dry, especially in the finish.

Smell of coffee and ginger comes out fast, color is a deep brown with a tan head that fades down and films the sides of the glass. Chocolate and coffee dominate the flavor, almost matching that of a stout, but the body is much lighter, I would describe it as medium in comparison. The finish is a little bitter, with the molasses coming out with the hop flavor. Very refreshing and the body has a nice texture in your mouth. DFH just continues to be a solid provider.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Coffee, vanilla, some leather and malt in the aroma. Dark red in color with a fat cream head. Very rich in flavor and body with noticable alcohol in the sinus. Good malty flavors with raisen and plum. Brown suger and roast flavors also. Not bad, but a little unbalanced.

Deep brown, clear liquid. THin head. Nice nutty and roasted malt aroma. Flavor is a tinge sweet malt with carmel hints. Great finish. Bod is satin. Nice beer. 7.2% has a nice kick too.

this is yet another beautiful ruby red brew.(i have had alot lately.)when poured into a pint glass,it gave off almost no head to speak of.the first sniff let off wonderful sents of brown sugar,and carmel.very upfront and pleasing.the flavor was also very nice.with layers of chocolate,coffe brown sugar,carmel malts,and hops near the end.i must say this is top of the line for brown ales.
