Pretty good. Sugary in strange ways, similar to other dogfish head beers. A bit of a sour taste. Unique and good.

(Bottle) Pours a thin, almond head and a brown body. Nose of fresh hops. Flavours of raisins, hops and caramel malt. Good. Many thanks to Hopscotch for making this available to me...

A bit darker in color than your typical india pale ales. Very crisp, fresh hoppiness, but not overpowering. Excellent ale!

Brown in color. Hoppy and malty. Very hoppy. Its a pretty enjoyable brew. Alcohol is noticable in the flavor.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Smells of bitter chocolate, raisins, dates, malt, and hops. Dark brown with small head and strong oily lacing. Based upon the label and stated ingredients I knew this was going to be an interesting beer, and it is. Very complex flavor that initially strikes bitter senses flowing to mild sweet coffee and caramel ending with a hop bite. Very full palate of flavors from smoke, sour citrus, raisins and hints of caramel candy with very noticable alcohol presence. Very interesting brew but seems very young and unbalanced.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Clear and brown in color. Nice caramel/hop aroma. Noticable alcohol in flavor, with a good dose of hops and carmel. Not bad, but nothing that turns me on too much.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Aroma of alcohol, hops and tea leaves. Powerful Flavor, complicate mix of hop bitters, roasted coffee, nuts, dark malts, mollases and brown sugar. The finish leaves a slightly hoppy afterburn on the palate. A good, complex brew.

Reid (2474) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Bought in the 12 oz brown bottle..with the simple Dogfish Head label "A clean,well hopped brown ale with aromatic barley and carmelized brown sugar and whole leaf liberty and Goldings hops" Well should be quite a expierience! This brew has a wonderous appearance, pours a deep dark brown with a luscious creme coloured head that fades to a gorgeous lace down my glass. Great aroma of the carmelized sugar hits me as does the malts well done. Well I expected a taste adventure and boy oh boy did I get it! The malts show through and seem well toasted..nice coffee and liquorice//dark unsweetned chocolate tastes..then the wonderful hops take over nice fantastic in fact. very smooth on the tongue i like this. A most wonderful and very drinkable "mutant" style beer I say "mutant" because this appears to be a mutaion of a Nut brown ale and a strong IPA..a whole new species has evolved!!!

Poured a reddish brown color with a fluffy light tan head an dnice lacing. Roasted coffee, malt, and alcohol in the aroma. Sweet taste included hints of nuts, caramel, brown sugar, and hops all over. Slightly roasty finish.

On tap at the Moan and Dove. Dark ruby brown color with light tan head. This is certainly not a simple brown ale, but what else would you call it. Thick, heavy, almost too sweet however. Lots of malt with almost a Belgian or dubbel feel.
