Dark brown colour, mediumszied beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, and some fruity hops. Flavour is alcohol, malts and hops in a mix, where alcohol is quite aggressive.
Tap at Busboys and Poets. Very dark maroon with a medium beige head that lingers. Aroma of cocoa and vanilla. Flavor is butterscotch at first, then roasted coffee and pine nuts. Very rich and tasty. On of the nicer Dogfish Heads. madmitch76 (26413) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011

Dark brown clear beer. Smooth and rich. Creamy malt. Just a light touch of hop in the smooth finish. A plain beer but flavoursome and well executed.

A bottle from the same batch as my original tasting. So nearly 4 years old. Semi sweet malts - nice mellow chocolate and coffee. Whisper of orange. A little cream. Can’t detect any oxidisation. Pretty well aged and rounded off. Still very enjoyable.

Brown, big maltiness, somewhat sweet and very round. Defies any attempt of classification. Very interesting brewery.
