A: Strong malt note followed by a hop note.
A: looks good. pour is a little thin. Head is creamy light tan. In the glass it looks thin dark brown.
T: Hits with some medium hop flavor which builds into the middle. Finish is malty with a hint of chocolate. Very nice. Flavors clash a little in the front but develop well. Unique. A little thin.
P: A little clash of flavors at the start. Body is light and thin. Finish is good.
Overall this is a solid beer and it is decently unique. Fun play between hops and malt. Drinks almost like a pale ale but has a chocolate finish.

Kólaszínű teste a kitöltést követően egészen feketébe hajlik, kakaóporos, rumos csokoládés, kávés, de leginkább nápolyis aromákkal van szegélyezve. Ízvilága remekül közvetíti a diós, földimogyoró-krémes, étcsokoládé bevonatos, ostyás mondanivalót, éppoly intenzív, mint az illata. Szerkezete jól passzol mindehhez, a közepes test visszafogott szénsavtartalommal párosulva kiváló terep a sötét csemege feltérképezéséhez. Kivételes brown ale, emlékezetes Dogfish Head darab.

The aroma smells a bit like molasses and the appearance is a rich brown. The taste is a little sweet with a nice mild hoppy finish. I have not had many variations of this beer type and found this selection to be fantastic!

Very good brown ale! Sweet with a little spice. They really mixed this one up and it all blended nicely. The scotch ale comes through wonderfully. High ABV goes unnoticed, maybe the slight sweetness is the reason for that. It’s an easy, enjoyable brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown beer with a nice, medium head. Aroma of walnut leaves, caramel, raisins, waffles, chocolate. Seems drier in the taste that it actually is with medium carbonation and an interesting, medium bitter walnut finish. The flavours are pretty the same with a solid touch of american hops. And here is a snag because the latter at some point stand out too much in a perfume fashion. Nevertheless, the beer is a really decent brown ale IPA specimen.
