dark brown color with a thin head; very smooth with a definite coffee taste and a lingering bitterness

355ml bottle (Ebrowarium.pl) (5:4:4:2:9=2.4)
Very savoury aroma, soy, but also very sweet. Dark red, persistent small tight beige head. Dead palate, slickish from sugars, carbonation does nothing to lift it. Nasty soapy taste, some savoury soy mushroom and sugar mess. Only plus is that it covers the 7.2% behind the mess, but deep down this is a terrible ale.

Draft in Pittsburgh before the Ed Sheehan show. Pours a dark brown with generous head. Roasted malt, floral hop, brown sugar, caramel. Medium body. Medium light bitter. Nice texture. It's been awhile since I've he this one but it is still good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12floz bottle, no date, $1.75 paid as a single, pint glass. Appears a medium-dark brown with some amber glow at the bottom. Head forms a small layer and retains it character. Firmly a brown ale in the nose, aromas of brown sugar and mild roasted malts noted. A fine American brown, resin, tree bark, pine, and faint cocoa flavors comprise this fullish bodied and fairly hoppy dark ale.

Pours deep cloudy brown with low tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, sugar, citrus. Taste is roasty, mild lingering bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

I'm sorry, I just dont agree. All the hops they advertise here get lost on this thick syrupy molasses with a bitter rotten walnut finish. No, not for me. It sounded great, tasted awful. Its almost like it wanted to be a stout, but it just wasn't. I made it bout 7-8 sips in before i called it quits n dumped it. I am a broke ass law student and cant afford to throw away top dollar brew... But life's too short to drink beer u just dont like, even if ya really wanted to. Sorry dogfish, I still love you.

BeardedAvenger (1027) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2017
Keg at Beaverfest. Subtle is how I'd sum this beer up. Less sugar than I expected in aroma, perhaps some burnt sugar. Otherwise malt, coffee and nuts. Light bitter taste whicb grows in strength. Light-medium bodied. Slock with a sticky residue. Abrupt finish. Good but too subtle to have too much impact.

3.6
MavDunk (108) - - SEP 6, 2017
Poured from a bottle. Dark brown in color but you can see through it a bit. Head is on the beige side. Nose is malt and coffee as well as caramel and a bit of booziness. Some lighter notes that are hard to place as well. Taste leans towards brown/scotch ale. Definite coffee and malts as well as brown sugar and raisin. Toward the end there is a crisper hoppiness. Interesting beer. More dominated by the darker notes than expected.
