chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2010
12-oz bottle. A: The ale is a dark mahogany color, so deep red that appears black from afar. A very tall rocky and persistent tan head. Excellent lacing. A: Highly aromatic. The nose is malty, thick with a smoky undertone that drips with peat and alcohol-soaked cherries. Caramel malts add further heft to the body. T: A balanced smoky brown beer. Darker malts, toasted with chocolate, coffee and caramel, lead the way. They are followed almost immediately with a palpable smoky flavor. The result is thick and almost coarse brew. Hop flavor manages to peak through the malts and smoke but just barely. A very enjoyable drink. P: The mouthfeel is full, smoky and thick, but not so heavy that it is burdensome. I was edxpecting a run of the mill brown ale but, knowing DFH, I should have known otherwise. Finish is fairly dry. P: They label is a brown ale, but it sure tastes like a scotch ale. The finish is not heavy so you go right back for another drink. Excellent balance overall.

Started drinking it too cold. It was 10 degrees in my garage. As it warmed, I loved this beer. Chocolate and coffee on the nose. Nothing like a dark IPA, dont know why its named what it is.

jjsint (2576) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2016
Keg at Barcade, St Marks Place, Manhattan. Dark brown with some translucency. A gorgeous cream-coloured head leaves lots of lacing. Very little aroma: some resin, some soft citrus, some oak. Taste is much more pronounced: the malty sweetness and oaky umami combine with a well-judged fresh hop bitterness. Slight metallic note in the long finish. A mixed bag, but a mixed bag at a high level. Imminently quaffable.

Aromas of lemon and grapefruit, with wet leaves and hazelnut chocolate. Taste is hazelnut, milk chocolate, raisin skin, grapefruit, then a moderate piney hop bite with some wet leaves.
