Notes/Commercial Description:
Dippity Do is an American-style brown ale that is as fun to drink as it is to say. Hopped like a pale ale, medium-bodied and extremely satisfying, this beer has a beautiful rich brown color with slight caramel and roasty undertones. Dippity Do will pair well with many foods, especially red meat or anything fresh off the grill.

If you are a fan of pale ales, then we are certain that you will become a fan of Dippity Do!

Poured from the keg for my father's 60th birthday party.

Pours dark brown as expected, with an off-white head tinged with brown. Nice lacing throughout.

Smell is mellow yet fresh. Roast and coffee are predominent, with the slightest suggestion of hops in the background.

The flavor is nice and clean. Roasted flavors throughout, with some caramel sweetness make this a sipper or a swigger, good for dessert or session. The flavors are more full when it's a bit on the warm side. Mouthfeel does suffer a bit as it warms as it gets a bit sticky for some reason, but there is a sweet spot temperature wise with this brew where it all comes together superbly.

It seems like Dippity-Do is the signature brew from Throwback, and it fills it's role nicely. This was an excellent choice for a party keg.

On the bottom of the bottle I see a small white sticker that says: "DD-40 01/08/14"

From Johnnnieee.

Into a pint glass.

A: dark brown/close to black colored body with a one finger foamy white head that dies at a nice pace and leaves some nice lacing sticking cleanly around the sides of the glass

S: roasty coffee forward Brown Ale that pulls in some toast and toffee, faint bitter hops try to come through but stay in the background

T: it takes the previous flavors and adds a nice dark fruitiness to it, also there seems to be an element of Coca Cola coming in; long dark sweet fruity Coca-Cola like aftertaste and dry sweet sticky finish

M: sits about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality to it. carbonation runs pretty smooth and coats the tongue and mouth nicely

O: on the back, it says its "hopped like a pale ale," however, I really didn't get that as the malts and roasty tones compose the majority of the beer. If anything, it was a nice one to have on a cold winter's nice in Southeastern Alaska.

22 oz bottle poured into a nonic.
5.7% ABV, 38 IBUs

Thanks for the bottle Rochefort10NH!

A - My pour should have been much slower following the explosive hiss that resounded from the crack of the bottle cap. The half-pint of tan foam hovered above the beer for minutes, caking the pint in some of the thickest lace I've seen.

S - Light roast notes suggesting coffee and cocoa pull through a sharp carbon dioxide sting and finish of citrus American hops. Toffee and toast are interesting undertones to pair with such a hoppy aroma of mango and lemon. Additionally, there seems to be a faint trace of yeastiness.

T - Dippity Do's flavor is a little more harmonious than the aroma, subtly offering roasted notes behind the toast and bread which engages the American hop profile with a little more finesse. More malt driven here, citrus notes and light earthiness finish out.

M - Heavily carbonated, this brown ale has the feel of a macro lager with just a little more body as it finishes with a sharp bite. Dry malt and hops finish balancing with a touch of bitterness to tie it all together.

O - Take an initial first whiff and you're nostrils will be stinging from the CO2 but one it escapes a little more Dippity Do releases a somewhat disjointed nose. An interesting brown that showcases more malt in flavor, this brew finishes light feeling because of such high carbonation.

This beer was a dark brown color. There was a tan head with a bit of lace.

Mostly a caramel malt aroma, but there was a little bit of roasted malt present. Piney hops.

More caramel in the taste. Some coffee. A good deal of piney hops.

This was a nice beer. My only (mild) complaint was that everything seemed front-loaded in this beer. The taste and mouthfeel didn't grow on me.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a light, muddled, ruby brown color with a thick, chunky, foamy, light tan head that is big bubbled. Aromas are nutty and toffee sweet, with an overall roasting. Flavors are a bit more smoked, with a toffee backbone and some caramel highlights. The aftertaste is roasted and light, leading into a creamy, smooth, slightly lingering finish. Good, rich flavors, and vey easy to drink.

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Very dark brown almost black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Earthy malt nose, flavor is similar earthy malt and a little caramel. Lingering bitter aftertaste. $6.95 for a 22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a solid dark brown with brilliant ruby highlights when held to light. Creamy beige head shows moderate retention and lace. Smells of caramel brown sugar with a hint of chocolate and licorice. Earthy almost herbal hops break through the sweetness to provide a bit of balance. Taste is pretty much what the aroma promised. Caramel and brown sugar flavor up front give way to a bit of grass and earth. Finishes with a bit of chocolate and hint of ash. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a silky creamy mouthfeel. Solid brown ale with enough flavor to keep me interested. If they would put it into 6 packs I might consider purchasing it more often.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Dark root beer brown with a chunky tan head. Enough foam rings to dress my glass in a fine striped shirt of foam. Great retention.

Aroma is dark earth, cigarette butt roast malt, wet rotting log, cocoa and a big ol' handful a' nuts.

Lots of roast malt. Tobacco leaf and hazelnut. The roast malt wins the roast vs. earthy tug of war. And not a pleasant roast malt character at that (cigarette butts or coffee grins that have been sitting in the hot press all day.

Not the way I like my browns but a fine version for those whole like theirs with ample roast malt. I'm a nutty, toasty kinda guy.

My first from Throwback and while not my thing I'm looking forward to opening their other beers I grabbed at Bert's Better Beers. A brewery visit may be in order as they're pretty close by.
