I had the pleasure of drinking this unassuming beer at the Single Cut taproom recently. I believe this to be one of their sleepers. If I'm not mistaken it's one of their longest-running offerings (since day one maybe?) so while you don't get the buzz and hype that a seasonal might bring, with Dean Mahogany Ale you're just getting a solid, hoppy, delicious amber.

It looked great in the glass. Quite literally mahogany in color with a cream-colored head.

The aroma was wonderful, almost surprising. I can't explain it, I felt like it should have smelled toasted or something because it's almost a dark-beer, but it was a bit fruity if that makes any sense.

It's always hard for me to describe mouthfeel, unless I experience something truly offensive it's just not something I'm very good at determining. This beer was pleasant in my mouth, it was smooth and served at the right temperature, so I'll leave it at that.

This is definitely a pint I could drink multiples of, and I certainly did. The Single Cut lineup can be a tad daunting, perhaps even ambitious, but do not overlook this one, I think it's worth serious consideration as one of their best.

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane and another introduction to a new local brewery. Pacific Northwest hopped. A light reddish body, with a little head and lace. Big carbonation. Getting yeast and hops, also a little funky. Drinkable, not what I would expect from the style, still for me drinkable.

On tap at Tribeca Tap House, pours mahogany brown/reddish color with a 2 finger foamy tan head that faded slowly and left good foamy lacing and rings as it went down. Smells of fresh citrus and piney hops mixed with caramel, grapefruit, toffee, brown sugar and sweet malt; very hoppy and not what I expected based on it's looks. Tasted like it smells, with fresh citrus and piney hops mixed with orange peel, clementine, roasted grains, caramel, grapefruit, toffee, brown sugar and sweet malt; well balanced yet still pretty hoppy, it goes down very smooth and was very tasty and easy to drink.

First had: on tap at Rattle N Hum, NYC, NY

Medium reddish-brown pour, partially translucent, topped with a small, dense, off-white head; moderate retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, bready, herbal and floral hop notes. Similar taste, sweet caramel malts, toasted bread, floral and a bit earthy. Medium body, pretty easily drinkable, decent overall.
