P: 12oz bottle into a Dogfish Head signature glass.
A: Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with some lighter highlights and a creamy single finger light brown head. Lacing is okay and hangs around for the whole glass.
S: Roasted malt, some caramel, burnt sugar and a hint of alcohol on the back-end.
T: Lots of roasted malt that finishes sweet. A nice balance of sweet and bitter, neither overpowers but this beer leans to being on the sweet side. Hints of dark chocolate and coffee but they aren't upfront. It feels like this beer is well hopped but the choice of hops pairs so well with the other flavors that it brings everything together vs adding another layer of distinct flavors.
M: Medium body and carbonation. Coats your mouth nicely but the flavors don't hang around for long. Very smooth and drinkable.
O: An intense but deceivingly drinkable brown ale. All of the components come together to form a great and unique ABA. This beer would stand up to a really hardy meal but is also delicate enough to have with dessert, something chocolate would be nice. This has always been and continues to be one of my favorite brown ales. Buy this beer!
