Dogfish Head out of Milton DE brews this nice India Brown Ale year-round and it has a nice 7.2% ABV.
I found this beer to pour out a nice dark brown color that transformed into a gorgeous ruby red when held up to the light. It had a thick off white head that laced on the glass and had nice retention. The aroma of this beer had some caramel, and chocolate tones to it as well as some brown sugar, and black licorice possibly. The taste of this beer is very smooth and it contained the same tones that are found in the aroma from start to finish maintaining an excellent balance. There is also a slightly bitter hop finish to it but it isn’t overwhelming by any means.
This is an excellent version of a brown ale, but keep in mind that this is also a hybrid brown as it contains a bit of an IPA character. The India Brown from Dogfish Head is known as one of the great beers that they produce and in my opinion it doesn’t disappoint and is well worth the try.
