What Would Eli Drink?
Dogfish Indian Brown

Dogfish Head – Indian Brown Ale

WWED Grade: A-

Appearance: Very dark – deep mahogany color. Clear, but dark. Thick – creamy light brown head.

Smell:  Roasted coffee. Subtle hops. Chocolate.

Taste: Oh – that’s delicious! The hops and barley are very well balanced. Defining flavors of both. Creates a unique taste that’s something between bittersweet chocolate and coffee.

Drinkability: Easy to drink. Very smooth.

ABV: 7.2%

Serving Type:  Bottle poured in glass


This was great. Unfortunately a rare find on the West Coast – otherwise I’d gladly have another! Makes other Brown Ales taste like water. Got sweeter towards the end of the glass – those brown sugars came out a bit more. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. Although, I wouldn’t say fits into the category of what I’d typically think of as a ‘Brown Ale’. If I were to drink this with my eyes closed – I’d guess it were more of a Porter. Call it what you like – I’d call it a great beer!
