Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale

Indian Brown Ale is "a cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale, and an American Brown". The beer checks in at 7.2% ABV, and 50 IBUs.

poured a dark brown, blackish color with a thumb width tan head. The nose had a lot of dark malts, and aromas of coffee and chocolate. The body is big, very malty, with a lot of sweetness and a lots of chocolate. As the malt dries out, the hops start to take over leading to a pretty dry finish.
Overall, this is a rich, complex beer. While the beer is quite smooth it is clearly a sipping beer. It may pair well with plenty of courses but it to me it is a true dessert beer. Another great brew from Dogfish.
