9/20/2010: I remember trying this beer years ago and not liking it. Probably because I did not like beer with any type of hop presence until about halfway through my journey here on 365. Its been awhile and this is one of Dogfish’s most popular beers, so lets give it a go.

Indian Brown pours out real heavy almost like a porter. The smell surprisingly is a bunch of chocolate, and hops in the mix. The flavor to me is really split 50/50 between bittersweet chocolate, and sharp biting hops. Both flavors keep each other in check in a delicious way. Very full bodied for the style with average carbonation. If I didn’t know any better I would have assumed this was a hoppy porter. Never-the-less this was a very good beer.

Picture of the day: Not exactly a funny picture, but a wow picture. If money were not an object.
