It's good. I held it up to a dazzling Texas sun this weekend, and enjoyed the deep mahogany glow in the glass. Hops could've been more obvious (which is an odd thing to say about DFH beers; they like hops), but still it was tasty. At 7.2% ABV, it packs a wallop, too, so drink this one at home unless you've got a DD. I'd like to find more to say about this beer, but I'm not a big brown ale fan; let's say it's not quite as good as Ellie's Brown Ale from Avery or Brewhouse Brown Ale from Real Ale but still pretty darn good.
