Ding Ding Ding, Fight! Indian Brown Ale went down like an entire tribe of Cherokees doing a rain dance down my throat, and kicking the shit out of it the entire way. This was a struggle, as you could see by the slow start followed by the “Point of no Return” where I decided it was getting finished whether it liked it or not. It’s got a fairly high ABV for a brown ale, and there’s no getting away from it. I opened another immediately though, because this brew is delicious
How Much: 8
I. Will. Be. Looking. This. Way. Again. I dropped $10.99 for this 6-pack. 11 Bones isn’t too shabby for a Team Chug Stamped beer. A beer of this caliber could easily be sold for 12 or 13, but 11? Sign me up. When I’m looking for a good winter warming brew but don’t want to deal with any cinnamon or other shit like this, I’ll be looking for an Indian Brown Ale
Uhhh…Taste: 9
Brown Ales are meant to be somewhat low key, medium mouthfeel, low abv, and heavy on the malts. Dogfish took this standard and said “Eehhhh, let’s spice that up a notch.” A brewery known for being “Off-Centered” took this standard ale style and flipped it on it’s head. Indian Brown Ale has a hop content like an IPA, a malt content like a scotch ale, and the color and mouthfeel of an American Brown. It’s a prefect blend of BIG flavor, medium to high carbonation, solid hop presence, and overall badassery. If any Brown Ale deserves the Team Chug Stamp of Approval, it’s Indian Brown. Go get it right now. Don’t even read the rest of this post, most of it is just filler anyway
Gettability: 7
Dogfish Head is a name that will be available in all 50 states. It will be. It’s all “that good”. But for now it’s available in 28 states, and Indian Brown is in their year-round collection

Overall Rating:   9.4
