3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mildly herbal and medicinal with a sweet edge from the honey. Fragrant and slightly floral. You get a bit of the pomegranate, but it’s not overpowering. Another interesting beer from DFH.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured dark copper with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate roasted malt, dark fruit and earthy aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy dark sweet flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a complex and one of a kind beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thnx to Ed583, @WWT II. Pours a clear amber beer with a small of white head that lasts pretty long. Aroma is sugary, sweet and malty. Hints of caramel and toffee are present. Flavour is sweet and sour, raisins and honey are defintely present in the flavours. Watery palate, yet full flavoured. Decent brew but I’ve had better DFH.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-copper with good, foamy, beige head, fast dissipating with minimal legs / Curious, complex nose of honey, spun sugar, sage, lavender, cinnamon, pomegranate, nut / Medium body, somewhat thin, sweet with minimal hopping but not cloying / Flavors of black tea, honey, spun sugar, lavender, sage, oregano, ginger, orange peel, pomegranate, / As with other quirky DH releases, I give them great credit for pushing the brewing art as they do, but I don’t really want to have another. Could be nice as a digestif, though.
