3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Rehoboth. Like so many DFH beers, I don’t quite know whether I like the beer, our just the experience. Chocolate wine beer. That’s what it tastes like. Grapes, wine tannins, chocolate with a sour finish. Worth trying.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow dark malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of spices chocolate brown malt and fruity. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
