very sweet, smooth and just plain good. The honey flavor is great but the nine percent was a real surprise- another winner from dogfish head.

Pours a clear medium amber with a quickly dissipating off-white head with nice legs. Aroma is of honey, chardonay grapes, cinnamon and higher alcohols. Body is med. light. Flavor is med. sweet with some spiciness in the back of the throat. Can’t say that the alcohol is well hidden. The muscat grapes come out a little bit in the finish. Obviously no bitterness but as a whole it is well balanced. Interesting to say the least.

adrian910ss (2548) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Pours a golden copperish light color with a tiny quick fading white head. Aroma is very sweet with honey and grape dominance, with a hint of spice and alcohol. Taste is a mixture of bitter sweet honey with grapes. Alcohol can be slightly detected in rear of tongue. Different is the best way to describe this one. Not bad overall.

Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 I was curious what this beer was gonna offer. The first sip was sweet. Bitter-sweet honey which coats the rear of the tounge. The high alcohol was hidden nicely. The flavor was much more complex at a warmer temperature. The honey was overpowering..dripped all over my hand and my cat..brrrrouww!

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Slightly hazy deep amber hue and a quickly disappearing bubbly head. Grape nose immediately evident. Thick mouthfeel and flavor dominated by spice and grape. Slightly sweet aftertaste that lingers.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Bottle. Pours a copper like color with little to no head. head apparent was fizzy and white/clear. Nose is grapes. has a grape, wine nose to it. Taste is very syrupy, too much actually. Very thick but not in a good way. the grapes are there, soem juice like characteristics and a bit of caramel malt.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
12oz bottle. Packaged in Nov. (’04?) Poured into a Duvel tulip @ 59°. Pours orange with a small, bubby, haze "head." The aroma is orange and hops? The flavor is sweet orange, honey, and spice with a mildly hoppy and alcoholic finish. Maybe some grapes on the finish. There is a lot going on, but I can’t follow it all. Most like a tripel. This is sweet and powerful, with a good, but unusual flavor. DFH is certainly an adventurous brewer. Well done.

Midas Touch has a malt aroma combined with a wine bouquet. The color is a rich golden and an off white head. The head is bubbly and short lasting. The flavor has a maltiness. Also there is a wine like quality to the taste as the alcohol come through. The finish is cloying and pleasent.

The last of the beers brought over by Haddon 90 on his visit to our fair shores. This has a very good nose which has similarities with some of the other DFH beers, syrupy and quite hoppy. The flavour is a dry and clean one that does denote the use of honey in the fermentation process, but there is a good degree of complexity provided by the grapes. Well done DFH for a very pleasing malange of beer, wine and mead, it would be a welcome drink in place of a crisp white wine with a kilo of prawns down by the harbour.
