Working with our archeologist friend Dr. Pat McGovern, this beer was created to incorporate the ancient ingredients and techniques described in Egyptian hieroglyphics. It was brewed to 11.4Plato with Emmer (an ancient form of wheat) and loaves of hearth baked bread and flavored with dom-palm fruit, chamomile, and zatar. Fermentation was carried out by a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain captured by Sam and Floris during a recent trip to Egypt. ABV went from 5 to 4.5%.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has lots of earthy grains with some toast and a good amount cereal. Flavor is full of nuttiness with a bit of cereal and earthy grains.

tepid tan, transparent. Odd spice: wood, stale, grassy. Flavor is flat, spice and sugar, bit of wood. Thin, oppressive body.

lamas (1468) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 7, 2012
750mL bottle. A clear amber pour with a smallish beige head. A fresh & crisp aroma of peaches, wheat, light cream, caramel, and lemons. Goes down thin and crisp. Sweet and fruity upfront taste-wise with some peaches and apricots. A little crackery and lightly bready in the middle. A yeasty tanginess at the end with some lemon. Herbal tea qualities here and there. A unique wheaty/graininess throughout. Light, crisp, and refreshing.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Aroma of bread, chamomile, and slight yeast. Pours pilsner blonde with a sizable head. Taste is sweet and herbal. Nice yeasty notes in there. Drinkable but weird.

BeerandBlues2 (10908) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle shared by Travlr. Aroma is biscuit malt with heavy spice notes and fruity esters. Flavor is malt, spices, hops and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 6, 2012
1st Batch, Vintage 2011. 750mL capped bottle. Clear, pour, bright orange color, thin white head. Aroma of a can of tuna (in spring water, of course). Some scent of herbal tea (chamomile), and an off-wheat grainy smell. Tastes of stale chamomile flowers, some of the odd-wheat grain that is in the nose. Then it all finishes up with a odd spiciness on the palate. Overly sessionable body, very light, low ABV; makes this welcoming. Love the herbal tea character with the stale bread notes. Love it. Some of the other ratings I’ve read on this beer have been against the beer. Overall, this is one of the best "unique" off-center ingredient beers from DFH that I’ve truly enjoyed.
This beer was my way of celebrating Epiphany Day.

pineypower (2791) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Tap at the Porch Key West into a snifter. Pours a moderate golden color with a well carbonated body and a small white head. Aroma is of some odd meaty notes, spice coriander, light citrus, bread and odd herbal notes. Taste is clean, wheat malts, coriander, light lemon peel, odd spicy notes, some herbs and an underlying earthy taste. Definitely an interesting beer.

Clear orange colour and crappy head. Roasty smell. Grainy and slightly sour with some earthy muddy flavours in the finish. Foamy.
