Draught at The Old Toad Dogfish Head Fest 5. Strange nose—toasted barley, popped barley breakfast cereal. Pale gold with copper tints. Flat. Starnge flavor or spice, cerewals, dried fruit, raisin (date?), cinnamon and nutmeg. weird but likeable. Very spicy and interesting.

draft at Coles’ Dogfish Head Frenzy, Buffalo NY. Golden pour, wierd aroma of some fruit, bread crust, wafers & light dog shit. Very strange univiting aroma. No wonder Greece kicked their ass. Strange Herbal, sweet, honey flavor. Interesting but far from enjoyable

1/1/12. Happy New Years! Why not celebrate with DFH’s latest gimmick? Clear golden pour, almost orange, with a small, fluffy off-white head that fades to a ring and laces in spotty chunks. Somewhat strange aroma that does in fact remind of baked bread, some floral aspects, and definitely some metallic tap water. Sweet flavor with touches of honey, toast, sweet flowers, and more metal. Meh. This may or may not make my top 5 list of beers made wirh Za’atar and Emmer Farro’.

"the base of this beer seems to share some similarities to another DFH 25 ouncer, Pangea...light yellow, fizzy, spiced. I was drawn to this because I like chamomile in beer and while it was present here, it was overshadowed by the fruit. A refreshing, interesting beer, but it was fairly simple, and had the flaw of being too prickly in the mouthfeel for my taste. For far less, DFH has better beers."

Bottle .. Had twice over the past few months .. . an interesting beer indeed .. . pours a hazy caramel .. good healthy foam .. . light spice, prune, yeast, wheat, raisin, and more spice .. . light mouth, quite effervescent .. . love the background of this beer but a novelty at best .. . . They told me I had type A blood, but it was a Type-O.

Pours gold with a white head. Smells of chamomile, some peachy hints, light citrus, wax. Tastes of beeswax, chamomile, spicy with some light wheat on the finish. Unusual.

Bottle: Skipping my usual rating style as I was killing myself to think of what this beer tasted like... it was bugging me and then it finally clicked, fresh pencil shavings. Its not as bad as it sounds. Also has a weird cinnamon flavor, with some notes of chamomile. Interesting to say the least.

Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml capped bottle. Pours a medium dark sparkling copper with a very slight head. Aroma is odd and vegetable-like. Pick up some burnt pumpkin, perhaps a date-like essence. Flavor is odd, but not unpleasant. Pick up a hint of butterscotch, some roasty meaty notes, some baked brown bread. Mouthfeel is just a tad thin. Not sure where this one was headed.
