COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2012
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’.

PorterPounder (7303) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2012
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.

radagast83 (7299) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Draft at the DFH Alehouse in Falls Church. Poured a golden color with a tiny white head. Aroma was... odd. Spice, herbs, wheat, malts, very earthy. Flavor was about the same - light, but also quite robust, with extremely earthy notes.

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

Strykzone (6717) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear golden with a smallish white head. A truly unique nose. Not sure what i smell. It has, again, a unique taste. Nutty, cocoa, more stuff I cannot describe. Typical dfh. This pushes the envelope.
